Xavix Bowling Platform

Well, I've done it now. Xavix Bowling has me so hooked that I just cant let it alone. I have decided to take the plunge and make it as immersive as possible. I have decided to purchase a small box of laminate flooring (on sale at Home Depot for $43.00). I added a foul line and some alignment arrows simply using electrical tape cut outs. The overall effect looks great and my average score has jumped from the 140's to the low 200's. The alignment arrows really translate great into the games ball-roll alignment. My next step will probably be wiring a connector and extensions into the XavixPort so I can attach external switch wiring and buttons. I plan to attach large arcade cabinet style buttons to a stand-alone control surface that will be easy for the bowler to access while playing the game without having to walk up to the XavixPort to change a ball spin strength settings and selecting new game options.
