Arcade Build

So most of you guys know that I've been building a Arcade Machine.
One day I decided fuck it I'm gonna build me an arcade machine so I went out and bought some wood, metal, and all the other shit.
It took me a month but it's finally done!

I put up a quick site for it if you want to check out all the pics.


It's running Mame 0.131 with Mala frontend on a Pentium D 3.0 GHz with a 128 ATI 9600 and 1Gig of memory.

I tried to run it on a P3 500Mhz with 768 RAM and a 128 Nvida FX 5200 but that wasn't happening. So I then tried a P4 1.6 with 768 RAM ( Compaq )
that actually worked ok but I wanted it to run with no hicups at all. So I swaped the PC I had at the CarWash with the Compaq :)

You cheap bastard. Buy a proper cpu. You don't need it to double as a space heater year-round.

Galaga! use the no fire egg/glitch whatever it is!
nice job, I have set out to do this many times, never have gotten that far :P
I did make me a Ghetto Stick once, got a keyboard emu and some Happs buttons and controls put them in a little piece of plywood, was awesome!

Thanks man,

It brings back some good memories. Sneaking quarters from mommy and using up all my paperboy money to run off to the arcade. You should just suck it up and do it man! That coffee table next to the couch might make a good mame cab :)

My kids absolutely love this thing, they haven't touched the Wii or 360 since I finished it. Even the wife who was hell set against me building this has dived in and has become the Burger Time champ lol!
