I've been debating back and forth about what I can do in my spare time. I've decided to build my own MAME cabinet fully loaded from ground up. I was wondering if anyone else had a MAME cabinet or a regular arcade cabinet.

Now the only question I have is - Coctail or Up-right?

What classic games should be added aswell?



XBLA has nothing on this :) I have a feeling it will be the talk of the parties :drunk

Good point - sadly enough I never thought about that. I'm going to go for a upright with 2 players. In the middle I'll also put a trackball for games like GoldenTee. If it goes well I'll try to make alot of them in different styles.

Orgasm much?

EDIT: ']sorryy... but uhhm whats a mame cabinet

Basically an arcade cabinet with multiple games using an roms, emulator, and PC.

I'm going to have more then one game inside my first one - Maybe more then MAME, even NES,SNES,N64,DreamCast,XBOX! As for my next ones after that - I'll make Custom side panels and marqees for certain games. Ultimate Mortal Kombat with all mortal kombats starting from 1 would be sick!

Just make sure you stick around here to post photo's after you've done it ;)

Of course - I could never leave you Webby. :boxerI'll be sure to take pictures and layout my progress.

Those 2 games where exactly what I was thinking about. Also - it will have internet, so I can use it as a regular PC. Ultimate Cabinet?


EDIT: here is a cabinet running Chankast, an Dreamcast Emulator for PC (CvS2)

off topic-just notcied your from jacksonvile. are you by any chance a jaguars fan??? they certainly are hard to come by :(...
i wish i lved in jacksonville its so hard to find anything jaguars here in k.c.

on topic- i think those emulators are illegal so thats why the clip was only like a minute long... not sure though...

@Legion: Thanks buddy! :)

@Fonkey Monkey: GO JAGS! and from my understanding... Emulators and roms aren't illegal if you have possession of the original game.

I'm going to make a game list of everything I'm going to have in the cabinet- I'll post before the days over.

The game design building of my school has a bunch of arcade games that are all free. I love playing Off-Road and Golden Tee.

Off Topic: Ive only been to one NFL game and it was Jaguars against the Texans. It was sweet, he won the tickets at work and we were 3 rows from the field. Also I was born in Jax.

You have to have the old Simpsons and Teenage Mutent Ninja Turtles on it :) Be wrong not too. Also some other good sideways scrollers, Shinobi (my personal favourite) Sunset Riders, Final Fight and Double Dragon.

Also, although not strickly mame (neogeo) but can easily be added the Fatal Fury series, another great 2d fighter.
