    MAME Arcade Appreciation Thread

    That’s the main thing. I had to fit the PC in the back of mine but I wired a switch to inside the coin door. The monitor in mine is from a Megatouch arcade game so it is VGA. Obviously that means it runs at 31kHz rather than 15khz like a real arcade.

    Get a proper cab lol Only kidding I bought this for £50 a few months back and bought the monitor for £13 from eBay. Obviously I’ve spent some more on it it since then (it needed a new control panel overlay, new t-moulding and a lot of tlc). Im running Groovymame on this.

    Arcade 1up

    The reviews have been mixed on these. The control panel overlays smudge and fade after a few weeks use. Also the Spinners on the Asteroids/Tempest cabs doesn’t spin freely enough to use.
