I grew up with Arcade games, the fun, difficulty, time consuming, swearing, tantrums.. Its something unique and i still love em, but more and more of them are getting kicked out due to modern consoles.. But i found that people are starting to make retro cabinets with a raspberry..

Im wondering if anyone in here built one, and wants to share?

Over the years I've built 3 of them, but had to get rid of them when moving from city to city.

Not using Pis though, just leftover computer parts.

They were great fun!

I've been sitting on an arcade table though, that I've kept.

So far, it's gutted and ready to go, but I haven't jumped into it yet.

My only qualm with using a Pi is that you need to use an older version of MAME, and the newer versions are amazing in what they offer graphically.

There is a new version of Pi, quadcore, for 20$
It's called Orange Pi.

Thanks for the link!

Otherwise you do get mini-pc's I could recommend, but they are more in the 200-300$ range.
But then it's i3 or i5 with 4-8GB RAM etc.

So decent machines, prone to overheating though.
