Archive for the ‘Arcade’ Category

This is the seventh part of a multi-part series I’m going to do about assembling an Arcade Cabinet for my house. This series has two disclaimers:

Software Disclaimer 1: There’s all sorts of legal issues around emulating arcade games. This series of posts has nothing to do with that. I do own some original arcade boards, but if you want to emulate arcade games with MAME (Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator), you can search the ‘tubes. What I’m doing here is putting a computer in a pretty box.

Hardware Disclaimer 2: Many folks that build arcade cabinets have a purist view of how these things should be done. They will prefer original Arcade CRT monitors and more expensive, higher quality parts. I am more of a pragmatist. I also have no idea what I’m doing, so I’ve also got ignorance on my side.

Here’s a short HiDef Video shot with my Creative Vado HD showing the Arcade Cabinet:
