Yes, little ol me is working on a MAME Board.
I have a lot of parts coming in right now. So heres what I got:
I have an arcade shell coming in (yes a real stand up one) for free. How? Craigslist.org
A nice 2.5GHz Celeron with 512mb Ram a 80gb Hard Drive. That was sold to me for an extra $100
The owner found out what I was building and threw in a nice 1500 Rom collection for MAME for free.
I’ll also be using a 17” CRT computer monitor as the visual.
All I need now is a nice Joystick setup.. which I would love to get the Arcade X setup, but the HanaHo is as good, and cheaper. Thats another 100 smackers.
It’ll get a paintjob and get a new Marquee put in as well for an extra $30.
But in the end.. I’ll have an MAME Board for under 300 bucks.. and plays almost every Arcade out there including the CPS3 games (ha ha! MvsC2!)
Keep an eye on this thread guys, cause photos are going to be put up sometime soon of the whole project.
