My home built MAME Cabinet
« on: September 30, 2012, 18:36:20 PM »
Since we first got involved in emulation on PC's, my brother and I always wanted to build a MAME cabinet. A few years back I got hold of some old warehouse shelving boards and marked out a rough idea of a cabinet. Cut it out and screwed it together. Added a PC and monitor and some buttons and joystick. The result was my Classicade

Love it!  So, how many games do you have on it?

@ TrekMD, I have around 30 arcade games on there, but I'm looking to upgrade it and add some console stuff with a new frontend when I have time to set one up.

@Zapiy, it is an elastic band from something because all my family use it as extra shelving. Even I do, note the Amiga games on top of it.

Thanks for the compliment onthinice

I would love something like that. Once I clear my garage. Maybe, just maybe.
