    I bought an actual cabinet with the intent of putting a PC with MAME into it, and wiring up the micro-switched joysticks and buttons to a keyboard etc.

    This was about 6 years ago, the machine is in pieces now awaiting me re-starting the project :)

    The unit itself ( a 2-player NeoGeo unit, with “select game” button ) only cost me about 50 quid, and it had all the authentic ciggie burns etc on it.

    it’s worth contacting your local amusement / arcade company, and asking them who supplies the units to them. It isn’t worth them fixing an old machine, and you will want a broken one anyways as you’ll have to break it anyways for putting in a PC with MAME.

    This looks fab..

    if I buy one I’d need someone else to sort it out though..

    enjoy your new best friend Max

    Not quite an arcade unit at home, but close, cheaper, and a little bit smaller :)

    I have a Virtua Fighter arcade cabinet in my mothers Kitchen, imported it from the UK…from arcadewarehouse.

    Boy, did I waste money back in the old days.
