How to Build Home Arcade Machine 6 Easy Steps
So you want to know how to build a home arcade machine? Well you need a few simple things
- old pc with at least windows xp, honestly that is all the horse power you need, remember these games are old and any computer that can handle xp is 1000 times faster than what is was built on. I know there is Windows 10+ out, but let’s be honest, windows hasn’t been worth a crap since xp anyway, so why add additional headaches!
- Software to run old games is called MAME http://mamedev.org/MAME originally stood for Multiple Arcade Machine Emulator.MAME’s purpose is to preserve decades of software history. So as long as you are doing this “save history” it’s leagalish I guess. But you can’t sell systems with games on them, but you can download mame roms or buy DVD’s full of mame roms on ebay and other places.
- Vintage Arcade Cabinet – if you want to get fancy and build on your favorite vintage arcade machine
- Mame Joystick and buttons – Arcade X if you need a mame gun
