RetroPie Arcade Cabinet (Cocktail Style)
How to 'bling' up a boring staircase
Solar Power Station
Hi Simon, Thank you for sharing excellent project with clear instructions. I am trying to replicate your project with the exception of LDR (I am planning to skip LDR because I do not need light sensing). I ordered Arduino Micro ATmega32u4 and ws2812 10M/300 LEDs. For practice, I downloaded your sketch and ran with IDE (installed adafruit neopixel to the library). Unfortunately, I am getting error messages with code I copied from here. I am a newbie and your help will be appreciated. My email id is email@example.com. Thank you.
Not much at all really - there would be no need to rotate the screen (in the boot config.txt file) as I assume you would use it in 'normal' landscape mode. With many arcade games there is a 'in game' menu that is accessed by using a keyboard and hiting the "Tab" key after the game has started. In this menu you may find a "Upright or Cocktail" setting which you need to choose the first time you run that game.That's it -can't think of anything more of hand!Simon
Excellent Intractable.I am thinking of making an upright version. What would change with the button and software configurations

Hi TonyI've added a picture which should help. I'm assuming in my answer that you will be using the monitor in the landscape format not portrait as I have with the dell 17". Anyway, the width is about 370mm but don't forget the timbers taper in at 5 degrees. So, both the 24" (definitely) and hopefully the 26" would fit in. The larger monitor would be a very tight fit though. As for the length dimension the hinges take up about 70mm in from one end of the cabinet, if you centralize the monitor then you'd be taking 2 x 70mm from the interior length (which is 660). 660-140=520mm hmm this means that even the smaller monitor is going to be a squeeze, possible best to just make the cabinet sides a bit longer.Another thing to consider is the location of the Raspberry Pi and how close it is the the back of the monitor, although this is easy to overcome by placing the platform a bit lower.All the bestSimon

Hi Simon,Really great instructable. Also, it's great to see someone else who 'tracks' all their costs and web links to all gear, particularly great since it's almost always US-based sites with Home-Depot and other stores that we don't have here in Australia...Anyway, can I ask a favor - are you able to please do a quick measurement for me? I want to know what is the likely LARGEST Monitor that would fit into the available cabinets top dimensions... If you can measure the table top and see what is the 'useable' area on the underside of the lid that won't hit anything once it's all put together (Eg: The wooden framing)- I want to know if this will fit a 24" Monitor (16:10). The dimensions for this aspect are (very close to) 52.0cm (wide) x 32cm (high).- Or even better a 26" Monitor (again at 16:10). The dimensions for this aspect are 56.0cm (wide) x 36cm (high).Once I know then i'll get a monitor to suit and update you once it's done so others can also see how this looks and works.Thanks!Tony - Tony-W
I've update the step to reflect this - the finding and loading of the roms is definately the most challenging to get right!!!!
Try putting the roms in the "Arcade" folder.
When I try to copy files to thumb drive there is no "mame2003" folder any suggestions?
