20 years ago i played Run and Gun @ the Arcade and now decided to built my own Arcade.
After purchasing buttons and stick on http://www.arcadewinkel.nl/ and getting the MDF wood it was started to start with the design
Step 1: The Build
i used an old PC and old monitor for this.
I started the design with cardboard.
When cutting the wood i decided to go for a tabletop arcade
i attached the motherboard and PSW to the base. Drilling holes for the buttons.
Step 2: Playtest
before screwing and glueing all the pieces together i first did some playtest using the MAME emulator
Roms can be found on : https://www.emuparadise.me/
Top games :
- The NewZealand Story
- Run and Gun
- Metal Slug
- Golden Axe
- Pac Man
Step 3: Finishing the Arcade
i connected USB speakers in the top of the arcade and used the LED fans on both sides to cool the motherboard.
I decided to give it a black paintjob and never got round to apply stickers on it.
