MAME Machine

The goal for this project is to fabricate an arcade cabinet for a MAME machine. This could be the beginning of a Lowell Makes Arcade. This could definitely be a selling point with new members.

Preliminary Design

  • The aracde machine size would be dictated by the size screen we put into it.
  • There are many tutorials online that go into building cabinets in great detail.


Materials

We will need wood or mdf for the cabinet.
Play Screen
Arcade Buttons
Keyboard Encoder
Small PC to run the software. An old laptop or junk pc should do fine. The software does not require a lot of power. Graphics are something to keep in mind though.

Task List

  • Source materials and initial design.
