Here's how far The youngest son and I have got on the MAME build. Just needs some T-channel for the plywood edge and we are thinking of some underneath blue LED lighting.
We're running Xubuntu on an old Pentium 4 motherboard with 1Gig of RAM and that's an old Dell 17" monitor being driven with a Nvidia 6600.
The best thing is that a wired Xbox controller works just great for the analog control games like Afterburner. #MAME #Cocktail #Arcade
