What you gonna have powering it Andy? There's a current project for Raspberry Pi's to run MAME
The guts of the machine is where the hard work begins. I am powering it with a dual core windows xp machine, and the software is gonna be mame and the frontend software is gonna be hyperspin for ease of use with just the joysticks. I will be running a xbox 360 with 250gb hard drive so i can download games straight into the box in order to play the latest games.
The problem i have with this is getting the joysticks and buttons to recognise it is an xbox controller. I am also gonna put a playstation 2 in there so i can load up the old playstation games.
I was thinking of not using the xbox at all and just putting the lastest titles on the pc.
In the end it should have 8000+ games and internet savvy.
I was thinking of making a cabinet that has a 60 inch tv screen so you can play split screen with four people, how awesome would that be.
thanks for your interest andy
