Arcade Machine

Ok so you can't eat it but you can sure as hell have a lot of fun with it. As some of you are aware I have been working on this for some time and it's finally 'finished'. In reality they are never really finished, I could keep tweaking and adding things for months/years but it now looks and plays like a real arcade machine.
The cabinet is built from scratch and based on the Mortal Kombat series of arcade machines. The PC inside runs a programme called MAME (multiple arcade machine emulator) and a programme called Mamewah which is a frontend. It plays almost all the arcade games that you remember and a lot that you don't: Pacman, Joust, Mortal Kombat, Street Fighter etc and it's endless hours of fun.
If you want to find out more about how to do this yourself check out this website BYOAC. You will find all the info and links etc that you need and answers to any questions you may/will have. If you have any questions you would like to ask me just post a comment or email me (the email address is in the blog title).
Thanks for checking in, more food soon!
