Mame space invader cabinet.
« on: January 27, 2015, 13:33:27 PM »
I have finished my space invader cabinet, the install was fairly straight forward, the dismantling of the PC was a trick feat but apart from that I found the whole experience very relaxing :)









more picture on my blog,

but here is a video...

Absolutely fantastic mate. I nearly got one but I really don't have the spare room for a cocktail cab.

I have Galaxian, Mappy, hunchback and the Space invader multi-game rom on it. I wanted to keep it close to original so I did not change the joystick, if I did I would have had to add more buttons, before you know it , it is no longer close to original.

If I get protests about it, I will use the table cloth mod.
