While the initial runs of these machines had issues the company has been very responsive in sending out replacements parts.

If you were looking to make your own retropi/mame cabinet… I challenge you to find Controls and Cabinet for less than $75. There are a number of Facebook Groups and at least one Sub-Reddit dedicated to helping you you get the most out of your purchase.

Prices as low as $75, seen some $150's out there too in ZIP 27612If you need Technical Support or Service:

these things are really tiny. two adults can't really play next to each other, but for $75 it's worth having it as a topic starter in my office.

Rampage is HIGHLY YMMV many stores are still $300
The other 2 are much more commonly marked down everywhere.

The controls for Asteroids were horrible. Any better for Rampage?

We bought one for Christmas and love it. Two things we had to do. First, buy the riser base to elevate the machine. Second, go in and lubricate the mechanism behind the track balls. We found a YouTube video online. That made a huge difference in the responsiveness.

I have 6x of these machines and no kids. They all play fine. 3x adults for rampage is too cramped, but two for joust is fine. They need to be raised by at least a foot though (or IKEA lack tables) otherwise they are very small and look like a kids toy.

Anyone know how big the box is? I'm wondering if it fits easily in a trunk of a car.

I feel like instead of having a bunch of these it would be easier, better and maybe not much more expensive to get the full size unit with the emulator and multiple games installed. I have seen that at a neighbors house years ago. Is that something you can just buy or you have to do yourself? I was thinking about getting these but I would get bored with just the one or two games.

So how easy is it to convert to a mame box and are you limited to games based on the controls?
