Given the hype and scarcity of these, good price.



Sweet. Let me know when time machines go on sale and I'll grab one then. Roll Eyes (Sarcastic)
I'm not sure that there's one place to look - lots of bits of info in different places. EtaPrime on Youtube is a good source for the software side of it. As for the hardware, I can tell you some of the decisions I needed to make:

1) What "computer" are you going to use? JAMMA based all-in-one type boards, Raspberry PI wirh retroarch, PC with retroarch/Mame/Launchbox/Bigbox. The answer will help you with the second question...

2) Do I replace the arcade1up monitor or try to reuse? In my case, Space Invaders is a vertical screen so I was going to replace anyway. But if you want to reuse the stock panel, you need to get a $30-40 interface board to provide a HDMI, DVI , or VGA connection. Considering that you might be able to find a used/off-lease monitor for only a little bit more, and especially if you are going to use a PC or RaspPi, you might want to replace the whole thing. You lose the artwork on the front, but have a lot more screen and the connectors already available. If you buy a used monitor, try to find a 4:3 ratio, and VESA mount if you can. I picked up a Dell 2007FPB - they have their latch and click type mount that I screwed into a piece of wood and set back into the case so I could datach and swing out the monitor if I needed to replace. The arcade1up is only 1/2" MDF so the screws need to be pretty short. If you mount a heavy monitor use L-brackets with several screws to hold the weight.

3) One or two players? Trackball? Spinner? Do I mod the existing deck? I would just buy a new deck with the layout that you want and you can buy sets of led lit buttons, joysticks, and USB interfaces for ~$40 on amazon. I went with a two player, six button/joystick each layout. You'll want to add some extra buttons to the front panel below the deck to control the "computer" inside (escape/exit functions, etc). I also put a USB extender socket next to the buttons in the front so you can connect controllers, keyboards, mice, etc. Again, you lose the art on the deck.

4) Sound - haven't decided myself. If you go with a Jamma type board, you can by a cheap amplifier, speakers and wire and permanently mount. If you use a PC or RaspPi, then you probably have USB power and/or USB audio out to help.

In the end - I'm left mostly with the original arcade1up case and the artwork. So if you were to do what I did, I would only buy if cheap or on clearance. I'm planning on leaving the Golden Tee alone.

I wouldn't do the same type of mods with Countercades. You can buy precut MDF for $80, paint to your liking (I did gloss red on the sides, black/hammered gloss in middle and deck, with some chrome T-molding). You can just buy a little 19 inch monitor and stick the whole thing, stand and all in the case.
Got this model for Christmas and converted it to a Mame Cabinet. Totally worth it.

There's a marvel vs Capcom one coming out so it probably be better to wait for that one now instead.

Did you leave the trackball for those type games? Already have a full size mame cabinet for joystick games but would like to mod one of these for games that require trackball

Or you can just mod the old xmen or street fighter box and play them all via raspberry pie. The Mugen releases are nice too, adds a lot of characters that were not in the original games.Its not hard and cheaper than they will sell the 4 game arcade.

Why dont you just buy another controller cutout for your existing Mame machine that has a spinner and or trackball cutout. They are not that pricey on ebay.The trackball is USB, so you could mount it on your existing setup if you got the room.
