    My version of the Starcade bartop unit.

    Not too bad now that I've all but finished it. Think it looks better without the backlit marquee but might plonk something there in the future. Still needs the top and back fitting. Pair of speakers sit behind the marquee plugged into a Dell 1905 screen which has USB sockets on it so one less plug.

    Made it a 1-player system as can't see that many games I'd like to play with anyone else . And yet I still added the 2-player button. DOH!
    Also waiting for a trackball off ebay to fill the gap on the right so I can hopefully play Marble Madness which is one of my all-time favourites.

    Just search for ROM packs for your desired system (eh snes ROM pack) on your tracker.

    Have a look at retropie, follow the tutorial, then it's just a case of putting the relevant ROMs into the relevant folders.

    Did I ever share my Ikea table arcade machine or was I on my ‘extended’ holiday when I did it?

    I need a new ROM pack for mame, but I really enjoyed the build of it.
    Might do a V2 at some point.

    Couple of pics. Have a host of before/during/after. The whole thing is powered by the monitors built in Hub.

    Would be interested in build details of that if you have them. Looks really nice. I there a sheet of perspex or similar covering the screen for protection etc

    Yeah I can dig out my old notes.

    It was a £5 Ikea table, it cuts easily with a decent Stanley knife.
    Got a template for the button layouts online and used two USB controller boards hooked up to the Pi for buttons etc.

    i had to put the carbon style wrap over to hide a few marks etc and then I covered it all with a sheet of Perspex off eBay with the holes drilled etc.

    The main part is the Dell monitor. A 21” 4:3 monitor that has a built in powered USB hub so no need to have additional power for the Pi etc.
    Made an accessible USB slot to put Roms on. The monitor also has an optional clip on sound bar (over 3.5 jack) that deals with the Audio too.

    A fun build that I learned a lot from and when it comes to V2 it will be much better.

    Again will dig the info out.
