DIY Galaga Arcade Cabinet #ArduinoMonday

l-7059

via tinkerlog

I played Galaxian for 2 hours straight. As the truck was loaded and we had to leave, they had to peel me of the arcades! The next couple of years I dumped a lot of coins (Deutsche Mark) into arcade machines and I got quite good at Galaga, BombJack and Gauntlet. Then, ages later, I stumbled upon MAME, the Multi Arcade Machine Emulator and had fun digging up the old games. I even built a controller box to be able to play at least with proper joystick and buttons. Then, 4 months ago I decided, that I should have all tools together, that are required to build a complete arcade cabinet. The required skills I would learn by doing, hopefully.
