Rasberry Pi Setup

When building our Mame arcade cabinet, we wanted to crawl before we ran. So, we proceeded in

1. Setup the Raspberry Pi, load ROMs and test with a store bought controller
2. Build a test control panel
3. Build the arcade cabinet
4. Build the final control panel

By doing things this way we were able to ease into the project and build confidence that everything
would work. In this post we’ll focus on step 1 above.


Welcome to Mame Arcade Cabinets

Welcome to Mame Arcade Cabinets. First, why would you want to build your own arcade system.
There are a few good reasons:

1. No more quarters – remember how many you went through as a kid?
2. It’s fun – maybe for the whole family. We did our’s as a father and son project.
3. Impress your friends and family. When people see our system they think we bought it. They are
amazed when they realize we build it!
