Although would prefer the screen to be tilted somewhat.

Yeah, gotta do something with the Dell monitor and extra Raspberry Pi that I bought because they were cheap and on HUKD ! I'll put it up on Misc when I finally make it.

screen would have to be tilted but apart from that, freaking awesome. i wish i knew how to set up stuff like that
wicked. whos going to try and whip one up?
I like it. I might have a go at making one. I have been looking for an old arcade cabinet to make a mame machine. But this looks a cheaper alternative. I already have an old LCD monitor spare.
anyone willing to set this up for me,minus the table and screen?

basically just need the pi set up so i can plug and play and clearly im not tech enough to do this sort of stuff.

Looks good. I set up RetroPi and I had to SSH in to add them and it's not something I'd recommend for a novice, but that seems ok!
Ewaxxo and EN1GMA - if you both wanted to have some of that conversation on here, I'm sure it'd be an interesting read. I'd looked into using the actual arcade buttons too but thought what I was trying was enough of a pain in the rear.

The only thing missing is the games. Having the HTML loader looks way easier than The SSh method jay suggests .

I wasn't suggesting it, I was saying that it was horrible and the HTML way is far easier (looking at least - I haven't tried it)

Any preference on the mame rom? If I was doing a desktop project it'd have to be hyperspin, but I can't seem to see any nice looking raspi options
