I am wanting to build a mame machine but am having trouble findingIf you are planning on building your own cabinet:
places to download all the roms and also how to wire the whole thing
up. Any help would be greatly appreciated. Please feel free to show
pics of your mame machines.
I just finished my second one. Sorry, I didnt take time to take many pictures.
Just a word(s) of advice:
If you use MDF board, do the cutting outside. It puts off a lot of dust, you might want to wear a cheap paper mask (respirator) over your nose and mouth. (Be extremly careful with the saws)
Measure twice (or three times) and cut once.
Dont primer and paint until you have the cabinet together, or at least dont paint and primer the edges of the pieces, because the paint takes up more room than one would imagine. (Im talking about where the edges of two pieces meet.)
Check back here often, and check the links the other guys posted for you.
As far as the software and wiring, I have found the biggest help from these guys..
Good luck, and have fun...
If you get frustrated (I did more than once or twenty times), just take a break and let it rest for a few hours.
