  • 2-Player Bartop Arcade Machine (Powered by Pi)

    It took one week. I decided for 55 cm width (50 seems to little, and 60 too much). I originally wanted to make it Astro City themed, but since I had already American style arcade parts I decided to base it loosely on Neo Geo cabinet.All of the Mdf is 18 mm. I installed 20" HP lp2065 (fantastic 1600x1200 monitor, highly recommended) and use my MVS Bartop with pc and Gameex frontend, Mame and Retroarch emulators. I set "Crt lottes" shader, to all emulators which produces beatiful crt mask emulation (forget mame HLSL, this shader is a lot better)Next thing I added was smoked plexi for monitor. It really makes image more arcade authentic (when it is combined with Crt Lottes shader it really looks like crt monitor!)I still need to do T-molding and spekar grills (under marquee)...
