    bubble bobble 1, galaga, ghosts and goblins, original space invaders, 1942, gyrus, hyper olympics - stick to the basics. note N64, dreamcast ans PSX dont work that well on retro pie so I just stuck to the lr2003mame ROMset (which is 4800 games - but I only installed 90 hand picked classics from the 4800)

    After reading this thread I made mine (see pic). I went for a 20 inch 1600 x 1200 re monitor though. Also I used a pair of Logitech z200 speakers which I hacked apart in order to seat the volume dial under the marquee - I even did this in a way that you can plug in headphones underneath the marquee.Some TIPS for someone building this...1. Attach the screen to the wooden surround (bezel) before permanently attaching it to the frame. 2. Attach the control panel last and make sure all controls are in it before attaching as its near impossible to wire up from inside the cabinet. 3. Cut 2 x hand slots in the top above the back door for carrying it. 4. Put small rubber door stops as feet on the base to make it easier to get a hand under the machine for lifting. The carry slots and the machine...

The carry slots and the machine being 10-15mm off the ground make it much easier to carry. 4. Get a bezel vinyl as well as the other surface vinyls as its definitely worth the extra $20. Paul at Rockstar Print (UK) is the place to go! 5. If you have kids like me - dont load up the machine with lots of ROMs, start with 5-10 classics that are easy to play so the kids get used to the use of the machine without it being too complicated whereby they may get overwhelmed and loose interest. 6. As mentioned earlier... install an easy to use/get to volume dial for the speakers as some ROMs have different volumes. I'd looked around at various kits and designs and settled on this one and I'm glad I did as spending the time ordering all the parts and building it is as much fun as playing it. Thanks to the original poster for taking the time to do the plans and steps. Good luck to anyone who builds this... Im happy to answer any questions if you have any.

    OMG OMG yours is exactly what I thought mine would look like in my head and bam there it is in a picture in the comments complete with the same bubble bobble (my all time favourite arcade game) graphics I wanted to use. Do you mind telling me where you got the graphics from?
