  • Custom built Arcade MAME machine

    I am seriously think about purchasing an all-in-one, never-need-to-buy-another-game-in-my-life, arcade cabinet. I stumbled across Ultra Classic Cabs Australia and have read nothing but great reviews on them. This appeals to me as I want an upright cabinet to play but also featuring all the classic arcade games from my young years and also all DAPNE titles and Sega Model 2 & 3 titles, Naomi, Commodore 64, Atari, Nintendo and even ColecoVision! You can also hook your ps/xbox up to this thing. I'm not very tech savvy nor do I have the time, if I was, to build my own MAME/Raspberry Pi set up.

    https://www.ultracustomcabs.com.au/


    The 2TB game list is immense:

    Not to mention the cabinet itself and custom options:
    https://www.ultracustomcabs.com.au/p...ames-and-pin-1
    https://www.ultracustomcabs.com.au/p...es-and-pinball

    Features 40000+ games and is displayed beautifully on all the different genre wheels.

    And for a modest price of only around $2100+ for a 2 player or $2400+ for a 4 player version the decision is which one do I get - 2 player or 4?? Not to mention which livery pack do I choose!!

    Any thoughts or feedback would be appreciated. Thanks guys.

          Hey guys, they can't be all that bad. Don't focus on the negative. What about all the good reviews they have:

                With the knowledge you're going to need to repair/maintain the software in one of their cabs, you'd be able to get one up and running yourself anyway. Check out Hyperspin and see if you can get it running with a few roms on your pc .. if you can't, then you're soon going to hate your awesome new cab... if you can, then go for it.

                  Buy one and do a full audit on it, what works, what doesn't. I will be interested to see if they have improved their software package.

                  You can't expect every single MAME ROM to work, but you can expect the large majority of them to work with correct controls setup and the like. Anything that's 2 joysticks and 6 or fewer buttons should work flawlessly. All console ROMS should work with correct buttons mapped. They say they don't guarantee that all the ROMS will work, but you should at least have a setup where all the basic stuff works. If you are finding basic console games where controls aren't mapped, buttons don't work and games don't load properly, then the system is poorly setup.

                  Nobody is stopping you from buying it, but be warned that there are a number of people on here who were very unhappy with their purchase and then had zero assistance from the seller to try to rectify issues.

                    What do you mean waiting with the popcorn? Why do you want to ruin this experience for me by being sarcastic and facetious?

                      You asked for feedback. Not all of it is going to be positive. FYI, those "positive" reviews were quickly produced because of the negative experiences posted here and elsewhere. Secondly its VERY common practice to buy reviews.

                      But like others have said, you've asked and gotten answers. Now make your own mind up but I question why ask here at all if you're going to do argue with the responses. Seems like you've already made you mind up

                      They also disabled their Facebook review system due to too many bad reviews

                        But why bag them? I bet you've never done business with them so don't actually know and are probably jealous and cant afford to buy one. Reviews, and opinions are like a***holes - everybody's got one! But that doesn't mean stay away. Just like movie reviews; do you know how many have said how awful a particular movie is only to see it myself and love it? Very subjective.

                          LOL No I haven't done business with them because I know better and have spent some time helping others who were unfortunate enough to purchase the machines. Read the threads I linked for real people who have dealt with them, or not I don't really care, especially with your attitude. You asked for feedback and got it, I'm not sure what else you want

                          So as others have said go nuts and buy it. Your experience may be better than others.
