    MAME machine

    Hi all

    I am after a MAME arcade cabinet to play with all the classic original arcade games on it from the 80's and 90's.
    Can anyone help? Thanks.

    Hey mate, what exactly are you after? It's likely best that you specify cabinet style and if you're chasing CRT or LCD etc. There will likely be guys local to you who might have something to sell, but it will be easier if people have a more specific idea of what you're after.

    Do you want a full sized upright cab, lowboy, or cocktail? Are you chasing something more genuine to the 80s and 90s with modern MAME internals, or are you after one of the newly built machines? Also, do you want an original CRT, or don't mind if it has an LCD?

    My advice, steer clear of the retail companies who build the new ones and sell them for $2k+. You can generally get much better value by finding someone who can sell you a genuine cab, with MAME internals via a private sale.

    It does depend on what you are after though.

    Yeah, I'm after a genuine cab with MAME internals, LCD screen. I was even thinking of 2 separate cabinets - 1 for side scrollers (horizontal) and 1 for vertical gameplays. They can have the same MAME software in them; I'll just use each cabinet for the corresponding aspect display.

    Cool, I recommend putting this thread in the trading section under wanted ads. Someone will likely be selling what you're after.
