      Hey retro gamers, a place to only discuss retro stuff from arcades, to old consoles and more.  Currently trying to build a arcade machine using Rasberry Pi, they are so cheap and powerful, great for mame and emulators

                  Hopefully in the next coming weekend, I will be creating a step by step blog about creating your very own arcade machine. I will be trying to retro fit an old wine barrel into a donkey kong machine, think it would be fun ;D

                    You should build one……… then give it to me for be so awesome *nods*

                    My mate has one of those flat top cocktail arcade setups and we spend hours playing it. Its funny how hard some of the games are, I am useless at most of them. But its good to see his kids and my kids interested in them.

                      Little bit off topic from building a retro machine, but we went bowling on the weekend and they had this nifty little arcade at the alley

                      I played this amazing two player Jurassic Park game, had these big mounted guns with vibration, and was a seated game.

                      Part of me really wants to track it down, and buy it, but it’s such a huge unit.

                        I love bowling alleys. They are one of the last places that you can still find a little arcade set up.
                        When I win lotto I will have my own arcade room. tis the dream anyway

                          When I worked in IT, I got called to someone’s house to have a look at their “smart power” / wiring things and network.

                          They had a 2 lane bowling alley in the basement. Pretty surreal

                                  Side note, found an old CRT tv which fits perfectly into my wine barrel for my machine. I thin it will def look better than an LCD?  Thoughts on that? Just have to build a good frame on the inside to hold the weight of the TV.

                                  Also during hard rubbish last year, found on the side of a road a NEW CRT Tv still in original box wrapped and all. Like I know LCD looks better but that CRT feel, only down side is power lol

                                    It will definitely look better, yes. With older games on LCD televisions you need to be a fair distance away from the screen for it to look *decent*. LCD televisions just aren’t made to output that sort of imagery. A good-quality CRT would service you far more.

                                      And the weight! All of a sudden, your wine barrel just became a fixed piece of furniture.

                                      I think this idea is great BTW, Donkey Kong Barrel.
