Quoted from Daditude:
I already have the complete cabinet, led screen, and accessories, so I got some hardware.
-Raspberry pi 3b+
-Class 10 64gb sandisk micro sd card
-Arcade Joystick and button kit for Raspberry pi 3
I have heard that arcade punks and retro pie are the way to go. Any suggestions?
I did a conversion last week with an arcade1up SF2 cab. Used the the ETA Prime instructions. Thought the most nerve wracking part would be drilling holes in the control panel, but just understanding the setup properly and finding ROMs and putting them where they should be to get it to work. Also had the wrong amp but found an RCA to 1.5mm jack converter in my 25 year old drawer of "possibly useful extra cables" so it all worked out.
Still can't get MAME to work, though. You'll no doubt watch 8 other vids because you'll encounter problems. Finding the right vids is tricky.
