Looks great, though I hate to think of all the setup involved in Groovy Mame. Would something like big box work?
Groovy Arcade is a pre configured linux distribution. Saves almost all "heavy lifting" if you can load the right rom set to match the base MAME version.
Sounds good will look into it for the future.
Project Update: Concrete is down.
Project Update: Was in the city this weekend for a party, swung by a PC store and picked up a 5 port cheap network switch.
Will crimp some cables and test soon, perhaps next weekend?
Been thinking of the monitors for this game and also the 4p PS3 Gundam Extreme VS Full Boost setup.
GSD (System 2x6) runs at 480p, Full Boost runs at 720p.
Most arcade games of that era I'd run on these setups are also actually 720p.
Originally I was going to get 4x 1080p 24" TN Gaming Monitors, pros: cheaper, smaller and easier to transport.
But then I realised that 1440p is a truly magical resolution, we're talking integer scales of both 720p and 480p.
So, 4x 1440p 32" IPS Gaming monitors, pros: magical image. Cons: Double the price, wont be transporting anywhere, takes up heaps of room.
What would you do?
Bit of a mock/temporary layout, set up for a Halo LAN atm. Currently waiting on the CPS2 IO's to use as "superguns" for Gundam. Gear is not final and is just monitors/speakers I have lying around.
It will feel more spacious when I don't have shelving and stuff in the way. I can't wait until I can get a builder to transform this space.
Looks great! I need a shed, but would get fried in the Brissy heatwaves...Multis: CPS-2, CPS-3, F3, ST-V, MVS, M72, Naomi, G-Net
PVMs: 2043MD, 20M2MDA, 20L2MD
Supergun: Sentinel Gold / XRGB-mini
PCBs: VAPS Profile
It's step one, the shed is going to be insulated and a/c installed etc.. Hopefully before summer or I'll have to move everything back to the house.
