After looking around online, its retardedly expensive in aus. i guess i will be making my own.
does anybody have any experience with this?
The actual cabinet is no worries, i have the materials and tools at work to do that, but i need to know best bits of tech. like what sticks to use and things like that.
Gonna be a big project, but im excited.

If you really wanted to go legit, there's NEO GEO cabinets that can be loaded with more than one ROM so you can use the same cabinet to play more than one game, but my understanding is that the ROMs are exceedingly expensive.

The BenHeck blog might be useful. He usually has step-by-step pics if his DIY gaming machines, and I'm sure there's an arcade cabinet in there somewhere.

Rather than a cabinet, I'd rather make one of the old Frogger coffee tables (maybe not just Frogger, but you get my drift). Practical AND functional... or I'd get a Super Mario pinball machine... that shit is the bomb!
Currently counting my sets and it's increasing! (Around 70?)

Yes, a nice flatscreen. I don't really see the point in keeping it old school when it's not a authentic machine. Gonna start as soon as I get a minute. Will post progress.
