I have a Omega Race upright Arcade Game that no longer works (tube burnt out before I got it 10 years ago) and I am looking to see if there are a couple of people who want to do a group project to build it into a Mame Cabinet.

Just reply here or send me a PM if you are, we can see where the interest is.

We'll need to find a replacement color tube or flat panel. I'm OK with a flat panel if we can make it fit. It would be awesome to do a redesign of the cabinet for TC Maker!

Depending on both weather and my back, I will try to get this down to the HF Tue/Wed before the meeting. I also have a copy of the book that was done about this, someplace, I will look for that too.

Most of what I know, is that you need the controls, the display, and a p3 computer with some RAM. And then there is the Rom's for the games, I think I know a guy who may have a dvd with those on it.

Yup, and for a multipurpose console we might need to install additional controls.

Booka, I'm ready to get started with work on the cabinet whenever! Do we have an LCD yet for this? Who was donating a computer?

I have an NEC Mulitsync LCD1700V from a relative's old computer. She might be wiling to sell it.

From what I heard Wednesday, many folks are ready to go to work on it, and John said they had a computer already but I did not talk details.

So lets see who wants to work on this, I will put a sign up on the machine tonight, and this Wednesday we can decide who leads this. ( I am going to do my own later this year, so I was just donating this one in hopes we do a MAME with it)

So if you are interested post here, or sign up at the HF after NSFW starts tonight.
