Arcade Cabinet - Test Fit & Run with Monitor Mount

These are some shots of the Tux Junior arcade cabinet being built along the way. The plan was to run this on a Raspberry PI but we weren't able to run nearly as many games due to OpenGL compatability issues. A MacMini was used instead. A Raspberry PI will work well if you only want to play old school Mame classics.

Bartop Arcade Cabinet - The parts are coming together

Seen here is a 1/2 scale model of our arcade project, made in black foamcore. Making the model first really helped when it came time to cut the production MDF pieces in the wood shop. Most of the parts are now on hand, minus a slot cutter for routing the T-Molding we have planned for the cabinet edges. Also seen are some of the various parts that will be going into the project. With the newest Raspberry Pi B+, RGB LEDs and an Arduino in store, this project is really shaping up.  For now, we're moving on to the game setup and Linux config portion.

Along with some sweet game gems, this data contains lots of stale project information and entries for commerial packages. Here for reference is a cleaned up extract of the game data in  CSV format
