I want to house either a MAME emulator or my xbox 360 in an existing cabinet that I have yet to buy. I do not want to mod my computer or the 360, I just want them to be housed within the undercarriage of the cabinet.
A Local arcade is selling a bunch of cabinets that they have. They are all in working condition. They are running on an average of $500 each.
Particular games of mention are: Marvel vs Capcom (HS9A), Tekken 3 (Sega Cab), SNK vs Capcom (HS9A), SNK vs Capcom KAOS (HS9A), Supeter STreet Figther 2 turbo, Tekken 2 and Mortal Kombat 3.
I am assuming that I may be able to sell the actual game board on ebay or here and make some of my expenses back from purchasing the cabinet. That said, if my main goal is to play 6 input fighting games (streetfighter, mvc) on the cabinet, which of the aforementioned games should i get? also, which of those game boards has the greatest likelihood of selling well?
I’m sure there is much more to actually gutting this cabinet and putting in my own setup. I have zero experience with these things. I’ve searched a bunch of threads of people’s DIY projects but there aren’t too many that focus directly on the interior workings of these projects.
Have i missed any glaring technical issues that I should focus on before buying one of these cabinets? I"m going to try to take a look at these machines today, so maybe I can put some video up later.
