    Oh foul temptress! PiPlay Console.

    We have an ISP based in the office buildings here in Preston where all of the EduGeek 'real' stuff lives and they have just placed this in the central recreation\cafe area asking if anyone would be intersted in buying one. No prices yet, but it's been left running MAME and a whole raft of emulators whilst quietly calling out to all of the geeks in the ofther offices around here.

    As you can see, apart from the case all it has is a RaspberryPi inside and a cheap monitor - with stand! - secured inside.
    My wife would kill me.

    Ask them where they got them... I got the urge to make a fightstick.

    I wonder what the licensing laws are around running MAME roms you don't own the corresponding boards for in something like this

    Same as the licensing law for running MAME roms you do own the corresponding boards for - unless you extract the contents of the roms yourself and that rom extractions involves no reverse engineering or subverting in built security measures...

    I'd expect it not to come supplied with roms.

    There are plenty of places where you can buy the genuine parts. I built a a full size cabinet a couple of years back but had to dismantle it eventually to get another motorbike in the garage I still think about making a slimline version. I got a lot of info from Build Your Own Arcade Controls Forum - Index .
