When you choose your MAME cabinet design, it is important to check if you have the room for it first. MAME cabinets take up a lot of space. Also consider how many players you need. I would always go for at least a two-player setup. Most games support two players.

Also consider the money you will use on making the MAME cabinet. Calculate the cost and add a good 33%. To my experience that's how much more it will be :D

That said... Just get started, it's just so much fun and worth all the effort and dough!




If you decide to make your own MAME cabinet using my drawings, please feel free to make a donation,  as I'm trying to raise enough money to make a new up-right cabinet, that's hard to do as a student.
