I making my own MAME controller and PC for endless hours of arcade entertainment. For the unknowing, MAME is an arcade emulator that virtually runs every single old and modern arcade game.

I’ll be building the controller to rest on my coffee table. It’s going to be modeled using the button layout and parts you’d find on a Japanese arcade machine.

Here’s are the controller parts I ordered, all genuine Japanese Sanwa Controls (minus the printed Player 1/2 buttons):

Sanwa OBSN-30 Pushbutton

I’ll be using the I-Pac 2 for the control interface.
