Help With Hardware On Arcade Cabinet

Recommended Posts

Hi im new in the forum.

I am contstructing an Arcade Cabinet Machine. My idea is play arcade games from Nes to Naomi. Naomi is the top of game i want to play.

I have a pc gammer to test with gtx970 and 16gb rams and Naomi Runs great but i think this is tooo much in money and hardware for only recreative of this type

My question is what is the best hardwar fot the lowest cost to play Naomi with Full graphics  on the best fps.

RAM? VIDEO? and MICRO?

Sorry for my english i speak spanish and i do my best

Thanks for all for this comunity its look pretty cool

Nes isn't an arcade system. I assume you mean that you want to play systems from the early to mid eighties up until the mid 2000's?

Geforce GTX 570 or AMD equivalent would be the minimum for the later generations.
8Gb of RAM would probably be enough and any cpu with at least a dual core and clocked at 3.5Ghz (overclocking to over 4Ghz at least would be a must)

If you plan to include PS2/Gamecube games than the graphics card would be a bit on the low side but those are the absolute minimal requirements if I were to make such a build myself. I would probably go with a GTX950, not high-end by any means but surely better than the absolute minimum.

FPS isn't really a big deal when emulating, as long as you consistently keep the framerate the same as how it was on the hardware you are fine which is mostly 60FPS

Your English is fine, I've seen way worse and some people don't even try.

      Hello my friends.
      I am a long time Mame user and just recently finished my Verticade home made arcade cabinet.
      Download HyperV which worked immediately, spend a few hours figgering out tweaking it (add Scanlines, spinner, favourites etc.) and it just works fine, like it.
      It has 1000+ games on it and it starts up with my ~120 fave games and is working with just the buttons, very happy.
      So now I am building my Horizontade mame cabinet with my favourite horizontal games.
      So then I downloaded a Hyperspin from punkarcade with 400 top games which looks really nice. The whole menu is working, starts up in full screen and I can start up any game. But when I start up the game I get two things that I don’t like. 
      1. Mame does not startup in full screen mode and has two intentional coloured bezels left and right, how can I fix this? When I start up this mame version directly it starts up in FS without the bezels.
      2. When I use any HSL setting (like scanlines) the games run at 30-40 procent, extremely slow.
      When I start Mame myself directly I can use any visual HSL setting and all games run at 100%.
      How can I fix both these annoyances? Any help is appreciated!
