My Ultimate Arcade

Unread post by angelkiller117 » 24 Oct 2008, 06:29

I'm working on a media centerish PC I'm going to have running emulators only for the most part. Right now the name I'm giving it is "(The) Ultimate Arcade". I'll post updates as I have them.
Here's a list of what is going to be the PC and yes this is a little bit overkill just to run emulators XD
(Everything in blue I have already received)

Harware
------------------------
AMD Athlon 64 X2 5000+
ASUS M3A78-EM
Radeon HD 4550 512MB
mushkin 2GB DDR2 800
WD 500GB 7200 RPM
ASUS CD/DVD Burner
Compucase 7K09

Controllers
Xbox 360 Arcade Stick
Xbox 360 Wireless controller

I'm going to take one of those USB brackets you get with motherboards and one of these and merge them together, kind of like you would see people do the internal ReadyBoost mods, for an internal Xbox 360 controller receiver.
At some point I'm going to convert some of my retro controllers to USB, but probably not until I get some doubles.

As for the software side, Widows XP, ECC as the front end, and just a few other programs for file transferring and that like. I'll also be doing some basic mods to XP, like the custom boot screen I have at the bottom of this post.

The loading screen looks great... is this your design? Maybe you should airbruch this on your case! The now loading on the Drive-Slots :-)
I´m interested to hear more of your arcade machine. Do you want to use emuControlCenter?

Yap, the main reason I wanted to build an emu pc was because I found emuControlCenter XD

Alright, I'll do that for the rest of the pictures I post.

That would be pretty neat. It would give people an extra "Wow!" when I show it to them : )
