Did you misspend your youth in arcades, shooting aliens and wasting quarters? (Or maybe you’re doing it now?) Why not build your own arcade machine? The brains: a spare computer. The rest? For that, see Project Arcade for complete plans and step-by-step directions.
John St. Clair, host of the Build Your Own Arcade Controls FAQ, covers every step: building your cabinet; integrating spinners, trackballs, joysticks; mounting monitors and speakers; then hooking up the computer and transforming it into an arcade machine. (Including everything you need to know about ROM emulators.)
St. Clair shows how to find parts and kits, troubleshoot the thing, even create “classic” arcade artwork. Whatever your guilty fantasy -- Asteroids, Pac-Man, Tempest, Centipede -- this book will make it come true. Bill Camarda
