Has anyone ever done anything like this before?

I'm planning on taking one of my old PC's and with a buddy basically making an old arcade system. Would run emulators off of it and my buddy is ordering arcade style controllers for it.

I've got a few emulators on my computer and several ROMs of games I own. I use a PS3 controller to play them, but it would be awesome to turn it into an arcade system with the controls and everything.

MAME is great.

One of the student Groups in the CS department maintain one on my campus.

They also have a computerized vending machine right next to it. You can order a soda off the internet and it vends in front of you. Laughing

That would be sweet as well, I know of a couple of guys who created a computer interface that worked with a refrigerator and would dispense drinks, their only problem was mixed drinks with soda of some sort in them, but you could tell the computer the glass size you had, and the ratio you wanted of alcohol and it would dispense it.

I've never built a full on Arcade PC, but I do have all the emulators on my media PC in my living room with a wireless controller.

Yeah, and then she yells back at me, "That's nice. Get me a pourback Ketel One martini or you're not getting any tonight." At which point I'm screwed... or not screwed... something like that.
