This site began with a series of writeups I posted on the Build Your Own Arcade Controls message boards.  These writeups describe ways to interface or modify genuine arcade controls for use in a PC-based home cabinet.  All these writeups are now available here in the PROJECTS section.
Check the LINKS section to find more resources on arcade emulation and cabinet construction.
Pac-Mamea was created to fulfill my vision of what the perfect home arcade machine should be -- attractive, sturdy, and versatile.  To achieve that vision, I have created the worlds first fully self-contained, instantly changeable control system.  I hope you will find the information provided here to be useful in creating your own home arcade projects.
