This site will follow the creation of my MAME arcade cabinet. I want to give it the classic look of a Mario Bros game from 1983. Check back often for updates on my progress.
How much did this cost to make?
Awesome job on the build.I was wondering how you went about the side-art though. I've got my own Mario to restore, and at this point all I have left is the artwork.Thanks for any advice you can give!
Anonymous,It was about $500 for the cabinet plus the computer/monitor (which I already had). I'll see if I can post my price list so you can get an idea of what it might cost you (there might be some corners you can cut to keep costs down).Dunny0,Thanks for the compliment. I was able to buy some side art off of eBay from a guy that reproduced it on glossy adhesive paper. I don't see any up right now, but keep checking, it may show up. I've seen some arcade sites sell it once in awhile, but it's usually fairly expensive (over $100 for two). The other option is to have it printed at a local printer on glossy paper and use your own adhesive/glue to stick it on. The image file can be found here: http://localarcade.com/arcade_art/r321.search.htmJust make sure it gets printed at a very high quality so it looks sharp. Hope this helps!
It looks great. I'd love a price list also.
Great Work Guys.. Looks Awesome. I hope to set a high score on this bad boy soon!
What is the point in making a reproduction and then putting a computer inside instead of the real pcb???

I really like, but is very expensive to make?
I have been looking everywhere for this machine. What are the chances of there being another available for purchase?
So awesome. I would like to pay you to make one for me.
Can you please send me the control panel art full res! Please I need it to complete my project! I will love you forever!Keithpuetz@gmail.com
Wow, you really did a great job! Enough so to inspire me to order up the parts for mine last night... Do you still have an image file for your control layout art? I found some old files on Arcade Library but they look incomplete... It would be appreciated.Thanks,Pat email@example.com
Hello friend.I live in Brazil and here I can not find any of these cabinets to take measurements.You have to plant the Mario Bros Widebody cabinet to send me?Thank you.
I absolutely love your cabinet. Your cab is EXACTLY what I envisioned my future cab to be when I stumbled across your page. I guess great minds think alike! lol just kidding. Amazing job. Where did you get the dimensions for the cabinet if I may ask? I have been searching all over the web lately and measurements have been different for each person.
