Introducing the 10 Hour PC Arcade Project
Secrets Revealed: Build Your Own PC Arcade Machine is the culmination of the very best techniques, products, ideas and contacts that I have
discovered during the last 10 years while building computer arcade machines. From start to finish, my 20+ pages of detailed plans will walk you
through the process of building your dream machine similar to the one pictured below. Joysticks, buttons and trackball are connected to a computer
(I'll show you how) and used to play games that are stored a computer inside the arcade cabinet.

Here's the first tip:
Don't build the arcade box yourself. Get one for free!
Restoring an arcade cabinet is a better option than building your own cabinet for many reasons. The biggest reason is money. You can find used
game cabinets in your city for next to nothing if you know where to look. I do and I'll tell you. The most I have every paid for an used 2 player stand-up
arcade cabinet was $40.
