Hey everyone, I'm an old skool gamer (hitting the 1/2 century this year!), started on grandstand sports box and ZX Speccy then worked my way through, pretty much all the Amigas, all the Play Stations, PSP, multiple PCs, Wii, PiZero & Pi3b.

Already downloaded several images, VMans 400Gb is my fave so far and have it running on the Pi3b on a SkyBox 500Gb HDD via USB.

Next going to have a go at building a cab for old skool MAME (Outrun and Kung-Fu master) to show the kids just how the oldies used to live before android games, steam and VR etc. Planning on using an old wardrobe as my prototype

Also managed get fuse up on a linux box and completed some old speccy games which always eluded me as a kid - SKOOLDAZE and the Wild Bunch (now found out the games 'cheats').

So.... great to be a part of this community and I have so much to learn from you guys!!

I'm also interested in building a VPinball - if I ever get the time 🙂 - can anyone point me in the direction of a good resource for this for hardware and specs - again looking to build from recycled bits (too many old PCs hanging around the place).

Cheers guys - looking forward to many convos with you!

Depends where you are located for pinball hardware, check out some of the advertisers on the site, and of course a great build such as PINBALL EMPORIUM inPinball Builds
