MAME cocktail cabinet
2 Posts

Does anyone know of any good pre-built images that work well with MAME in a cocktail cabinet? I have a cabinet I bought, that came with controllers and I installed hyperspin on it but it doesn't work well and I am tired of maintaining it. I would like a pi image that just works. If other systems work too that would be a bonus. I tried to use veripi but I didn't like it very much.


Thanks in advance.

Oh, lol. I was JUST going to mention VertPie. I've been fixing it over the last couple of days as I just discovered it and like you, am doing a vertical cabinet. There really doesn't seem to be anything else, tho.

Here is what I've done:
-Switched things to the emulators in RetroArch that will run them...makes life MUCH easier
-Updated everything. It is now on RetroPie 4.4 and works on the 3b+


If you actually find something else...do let me know. But as far as something that someone took the time to build for this specific purpose, on the Pi VertPie seems to be all there is for now.

Does vertipi support cocktail flipping?

I might be converting a moonbase table i've had for years from a pc with gamelauncher and a fully customised cocktail flipping menu etc to a pi... but not sure if i could achieve the same level of awesome.

would be nice to update it though...

i'm guessing it would work as it's mame.

so if there isn't a fully working version... there will be soon as i will be doing it.

On the off chance that you are utilizing a Raspberry Pi, not the renditions of MAME you most likely need to run. I am almost certain the later forms of MAME can do this, however recall, on the grounds that the Pi has constrained execution, we are principally utilizing MAME that is from 15 years prior. You should check the docs. RetroPie can have various variants introduced. I wager there are at least nine forms of MAME you could run and one of them may do the reflecting you portray. In any case, it likely won't have the entirety of the highlights you need or the exhibition you need. https://creative-arcades.com/c.....et-arcades
