Hey! THIS IS AWESOME!!!

I've been DYING to make one of these cabinets with an original game for ages. I know you used a windows 10 PC and Game Maker Studio 2. How on earth did you export the game to run on Mame? and how much did that Windows 10 PC cost? I have the Tested 3d files and a 3d printer myself. Its making the game and getting it running in Mame that I can't figure out. Can you give a step by step on what you exported the game as? I've been trying to figure this out for AGES.

Thanks!

lol you're overthinking it! I didn't make the game run IN mame, it just runs from Windows. Most front ends can launch windows programs or executables, so I just exported the game using Game Maker Studios as a windows executable. Thanks for all the kind words!  :)

Really? let me ask you, what mini PC did you use? I was going to use a raspberry Pi but I've heard .exe files won't run on retropie. I also want to make sure it fits in the plastic casing I have.

Rasperry pi can't run windows 10 (or at least the standard x86 version). So, it can't natively run .exe files, you are correct. You could so some sort of virtual machine but that would run like crap.

I used an actual Windows 10 pc, x86 architecture. Mine specifically was a Zotac 320 or something I think. There are other models you could use though, like the LattePanda might be a good candidate. Just make sure you have enough USB ports, is small enough, and pulls current to power what you're doing.

I have written lots more about this build on my website: https://sergiostuff.com/category/coleco-style-fix-it-felix/
