First Timer - Garage made from scratch SF 2 theme
« on: December 28, 2018, 01:52:25 pm »
I started in late July and completed last week just before christmas. I didn't do anything out of the ordinary, just here to share.

By now I already swapped the yellow LEDs in the marquee for white dimmable LEDs that look much better.

Thank you firedance.

The PC specs are very modest. It's an old Dell PC I had sitting around from 2012. I think it has a Core i3, 8GB RAM, a low grade GPU. 21" 4:3 monitor that I got
dirt cheap. Running BigBox for the UI, MAME and RetroArch for the emulators.

Very Nice, But I was sort of hoping you had made a Garage from scratch with a SF2 theme :)

The other game logos look out of place but overall I really like it.
If you are helping someone and expecting something in return, you are doing business not kindness.

sounds like a reasonable spec, can easily upgrade if/when needed  ;D
