5 STARS!!! Great Kit. Even for beginners. My 9 year old son and I were able to build it from the kit in less than a week spending only 2 hours per day. (I am a complete klutz and generally not handy!!). The final product came out amazing – looks as good as a professionally made one but knowing that you put it together yourself means so much more. It’s a great weekend or summer project to do with your kids. I would highly recommend to anyone who enjoys playing classic video games from the 70s, 80s, 90s!”e.

Super easy to assemble. Really well designed and thought out kit. Excellent instructions available online videos. Plug and play. Ryan is great to deal with.

This was a terrific product. The build I ordered with Wreck-It Ralph graphics turned out great. I had never tried a project like this before but the tutorials and videos helped me put the kit together perfectly. GameRoomSolutions was very helpful with my questions during the build. My family is impressed first, by such a cool arcade system and second, that I was able to put the kit together to come out so well.

    I wanted to thank you for all your help and a very nice console for MAME. It went together fairly painlessly. I had to go to Ace Hardware to get an extra screw for one of the joysticks as the kit was short one. I didn’t know you could buy just 1 screw, but you can. My build is a bit different, as I wanted something highly portable and yet able to run any emulator under the sun, including the various Nintendo emulators. I’m an retired IT guy so working with Windows 10 isn’t a big deal. I’ve enclosed a photo so you can see what I’m talking about. The software runs on that white 10” cube you see sitting on a chair. It has an Intel i3 3.7 Ghz processor, an ASUS mini-ITX form factor motherboard, a 250 Gigs Samsung solid state drive, a very small wireless keyboard with built in touchpad, and 16 Gigs of Corsair RAM. It starts up ready to go in about 5 seconds. I use the built in video card as the system has an HDMI port, a DVI port, as well as a standard VGA port. I have a 25’ HDMI cable that attaches to the DVI port on the PC, as this makes attaching it to a TV a piece of cake. For the moment I’ve a small boom box for sound but ultimately it will be replaced most likely by some sort of Bluetooth speaker. I’ve already taken it to a party where it was a huge hit with both kids and adults alike. It was fun to watch both men and women go at it in fighting games. They beat the crap out of the joysticks while battling each other, but the console didn’t care one bit. The motherboard has room for a two slot video card, so if down the road I need more video horsepower, well I’ve room. I’ve also toyed with the idea of building some sort of cabinet to put it all in and hide things like the pc, but ultimately for now at least I pushed the idea on a back burner as portability is highly useful. Next month it will take a trip to Arizona when I visit my college girl daughter. She wants to play it too! 😊

    A few more things: it runs MAME v183 with the premium edition of Launchbox as the front end. At the moment it has approximately 4200 arcade games loaded and ready to go. The arcade software consumes 107 Gigs of space. To take this beast to a party you simply unplug the console from the PC and put it into the trunk of a car, along with the white pc which weighs almost nothing, then stick all the various cables, keyboard, boom box, and an extension cord into a knapsack, and off you go. It sets up in less than 5 minutes. I can say it looks quite grand on a 60” flat screen TV! Thanks again. Down the road a bit I might just make another one, as I am quite sure that at some point someone in my family is going to want a system like this for themselves. Its fun for adults to relive a bit of their past. I for one spent way too much time in arcades, but heck the experience seems to have been put to good use.

    Thanks again
