Smallest possible box I can run MAME 0.147 on?
01/07/13 10:40 PM


I'll admit up front, I tried a Raspberry Pi and I'm somewhat disappointed. I didn't do enough research before buying, I saw that people were running MAME on it, but didn't realize it was AdvanceMAME. Or I should say, I didn't know the difference between AdvMAME & regular MAME. Now I know that AdvMAME is ancient, and doesn't play several of my favorite games.

So, my goal is to have a tiny little box on my entertainment center that can run into my 46" LCD TV (preferably via HDMI), and serve as my arcade box. I plan on having an Xbox wireless receiver plugged into it (and the appropriate xboxdrv stuff set up) so I can use my wireless Xbox 360 controllers.

Obviously, the cheaper the better. I don't want to spend over $200. Any suggestions? Can the FXI Cotton Candy handle MAME, maybe? Is there something better than I'm not aware of?
