Hi everyone good morning,
Firstly may I say it's wonderful to be a part of the launchbox foruma and I for one am really excited about starting a new adventure into a new level of retro goodness, I'm hoping that I can learn from you guys that really know how things roll in this community.
I have only just signed up and I've decided bigbox is the way to go ref my requirements and where I need to be, only thing is I really don't know where to start, to start things of I'm looking for some good information/advice on what to buy to run up to the latest emulation, GameCube PS2 or what ever the most powerful emulator may be that is within bigbox, so with that in mind could you guys help me on my below starting points.
1. What device is best to use ? I would guess a PC ( but that's why I'm here I am not sure if there is something better )
2. If PC is the answer then what PC would run bigbox and all the emulators including roms smoothly, can you link me to some units that perhaps you use with bigbox or have knowledge on them knowing they will be tiptop for BB.
3. This will absolutely be going in an arcade cabinet, so what would be the arcade cabinet to go for, what do you guys have can you show me some pics of your set ups, do you have some links for decent cabinets in the Uk.I would probably go for the 2 player arcade tankstick because I think it looks smart but also looks a little easier to set up rather than buying buttons, joysticks etc however could progress to buying all these parts so is there a cabinet that takes tankstick but could be made into a do it yourself wires, buttons, joystick etc control area, I guess I'm not quite sure yet how and where I want to go with this , it could be sit down or stand up cabinet, really looking for some pics and set ups from the experience and knowledge of the users in this community.
Your help is massively appreciated I'm positively looking forward to what you guys can advise me on, thank you so much.
