  1. Hello, all. I've not really used Launchbox much, just some experimentation with it now and then, but I've been impressed enough to decide to use it as a basis for an arcade cabinet project. Two, in fact, but only one is relevant here. It's a bit of an oddball, but I think it's an interesting idea to try. This might actually be a bit much for "noob" help, but as I have limited experience it nonetheless seemed appropriate. But if there's a better subforum for a thread of this nature, PLEASE move the thread to it - I have no desire to clutter up the wrong forum. In any case, the main thing I want to know is what I can expect to get running on Launchbox via my chosen hardware. This is where things get interesting - this project is a mini bartop arcade cabinet that will mostly be self-fabricated, and the hardware was chosen for the reasons of repurposing old hardware. The hardware? Well, it's an old Windows 10 tablet. Yes, a Windows 10 TABLET. Specifically, an Ematic EWT826BK (specs can be found here: https://ematic.us/product/ematic-8-hd-windows-10-tablet-32gb-with-wifi-intel-atom-z3735g-processor-docking-keyboard-ewt826bk/ ) This obviously isn't a top-line computer - it's close to a Raspberry Pi 3 B+ in performance specs(it's major benefit over the Pi is not mentioned on the page; it's CPU can boost itself by 0.5GHz when stressed), but the idea behind this project is that I can easily install/remove it from the cabinet in case I ever need it for something else(it IS my emergency backup tablet). The main question is, like I said before, what can I expect to emulate on this? Is the RAM enough to handle things beyond the Pi or am I limited to about the same level? The great thing about this idea is that I really only need to build a cabinet and come up with an input solution. Bu that brings up the big issue(and the one this may not be the best place to inquire about, but I'm hoping someone can send me in the right direction), which you'll notice if you look over the tablet's specs, is that it has only a single microUSB port for both charging AND connecting peripherals. You cannot maintain full battery power while running a peripheral through the MicroUSB, which could be a bit of an annoyance. But the tablet DOES have Bluetooth which makes me wonder if there exists, or there is a method to build, a Bluetooth arcade stick setup. I have no soldering skills, so any build with need to be a solder-free method, but if it were possible it's be a decent solution. I'm hoping I can make this work somehow. Any and all advice on the idea would be greatly appreciated.
