    Have you tried playing MacMAME yet? If so, how is the performance and what are your specs?

    Yours truly,

    -Jeremy

    That would be awesome if you could do this. I am most interested in video and sound "choppyness"

    Anyone else?

    Hey IO, any luck?

    No worries, its going to be a while. I couldn't unload my BB gift card , so I am going to buy a new printer instead and have to earn the cash the old fashioned way.

    However, I am still interested in MAME performance on a mini...Somebody's tried it already...

    I havent. I just wanted to compliment you on the politness of your original post. I dont think I have ever seen anything so formal and kind on Macrumors.

    Not that there are rude people on Macrumors. Just that this jumped out to me.

    Have a good day. And in case I dont see you, good afternoon, good evening and goodnight. ;)

    The one thing I would suggest as an improvement to the original post would be a descriptive title: like "Any Mac Mini owners used MacMame yet?"

    Oh don't let the polite facade fool you, I can (and have) been rude on these boards too - sometimes I just can help it especially with stupid people! - see sig - :eek: :(

    Thanks for the compliment though :)

    1942,1943,1944, Ms Pac Man, Bubble Bobble, Donkey Kong, MK (the original), TMNT, Paperboy, Rampage are just a few I love - although there are hundreds of others.

    <shameless plug>
    For anyone wondering, KingMAME v2.0 will begin in a couple weeks and I will once again be documenting it with pics. See pics of KingMAME v1.0 at http://jeremyron.com/gallery/MAME

    What is the total price for a King MAME? IF I were to build myself.

    Total on that one was around $800ish in parts,lumber,tools,fasteners, etc. Mind you I already had the monitor, so I saved money there. If you are wondering where to find things, PM and I can help you find some vendors I used. Of course, my friend Google helped a lot.

    King v2.0 is going to see a few changes. MDF instead of plywood, 21" TV instead of computer monitor, integrated speakers, laminate instead of paint, and of course - powered by a Mac mini.

    Which is why I want to know performance.

    Man, its going to take me a while.
