I lke the chrome around the buttons. I don't see that very often.

I would go with the plexi cause then you can a a varity of bezels to the build. Plus it protect the lcd from getting hit. Where did you get your flat pack btw?

I have an older mame on my xp. Works good. Same one offered in downloads section. Might help, but keep in mind, it is a bit older v.0132, so audit your roms if you use it.

That link is currently dead. I get a domain for sale page. I'm guessing that this is the right one for now:

Although I prefer my Windows 7 solution, I can definitely see the attraction of Hyperspin, although I'd probably want it to come complete with only the paths needing changing, which is probably wishful thinking..!
