Long time user... just wondering if I am alone in realizing the potential in old hardware here? Sure new tech is great but I can imagine a lot of 1up machines being powered with A5 and ancient hardware... anyone else?

Nope. I see no reason why someone would do this. A5 is not quite an arcade platform and not all that many outstanding games were created with it.

For an arcade machine I would use cheap modern hardware (less hassle to get) and run an emulator for C64, Amiga, 8/16 Bit consoles (to get real ancient arcade games).

I don't kinow how old you have in mind, but within the week I am planning on creating a YOuTube series on how to program TGE and 3DGS systems for those on who are interested.


Prepare to be assimilated. Resistance is futile

I have been keeping old machines. I had hoped to have time to re-utilize them at some point. They are in storage. I wanted to do Atari style remakes as Art Pieces. For instance, sell them as Interactive Art kind of like SteamPunk style.


Some things are harder said than done, some not!
