3. Playing Arcade Games on Your Computer > Add Cabinet Art to MAME

Add Cabinet Art to MAME

Gussy up your gameplay with classic arcade artwork.

So you’ve decked out your MAME setup with original arcade game sounds [Hack #28] and even got hooked up with a classic arcade-style controller [Hack #27] . But something’s still telling you that your MAME experience isn’t quite complete. Something’s still missing.

Your peripheral vision is giving you different cues than you remember. You’re not supposed to be looking at the grey sides of your monitor. Or the empty black unused space on the sides of the screen. Or that cheesecake photo calendar from ten years ago. No! You’re supposed to see the arcade cabinet art bordering your screen. And didn’t the original Asteroids Deluxe machine have a cool holographic background, or was that just your imagination?
