Just wanted to share a couple pics of an arcade cabinet built using the ouya. This is a link to a video of neon shadow being played on it. The vid is from before we finished the control box. There are some other vids on the same channel. http://youtu.be/sRDOYn7WhJk

I just decided last night that I was going to see if it was practical to use the OUYA instead of an XP machine to power the arcade cabinet that I'm going to be building. I see now that it is. It looks great, man. What did you use for the controls and how did you make them respond to the OUYA?

We are currently using 2 xin-mo boards. One per player. The OUYA will recognize them as USB inputs. Just have to create your own custom file for android to load on startup. This took lots of trial and error. We have got it working with the majority of OUYA games with our gamepad. There are a very few that don't though. You can also use OUYA controllers at the same time for up to whatever amount a players the game allows. Our customer! Controls work great with emulators and with the 2 joystick config are awesome on OUYA fps games also. We just received an arduino board we are going to try to use to add more options and get 100% compatibility with all games. Even at this point there is no reason to use an actual controller unless you want to.

Started painting the cabinet. The trim should really set it off once it's installed.

good day.

We do not include any Roms with the cabinet. The OUYA comes the same as it would come out of the box except we add the files necessary for it to work with our controls and setup. It is up to the owner to put whatever games they want on it. It is their cabinet after all. We can sell just the cabinet also and it is easy enough for someone to plug their OUYA in and go. They would just have to copy a few files that would take less than a minute to do.

Thanks!!! The tmolding is suppose to be here today. Hopefully that will be installed in the next few days depending on our work schedule. Once we sell this one I want to build a 4player one for myself. It's way too much fun to play. Using the control box as arcade controls inside on the big screen TV is sweet too.

Don't mind him, he's notorious for trolling. No sane person would think that you are actually including roms as part of the sale.

It seemed like a strange concept at first, but once I thought about it I realized the OUYA probably is the cheapest and best cpu you could build a cabinet with.

Looks pretty awesome. I built an arcade cabinet once, but stupidly did not measure the hallway/door to my room, got pissed, and smashed it to pieces. Looked cool in the garage for a while though.
