Arcade / Emulation Machine with MaLa Front End

This section provides guides on how to use emulation software to play arcade games.  At the moment, my favorite method is using a Raspberry Pi.

Rasberry Pi Arcade Box

This guide shows you how to configure a Raspberry Pi to output a 240p signal and load arcade emulators.

MaLa Front End

Easy Setup - Manual Setup

These pages contain detailed instructions on how to manually download and configure a MaLa / MAME frontend.

Other MaLa Emulators

This page shows how to configure MESS and Mednafen to emulate other systems on your arcade machine.

Using Real Arcade Hardware

This page describes how to use real arcade hardware with your MaLa front end.


Warning:  I've let the Windows section get terribly outdated.  Sorry about that.  Maybe check out Big Blue as an alternative to MaLa, if my MaLa guide isn't what you're looking for?:


If you’re finished, I invite you to go back to the main page to see all the other retro-gaming awesomeness we have on this site...especially the RGB guide!
