Building a arcade machine

Unread postby JdmKitty » Wed Nov 29, 2017 4:26 pm

I want to build an arcade machine with 4 players, I was wondering if there is a way to add more USB ports and if ODROID can support MAME. I can do the research to find answers but I figured I ask a community with experience using this device.

We made 2-players box with GPIO ports based meveric's OGST image. Any USB hub should be fine for connecting 4 USB joystick bridge boards.

Is there any compatibility issues? When I build this arcade machine I want it to last a while before I have to do maintenance.
