finished my batocera set up. my old haswell nuc. astro city mini arcade stick. no consoles, just arcade (final burn neo plus other emulators for naomi, triforce and atomiswave), video thumbnails, and I kept the list to 300 games so I can actually scroll through them without it taking an age. also had to use mame for two games finalburn didn't support (bubble bobble: lost cave and mr driller).

it's not a MiSTer but it'll do

What about those Capcom CPS ? A lot of cool beat'em ups.. I am wanting to start a similar project, but not sure if I want to mix consoles and arcades, not sure how much I want to spend either (lol if I only had $ to spend on this)

Ha, didn't knew final burn was multi platform, thought was SNK oriented lol

And I need to study more before starting my own, not sure about processor or hardware, your joystick choice looks nice tho

nah i dont like snk.

batocera is really simple. much simpler than my old retropie set up.

you just flash it to a usb stick and then plug the usb stick into your device (you might have to go into the bios to change the boot order so usb is 1). that's it. you can even get premade images with roms included if you don't want to set up your own:

then when you unplug the usb stick, the device returns back to its normal state

scrape your game list inside batocera to automatically download videos and art (the arcade scrapers are free)

better to add the roms yourself. you can get them on ("FinalBurn Neo (v.") and cut it down to just the best of the best so you're not scrolling through 10,000 games. also that way you'll have the latest version of batocera os. and remember to download the bios files and put them in the bios folder.
