I'm asking this here because the arcade board is slow: I saw some guy made an arcade machine in his home from scratch and I thought I might want to make an arcade for Persona 4 Arena/ Persona 4 Arena Ultimax (depends on if Ultimax is doable. If it's not, just Arena). What would be the best OS or whatever for making an arcade machine for that game?
I realize it is an arcade game too, but I doubt M.A.M.E. can emulate it considering it is so new. I really don't know for sure though. If M.A.M.E. is capable of playing it, you can use any OS which M.A.M.E. supports. Most people use Windows.
I think the easiest way to do this would just be to use an Xbox 360 or PS3 though.
That's what this guy did: http://www.giantbomb.com/profile/jeanluc/blog/i-made-a-persona-4-arena-arcade-machine/103192/
Yes, Persona 4 Arena IS a PS3/360 game, but it also released on arcades in japan under the name Persona 4: The Ultimate in Mayonaka Arena.
I believe the point they were trying to make is that there isn't a way to run it on a PC. To my knowledge, an arcade release isn't available for emulation. So you would have to build a cabinet around a PS3/360. Either that or you would have to buy the arcade cabinet from..I don't know where. --- 3DS FC: 3952-7065-0089
I've seen the original version listed as working under MAME.
A bit of googling seems to indicate MAME may run on Linux, but how well I don't know. (on the actual site there are only Windows installers) --- "This is a cool way to die!"-Philip J. Fry KCO222OB|1440 Watts|6 Slice|Timer|Crumb Tray|Is a Toaster Oven
I haven't messed with MAME in awhile but I haven't seen to many newer games on there. So might be a while till that one shows up. --- PC game sales= more games then you could ever dream of owning. PSN - ArkonBlade XBL - The Wolf Shadow STEAM - ArkonBlade
