For our purpose of simple explanation, we will assume that the above description is close enough to distinguish the two types - computer game program (MAME) vs. hard-wired game circuit board (JAMMA).
Clear an old arcade cabinet of all its game hardware or build a new cabinet. Install a computer, monitor, controllers, and wiring harness with various MAME interfaces. Replace the control panel with a larger custom built panel.
Obtain a MAME operating system. Find MAME games online. Download games to the computer MAME software. Set up and tweak the games for playability. Research and order MAME hardware interfaces.
Typically, building a MAME arcade machine is an undertaking for a serious, sophisticated, technically savvy hobbyist with the time, tools, materials, plans, and knowledge to do the project.
Operating the MAME machine requires an additional skill set for executing keyboard commands.
A MAME system does not display proportionally correct a vertical image game (for example, Donkey Kong) on a horizontally mounted monitor, the game image will be too short and too wide.
