Question: Does the mini work like Pro when it comes to modding it with CoinopsX cause I might bite on it just to have one since I missed the $99 Pro and been debating on getting one of the Pandora setups from China?


I believe it’s the same with coinops. I’d get this over a Pandora’s box anyway- a MUCH BETTER interface n you can remove the games you don’t like.

Walmart has the Legends Mini on sale for $89. Not as great a deal as the Pro at the recent $99 mark but stiill a pretty good deal and apparently a good option for modding A1ups to a multicade cabinet.


I’d rather have this if I didn’t already buy that $99 gamers pro. Drop this into an Arcade1up cab with a little work and done! Wish it had a trackball but still pretty solid.

Y'all should have grabbed the Pac-Man stool for $40 at HSN.


That’s what I did the first time they had a sale.

afaik, all xbox one games, including xbox one x, series XIS, all use xbox cloud saves. when i moved from xbox one OG VCR to xbox one s, all my saves were there. went to xbox one x, all the saves there. series X, all saves. so regardless of where you play / login with your xbox account; your saves are synched and accessible. I have only used saves going up the chain as systems upgraded; but i'm sure if i would login to the older machine; all the saves would be synched and accessible. it is a smooth system.


It’s been super smooth for me going from pc to Xbox and back in games like Forza. Would be awesome if it’s like that on all games. I’ve been playing pga tour a lot lately and it would be sweet to play on the projector in the basement once in awhile.

I see both sides of the AtGames usb stick argument. I really like the argument that it doesn’t matter if you do it yourself or buy a stick, either way you’re technically still doing something illegal. But of course everyone owns the actual arcades, right? 😂

Personally I’d download and install myself. It was super simple. However, I know 2 people that awesome bought the gamer pro on sale and both bought usb sticks and I 100% understand why and don’t blame them:

-they had to buy a new usb stick anyway
-not everyone has super fast internet
-not everyone has the time
-not everyone is good at computers

I had to walk another person through the process as they messed up twice on their own. And that person had decent internet and a crappy pc- so it took them awhile to download and took an hour plus to copy over to usb.

Finally installed coinopsX on my legends gamer pro. Man this thing is a slick deal at that price. Honestly I wish I didn’t already built a couple cabinets already as this can completely replace them.

I have a raspberry pi 3 cabinet that I don’t have the space for anymore, that can get sold now. I have an arcade1up golden tee that I really like, really don’t need that anymore. I have a pc launchbox cabinet build that has games that this thing can’t run, like nfl blitz and Naomi games and such, and some run much. Ether on the pc build, but I’d sell that cabinet and live without those games (but I friggin love they cabinet and put a lot of work into it, she’s not going anywhere).

I got one of the “saucey” builds and built my own flash drive.
Total time was maybe 80 minutes, and the bulk of that was games compiling.

Very fun to play around with. Worst part will be storing the thing.


Took me longer to copy to usb and compile than it took me to download the arcade, daphne, snes, and nes sauces haha.

I just want to test it out. Then I’ll go back and remove a lot of them. I hate having thousands of games. I’ll wind up with a couple hundred that will actually get played.

Those of you who have put Coinopsx on At Legends Pro - does this same method work here even though this is for legends?

https://youtu.be/oaFiWJGXIFE

Also, does anyone know how it compares power/performance wise to a RetroPie on a PI3?


Similar. In my basement I have a pc mame cabinet running launchbox, a rasp pi 3b+ mame cabinet, an Arcade1up golden tee, a real pga tour championship 3 arcade cabinet, and now this.

Performance is put it at the pi 3b+ or maybe a little faster. Some rgsmes run better on each. Example- word class bowling is unplayable on my pi build but is very playable on the gamers pro. NBA jam runs fine on both.

The trackball on the arcsde1up is much better than the one on the gamers pro but strangely enough I played a better round of golden tee 2k on the gamers pro than I did on the Arcade1up. I’m sure there’s some trackball settings at play there. Both trackballs suck compared to the real pga tour cabinet though.

is that $100 price for the At Legends Pro at walmart like a normal price and it's in stock a lot? Or was this a one off the other day?

Even though I have a real MAME cabinet, I think for $100 I'd get one just to have one that could hook up anywhere.


One off. Looks like it lasted a day or 2 and sold out. I wonder if it’s a price drop to clear out inventory as it still shows $99 but is sold out.

I also have 2 mame cabs. And some other cabs. I bought this because for $99 why not. I like it so far.

I don’t care for the games that came preinstalled. $99 and I can very easily add whatever I want to it though? Yes please.

I'm 48 yrs. old. I'm at that point where the less notifications I get, the better. I turned on twitter notifications back when I was trying to get a PS5. I don't know what made me happier...actually getting the PS5 or turning off those twitter notifications.

I've also gotten all of my A1U deals as slow burn Walmart clearance. I'm usually not lucky enough to get the glitch deals, just the runner-up prize of a cancellation email!

Thanks for the info though.


You only have me by a few years. I also had the Twitter notifications for the ps5 and then turned all that off. Never used Twitter before that and won’t use it anymore. I hardly ever touch the ps5 but I’m happy I have it and more happy those notifications are off haha.

I probably get 5 or so slickdeals notifications a day, if that. Really nice to have for when my ryobi or greenworks tools go on sale. Otherwise I generally hate notifications and have almost all of them turned off on my phone.

Here’s my current mess of an incomplete barcade. Awaiting some parts to finish the virtual pinball and a few other things. PGA going where the barrel is and I’m hooking it up to 2 TVs. Gonna have to redo that wall again.

My Walmart pS5 order (12/15 or 12/14, I forget) arrived today. That ones going to my cousin for her kid for Christmas. The one I ordered from Amazon for myself yesterday is supposed to arrive Monday- let’s hope that one doesn’t get canceled.

Was up at Amazon but the bots snapped them all up, wish Amazon would have a queue system.


Not all the bots. I finally snagged one. Mashed the F out of “move to cart” and then “checkout” until it went through. Took a couple minutes.

Unless it gets canceled, I finally have one for myself. I had MY Walmart order get canceled, but another Walmart order I made through my wife’s email went through. That arrives tomorrow and is going to my cousin for her kid for Christmas. Had 2 kohl’s orders get canceled but that was a win win right there.

It is completely random for the queue. My wife opened 3 windows before telling me to. So she had 3 windows open to be in the queue to see how long it would take for each one and I also had 3 windows open. All of us showed over an hour wait when it first started but mine counted down faster. By the time I was allowed in, she still had like 40 minutes wait time. I bought 1 and then closed out, eventually she got the notice that they were sold out which is fine because I got one and we just wanted to see how quickly that one would count down. It is a frustrating system but one that seems necessary to keep bots and resellers out.


I think it’s a reasonable system- I’ve been smarting almost every time they’ve had them on ps direct and every single time, except for one, I never had less than an hour. Once I got to 0 and it said entering the store or whatever only to reset itself.

Mine's gonna be here two days early. Sony Direct is definitely the way to go if you can. 👍


I’ve tried for Sony direct literally every time they’ve had one- and I’ve always been on the hour plus wait. I got through ONCE and then it just put me at the of the line again.
