Looking for the name of a Street Fighter 2 Knock Off

I've been working on building an arcade cabinet running MAME. There's one game in particular that I'd like to locate. I've searched for it but haven't had any luck. Here's what I remember: It had pretty poorly animated 2D sprite based graphics. It was a particularly blatant rip-off of Street fighter 2. It came out before 1995. One of the characters was a Kabuki man. Some characters had weapons. It was not Samurai Showdown. The final boss would use a combination of special attacks from the other characters.

Office gathering + RPi2 + MAME + 2 controllers = fun?

I need suggestions for Raspberri Pi 2 compatible ( via RetroPi ) MAME games ( available via archive.org ) that would work well for two players. Fighting games. Collaborative games. I don't care. Just need a handful that might be fun for an office of IT workers.

I'm looking to build an upright MAME console from a kit. I have a budget of about $700-900 total, including the screen and PC and any other bits and pieces I'd need. I'd like a dual joystick setup with a trackball. I have no idea what's out there, other than what Google searches show me, and I don't know what the "gotchas" are. What are the best options for doing this, with the budget in mind? What issues should I watch out for?

How risky would it be to charge for playing a MAME arcade cabinet?

I saw (and played) a MAME cabinet in an arcade yesterday. It had about 50 games you could choose out of and it made no secret of it having a PC running an emulator inside. [more inside]

Where have all the internet-multiplayer MAME builds gone?

There used to be a MAME build called Kaillera that allowed online play. According to it's official homepage, it hasn't been updated in 7 years. It seems looney that no one has pursued this kind of idea, but I'll be darned if I can find it. Where have all the internet-multiplayer MAME builds gone?

Playing the Mame Game

OK, I've got MAME installed, and a (pretty much) complete (15Gb) set of ROMs. I've played my old favorites... Galaxian, Galaga, Gauntlet, Sonic, Mario... but now I'm daunted by the thousands of games I have to choose from. So what should I play next? (assume if I don't have the ROM I can get it)

Cheap mame box

My current MAME-dedicated computer is a little too slow to play some of the newer games, so I'm looking for a replacement. Where is the cheapest place to get either a new or used computer of decent power? Also, is processor speed or RAM more important when it comes to MAME performance?
