Just wanted to say hi and to give a big thanks to everyone involved in the site (incl contributors).  Being able to have video snaps to help show gameplay has been a big desire of mine for awhile.

Hey everyone, so brand new to emulating and am currently building my first machine using the RASPBERRY PI3 in Attract Mode. Noticed that I'm not getting snaps and wheels for certain things so thought I'd sign up here and see if I can learn something new. Any ideas or advice is greatly appreciated. GAME ON!

Hello people,

I am from Panama.  Just got started looking into building an arcade cabinet, so I am gathering the pieces.  I am planning on using Hyperspin as the front-end with MAME and Nintendo emulators.

Cheers!

Hi all.  Found this site a while ago and couldnt find a front end I liked, well I found one and came right back here to became a lifetime member.  This is going to complete the arcade that I have been setting up and make it more arcade and less computer. I am open to any and all feedback/suggestions/links to helpful videos/articles that anyone wants to share.  Game on everyone, drop them quarters lol

I am the infamous NLS (or NULUSIOS for some).

I live in Greece (which is a thread by itself), I am registered here since 2013 I think, but I was not active for my own reasons (that will keep to myself).

I am in emulation since it pretty much started (in consumer/home computers). I was always fan of the concept, even before the element of "retro" and nostalgia was part of it.

The first emulator I used was a Spectrum emulator (could emulate only the display and BASIC) on... CBM64. I used it to run the way more elaborate BASIC programs that existed in Spectrum. I remember I copied the BASIC code from a magazine, with the a pseudo-3D drawing of a cap (which is a part of a sine wave rotated in 3D space). It worked fine.

Later with the Amiga, I used a few emulators, including CBM64 ones (here the nostalgia part was begining to emerge) and I even tried (and succeeded) to make Amiga, emulate CBM64 and in turn run the Spectrum emulator in it.

You know the drill... Nowadays, we can have dual cascaded virtual machines, so we can actually have our Win10, run a virtual Win7, run a virtual WinXP, run a Linux virtual machine, run UAE on it, run an Amiga C64 emulator on it and in there run that old Spectrum BASIC emulator. :D

Anyway, I have a few terabytes of emulation data/metadata, but I am still not sold to a specific front-end or something to make this non-geek-friendly. I eventually have to do this, as having a kid at 9 y.o and one 14 m.o, I want them to be able to dig in easily and see how things were back then when their dad started with computing.

I started at 9 (which was uncommon 33 years ago), immediately was grabbed by the world of computers and eventually became my profession too.

I don't envy people that never experienced computing where you had to type something in monochrome screen and having REALLY limited resource (and no Internet to search) and this pushed you to become more resourceful and in the end... smarter. At least this is my take.

BTW, I am not quite fond of paying for stuff that is actually available publicly or is sold by someone that doesn't actually OWN the source. Yes people pay for Golden Gate vacation cards, still, this is only because some people are bored to take the photo themselves, print it and write on the back.

Ah, I hope to eventually make my own cabinet (I have it designed) and an elaborate controller (I have it designed too and can be made along or independently of the whole cabinet). I even have a controller board in my closet waiting. No time.

      I've uploaded a new modular RetroFE system to the EmuMovies FTP site, at /Official/Retro FE Media Pack
      While it contains a README.txt as well, a bit of explanation:
      - The RetroFE base.zip file contains the base RetroFE installation, with the latest executable. It's not very different from what you can find in the download section at RetroFE, except that it does not have the (nearly empty) Sega Genesis and Arcade collection.
      - The MAME 0.184 emulator.zip file contains the MAME emulator installation. All the collections currently in the set use MAME as their emulator, and the launchers all point to this installation.
      - The rest of the zip files contain collections, as complete as I have them, with launchers for Linux and Windows. Just unzip them in the RetroFE directory.
      - The emulators directory contains the MAME artwork (bezels), which can you simply drag and drop as a whole into your RetroFE directory. The MAME installation mentioned above will automatically use them.

      Basically, all you need to do is take the base (or use your own), unzip the MAME installation if you want, unzip the collections you want, add them to your Main collection's menu.txt file, add your games, and enjoy. The sets are mostly based on HyperSpin 1.0 XML files, so finding the corresponding games should be easy.
