Hello Everyone I'm Mason.... First off I would like to thank everyone who is a part of the EmuMovies community for keeping such an amazing site and service up and running and all the Admins who are always hard at work and continue to bring us all new content... hats of you to all, I can only imagine how much work that can be..... with the help of this site and community and a few other helpful forums I am almost done building my 3 arcade cabinets, I would say I'm at 80% done so thank you all you may not realizing it but everyone on here has been such a great help and inspiration that I felt confident enough to take on the task of building my own which ended up turning into 3 cabinets sooooo thank you all so much.... I'm looking forward to being a part of this community for a very longtime.....heres a link to a small video i made of the cabinets in the works------>   http://www.kizoa.com/Video-Editor-Movie-Maker/d57906459k3968122o1l1/custom-build-arcades-

@saitoh00 I just finished building a bartop cabinet a few months back. The frontend I used was retropie and I upgraded the pi2 to a pi3 it's a bit faster and wifi build in which is awesome, wifi was the main feature I loved cause I'm able to upload and delete roms and bios from my PC by just going into my network option. The only issue I really have with the Pi units is the n64 roms and them being laggy even when I overclock my pi3 but aside from that everything else worked flawless. If you need any help setting it up just send me a msg. Goodluck with your project

Attract mode over retropie is awesome it's the nearest thing to having hyperspin frontend look and vibe on a Pi unit.

Hello,

I'm Koffdrop. I don't have any ambitious plans like the rest of you! (Good luck ecb116)

I live in a modest 2-bedroom flat with an awesome cat and understanding, patient wife. I like to tinker with software applications as much as playing games.

The first community I ever participated in was an emulation one. It's been a while. Hold me.

Hello folks,

since many years a love emulations. Currently I try to setup my HTPC with LaunchBox and EmuMovie stuff. Maybe a Arcade and/or pinball cabinet will follow after. I am also active in saving old games and I am owning over 1000 big boxes of PC games.

Hello People,

I got here after setting up my LaunchBox on my HTPC. This is great service and community. I hope I can learn something and peek around to other people setup.

Welcome! You could try digging your hands on a small bartop. It doesn't take so much space and it will scratch that "arcade"  itch

 

P. S. Also a big welcome to TheSpawn and TokMudim

Hello, My name is Jose Miguel, I'm from Chile and my english is not very good :)

I have recently found this website from "LaunchBox"  and I think it is a great project, because every retro gamer has dreamed of something like this.

That's all ;)

Hi,

I'm Simon. I have a newly made cocktail cabinet with flipper buttons, spinner, and trackball. It runs Hyperspin. I'm into all the old school arcade games from the late 70s and early 80s.

I'm a big fan off all things Pinball! Pinball FX2, Visual Pinball, Future Pinball, The Pinball Arcade. I visit play expo in Manchester, UK every year to play all the pinball tables. Will see you there this October!

Also a big Commodore Amiga fan.

Hello Members!

I am P.S. and I’m have been setting up my family’s media to be more organized and centralized for streaming. From Plex to Drobox to Calibre and now I have made it to the video games and wow has emulation advanced in my time away from Mame32 : )

I am in the process of getting Launchbox/SteamSync set up and I am glad to see such an active community for scrapping media.

I really don’t know where to start, but glad to not be alone : )

Regards,

P.S.

Hey P.S.

Fellow Plex and Calibre user here. Plex gets far more of a workout though. What a wonderful application!

I'm also using Launchbox - setting Retroarch as my emulator of choice. It's a beast.

Hello all, I'm Tim. I have been into retro games since they were originally released, and I have been into emulation since about 1996 or so. I am 40, married with 2 kids. I hope to one day have a small arcade in my garage, including a mame cabinet. I collect retro game systems and games, as well as current gen systems. I am hoping to start up a YouTube or Twitch channel focusing on retro gaming. I enjoy spending time showing my kids the classic games I grew up with and we spend a lot of time gaming together.

Hey everyone :D

my Name is Yo and I got excited about this website from the "launchbox" application.

I'm seeing that you guys are really into building arcade cabinets which look really awesome.

I never was in any way part of a forum or website community so I'm totally new to this whole thing.

Hopefully I can be of use in any way to some of you for any help.

Besides I'm from Germany so my English is not that good so I think I can learn some about grammar here.

Endgreetingz 2 everyone :D

Hi All, 

Strange how i've only just signed up because of trying out LaunchBox. But looking around it seems I should have joined a long long time ago... 

Have been emulating a while before using Mala, currently comparing mGalaxy (like it) vs new install of LaunchBox (lets see this baby!). Used RetroArch from the beginning but it's still not the perfect solution, eg. Amiga support is really bad :( . 

Also spend my nights working out my folder structure! I used to have seperate Roms folder, Emus had the bios,images etc. But now I figure its best to keep resources (roms,saves,bios etc) separate from Emu's, in Console folders. And leave Emu's just to them selves.

Currently have evolved to (using N64 as example):

Emulation > Consoles > Nintendo - N64 > Roms / Saves / Screenshots

Emulation > Emulators > Project64 2.3

Emulation > Emulators Frontend > mGalaxy / LaunchBox / RetroArch

 

I'll probably change it all back again once I get round to re-sorting MAME! grrr but :)

Good morning all!

My name's Drew and I've just discovered this amazing site. I built my first arcade cabinet in 1999 when I was a teenager in Australia, using an old PC I had lying around. Back then, things were a lot more primitive! Now, I live in the UK, I own my own house and I've decided it's time to fill the empty space in my room with a mini-arcade machine that I've been designing and building over the last couple of months.

I'm somewhat floored that the Raspberry Pi 3 I'm using to run everything is stupid times faster than my old PC, costs £30 and fits in the palm of my hand. I've been playing around with RetroPie, which has made my life significantly easier, but I'm not a big fan of EmulationStation so I've been looking into alternative front-ends. I've been looking at AttractMode which looks a lot closer to what I was imagining.

Hopefully once it's all done I'll have the nerve to show it off to the world, but until then it's still just a bunch of crude drawings in a notebook and a pile of controls and wires in my spare room.

Nice to meet you all!

      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 xxx.zip file contains the base RetroFE installation for version xxx, 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.yyy emulator.zip file contains the MAME emulator installation for version yyy. 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.
