Hi everybody,

I am phoibos from Germany an I just scraped together the coins to do what I wanted to do for a long time... lifetime member :)

I am an old bloke, played pong in 1979, got my first VCS 2600 around 1981, my C 64 in 1983 and after a stint on an Amiga 2000 I chose the pc to be my main platform.

Which of course means I have a lot of old console gems to play now. I use Launchbox & you can find me at their forum under the same name.

Hello Everyone!

I am Phillyman, some of you may know me from the preservation website Retromags.com. Anyhow I am very happy to find this community and I know how hard it can be to run big projects like this and depend on donations to keep up with demand. So with that I am happy to contribute to this site by becoming a Lifetime Supporter. On a personal note I have been into emulation since the days of AOL 4.0 when I used to fire up that bloody hand cursor in Nesticle and launch ROMs the old school way.....man we have come a long way.

Sup,  I am an old fart that just started trying to wrap my head around emulation. Been playing video games since Pong came out.  Started trying to figure out Hyper Spin but gave up on that . Took me half a day to figure out how to copy rpi roms into my Launchbox . 

Thanks for reading expect a lot of questions lol!

Don't worry about that, i'm not as old, but still trying to figure HS out as well... I've been doing stand alone emulation (no front ends) for years, but now i want to set up a cabinet and i got to say it's a lot to digest....

I'm also an old dude and I grew up with Atari 2600 as my first console as a kid.  I spent a lot of time in the arcades with Ms Pacman, Galaga, Centipede and the like.  I got enough info off of YouTube to build my son a Raspberry Pi 3 to play all the Super Nintendo Games that would've come on a SNES Mini, (had I been able to find one) for his birthday!  It was only the most basic setup on Emulation Station, but he was thrilled.  I now have the bug and would like to build a full size arcade cabinet for Christmas, but I don't want to settle for "basic."  I want to build a professional level gaming experience for the whole family.  If all goes well, I would like to start building them for relatives and friends as well...(and maybe morph into a small side business.)  Finding the best starting place is where I am finding trouble.  I like the look and feel of Retro FE or Hyperspin to give the game experience I think I'm looking for at the end, but am unsure the steps to take to get there as far as emulator, etc.  I don't even want 3000 games...maybe 50 at the most, but from many different systems from Various Console Systems, to Various Arcade games.  YouTube has been very helpful, but folks are all over the map with set ups.

Hello, Mostile here from the Mushroom Kingdom. Started trying to make a Hyperspin setup a few years ago, but other things came in between. Nowadays with more options like LaunchBox, it'll probably take much less time to complete a retro setup.

Hi there! I've dabbled in emulation before, but stopped due to a busy school schedule years ago. A coworker of mine and I decided to both get back into emulation, and build a complete arcade cabinet from the ground up.

Hi everyone, Daniel from Norway here. Happy, peaceful guy enjoying life with my wife. Enjoy gaming, football, watching movies, law, learning new stuff and listening to music. Dislike intolerance, injustice and other mean things.

Not sure what there is to know about me, but please don't hesitate to ask if you are wondering about anything ?

Hey Everyone,

Ben from the U.K Here. I've just started a multi-emulator bartop project, and this colossal cache of information has been invaluable to my quest.

Look forward to showing it off once it's complete!

Hi all! As you can see from my user details, not exactly new as a registered user, but completely new as to actually starting to do something...

As my nick hints, my name is Walter and I am from Argentina, way down south in South America.

I have been playing since the Atari 2600 days, and even though I collect and use real hardware (With a small number of exceptions, I have pretty much every computer or console that has a decent game base since the 70's), I also like emulation and use it as well.

Built myself a bartop as practice for a "real" cab, and came out pretty nice.

Hope to find lots of good info and resources to build my ultimate setup that could be used both on a "regular" PC as well as one within a cab.

Regards.

Hey there, new to the site and emulation recently, loving it.  Building out a custom arcade cabinet powered by Attract Mode and includes a slew of consoles and games.  Vidcaps for the screens and such.

 

Thank you all, see ya around.

BTW, anyone have experience using Mac Mini's as emulation systems?  It's an older one with the DVD rom drive, but I figured it would at least play the earlier consoles and maybe Mame?

      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.
