Hi All,

my name is Michiel, i'm from the Netherlands. I got hooked on arcades during my vacations to the US when i was little. I remamber going to the mall and playing TMNT and stuff like that. Awesome.

We don't realy have arcades over here like they do in the states so everybody was very suprised when I started my project. Why on earth do you wanne build that? MAME what? I'm currently finishing off my first MAME cab (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=101687.0)

After finaly taking the step from MALA to Hyperspin last week i decided, what better time to join EmuMovies.

So here i am! let the games begin.

What's up yo? I've been messing around with emu's for a while now, and consider myself a mid level user, since I still have issues trying to configure new emu's and especially front ends. I'm into classic 80's arcades and street fighter games mostly. Bye!

Hi.

My name is Alex. I'm 38 and live in Toronto, Canada. I joined a few weeks ago while I was building my cabinet. It's done now, so I figured i'd do my introduction to the forum.

I'm running the GameEx front-end with the high quality avi's from EmuMovies.

I built my cabinet from scratch using plywood. I wanted to keep the wooden look, so I made sure my joystick mounts were done from the bottom. I sanded, stained and varnished it and I think it turned out really well. I'm a programmer, not a carpenter or woodworker. This was my first attempt at something like this. -I guess all those Sunday afternoons watching "This Old House" and "The New Yankee Workshop" on PBS as a kid finally paid off :)

i'm not sure what format XMB is. are you referring to the playstation 3 cross media bar? these avi files should play on a PS3, but i doubt that's what you meant.

if you can't play the avi files on your PC, then you might be missing the correct video codecs. i would suggest you install VLC : http://www.videolan.org/vlc/

VLC comes with almost every video codec you could need built in, and it's great open source video player.

some mame front-ends (like GameEx) suggest installing FFDShow to allow your PC (or cabinet) to display the video files with the least amount of CPU resources http://sourceforge.net/projects/ffdshow/

if you need to convert the files for some reason, try format factory or the built-in coversions in VLC.

Hi, my name is George. In the 80's I use to fix the classic arcade machines. I love having MAME so I can relive the good old days. I came to EmuMovies hoping to find just a few attract videos for my 3d Arcade. Is that possible or do I need to download a giant file with all the videos?

Hi i would just liek to introduce myself my name is Dave i am 38 years old and live in Cornwall, UK

I have been into gaming since the days of the Atari 2600 and Philips G7000 but my fav all time games machine is the C64

I converted a jamma cab around 5 years ago but had to be sold due to lack of space,after recently watching King of Kong i have that arcade bug again and seeing as most of the local arcades have either closed or moved to mainly fruit machines the best idea was using mame again

Currently using a Scorpion XG controller with my laptop but will build a cab soon to house a pc,monitor and the controller.

Its nice to show my sons what real gaming is :)

Hey folks.. satchman2000 from Scotland here!

Im a big fan of retro gaming, and have about 18 consoles, from 1977 up to 2011!

I have aspirations of building a MAME cab, but my problem is I want too many control schemes to fit on one panel!

anyhoo, just thought I'd say hello.. if you'd like to know anything more, drop me a line!

cheers

Dave

Hey Everyone,

Kevin from Clayton NC here.

I remember getting a 10 dollar roll of quarter and hitting up the Pavillion @ Myrtle Beach every weekend as a kid. Those were good days in my life.

Love the Mame scene. Hopefully will be building a small VP machine this year...using a 19" for back splash, and a 26 inch for the playing field.

I have a 4 player LED Control Panel, and I'm using a 42" Plasma as my monitor with a pretty beefy PC.

I have two small children, so I don't get to play a lot anymore....but I guess that comes with the territory.

Glad to meet everyone

Kevin_lane

      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.
