    1. Have you actually tried to configure 3darcade, trust me, Hyperspin is easy compared to this. its configuration systems is not as easy to do compared to the hyperspin.
    2. I wrote my first article in a few months back on my blogger account. Its about all the ways arcade and older console experiences are becoming affordable. I have had a few surprises put on me to actually look at the Arcade1up cabinets experience, simply for the fact its different and not as large as the real thing. I know its a cop out, but I like the actual experience. compared to simply playing emulated games. This actually may inspire me to to actually put off what games I would want in cabinet form http://thehyperspinreport.blogspot.com/2020/06/what-time-to-be-alive-for-gamer.ht
    3. 3D Arcade, a return Back in the in the early 2003/ 2004 I found a 3D style front-end called 3D Arcade. I found it while surfing through Mameworld during this period. This is before Emumovies and the some of the better front-end existed. This is before Hyperspin, GameEX, Mgalaxy, Launchbox, so this is a long time ago. I have somewhat of a love hate relationship with this front-end because it was a nightmare to setup. The instructions described making gamelists a playlist of playlists ( yeah, it didn't make sense to me either.) But that wasn't why I downloaded it. when setup with all the ar

    5. Finally I return to writing and this one is a doozy. Something has been bothering me for a while now and here I finally lay down my point of view with the state of gaming and retrogaming in general, grab your popcorn because I feel like a rant because I am in one of those moods. Flashback Challenge! First off, I play most of my retrogames on emulation Because Collecting old consoles, carts and CD can be impractical due to space and Practicality of the tech breaking down over time and abuse. While old arcade machines find new life in specialised places which respect their herit

    7. try now the files should be updated

    8. https://thehyperspinreport.blogspot.co.uk/ I have added an update to my blog explaining what is going on with me.
    9. The Return Of A legend I've seen a lot of things within this scene so a little history lesson is in order here before I get to my point of the article. When you think of Nintendo recently, you think of Copyright claims on YouTube videos, half arse production of retrogaming goodness and outstanding first party games. But back in the early 1980's they only had arcades machines and playing cards in Japan and really wanted to expand but after a few setbacks in the 60's trying to make toys. But with the advent of Liquid Crystal Displays (LCD) being used in digital watches and calculators and G

    11. Nice concept. I like the idea with cassette tapes being used as wheelart
    12. seeing this in an earlier version, Its comes leaps and bounds from the what I saw previously
    13. GAMES For 3 years, I wrote a section called random game, where I would normally point out a random game I played from my past or even on emulator in recent years on my old site call the 3rd level. While I had fun with it. It was quite draining to do because I covered a lot of systems with great effect. So while we collect these games and add them to our collective setup's, whether its arcade, computer, console, hell even pinball and various other forms of gaming goodness. I will try to bring it home. Yes, I will hopefully include board games and card games also. but I will cover mainly Vi

    15. Number #4 This weekend was my long weekend and my friends decided to come down from Newcastle and ironically it happened to be on the weekend of this event. This is my third event now and I brought friend to their first. This day proved to be a lot more interesting compared the the previous 2 times I came. This event was the most crowded event I've been too. If you don't believe me just look at my first video. The first part is just a simple introduction to the event and me shilling the event as I always do ( I make no apologies about this). While I introduced the main man Zee (

    17. Today's entry into my rough guide is a relative newcomer in terms of front-ends. So without further adieu, its time to introduce you all to LAUNCHBOX I've been following this project for a year since I got a registered license for this to see everything and my first impressions of this wasn't the best because certain features wasn't in it yet I made a video which I handed to the developer who in turn ACTUALLY listened to me. The issues I had with 5.2 (that was when I first looked at it). First off, there was no tool tips. which is annoying another thing was its MAME naming conve

    19. My Rough Guide To Front-ends I had a big article which covers all the front-ends out but due to a page error it all got wiped. So rather than give up. I will do it in pieces, giving you my opinion. I will cover everything front-end with pros and cons for everything about said front-end. I have used a fair few over the years and so without further adieu, I'm going to re-review my first excursion into proper immersion and I've already written about this in another article. But I may as well cover this in more detail so lets start with First of 3d arca

    22. it shows you how old I am considering MAME is hitting the 20 year mark next year
    23. yes here is the video from the show and trust me if I have more time, I would at least play crazy taxi (which I was terrible at) But again limited time to play anything because real life interferes with everything. There is not much more I can say really other it is entertaining. I really need more time to sort everything but that's never going to happen unless its on a weekday and most of all my wife can sort out the kids. But time I got was interesting and I couldn't wait to just jump in hence why I played crazy taxi. I'll try and do a better one next month. Anyways I will try and workout a
