General / romlists - Sourcing extra fields
« on: January 01, 2016, 01:03:46 PM »
I've spent some time looking around and can't seem to find either a romlist for systems that already have extra fields defined, or where I can even source the info.

I already have Year;Manufacturer;Category as I used Hyperspin Imports, but I'm trying to find 'Players'

Anyone able to point me in the right direction?

Systems im interested in are

MAME, NES, SNES, GB, GBC, GBA, N64, Genesis, GameGear, PS1, PS2, GameCube, Wii.


Adding these lists to my github

Emulators / PCSX2 Ubuntu 14.04 - archive 7z
« on: December 30, 2015, 03:27:16 PM »
So I've got PCSX2 working great standalone, but unfortunately it doesn't have any builtin archive support.

From what I can tell neither does AM.

I figure at this point I'm looking at writing a script in bash to handle everything. I'm thinking something like;

AM points to script as the executable and passes some arguments like rom path, system name, stuff like that.
The script grabs the archive from input arg, extracts it, and launches PCSX2 with required arguments.

I'm putting this out there to see if anyone has already done this as to save me some time.  :)

General / New convert from HyperSpin - Off to a good start!

I've recently gotten fed up with all the nonsense of Hyperspin/rocketlauncher on windows after 2 years of use. I started looking around at different FE's and found a few that look very promising. I've decided to start with AM because it looks very strait forward, lightweight, and well maintained.

My goal is to be successful on linux running kubuntu 14.04 x64. My box is an i5 4690k, 16 GB RAM, and a EVGA GTX 750ti.

I will be using SIXAXIS (non dual-shock) via USB/BT and will be focusing initially on the 8bit generation through PS2/Wii and branching out after that.

I'm a moderate linux user both at work and at home with ubuntu/debian as my flavors of choice as applicable. I'm familiar with development in Python and PHP and make my living as a Network Engineer.

The big attractor here is all the work i do on this main box can be so easily translated to an rPi for some other rooms/TVs in my house.

I've seen and successfully installed the 1.6.0 deb packaged by akafox (Thanks!) after fixing dependencies.

I plan on using retroarch/libretro where able.

Expect questions from me and know that I probably already spent some time searching and trying to figure it out myself :)

Thanks to all the contributors so far, can't wait to have a working box!
