new attract mode front page topic
« on: July 23, 2015, 10:25:09 AM »
I am torn. I don't want to fill up the forum with help me with "xyz.2.11.2" emulator set up...(that is help with the emulator itself..not setting it up in AM) raygun..would you allow that on this forum? I don't mind doing a write up for setting them up in AM to post here. However I do like discussing "emulator stuff" can we make that a new "topic" instead of posting them in the "general" section? Also I do not mind helping people with setting up the emulator itself (that will be part of my write ups) but I just feel that should be left on the actual emulators forums..yet I understand getting help there sometimes is like pulling teeth or begging :( mameinfo world is scary big and would intimidate a newbie! I even posted a question there and never got an answer..waited 2 months!

what do you guys feel about this?!

also would a "how to set up xyz emulator with attract mode" be welcome do you think?

how many of you "emulator veterans" are willing to help out getting emulators themselves set up for people?

Hey akafox,
I'm fine with having a more general emulation board on the forum if you want...  Is this what you mean?  Are you volunteering to be the moderator  ;D ??

Yes, he is volunteering. LOL! Right fox? I've been thinking about putting together a guide for setting up retroarch with AM, especially for the raspberry PI. As the command line is a lot more complicated when dealing with multiple configs.

Raygun-

I think we need a sub-forum for cabinet DIYers as well. What do you think?

well guess I can. Glad you guys see my point. :) however I don't want to take anything away from any other fourms. I just know the crap involved to get going is all. Emulation is a pain sometimes. Setting people up with attact mode I think some how-tos would be great and I'd like to post them here. Again though I'm not wanting to make it a "one-stop emulation shop" either.

I can post a crazy list of links to all kinds of places like that omega and other places as well. A general help though might be a good starting place. I guess that is a good idea...but if they need specifics for emulator or problems we should point them to that emulator fourm? But if they need basic stuff..well we already do that here...but it's just scattered everywhere :P

I have to agree with him omega..that is an awesome site..and they have been around a while. I know we are the best front-end forum out there but we can't hog everything...can we? :P ;)

EDIT: wow ray..posted 1974 when you made that quote...maybe we have been around longer...

Guys-

I am cool with that. But, my point was to show byoc's highlighting custom AM layouts. I do peruse that site, but don't post on it. klov/vaps is a different story, best arcade site on internet.
