General / MARQUEES do work VERY well!!
« on: August 29, 2018, 09:51:17 AM »
if anyone is interested (seems years ago it was the in thing....) i got marquee on 2nd screen working in mame and attract.

mr.dos website has all the info to get it in mame. but they only work IN GAME and attract shows it in menu. so you then have it on alltimes but when you enter game it does flicker but it does work!! only took me 8 months to figure it out....

and you DONT need any special 3rd party anything. it all works and IS built in to both attract and mame.

just have to make .lay file  for mame but attract uses marquee folder.

General / needed: nonag hiscore mame please!!!!
« on: August 27, 2018, 09:38:50 AM »
it seems all the mames i get end up going i dont know i dontunderstand code :-[

does anyone got a clean mame with nonag and hiscore around .191 that they can shoot my way or point to one?
id really appreciate it  and a big fat THANK YOU in advance

General / maybe some insight: just an observation

(here i go with some useless rambling)

ive noticed alot of program conflicts on here and thought i spew some words for those as new to this as me.

this is in no way to disrespect anyone or to say noone here knows what they aredoing. just some honesty and encouragement.

1st Attract Mode needs NO other front end to work
2ND MAME , GENS  , STELLA , DAPHNE , etc works great out the box (some configuring may be needed but minimal)
3rd Attract Mode just works! lol
4th if you are using multiple f.e's then you are gonna have conflicts.( its like having 2 people argue differant sides of same coin)
5th Attract Mode seems to accept alot of off brand themes and if it doesnt then you can convert it or im more then sure someone on here will gladlly help if they can! (does have a GREAT support system here!!!)

ok i get it alot of people like to tinker. but i know some of this can be pretty overwelming. especialy if your new at this like i am.
but im just putting out there that this frontend needs NO HELP IN WHAT IT DOES. ESPECIALLY on a pi.
this front end does TRULY have so much more potential . it can front end basiclly any program if you set the args. the right way.
any ways ...
sorry just a thought & my spelling sucks.

General / gens not working win7
« on: April 23, 2018, 07:59:44 AM »

Switches I need in the args line? Or is there a better emulator for genesis then gens??

Any help is most appreciated!!

I have the config at default..

General / just wanna say thanks
« on: March 13, 2018, 06:03:20 PM »
most forums have very condescending a$$holes in them but i find this one seem to have good natured people. im sure some of us newbies ask stupid questions and alot are probably very simple to deal with but it seems alot of you guys that have been doing this for a while are more then willing to take the time to help a mofo out and i really appreciate it and i feel i should say thank you!



not trying to be a sappy little bich but feel it should be said so i said it.

wish i could do more but well whatever...

thanks again guys and thanks for building a kick ass and in my honest opinion the best frontend ever!

--- end of line ---

General / looking for a spinner??
« on: January 11, 2018, 03:45:15 PM »
Kensington trackball with scrollring works great for a trackball and spinner and was only 30 bucks. It does kinda jump but with some tweaking I got it so you don't really notice.  Tried it on tron and it did well. I'll update this when I get more info. I just got this today. Arknoid is next after the kiddy's go to bed!!! FINGERS CROSSED!!

Themes / this spinner stuff....

i gotta sayim SO impressed with this frontend. took me some time to figure it out but i finally got it. i just have a question to ask and its not intended to be mean or ill willed but....

i see alot of hyperspin stuff and i also see alot of talent on here.
so my question....
why are you guys WASTING your time on crap already done. OBVIOUSLY alot of you got some SERIOUS talent!!
so whynot do somthing ORIGINAL ??
look imean no harm and i know im gonna get crap for this but hell man
as an artist myself I just cant understand why you would WASTE your time on SOMEONE ELSES GARBAGE!!
again its just a curiosity question and if thats what you like cool nim just thinking with allthe knowing and talent yall have try somthing other then hyperspin.. imho its overdone by other frontend programs and i think yall could come up with somthing much cooler...
i do love this fe and i love the work i see here and love the talent so please dont anyone get unhinged by this.. im just saying and its only an opinion...

i couldnt do half the stuff some of you guys do and i think it all looks badass i just think the hyper thing is over done and would really love to see some origanle stuff!!! just saying...
keep up the great work...
