  1. I have been following the Sinden lightgun as closely as a person that missed the kickstarter can. I really want to get a lightgun setup for my arcade cabinets but have been holding off on buying an Aimtrak due to the (hopefully soon) release of the Sinden. Does anyone who backed this project have any progress updates or a possible estimate for the Sinden lightgun? All I know is the backers get theirs first, then the rest of us can be on the waiting list for extra units. But if it is going to be months or more away, it might be in my best interest to get an Aimtrak now, and get the Sinden when its eventually released.
  2. I appreciate the input and corrections. I believe I got the list from Arcade64 or something or other, but if it is not accurate it needs to be corrected.
  3. Thanks. I actually just saw this and am going to give it a shot. Prime uses it so I'm sure it's awesome.
  4. I want the metalzoic pack as I use Rocket Launcher but emumovies is showing each file as a single download. No can do. Anyone know where I can get the whole set of packs?
  5. Same. Love the authentic bezel but the small gameplay area and the side cabinet backgrounds were frustrating for me. Regardless, the time and effort is remarkable and appreciated.
  6. I have my A1UP's modded with a micro ATX mounted onto an mdf board and it fits perfectly. If you want an even simpler option you can get a Dell Optiplex which will also fit in there no problem. Full cabinet? You can put whatever you want in there and make it as quiet as you want using any number of cooling options. I had a Pi before but found its performance unsatisfactory for my needs. I thought of a NUC or Compute Stick but you get in my opinion really weak specs for the dough.
  7. This weekend I went to what used to be the largest arcade in the city. When I was a teen I spent entire weekends there. Wall to wall cabinets of classic and modern games, pinball machines, and a small row of claw machines and prize games. But when I walked into this same arcade a couple days ago I could count on one hand the number of arcade cabinets in the entire building, none of them classics. A couple sit down shooters, a couple sit down driving games, Terminator Salvation, and dozens of prize machines, rigged to the max. Parents that would camp out in the sit downs without playing so they could sit and watch their kids play the adjoining game. Understandable, but when someone politely asks if you're playing and you stare at them for a couple seconds and won't move? That just sucks. It has gotten to the point where my home arcade is more fun than the commercial arcade, and that is probably the reason they are in such decline. Sad.
  8. In case anyone else has this question I found the answers since I first posted. Using XBox360ce will allow your arcade controls to work with Pinball Arcade. Once you set it up it doesn't have to ever be opened or configured again, and doesn't have to run alongside Pinball Arcade. Joystick is the cursor and works flawlessly. The only issue I had was Player 1 and 2 controls cannot work at the same time so if you want flipper side buttons, etc. you would need to use one encoder, make it a 1 player cabinet, and simply spread the buttons across the whole control panel as needed. That's what this guy in the video did. I just use the 1 player side of my MKII cabinet and it works well enough.
  9. I put Pinball Arcade in one of my arcade cabinets and used Xbox360ce to map the controls. Works perfectly and meets all my virtual pinball needs until I get a real table.
  10. Hi everyone, I am looking to add some ambience and decor to my game room but am coming up short. I know I can add some led strings behind my cabinets and tv for some ambient glow but I am looking more for cool signs and decorations I can add that won't take a lot of time to setup. I would be interested to see pics of your rooms to get some ideas as well as where you purchased them. Thanks!
  11. I saw some people on YouTube who turned their cabinets into dedicated virtual pinball cabinets using Pinball Arcade, Future Pinball, Pinball FX, and I have The Pinball Arcade successfully installed and in BigBox. I just can't figure out how the heck to get my cabinet controls to work. The controls section has a controllers and keyboard/mouse tab but when I try to map controllers my cabinet controls don't respond at all. Mouse and keyboard works perfectly and my encoders are properly setup and work with MAME. Does anyone know how to get Pinball Arcade to map to our cabinet joysticks and buttons? I use this Pinball emulator specifically because it has recreations of real tables like Addams Family and Funhouse. Here is one example. Skip to 1:05. If anyone can help I'd be really grateful.
  12. I bought a Rii i25 to play lightgun games on MAME and it's becoming quite problematic. A regular mouse works fine but when I connect the air mouse and load a game it causes serious lag and goes into test mode for a few seconds, back to the rom, back to test mode, back to the rom... laggy and stuttering the whole time. In other words, general emulation problems. I wonder if the air mouse is recognized as an actual lightgun instead of a mouse because for whatever reason my wireless mouse works fine. This Rii i25 has caused all kinds of weird behavior such as Area 51 going into an endless Cojag self diagnostic loop. I am going to experiment but if anyone here uses an air mouse or Wiimote, anything other than an Aimtrak, I would be interested to know your MAME settings or any other advice you may have.
  13. Due to it being a full set I only downloaded the gameplay images so that is probably why they don't show. How exactly would I change the recent gallery image type as you suggested?
  14. The issue was never missing samples. It was Mario's run sounds on Donkey Kong being slightly off from the original.
  15. I am not sure what is meant by rebuild image cache other than clicking on image cache in the sidebar and refreshing the images. I did this and the recent images are still showing the BigBox equivalent of a red X. Wonder what happened?
