  1. It amuses me to use my own tutorial two years after I created it.
  2. I have the 32" full size version of this. It is an awesome cabinet kit, especially for the price and free shipping.
  3. Wow, that is awesome. Well done.
  4. Hi, I have a USB trackball, spinner and analog stick on my control panel and periodically the trackball or other device will stop working from what I assume is the device id's changing after so many reboots. This happens with Retroarch too. I go into input settings, everything works great and one day I fire up a console like SNES or SMS and the controls stop working. Would anyone be able to point me in the direction of a tutorial to solve this specific issue? There are so many MAME and Retroarch issues and I want to narrow my focus.
  5. Selected "all controllers" and it allows mapping across multiple encoders. Issue resolved.
  6. I have a 22 button control panel with 4 admin buttons using two zero delay for Player 1 and Player 2. Because the zero delays have 12 inputs each, I had to split the admin buttons between the two. When remapping the controls, Bigbox only recognizes buttons wired to the Player 1 encoder. Is there any way to be able to map buttons wired to the Player 2 encoder as well? I understand at some point getting an I-Pac 2 that supports more inputs with only one encoder might be in my future, but if I can avoid it that would be ideal. I have this problem in other areas as well, like when I wanted to use
  7. At least from 0.216 but I'm not sure. All I know is my A1Up 12-in-1 which is around 0.139 had the correct sound. The only bummer is the newer versions are all no nag compiled here in the 3rd party section of the forum so I'd lose that if I rolled back. Hopefully it is a sound sound setting I can tweak; that would be ideal. Thank you for the advice.
  8. Current versions of MAME for whatever reason have the fire sound in Centipede at a slightly higher pitch than the original cabinet and as a purist this is driving me nuts. Older versions of MAME did not have this issue so I wanted to know if anyone has used two different versions of MAME to run certain games that may have run better in an older version? I would think this would work in Launchbox if we could point a specific rom to a seperate exe, and if MAME allows for different versions to be installed at the same time.
  9. I wanted to know if Launchbox/Big Box has a way to organize games by controller type. I have a trackball/spinner/flightstick cabinet and would like to have only these games appear in my MAME library. I know we can create a playlist and add specific games but I wanted something automatic as I don't know all the different games in these categories. Hyperspin does this so I would think we can too.
  10. I was on the waiting list and ordered mine as soon as I got the notification a couple months ago. It doesn't surprise me to hear A1UP is working out a deal with him although I will do some fact checking on that to confirm.
  11. For Arcade1Up that have limited space I just went to Target and got those $1 rectangle shaped plastic trays in the bathroom accessories section. They are easy to grab and empty, super cheap, and I've never had a coin get away from it.
  12. I disable the game over and now loading screens in my Bigbox UI and map a button to exit Stella, which is the same button I use for MAME UI Cancel. I set Stella to run in fullscreen. When I hit the button my Atari 2600 games exit flawlessly and go back to the game list screen where I can select another game. I also run standalone Stella which is much easier to map than Retroarch.
  13. I have a modified 12-in-1 cabinet and can navigate Bigbox with my trackball, spinner, or joysticks. Go to options, mouse, and enable it. This should allow all mouse devices to navigate the menu. I use buttons on the control panel for selection. The GRS products are all USB mouse connections. Beyond this, you can play with the mapping to achieve your desired navigational greatness.
  14. One of my cabinets is a spinner/trackball cabinet and I want to import the full MAME set using the categories, and then delete all the roms within the categories that don't use the controls on my control panel. But it didn't let me. Anyone know how to filter roms in this manner, or similar?
  15. Sinden e-mailed with a link to order for the after kickstarter batch in September/October and I ordered mine. With shipping it was only $10 more than the Aimtrak I just bought. It was funny because I ordered the Aimtrak and while it was being shipped I got the Sinden email. But I'm cool with it. I have a lightgun for the next 5 months. Much to my surprise the Aimtrak was plug and play. All I needed to do was remap the fire button to the trigger instead of a button on the cabinet. It was a little sensitive but I think that has more to do with me using a mouse for the last several years. The onl
  16. 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
  17. 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.
  18. Thanks. I actually just saw this and am going to give it a shot. Prime uses it so I'm sure it's awesome.
  19. 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?
  20. 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.
  21. 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.
  22. 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
  23. 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
  24. 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.
  25. 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!
