  1. Thanks again. Been getting the kids excited as they are playing SNES games, and now are onto getting NEW emulator up, and finally mame.
  2. So I searched "alpha-cade" and only got 3 hits here. Using the SNES 9x stuff and trie to get the joystick from alphacade to work. It interacts but I guess I have to configure the joystick? Any forums suggested to read up on that?
  3. success! got some NES and SNES games to work. Now just trying to use them to play with the alphacade cabinet joysticks.
  4. Im getting that impression. I started backwards, building the alphacade cabinet with the kids. Hope to get some nes and snes roms tonight to start playing, then build from there.
  5. Thank you all again. This does a lot to increase our basic understanding and its much appreciated. . I have my son starting to read up on the Mame tutorial for noobs and Emulation links above. MUCHO appreciated!
  6. Thank you for the replies so far. The Netflix analogy makes sense. So in essence, since he wants to play old games like donkey Kong from the 80s I’ll have them figure out retro ark first and then use launch box as the organizer. Thank you for the replies so far.

Lord, I will take a look at your link and read up on that this evening as well. I guess that’s one way for me to spend my birthday evening. Ha ha Deeply appreciate it.
  7. Please bear with me. My middle schooler and I are working on a father son project. Having seen our friends arcade with over 3000 arcade games from my youth, we went online and bought a miniarcade. But we know nothing about emulators and such. So we have all the hardware now, we downloaded Launchbox & I am having him install it. But not sure what the next step is, Now just trying to figure out conceptually what to do. How do we now go about getting all those games? I understand LB is a "frontend" but then, so is retroarch? We are just trying to get a basic idea of concepts and from what we gather so far, we cant unsderstand yet what a front end is and how it helps us play games. In the meantime, I'm looking through the various videos but they seem still a bit ahead of me in terms of whats what. I appreciate any feedback and guidance. TIA
