  1. I can’t for the life of me get the controls for Food Fight working properly with MAME. I have a Recroom Masters arcade stick and just can’t get a working control setup for it. I know the original Food Fight machine used a special stick with multiple movement options. I was hoping to set the controls up similar to Robotron as a quick fix using both joysticks but can’t figure out how. Does anyone have any suggestions or should I just assume without a separate specialty stick that it’s a lost cause with my particular setup? Thanks!

    New cab is up!

    Yes I put Logitech Z313's in it - not so much because I wanted a sub - which I didn't - however the 313's have the little wired control pod thingy for volume level which I DID want. So it sits next to my keyboard in the drawer until I figure out a better / more accessible spot for it. Do you yourself a favor and get some black felt from Michael's or someplace similar ahead of time to lay over the speaker ports up top (on the inside) - otherwise you can see the light shining through the grilles (yes even through the wire mesh ones that I installed). Also - I plan to get a small LED str
  3. Can I have my Xtension controller AND Xbox controllers as well set up on my system? I am finding it unintuitive to play some of the consoles on my system with the arcade controller and I’m thinking a couple of Xbox controllers would be better for those. Will my control stick and a couple Xbox controllers live in harmony on my arcade cabinet or will it be a big pain in the butt? Thank you!

    Thanks. So far I’ve got a Mame/Arcade, Atari 2600, Colecovision, Daphne, Neo-Geo, Sega Genesis and SNES. I might add Vectrex and possibly Turbo Graphics 16 later on. I still have a lot of tweaking to do on it.

    New cab is up!

    So my buddy came over last night and we got my new Recroom Masters 32” cabinet built and we finalized everything earlier today. I have some tweaking to do but for now it’s up and looking great! Super happy with how it turned out. My wife preferred we not put side graphics on it so I just went with a custom marquee. edit: thank you to everyone who helped guide me with all my questions etc. I have a whole bunch more to come!
  6. Is that something different than the importing process that happens when you import roms and you have the various check boxes then the same for EmuMovies for all the different media types? Edit - ok that is different and super cool! Thank you. Question - can you have more than one platform video and have BigBox just randomly run through them? For example - could I have Williams Arcade Classics, Nintendo Arcade Classics etc and just have BB randomly use one when you are scrolling through platforms and hit Arcade?
  7. I found a platform video I like for Mame to run in BigBox however it’s sort of blurry. I was wondering if anyone has a suggestion on where else to find platform videos other than EmuMovies (which is where I got this one) as this blurry version appears to be the only version of it available on their ftp. This one is just a looping video of Galaga, Donkey Kong etc and not the common one that seems to be filled with a bunch of fighting games (which I’m not really interested in). Looking for more of the 80s Classic arcade games.
  8. That would be AWESOME to have. If you work on commission I'd love that for this controller!
  9. Yea it almost seems like it'd be simpler with an xbox controller. Since I have the recroom masters emulator plus with both the spinner with 2 buttons, a trackball in addition to a single 4-way joy with 2 buttons and 2 8-way joys with 6 additional buttons each it may be a bit more involved. I haven't even begun to dive into setting games up with Daphne, SNES, Genesis, NeoGeo, Colecovision and Atari 2600 yet - which really makes me tired. I'll probably just wait until my cabinet is built to mess with all those.
  10. Thank you! I do have an old wireless kb & mouse I repurposed from an old pc at my office.
  11. So my cabinet is supposed to ship this week and I’ve got my pc ready. I have Mame/Arcade, Daphne, Sega Genesis, SNES, Neo-Geo, Colecovision and Atari 2600 working with Big Box and it looks great with all the video preview etc. Spent most of today going through almost 3000 Arcade games and hiding the stuff I don’t want showing up in Big Box and still need to do that with the rest - plus get those specific emulators configured to look their best. That task isn’t nearly as overwhelming as the thoughts of configuring my controller to work with them all is. My question is - is there a simpl

    Zaxxon help

    Ok. Thanks! Should it stay zipped or be unzipped?

    Zaxxon help

    Hmmm. Well considering I have no idea what the sample files are I’m gonna go out on a limb and say “no”. Where might I find them or what would I search for to find them?

    Zaxxon help

    Well not really so much Zaxxon but Mame arcade games in general. Using Zaxxon as an example just because I really like it and I’m kinda bummed that the sound doesn’t work. I have the .218 merged set and overall things work great with a few exceptions - such as Zaxxon. So how does one troubleshoot such an issue or is just a matter of waiting on it to be fixed in a future release? I just checked the .219 version and it’s still not working.
