    Need Help With Organzing Menu For Arcade

    Nevermind, dumb question, I got it.. add Category was what I was looking for..
  2. I would like to know how I can organize my menu so it says under Arcade, Mame.. and then I want to have sub menus for mame such as Fighting Games, Beat'em Ups, Side Scrollers, Classics etc.. but also wanted to add under the Arcade Menu, Final Burn Alpha as well as Demul or more specifically Naomi Games. How do I do this I am not used to these new features yet Thanks. Also what if I wanted to have a game that shows in 2 categories for example Street Fighter.. I would want that showing in Fighting Games as well as Classics.. without having to add the rom twice if possible..

    MAME Romsets Dilemma

    yes I figured that might happen but that is why I am going to just painstakingly go through everything even if it takes forever. I know they keep adding games but at least I can get rid of the stuff I would never play. I will probably make a list of all the roms/chds that I would remove so even if I upgrade my romset later I can at least know what I don't want from the previous set. Can I favorite in LaunchBox or is that only in BigBox? I just upgraded from version 7.14 I think it was to version 9.1.. what happened to the menu they made it weird now. I like your typical software menu placement. Anyway to put that the way it was rather than having to click the 3 white lines next to the logo? Minor gripe.. just saying.. Ok also wondering about the CHDs as you mentioned is there some kind of list, current hopefully.. that can tell me what roms go with what CHDs? Like what are it's associated files? I do not want to delete a romset only to find out it had an associated CHD or delete a CHD and not know the name of the associated romset. Thanks @neil9000 yes Mame is quite different than most others but also one of the best. You gotta love it though right?

    MAME Romsets Dilemma

    Thanks @CDBlue That is what I was thinking as well, there are some obscure gems out there though, I am a big fan of beat'em ups, action side scrollers and 1 on 1 fighting games as well as platformers. Discovered lots of gems I never got to actually play at the arcade growing up but awesome games are in there if you have the time to just try one rom after another and see what it is.. just too much other crap though if you ask me. Mahjong for example I don't know how to play and well it's not my type of thing but there is so much other junk stuff I would never play in a million years so I am just afraid this task of going through a full mame romset is going to take a million years! lol..

    MAME Romsets Dilemma

    ok well I have read that either the split set or the non merged set is what we should be using but I am confused as to what I should do. Yes the split set is smaller in size but the problem I am trying to solve is this. I want to be able to go through my mame romsets and be able to remove any games I do not wish to play or have in my collection. So with the split set the problem is that if I don't like a parent romset and delete it then I would have to hunt down all the clones for the parent set which is a pain to say the least. Deleting just clones that I don't like is fine obviously I am just assuming that there are tons of games that I would not be interested in, which brings me back to non merged sets.. so if I use non merged roms instead of split yeah the size is larger ok but then what happens when I want to delete a romset? I assume it would only delete whichever .zip file I choose and keep everything else.. it just seems confusing as far as deleting and pruning the collection. I would go with the split since it takes up less space but I just don't know if that would be best for me in this situation. Like this is just an example but lets say there is a japanese parent game that has a USA clone and I only want the USA version that could not be done with a split set.. so do you guys think I should just rock the non-merged set to make things less confusing? Can anyone make more sense of this?.. and what other situations could arise between these romsets and deleting them one at a time?

    MOD My PS3?

    MOD My PS3?

    I heard a while back about people modding their ps3's by installing new modified operating systems onto them giving them all kinds of new abilities.. My PS3 is just collecting dust and I would like to re-purpose it so I can play mame, nes, snes, sega genesis, ps2 games on it. So first I am am wondering how to backup my current data and restore it when need be.. then of course to install a modified OS giving it more abilities than usual. So for that part I am wondering what is available software wise for this and where do I find/download these from? After I overwrite the default PS3 Operating System can I restore it to default again? If so how do I do this as well? Thanks, this sounds a bit difficult so I could really use some guidance with this. I will probably want to install retro arch to do most of the emulation..

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    nope it's 1000 MHz more than the MSI RX 550 for some reason, just came back from the store, I went with the ASUS RX 550 4GB version. Wish me luck. I'm going to install this thing today, and try to get my Launchbox/BigBox collection all setup. It's going to take some time unfortunately but hey it's worth it to be able to connect this PC to my TV and play all my favorite retro games.

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    I hear you, my other PC I have an ASRock Motherboard and an XFX Radeon HD 7950. Been working just fine..

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    ok thanks for the replies, I think I may go for the ASUS version of the RX 550 since it has 1000 MHz more than the MSI RX 550 in the Effective Memory Clock . That should make a big difference right?

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    yeah gotta be new I hate buying anything used especially when it comes to computer parts. Looks like I will have to spend more than I wanted to but check my last post and tell me what you guys think between those 2 models.. basically have similar specs but since I have an ASUS Motherboard maybe I would be better off just buying the ASUS? How are MSI GPU Cards? Who makes the best GPU cards in the business? Also what is your take on AMD VS Nvidia GPU cards at this time?

    also looking at this: https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814137136 MSI Radeon RX 550 DirectX 12 RX 550 AERO ITX 4G OC 4GB and this https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=14-126-198 ASUS Radeon RX 550 4G GDDR5

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    Well I am looking for a budget graphics card that does not suck. I don't have much to spend, was looking at this AMD one from MSI. Are their GPU cards any good? https://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16814127763&ignorebbr=1 it's the MSI Radeon R7 250 DirectX 12 R7 250 2GD3 OC 2GB 128-Bit DDR3 PCI Express 3.0 I know there are better cards but I don't have much to spend right now, any recommendations? I can not spend over $150 but preferably under that amount. this will be mostly for my emulation pc with the most being PS1/PS2, Gamecube,Wii, PSP and some PC games such as Serious Sam 1 and 2, Max Payne 1,2,3, Mafia 2 etc.. How is this card, would it be good enough for this?

    New Graphics Card And Emulation Concerns

    My graphics cards just crapped out and I am looking to buy a replacement quickly but was wondering about the potential problem of buying a new GPU since many emulators use direct X 11 and some even Direct X 9 along with games as well.. so my question is if I upgrade to a Direct X12 GPU would this make emulation/gaming a nightmare for me or is everything somehow backward compatible with DX12? How does this work?
