  1. Wow....that is young. RIP...🥺
  2. Im going to try this tomorrow. Awesome. So is there a GUI? I've seen someone on line do a quick setup...and it was weird...like DOS. Then i saw another video where a guy was setting it up and there was a " menu " of sorts. That's why i wasn't sure if this was a RA type deal where you need cores/stand alone emulators...or if it was the emulator. By the way...thanks for all the help!
  3. Well i only use bezels for my arcade stuff....and that runs through MAME.....so that would be ok :). Now as far as the shader goes, most of the emulators have there own basic ones i do believe. I think i should be good with those. Question though...i can use any emulator i want for the system i desire though? Like Znes or Nestopia for the nes? That would be amazing! Do you use this in conjunction with Bigbox? or have you tried...just to see what it does?
  4. Mednafen.....ehh? Ive honesty never heard of it before🤔🤔. Is this similar to Retroarch?? Of course im going to look it up after this....but im wondering from the perspective of someone who uses it. Having an all in one is desirable for sure. Since I'm now prepared to just download all stand alone emulators and try to go about using Big box like that, im willing to look at other options. Any pros and cons of that one??
  5. Interesting... I will try today and see if perhaps? Come to think of it...i believe the dolphin bar is showing up as like 4 mayflash bars instead of the single bar i actually have🤔🤔🤔... I can say the controls were fine before I introduced that to the arcade..but this was also before I decided to get the cronus max as well. 🤔. Of course...when i forgo the cronus, its still doing the same thing so at this point I'll try anything.
  6. I appreciate it...im so at a loss here. I guess i could take the control panel apart and place the buttons where they seem to want to be mapped? Or i can get a separate emulator for every one of my systems😰...i would like to not do that though, lol. And again...i tried this now with the Cronus in line...and without it in line. RA just wants to place things where it wants to. I thought deleting the CFG would fix that...but i swear it's like there are settings saved somewhere that won't go away. I already updated from 1.7.3 to the newest version...that didn't wipe anything away...so
  7. I guess im not sure if that is the case...as far as the usb slots being suspended. I would say no...as every time i start the PC...it seems to be seen under that " configure usb controllers " tab as USB 4. I would prefer it was USB one...but i don't think i can change that in windows(?). If i can and you know how...i'd like to know :). The thing that got me was stand alone emulators see the controller and maps it however i want. It's RA that ( in game only ) will not. In the F1 configuration windows...i can map things how i want. Each button registers in the slot i choos
  8. Hello all. I'm having a new issue with RetroArch. Every sense i installed a new usb 360 control emulator ( CronusMAx plus ), RA will not configure the 1st player controls. The Cronus Max plus has been amazing so far! Im using generic USB emulators for my 4player build...and they play nice with everything. LB sees them, Windows sees them, BB sees them...they are great. The only issue as Windows games will not see the controllers most times using these.... Enter the Cronus Max...and i have a 360 controller now. Windows see it, LB sees it, BB sees it as well. Now any
  9. As of late, when i attempt to exit a game in BB on my Arcade, it will either not exit at all, or it will exit and then freeze on the exit screen ( leaving me on the rom launch screen ( with Play, Favorite, Etc ). I have gone in a few times and made sure that i have controller automation on and two buttons selected to close out of a game. I back out of BB and launch a game...and it works...sometimes. At one point it gave me this error code and im not sure why... I had the issue with my arcade roms not exiting as well and i went into MAME and made sure the exit
  10. So from the the last pics I posted of the build, I decided to scrap that control panel. It was just too narrow and not wide enough in my opinion for 4 players comfortably....and the controls went straight across instead of the angled flanking players. Here is what I did: Here's the wiring... Here is the new look all together: You can see the LED lights I put in the big buttons...these are coin buttons for each player:
  11. Hey buddy. Thanks for the kind words. I am actually done with the cab ( well...ya know...it is and it isn't 😁 ). So you're a Hyperspin guy converted, ehh? Same here. I actually have a 2player build beside my new 4player cab...and that one is a Hyperspin cab. I will say LB is easier by leaps and bounds...but there has definitely been things that i struggled through...and I'm sure i will still be reaching out to the crew on Discord ( Lord Monkus, Neil, Dos, Zombeaver, etc ). I probably owe Monkus 3/4ths of my arcade at this point...he's been amazing. I've been meaning to get back
  12. Hello all, I thought i would post this here instead of bugging the guys on the Discord Chat again with it. My Zero Delay boards i ordered for my 4player build work perfectly in regards to the arcade. They play nice with Windows. They play nice with Windows. I wanted to import some steam games and play them as well since my pc powering this thing is powerful enough to run the new Soul Caliber. Quick back story on why i went with 4 of these is simple, 99% of fighting games on the pc allow for 1 keyboard for one player and one controller for the next. Because im going with a 4pla
  13. Update here...i got it figured out man. Deleted the XML and re-downloaded meta data only...so no other check marks checked for snaps or any kind of media ( with the inclusion of the " use MAME " option on the last screen because this was an arcade import ). Restarted LB and all was well. There is still a few roms that are off...but just a mouse click or two and we're good. Thanks for all the help.
  14. I imported these like 3 weeks ago. There all from this pack: I have a list off line of 4player arcade games...but i don't think i can just click and choose easily since they are scattered throughout. Here is the list i was sent: 2 On 2 Open Ice Challenge (rev 1.21) Alien Storm Alien vs. Predator (US 940520) Arabian Fight Arabian Magic (US) Armored Warriors (US 941024) Atari Football (4 players) Atari Soccer Barricade Battle Circuit (Asia 970319) Battle Toads Blazing Tornado Bomber Man World (World) Brute Force Bucky O'Hare (US version UA) Cadillacs and D
  15. So i went to the exact game you have here...and this is what mine says. So this is what he must mean by the metadata being incorrect. Im not sure how that happens or how to mass change that though. It would be next to impossible to do each individual game....yikes!
