  1. I am using an older gaming PC I built 10+ years ago. (Intel Dual Core E7400, 4 GB Ram, 512 MB Radeon 4850). I have been running MAME with it for a while with no issues at all so I have been thinking of a front end and have decided on LB mostly on the advice of ETA Prime and his awesome YouTube channel. I installed LB and imported all 2800+ games with no major issues until I went to run my first game. I received a "Low memory must shutdown" (paraphrasing of course) error message and LB quit. I opened LB up again and it worked fine but only had a few minutes to play with it before heading to

    PC Build Advice

    Hey guys, I am in the process of planning to build a PC to emulate up to and including PS2. What are your opinions/advice on this proposed build? https://au.pcpartpicker.com/list/RFfPZR Thanks

    Hardware questions

    Hi All, I searched around the forums and i didn't come across what i should be aiming for hardware wise in a computer. I am pretty new to the emu community and i am currently about to rebuild a PC for my cabinet. I am unsure as to what to use. I have 3 extra gaming PC's at home not being used much, all 3 have an SSD somewhere between 240-1000gb and at least one HD. The video cards vary from a EVGA 770 to 1070. All have at least 16 gb of ram. Each has a k processor and all are running overclocked. I am leaning towards using the PC with a 770 GTX in it as that case is a huge NZXT
  4. In my Bartop I used a Baytrail Mini PC with 2 GB ram for two years with Launchbox . Work amazing with Nes, Snes, Genesis , Master System , Turbo Grafx , TG CD ROM and MAME . With Mame I could never use HLSL filters, but I found a mask that does not regret the HLSL filters and With retroarch i use Shaders lite and rock! After making a subscription to Emumovies, I have also downloaded the videos . As long as I add video for 3 platforms, my old Baytrail still holds very well, but if I put videos on all platforms, then Ram's lack of feel So I decided to change PC, and I or
  5. Hi all, A Lot of people are now joining our wonderful community. Which is great to see. But they often have questions about Bigbox and what they need to be able to reproduce the things they have seen in the videos. Sometimes the videos look wonderful on youtube, but there personal rig cant perform as well. So I'm starting a thread with my specs, I am going to point out my exact specs and how well Bigbox runs for me. I really hope others will join in and post there pc specs, so that a newcomer can just say, "yep thats me" spec wise, and jump right in. Personal. i5 -3750k 16gb ddr
  6. This may be the answer to my Intellivision Emulation Controller difficulties: Intellivision Ultimate PC Interface. Does anyone have any experience with this thing?

  8. For you purveyors of Peta-Bytes, this may interest you, although it's clearly aimed at businesses that need to migrate insane amounts of data. AWS Snowball (an Amazon Web Service). It’s long been known that the fastest data transfer rate can be physical media delivered by courier. Amazon has taken this to an extreme, by announcing Snowmobile, an 18-wheeler semi-trailer truck that will carry 100 petabytes (100PB) in a shipping container from the customer premises for upload to the Amazon Web Services (AWS) cloud, with a crap-load of Snowballs in the back of the truck.
  9. Well, if you haven't, it's bad-ass, non-volatile memory technology. Up to 1000x faster and more durable than NAND, and 10x the density of DRAM. Check out the demo of Rob Crooke (Senior VP and GM of Intel's Non-Volatile Memory Solutions Group) transferring a file at nearly 2GB/s! using 3D XPoint-based Optane SSDs. 2GB/second?!?! Nice! If you've read any of my stuff in the past, you'll know I love hardware advancements. I suspect this one (2GB/s transfer speeds) might give our prestigious contributor, DOS76, a Nerdgasm, as he would phrase it.
  10. I'm using Launchbox on an (Win 19) AMD 350 PC. I'm amazed it works all the way up to SNES, and is actually smooth when in emulation. It's either this PC, or very close http://www.newegg.com/Product/Product.aspx?Item=N82E16856119050. I want to do more emulation (PS1, N64, and whatever I can achieve e.g. Gamecube...), and see much snappier BigBox Performance. I need a new PC, and would love input on what to look for. I use Big Box in a my living room, in a media console. I'll want something small form factor (so no towers, nor am I interested in laptops). I liked t
  11. So, I'm sure most of you guys are aware that Nintendo's new "NES Classic" has actually come out in the USA at a street price of $60, and is selling out super fast at many retailers. While the styling of the device itself is very "retro", it seems to be, for all intents and purposes, some kind of purpose-built hardware that just runs an NES emulator and lets you switch between 30 built in ROMs. It also has save states. I'm curious what people here make of this. My take on this: much like with their Amiibos and other stuff, Nintendo has a knack for making products that I have absol
