  1. Another enjoyable video. A JPEMU one might be worth doing sometime in the future, as well, as there are probably some exclusive on that as well. I'm not sure I played Super Star for real. I certainly don't remember any clear memories of playing it. Scorpion 1&2 was around quite sometime when you consider that Jackpots started at £4 and ended up at £10, although I'm not sure any actual £10 jackpot machines where built on it, just upgrades from £6/£8 to to £10.

    My Amiga 520

    I think I still have my A1200 in the back of a cupboard or in a large box somewhere. I assume this is an A500, as the 520 is the TV modulator for the A500. Discussed before, but my favourite home computer/console. When I used to use winuae for Amiga emulation, I would put on the disk drive sounds to make it sound more authentic. Might be the same still, but I could never get the display settings in the emulator 100% to my liking. Can't remember why though.
  3. This was a good children's serial drama. Running Scared, starred DI Burnside out of The Bill.
  4. Glad you stumbled upon us. Whilst not difficult to get going, because of the amount of layouts and versions of emulators, you can sometimes find something that may not run. So also join up at the fruit machine emulation sites as you'll find lots of advice and fixes to older layouts that may not work straight away with mfme v6.1
  5. Welcome to the MAME of Fruit Machine Emulation world.
  6. Not going to spoil it, but v v v v v nice.
  7. View File Wet N Wild - New Edition A new version of Wet N Wild, based on this picture of the machine. Submitter wearecity Submitted 20/03/19 Category Mazooma  
  8. I think they may be confusing here with fruit-emu.
  9. One day hopefully Pook, one day
  10. Not quite sure this is in the right section of the forum. You may have seen it by now but the layout has been updated at fruit-emu. Fingers crossed the sound turns up at some point.
  11. I like the theme tune to Interceptor. Good idea for a program, I like the cat and mouse idea. Hart to Hart, so cheesy but definitely a favourite of mine. Got the first couple of series on DVD. Watched others on YouTube but they keep getting taken down. Stephanie Powers, I reckon is as sweet in real life as her character.
  12. Think the download section has confused me lol, so here's the picture of the machine used to create the layout and the layout screenshot itself. Also Crackman font required is in the zip file.
  13. View File Pacmania Classic Pacmania, a Scorpion 4 tech machine by Mazooma. Keys - ` = Cancel, 1-3 Holds 1 to 3, S=Stop/Collect, E=Exchange for Feature, Space = Start/Gamble.

  14. One I never played in the arcade, but played the 8 bit and 16 bit versions a hell of a lot. Wizard is about to die... Surely is one of the most well known sounds from video games of the 80s.
  15. Thanks Reg for your comments It's appreciate that you understand the effort that has gone into it. Yes the tools are really powerful when you play around them and v19 has improvements as well and I will release a v19 version, with minor improvements once it's released. I definitely tried to capture as much detail as possible of the real machine, just a shame I don't have a full image of the glass and the tiny picture available of the machine I have, doesn't represent the final machines look. Not sure if this is the style I'll be doing all the time. My only other definite for release WIP is Pacmania and that is already in this style, as it was due to be released before Top Gears, but I'm still working on the cards and I already had the cards I previously made for my original Top Gears classic. As for time, well because I had the cards made already and the original classic layout, it's taken probably about 10-12 hours. A lot of time, is spent running your eye over the glass numerous times as your eyes tend to catch the main detail and the little details are spotted sometimes after the 3rd or 4th scan over. Then I find myself repositioning things, several times. Once you get used to the tools I reckon you could probably shave quite a bit of time off. Eventually you have to say to yourself, that's enough, you can't do anymore.
  16. View File Top Gears - Press F3 Edition Here's a much updated Top Gears Classic Layout. An update to the previous version because I've learned quite a bit more about the creation tools. Called F3 edition, because you'll probably need to play in Full Screen Borderless mode to see some of the text as it's rather tall. Re-created from the attached picture, I've tried to be as accurate as the tools and my design skills allow. Scorpion 4 machine by Mazooma set on 30p play £15 Jackpot. Shortcuts. £1 - 0 , Cancel - `, Holds 1-3, Collect - C, Run For Your Money - R, Exchange - E, Start - space, Hi - H, Lo - L, Take Feature -F, Take Cash - T, Take Prize - P Thanks to Wizard for MFME. Thanks to the clipart artist/s, for the cars on the card flip reel. Thanks to Vectra for putting the overlays on the reel symbols. Thanks to whoever uploaded the roms. Thanks to whoever sold the glass on ebay to get some idea of the layout. Submitter wearecity Submitted 21/02/19 Category Mazooma  
  17. Thanks to all involved. A rare clubber I quite like playing for real.
  18. Another interesting video and another trick/emptier I didn't know about (not that I knew any ever lol). I was screaming at the screen, when you had those nudges and you already had the feature symbol on the 3rd reel, but nudged it away and you got all confused lmao.
  19. Regarding Teletext TV, we used to rent a tv from Radio Rentals back in the 70's and 80's, possibly even into the early 90's, because we couldn't afford to buy a TV outright and any repair bills. One advantage, except free repairs, they always had new technology to try and never cost anything more than 50p a week or so more. So like we had a video recorder very early on, we had a teletext tv in the very late 70's or early 80's. Me and my brother even pre teenage years, thought it was well cool and even used to watch for the updates to FSTE index lol. Later it was for the football, waiting for the half times to come through etc, or the update page notification coming up when a goal went in. I had a TV card for the PC up until the early 2000's as well for the telextet, being able to have multiple pages of latest footy scores open at the same time, was the best way to keep up, as I didn't have Sky and Soccer Saturday to watch. Used it until the BBC etc...started to have vidiprinters on the web.
  20. Thanks for the shout out. As this DX is back in the frame, I need to say at this point, I woefully underestimated the work that Richy put into completing the DX. I never felt right about putting my name to the DX because I didn't do it completely by myself, which is why I didn't put it on the DX caption or notes. Then after release, Richy contacted me via PM. End of it all, I felt bad and apologised and straighten things out with Richy in PM's as I didn't mean to offend. I am pleased to say, I did do the classic myself and was very happy with it.
  21. The Amiga, definitely was my favourite home computer, beating the ZX81, Speccy and C64 which I also had. For many of us, Commodore going bust, just came out of the blue and we saw it on the front of an Amiga magazine. I finally gave my A1200, up in July 1996, when I got my first PC, after I had deliberated about getting one for pretty much 6 months to a year before. I think had Commodore not gone bust and the Amiga still had been supported more or another more powerful Amiga had been released in 1994/95 time, I would have stuck with it until 1997/98, before getting a PC. I think with PC's becoming more and more popular and affordable, there wouldn't have been any real market for Amigas or another home computer beyond 1997/98 time anyway.
  22. Perhaps I should have said UK lol. Well it's the first one I can understand what the machine is saying.
  23. Great stuff, nice to see the first flip card reel DX.
  24. Sorry this is taking so long, but I really want to get it as perfect as possible. Hopefully the final WIP screenshot and the image i'm now working from
  25. Do we have any resources for the machine shown in the Queen Vic at 06:55 in the video below. I believe it's called The Great Train Robbery. I certainly remember playing the real machine.
