Tips: Loading MFME for the First Time

Recommended Posts

THIS THREAD MAY COME ACROSS AS CONDESCENDING BUT THE LEVEL OF SUPPORT I HAVE HAD TO GIVE TO PEOPLE OVER PERSONAL MESSAGES TO EVEN LOAD A LAYOUT IS BEYOND A JOKE.

THIS NEEDS STEP BY STEP INSTRUCTIONS THAT EVEN A SMALL CHILD COULD FOLLOW.

I CANNOT MAKE IT ANY SIMPLER THEN THIS - PLEASE DO NOT PM ME ON THIS - YOU WILL JUST BE SENT THIS LINK BACK.

IT REALLY IS NOT AS HARD AS SOME OF YOU ARE MAKING OUT.

LOADING MFME FOR THE FIRST TIME

Due to lots of new members who are looking to play games that have recently joined, there seems to be some problems, at least in my PM's in getting games running.

Here is a real basic guide for getting everything running.

1. The first thing you need is MFME, go to the site below - URL is shown in RED and you will need an account in GREEN.

2. Once at this site with an ACTIVE AND WORKING ACCOUNT, go to this URL:

MFME 6.0 Release Thread

3. Read the whole post, I have highlighted a key step in RED and a download link in GREEN.

4. One downloaded you will have a file in your downloads directory.

5. When extracted you will have a folder that looks like this below.  TAKE NOTE ON HOW YOU EXTRACT THE FILE AS YOU DO THIS FOR LAYOUTS.

6. Now you want to play a layout, go to wherever you want to and download a layout as before, the download link is in GREEN.

7. Whatever method you used on step five ( 5. ) to extract MFME, YOU REPEAT ( DO AGAIN AS BEFORE ON STEP 5 ) ON THIS ITEM YOU HAVE DOWNLOADED.

8. You should have something like this.  I have shown in GREEN the .GAM file.  This is what you load into MFME.

9. With MFME running that you downloaded in step four ( 4. ), click on FILE, LOAD GAME and browse to the LOCATION ( AS SHOWN ON STEP 8 ) where the .GAM file is located and then you CLICK ON IT. I have shown in GREEN where to do this.

10. Your game will be loaded as below.  You are on YOUR OWN FROM HERE AND THERE IS NOTHING ELSE I CAN SHOW YOU when it comes to lauching and running a game within MFME.

I good post.........remind me at work, 3 times a year the schools MIS systems are updated, by way of the zip file, the contents of which has to be imported into the MIS.

A new one has just been released, and one Monday we will get a few hundred calls saying they've read the instructions and can't get the file imported.  Every time it's because they've not extracted it first..........even though it's in the instructions!!!

Anyway, a really goot article, clear and concise.  We call them "Noddy notes" at work.  ie step by step with pictures that even Noddy could follow.

:)

NQ.
