  1. I do not think so, as wearecity said it can be done the other way around. I used a tool (By Ross) which batch converted older layouts to .fml when I painstakingly converted all old formats to work with the current v20.1. The reason for this was to uniform the legacy section. Please remember though the converted layouts were just that, converted not enhanced with the newer features the later emulators embraced.
  2. Spot anything familiar?
  3. Just bought this on the switch. Quite different to other Lego games. Loads of information (overload maybe) and could be erring away for the simplistic control methods for other games which I think might be a bad move. Bloody hell though it's going to take a long time to get through it. Even a dash through a New Hope (I always belt through story mode as fast as possible to get to the free play asap) has taken me nearly 2 hours and I've just delivered the plans so say 2 plus hours per film then there is the whole revisiting each level to get mini kits etc etc - it's going to me months of game play on this one... well done TT

  7. 2710 MFME Layouts (20220318)
  8. Eeee you are nee bother like. There are no duplicates in the list. They are different versions of games, i.e. different jackpots, classics, DXs etc... (here is a new list) Fruit Machine Layouts - MFME (20220318).zip
  9. I can take the doubt away for you. Here is a current list of all MFME layouts to date, all 6442 of them. (Publicly released of course) MFME Layouts (20220317).zip
  10. I think it was the early Barcrest machine 'Flowery Twats'

    Indeed, back in the day, can't remember the magazine but they used to basically compare Arcade games to the 'home' equivalent. I remember them showing the maps for Pac-Man, that if you followed would never get eaten by the ghosts and showed a similar method for the Atari Home version in the same article.
  12. Cheers @Reg and @serene02 Unfortunately due to lack of time (and how things have advanced since I last built a MAME cabinet) I'd love a as 'plug n play' as possible. So looking for the ready built option I guess. However I'd love one that has as much updating options as possible. So ideally a cabinet with a good number of the best emulators on there that has a user friendly interface so I can add or even delete roms so I can get a smaller than 9000 plus games!!! but my favourites on there. Obviously no way I'll be regularly playing 9000 games. So I guess a cabinet with a USB/SD card or HDD plug in play update option to add/remove roms and update emulators would be great. Even better one with both emulators and Mister built in but I presume that would cause a few headaches on the GUI front. So just thinking out loud here but Arcade games are a must as genuine as possible so I presume MAME not Mister is the way forward here. Would love plenty of console games on there from the NES, SNES, Gameboy(s) Megadrive, Saturn, Dreamcast etc etc too.
  13. After some advice if possible. I'm looking to purchase an 'arcade' machine for the daughter, she is well into retro gaming. I would obviously be aiming for a cabinet. Back in the day (Late 1990s) I had my second PC inside one running MAME. I would really love one to run most emulators if possible, like SNES, Megadrive, Spectrum, NES, Gameboy etc etc and of course MAME. What is the best solution to this? Is it possible to use the Mister in a cabinet, she really wants a full size cabinet? (I understand the limitations of the Mister for MAME etc..) I really do not have the time or even the knowhow nowadays to 'manufacture' one so I am willing to pay a bit extra to have a ready built system. Hopefully one I can 'open' up the back and add the 'roms' of my choice if that can be done. Cheers for any help.
  14. Not much competition though is there haha
  15. Yes it can all be fixed by reading the posts in the legacy section, this one here is particularly helpful..
  16. All the layouts in the Legacy section are factory reset, so you begin from scratch. Enjoy!
  17. I think so... 7's Up (JPM) [Rom].zip
  18. Here is the truth on this one because I actually know the answer Originally the legacy section was to hold no roms, it still does not - just layouts. However Chris updated MFME to 'call home' so to speak to download the roms required from here somewhere in the backend. This of course required me to send all the new roms to Reg to upload and is something I've not done for over a year. What makes some layouts work and some not. Basically the legacy layouts are factory reset and uniformed. So for example if you have Andy Capp layout 1 running acap1.bin but then Andy Capp layout 4 the designer decided to call the roms andycapp1.bin then I will have changed it back to the original to make the sets more uniform and to cut down on duplicate roms on the backend. The main culprits in this are the ones in question. A lot of Reflex roms are renamed to get rid of the silly long not needed names. So in short MFME is looking for something that is not in the backend so will report an error. However as folks have said this mainly effects newer games so just get the roms via the normal method. I've had a hell of a 2021 with illness, losing my main job, starting my own business, moving shops, more health issues etc etc and yesterday just got the legacy section back on track. My next mission once I speak to @Reg is to sort the Rom backend out. This will take time and at the moment maybe 10% of stuff does not work but that 10% are newer layouts and cane be obtained fully working via the normal downloads section. I will get this sorted, it's just going to take a little more time. Thanks.
  19. Totally agree so I would never mention Hippotackle as my fishing tackle store @Reg remove at your leisure haha...
  20. A real life one? eBay maybe... A layout? Here, try the search facilities.
  21. A rom? Programming skills, writing code etc. A layout? There is a dummies guide on here somewhere... good luck.
  22. Grammar Nazi says YES!
  23. Shame as all the layouts you wanted are there.... for a very small price
