Re: Why Isn't Emulation Good Enough??

To pre-empt the next question. :wink: Once you've got the pad set up with windows, when you open a game in Mame, hit the TAB key. Select General Controls, then player 1 controls. Now for each control (Up, Down, Left, Right, Button 1,2,3 etc) press Return on your keyboard then press the correspondin...

Re: Why Isn't Emulation Good Enough??

Seems to be all sorted now. Anybody have any recommendations for a reasonably priced game controller? Don't mind whether it's a stick or pad. You talking about a digital pad or just any type of controller? Your 360 pad will work fine with mame if you're not looking for something specific. Hey great...

Re: Why Isn't Emulation Good Enough??

I'm really looking forward to trying out MAME for the first time. But every time I try to launch a game, I get an error message that states file names affixed with "NOT FOUND". Hate to sound stupid but I've done everything that the FAQs told me to do including auditing the ROMS. It's all to no avail...

Re: Best beat em up series

Would love to play it again though, although that may be rather tricky :cry: Try Mame. 8) Now I'm gonna sound really lame/stupid, but how would one go about acquiring MAME? One of my friends used to have it many years ago on his PC and it was great! You have to pay for everything nowadays ROM-wise ...

Re: Best beat em up series

PS- There was an SNK scrolling fighter that I played a couple of times in the arcade, but I can't for the life of me remember what it was called. It certainly wasn't Burning Fight as I've got that. All I recall is that one of the playable characters was an oriental dude in white with long black hai...

Re: Best beat em up series

1 on 1 fighter it would almost certainly have to be SSFIV. Or maybe it'll be SF3 3rd Strike when it comes to xbox Live. Never did have it first time around. It's very well thought of in these hallowed pages and you guys have never led me wrong yet! Scrolling beat em up series would be Streets of Rag...

Thanks snowkatt, I was a bit disappointed with MVC2, and with MVC3 if I'm brutally honest :oops:

Re: 20 years of Street Fighter II

I remember I was on hols at Hopton holiday village in Norfolk when I saw it for the first time which would have been c.1991-2? I was only 12 at the time, and it had attracted a large group of older kids. I waited until they had dispersed before daring to go myself. Slipped 20p in for one credit, and...

Re: What games/consoles have you bought this week??

Hey guys, Just been to CEX and picked up CoC Dark Corners of the Earth on xbox, and Capcom VS SNK 2 on PS2. Also Soul Reaver 2 and Legacy of Kain Defiance just arrived from Amazon. Love the LoK games, except Blood Omen 2 which was a bit poo IMO. Anybody know if the PS2 version of Cap VS SNK 2 is any...

Re: Your dream beat em up

At the risk of sounding stupid, Capcom Vs SNK 3? Or has that been done? :? Failing that the Tekken/SF crossovers sound quite intriguing in concept, although I must admit that I'm rather more looking forward to seeing the Namco bunch in 2.5D than Ryu and the guys in 3D. Hopefully it'll be better tha...
