so gave up and took one of Ghouls 'n' Ghosts on FUSION.

Now have that as an XBOX wallpaper. looks quite spunky, actually. but not as good as yours, though. :(
There should also be an 'images' folder under your MAME32 folder, containing a zip file full of screenshots that are used as the "preview" shot for each game in the MAME browser.
GAME OVER YEEEAAAHHH!

Nice collection :) particularly envious of the Tec Toy stuff.

What's with the multiple copies of the same games though?

where do you mean? None of these are the same, they are all variations. (apart from the pic of the arcade stand thing with the Sonic 2's)

ve had more Tec Toy stuff since these photo's. I'll perhaps re-take them in a few months.
