    20% off EmuMovies Yearly and Lifetime subscriptions during the week ending 11/14/2010. I have extended the discount to 12-01-10 for those that missed it the first time.

    Spent the last week making some major upgrades to the website and with the release of our Automated Download Service and the Upcoming GBA video snap set, I felt like celebrating. So if you have been holding off installing video snaps in your Front-End wait no longer!

Want to help a museum?

New forum member asbestosforlunch is asking for some ideas:
    Hi I volunteer at a museum in central New Jersey, and I am working on an exhibit which I believe could be improved with MAME cabinet-type equipment and software. The exhibit is a Cold War era fallout shelter, which is stocked with old Civil Defense rations and other supplies. I also have a computer connected to a large television and a surround sound system, for the purpose of displaying movies and sound clips. Because someone cannot always be at the exhibit when the museum is open, I am trying to make it somewhat autonomous, or at least idiot proof.

    My idea is to use arcade controls to limit what someone could do with the computer, and use a front-end to block out the rest of whatever OS I would be using. A friend of mine recommended this site to look for help when he heard my basic idea. When I started reading out the material used for this, it sounded perfect. I'm not sure I'll ever build a MAME cabinet, but I do have two pinball machines in the basement :)

Jump in if you think you have an idea or two that could help!

Free Portal!

You've probably seen this, but for those who haven't -- Hoopz let us know that Steam has Portal available for free from now until the 24th. I haven't played, but I'm told Portal is one of the "must try" games out there. Some folks don't get it, some folks love it. Steam is a download gaming service with a small client that runs on your machine to handle the licensing. Supposed to be fairly unobtrusive. I usually resist such things but for free...?

Forum member NiN^_^NiN decided to embrace the BYO spirit of BYOAC and created a set of Space Invaders wall decals for his stairwell. WIP still, but take a look!

Check this out! Melissa Jones of Nice Carvings, carves 4ft tall Centipede!

If you haven't heard about Nice Carvings and Melissa Jones, you need to check them out. Melissa's been doing arcade carvings for some time now (they look great, I have a bunch on my wall), but she's outdone herself now. Take a look at this 4 foot tall Centipede! Hmm... Pac Man shelf on one side, 4' tall Centipede on the other...

New project - A MAME cab's tale

Added A MAME cab's tale to the examples page.

The author had this to say about their project:

    This isn't exactly a build log, but it is a good overview of an arcade cabinet I built off Lusid's designs over the course of a couple years. It's me telling the story of my cabinet as much as I talk about it's construction.

This makes 1253 projects in the new database so far!
