This may be a bit OT but I have just discovered another really great HTPC (any PC) bit of entertainment...


If any of you are old arcade kids and remember putting all your pocket money into 1942, Street Fighter, etc should check out MAME ... This may not be news to some and I remember checking this out a couple of years ago but MAME32 now has options to force resolution (so no projector resync) and I just found sound and gamepad support to be really improved...


I am one of those people who dont have the interest in gaming to play for hours which is what many new games need to get good / master them and having 1000's of classics available is really appealing...


Even though many of you may already know, or not care, if you are partial to :-
  • Short 5 minute gaming spurts
  • Classic gaming
  • Seeing those classics again
Then you should check this out...


Obviously they are at resolutions that seem by todays standards laughable and in this mode it tends to shrink and center them but somehow that is much of the appeal... I am definitely keeping this http://www.avsforum.com/ubb/cool.gif
