That sounds a bit strange, you weren't looking at the 48-in-1 list by accident were you?

I'm suprised such common (classic) games aren't in the 1000-in-1?

Before flying too far off the handle, how about you PM Gamedude and ask him?

hi guys, no i recieved a email with a list of games for the other 1000 game board, full list in alphabetical order and dorian said all the games are on this red box board but the aspect ratio on the red box is better.....hence why i bought the red box, i made a call to the shop sat morning and they said all games in the book are on the list..
ive been thru and only got around 600 and not all are here.
anyone got a red box board if so can you tell me which game file ie 148 and what number the game is for a reference so i can see if this is a dud board perhaps.
any of the above games as a ref would be much appreciated
cheers

Guys, you've got a point but try and be impartial too.

I'd be massively pissed if my favourite games weren't on the board when I was told they would be... but on the other hand you're right that thecomps should contact Dorian before the flame (first post).

thecomps latest post though wasn't continuing that flame, he's simply asking if anybody else with the same box could help him better diagnose it, to see whether it could be a faulty box.

Both parties deserve the benefit of doubt :)

I know on the other 1000 in one, it doesn't have Galaga, not sure about Moon Patrol.
But have managed to add these games in as well as Wonderboy. and easy enough to change the aspect ratio..

Not sure about the red box unit.
I fair amount of people have bout these so hopefully one of them will reply...

Just so you know.
It has 1000 odd games... not 5000+ which are actually out there. There is no easy way to get EXACTLY what you want in one package.
it does have GALAGA, I have played it on the redbox, it also has ghost n goblins.
I know that because I was preparing one all Saturday morning which is why I could not answer the phone on Saturday (sorry for that) it was very last minute stuff but at least there was two strippers!! :118:
It has altered beast and hyper olympic as well, some games use the japanese version of the games name like ghost n goblins for example.
There is another post here of the games list and it was compiled kindly by another member (not sure if its still available)
It is also the cheapest all in one games system around with that many games pre-installed, If you have to have some game that the system does not have then just buy that board.

In all honesty I have sold half my stock and have yet to have any complaints, a niggle here or there maybe but out of the box for the price it is you wont be building a mame system cheaper.
I really dont know what else you want me to do here :unsure

The 48in1 uses a vertical monitor you will need another cab

I put it here for all to see, the games list is based on the cryptic mame short names (I think)

When i sort out my x in one,. the non redbox unit.
I'll write another how to guide of adding your own roms in, I can't see it to be any different than the red box unit...

I've just gone in went through all the games that are coctail-able and made them in their Special directory and will only publish this, as it's going to be used in my Hankin....

Only issue I have is I've rooted some thing and any game that uses FBA freezes, seeing to this now, although won;t be used in my Hankin, would still prefer it to be 100%...:cool:

So is the gamebox 1000 in 1 full of shit or not? :confused: I think if it is not, the title of this thread should be changed because it doesn't really promote the gamebox and could be detrimental to the sellers (e.g. GameDude).

Its not ful of shit.... I had a thecomps box and half the games were disabled, it has a reset the games button and when used all the rest show up again, I guess its up to a mod or the member to change the title if they see fit

Hey Dorian, my question was not aimed at you, I just thought that the title of this thread (posted by thecomps) did not lend itself to promotion of the gamebox, particularly when the problem ended up just being thecomps gamebox and not across the board.

2nd May 2008, 01:14 PM
Yes the title should be changed. Should be Red Box ROCKS!!!!!

I am very happy with my Red box, kicks ass.
I would recommend these to anyone that wants shitloads of good games.

The only downfall is trying to find some games but thats what you get when you have 1000 games ++++

P.S. I think its more like 1400 games unless some are duplicated.

hello,
just need to clarify here, i was after the original version of galaga and ghosts n goblins and all the oldies, hence why i purchased the red box.
dorian has since rebooted the box {thanks for that}and now have all games available as per booklet
it has galaga88 and ghouls n ghosts damn!!! not the same as originals but in saying that i would totally recommend the red box to anyone after a big variety of games!!!
for entertainment purpose the red box has it all... from fighting to shooters to puzzle games and the like. i think i have been a tad misunderstood but whats said is said,
i have been asked to read the rules again tonight before my post which i totally agree with and always intended to comply with.
sorry if i offended any or all of you as that was not my intentions {gamedude especially} i really appreciate the knowledge you guys have and hope to learn a lot from you in time.
hope we get some clarity here and move on.... again to all wishing to buy a red box
GET ON BOARD you will get a fantastic price from the GAMEDUDE.
kind regards

If they're anything like the other 1000 in 1, check out under emulation on how to add \ update games. I don;t have a red box unit, but Dorian may be able to confirm if the layout is the same?

Hey Dorian

Any chance of letting us know what all the buttons do on this box.

Is one of them buttons the reset?

Cheers, not sure if this has been answered already . . .

F4 is for game selection reset (wait until the dings stop at about two minutes)
F3 changes the language
F2 and F1 are supposed to change difficulty but I have not played with it yet
