i got a soft spot for Pleiads, parents ran a caravan park for a few years so i had the keys to the games room machines.. played a lot of Pleiads, and remained terrible at it regardless..

And Starblade, can't remember having played it bitd at all, didn't see many original cabs especially the big ones in the boonies..

unfortunately Starblade is to hard to control on a standard control setup.

well poop.. tho now i'm thinking thoughts about my racing sim rig and yoke controllers again.. that particular thought gets closer to reality each time i add another game to the list of things i could play on it..

Tinkle Pit. mame is just the gift that keeps on giving, after all the years of tinkering with it things i've never seen before still pop up..

I went through a long period where I would only play games I hadn't rated yet. Select random game, rate, select random game, rate... I should've kept going.

unfortunately Starblade is to hard to control on a standard control setup.It's been ages but I've played it fine on my standard upright mame cab. I can't check it due to a house move and no pc gear unpacked and setup yet. What is the issue with it ? The mame entry online says 1 stick 4 buttons.

I had a quick play but the controls were analog so there was no real control, ill have a look tomorrow there may be another rom that handles better

Just for info of others most analog or spinner games are still playable with a standard joystick, mame does a pretty good job of making do. Games like pole position, turbo, cockpit star wars are fine with a standard joystick. If you've got a mouse or analogue stick you'll get much better accuracy especially for games like star wars, I've never tried it but might be worth a shot for people playing on a regular computer.

I was tempted to nominate Tournament Arkanoid and Arkanoid Returns too, but it might have been a bit much ;)

ahh, centipede my nemesis, we may meet again.. one of the other machines in the park games room was centipede, it disliked me.. it must have done as it refused to give up its secrets, it didn't even bother to make itself fun to be terrible at like its friend pleiads.. but that was a lot of lives ago, and while you haven't changed centipede, maybe i have..

So thinking setting up a mouse would be easy in mame, apparantly not so easy. My mouse can control the mame menu, but nothing happens when I try to set x or y axises or use the mouse buttons. I've enabled mouse input in mame. Is there some sort of trickery I have missed ?

edit: got it, all good. Starblade is great with a mouse.

I have a Lowboy cabinet with a spinner set up, and PCBs of Arkanoid, Tournament Arkanoid and Gigas that I can swap in and out. Also have an Arkanoid Returns board, but that uses a horizontal monitor so I can't use it in that cab. Would love a Revenge of Doh board but never see them here in Aus.

Also have a trackball Lowboy with a Millipede PCB :023:
