  • GameEx

    I've been playing around with this front end today and im very impressed by it. I got sick of the instability and mood swings of Atomic FE.
    This thing is easy to set up with a butt load of features that leave most front ends for dead, its great specially if you're setting up a multi emulator cab like me.
    Highly recommended!! i've added a link to the Links Directory.

            Awesome. Cheers for that.

            Out of curiosity, what spec PC hardware are you running it on? It looks very "everything and the kitchen sink" (which is not a bad thing, mind you). How's it go for performance on older hardware?

            I'm building a cab for the girls, and I need a front-end that will be as simple to use as possible, and "button masher" resistant. I might trial this one and see how it goes. I'm a big MAMEWah fan, but my 6 year old just constantly finds ways to break the front end. God knows how - if I mash all the buttons I can't do the damage she does. I swear kids are the best software beta testers in the world.

              Are you using the mamewah lockout feature? Once set they can't really do anything.

              GameEx is sweet but much more resource intensive and I hated waiting 30 seconds for that shitty nag screen. Haven't looked at it again in almost 2 years.

                I intend to donate to get rid of the nag screen once I've given it more of a go. At this stage its interface, ease of setting up and features have impressed me.
                I love how it has the ready to go emu dat files with information about the games etc.
                I just put a asus a7n8x-x nforce 2 mobo in it running 1 gig of old ddr ram and a XP 2500+
                The old mobo was a 87V8X-MX with a XP2400+. I hate VIA crap I had nothing but stability issues with this mobo but it was the only mobo i could get hold offrom ebay at the time that i could use with the ram and processors i have lying around.
                I havent been able to get right into it because my Jpac is ****ed but I've still be able to set emus up etc remotely via TightVNC

                  I don't believe so. It's a *very* old MAMEWah version. I'll check it out.

                  GameEx might be a little resource intensive for my old clunker hardware.

                  I used Lemon Launcher for a bit too:

                  Pretty basic, no-frills front-end, but good for old shitty hardware.

                    Yes if I was going to use GameEx I would donate too. I just don't really like it that much. I should look at it again and Tom spends inordinate time adding features to it but Mamewah has served me well for 6 years or so.

                    Elvis the lockout feature has been in mamewah since almost the start. It's just a value in the ini. Check it out. Stops my kids mucking it up

                          That's a cool feature. There's been a few guys who have tried making various MAME screensavers over the years, and they've all flopped. Someone should approach the guy to do a generic Windows screensaver in the same way.

                            Its a bloody great idea! I just registered it, I think 14 pounds ($32 AUD) is well worth it as it opens up a heap of features.
