  1. if you already have MFME 20 installed it will find it and just work, no setting up!
  2. its free to download, you might need to be a member of DesertIslandFruits though
  3. Done a bit more fiddling today. I got hold of a cheapo old Intel NUC (it's absolutely tiny but suprisingly great for emulation) and got the MFME emulator all working on it then added them to the touch-play front end (free). So I just need to get hold of a touch screen monitor now (to use in vertical mode) and I'll have the mame cab, pinball and new bonus fruity selection all on the go WIP crappy screenshot of me faffing about on a normal widescreen monitor. Even crappier shakeycam video of WIP
  4. Like so many others posting tonight, I pretty much owe my career, life of tech tinkering and gaming to Sir Clive, terrible news, a true legend.

  6. Apologies if this triggers some peoples habits in advance. I'm very middle aged now and yet I've successfully manged to avoid ever playing any fruit machines. Along with mountains of accumulated gaming stuff over the years I also have an arcade cab and virtual pinball so I thought, you know what would fit in well with those, some sort of fruity, thus began my rabbit hole journey. So in the last few days I've joined various emulation forums etc and finally got my head round it. I've got MFME up and running perfectly and even set up "Arcade Simulator" to have a wander round my own private collection of gamblers. Next step is to buy some sort of touchscreen and mini pc to set up with a touch-play front end for MFME. The main thing I have learned is I was very very right not to pump any money into these ever, and never will. Anyway here's a quick video I did for a friend showing him what I'd been up to (Arcade Simulator) thought some of you might get a kick out of it (apologies if embedding doesnt work, I set it to 18+ because of gambling)
  7. Mr Torgue playing a lute to Babymetal. Pre-ordered.
  8. If you like Monster Hunter games then this is the film for you, it is much better than the live action disaster. Won't convince non players I don't think but I enjoyed that immensely!
  9. I don't normally binge but blasted through these this morning. I'm sure the old school purists will have plenty to moan about but I enjoyed that immensely and really want the next 5 asap!
  10. I've responded to that so you should be onboard now shipmate \o/
  11. @Andy_Whythe Xbox Console Companion still shows clubs, the new Xbox app doesnt. The console companion is just limping along and a bit broken sometimes but you should be able to manage clubs from that. Can you do anything at this link? https://account.xbox.com/en-gb/clubs/profile?clubid=3379858972117707
  12. I've just loaded mine up on the X to check, I don't get tearing at all 4k 60Hz, 10Bit HDR monitor (BenQ) and TV (older LG OLED) both fine. Here's a Twitter post showing someone else getting it. I wonder if it's related to HDR bits or something?
  13. @strider is the new expansion stand alone? I've been slowly lapsing back to M:tg having played the physical version from revised (bought some power 9 proxies the other day ;p) and a massive fan of the Salvatore Forgotten Realms books.
  14. Big fan of this kind of game too, great list so far. Planet Alpha from this months Games with Gold fits this description nicely too. Going a bit more retro Another World and Flashback
  15. Imminently I guess, it was features pretty heavily on the MS 2021 thing last night as part of the Win 11 bumf.
  16. Exactly, Sea of Thieves runs at 60fps in the browser, way way better than even my One X did.
  17. Have to say I'm super impressed with the improvements to streaming now, tried SoT, Gears and Hotshots last night on an absolutely ancient macbook via the browser and was super impressed, to the point that I'd say if you only have an older xbox one dont bother just play via cloud, the framerate was absolutely silky smooth.
  18. #2 is absolutely bugged as hell, no made it though it yet as it's locked me out of places and all sorts. It is also not instanced so another crew there makes for a very bad time, they didnt really think this one through which is a shame after the amazing first episode.
  19. a couple of friends that tried it have warned dont even attempt #2 if theres other players in the vicinity (It's not instanced apparently and causes knock on effects)
