That's obvious...... because it never actually gets dark you never get the visual cue that it's time to have some evening drinkies so nows always as good a time as any.... ;-) Pat. PS: I'm sad to admit that when we did our tour around Denmark, Sweden and Norway we didn't take the time to check out F...

You're in Finland, it's winter so chances are it's always dark.......... why wouldn't you be drunk under those circumstances...... {;-þ)

Of course it would be nice if they gave you a UI means of adding new custom folders as well.... :)

Thanks.... I knew I was being thick...... I'd created a real folder inside the folders directory..... now it seems obvious when you mention it to create an ini file with a name that I wanted the folder called.... :)

Mame32 Custom folders - just call me thick!!

How does one go about getting the "Add to Custom Folder" in WolfMame to display any available folders? I want to add the games I like to play regularly into a custom folder to make it easier to find the ones I used to play "back in the day"...... ..... but for the life of me I can't work out how to ...

I think giving the scores is fine. I would reveal my current best score to anyone who asked. That's totally different than having an inp where competition can watch my inp and only from watching it then potentially beat my score. If you think your score is good enough to win why would you care abou...

Now only if they could have added an automatic ad blocker... There is one very simple technique to automatically block these. Edit the "hosts" file in your /windows/system32/drivers/etc folder and point every popup add URL back to 127.0.0.1. Then, every attempt at displaying an add will attempt to ...

I had to use Windows 2.0 to run the Elixir software for designing print forms for Xerox 40xx laser printers. It was absolutely diabolical..... particularly when I got home and used a nice desktop on my miggie each evening that made Windows 2.0 look like crap. Then again..... even Windows 2.0 was bet...

At least Windoze is more friendly for those who prefer to use the keyboard.... something that the Adobe Reader developers would do well not to go out of their way to interfere with.... I can't believe that they implemented code in the keydown/keypress event of their TextBoxes in that piece of junk t...

While the buttons and stick are great on my HotRod SE, I personally find that the gap between the buttons is a little too large if you're playing a game with more than 2 fire buttons. eg: On Gunsmoke I find my fingers starting to get a little too sore with the permanent stretch I need to use to cove...
