New look for GameEx Arcade Edition. When a video theme is not available but you have other artwork a dynamic video theme will be rendered. This works well for systems that have no video themes and also works well for systems that do not have a full collection of video themes with seamless cross fade between the two.
Please take a moment to think about online activity if your stuck at home. Watch your younger children as usual whilst they seem quiet and occupied. Watch out for an increase in scams and other activity whilst criminals and other undesirables are also loosing income and targets. Watch your own addictions too. If in doubt and you see this post feel free to run it by me. Be safe.
15th February 2020 - Instant Sheller Version 1.10 Includes an implementation of HackBGRT to change the boot logo on Windows 10 UEFI installs (requires secure boot to be disabled). Improved dialog boxes to restart system. Brand new feature to allow command arguments to be set on a shelled application and the ability to undo and reboot on windows startup by tapping the U key. Fixes app locking up on applying and undoing settings.
Just wanted to point out that this is a powerful addition. It can allow control of GameEx and PinballX in lots of ways. It does not require additional hardware. As well as Google assistant, it should work well with many cloud services including Cortana, and Alexa. For common uses use an account at https://ifttt.com.
i recently built a PC gaming box for a 4 year old and used GameEx Gamelauncher mode for the front end. Quick video showing it in action.
I purchased a refurbished mini Dell OptiPlex 9020 for $250 US and two Amazon wired Xbox 360 controllers.
The box runs several emulators under Retroarch and the latest MAME. It handles latest MAME, N64 and PSX with upscaling with ease and runs at full frame rate with MP4 videos. Its also incredibly easy to use due to GameEx Gamelauncher mode and all games can be exited by holding down the guide button on the controllers.
New GameEx - Gamelauncher mode - MAME:
Simple kid and arcade cab friendly front end mode with different lists by MAME Arcade game category.
