You know what this game needs? Mods and editors to keep it popular and alive.

Specifically a level editor.

The whole point of gauntlet was going through seemingly endless dungeons. This new version of the game, has a serious lack thereof.

User created dungeons would fix this.
Does this game even have a map randomizer like Diablo?

Man, the first of the great so-called "WoW killers". There were so many.

AoC, Warhammer Online, Matrix, etc...

Yep, 1-20 in AoC was amazing. After that it was a turd.

Warhammer Online was fantastic...as long as you had a group to play with. So much content that required other people, very little other people to play it with.

I beta tested the Matrix and had no interest in playing it at release. Blah.
How much time does going from levels 1 to 20 last? In original classic WoW (before and after its release), it didn't take that long if played a lot which I don't have these days.

People are still playing this?
Wow, already? I still haven't tried it even though I got this game for free. :/

Play the starter zone (levels 1-20). It's quite fun. After that...uninstall. Though after 7 years (!!!), I doubt the game holds up as well.
Is starter parts free? I am sure the game hold ups well on my very old, updated Windows XP Pro SP3 machine. Haha.

Played bubble bobble in an arcade down in Daytona Beach, Florida when I was a kid and was hooked, was always one of my favorite games for NES after I eventually got it for that.

MAME rocks, so much dedication and time put into making sure these machines are faithfully able to be emulated on machines of all sizes.

I'll have to check out this RetroArch/Kodi thing that was mentioned here as I already use Kodi with the 1Channel addon for watching shows & movies, but having a emulation frontend baked in would be awesome!


Also have to give a mention to my buddy who has been making MameHUB for a while now, which allows you to play most of the MAME/MESS library of games (even SNES titles!) online with friends:

http://www.mamehub.info/
MameHUB rocks. It needs to get bigger and more popular!!! We need more old school gamers so we can play Gauntlet, Rampage, Operation Thunderbolt, fighting games, etc.

Bubble Bobble rocked. I can still remember every note of the main music from that game...
I remember seeing it in my freshman dorm(itory) lounge. I liked it a lot.

MAME has come a long, long way. A great emulator that allowed me to relive a lot of my arcade life years, here's to more years of MAME.
Yep. I remember discovering emulators, like MAME, back in in college (mid (19)90s).

For me, I read about MAME in the back of a PC Format mag, when it was then supporting a whopping 9 games. Crazy.
IIRC, I read about emulators on Avault.com (remember that web site?). I was amazed in replaying Atari 2600, arcade, Apple 2, etc.

I wished more people played MAME online with MAMEhub (http://www.mamehub.info/) and very old arcade games (e.g., Gauntlet 1 and 2) though. Kaillera is too old like me. They were pretty awesome when old school gamers played!

I bet that's some really interesting code.

It's worth noting that the MAME source was always visible, just not under an open source license.
I was surprised it wasn't already under open source license.

Hey Blue, I just loaded up the site a minute or so ago and Firefox asked me if I would allow "Starsizzle" to access my location data. I obviously declined, but just thought I'd bring it to your attention.




Thanks
