The roms NEED to be in the same folder as the layout. 

When I mentioned separate folders I meant for each layout/game :)

Thank you i will go and check out the website im running 10.1 so sounds like im well behind with the times
Its been years since i played around with pc,s i think XP was still in use and vista  was just coming out so its like starting from scratch again
I found  a Big Shot 2p version on here and money bags which were my favourite machines back in the day they were in every arcade in Hastings along with Win A gain Banker etc
Going to sound like a complete newbie now i extracted them to the same folder as i did with Bar X thank you for that by the way but it gives me an error ROM Entry Missing
I have looked over the forum and can only find 1 post that covers this and from what i can gather its an issue with the .gam file and it needs to be renamed to match the ROM names Which i dont mind trying what software do i need to open the .gam file 
I thank you in advance and everyone who has anything to do with recreating the ROM's massive respect to all that put the time and effort in to keep these classic machines alive
Rob


First thing is don't extract them to the same folder.  Always create a separate folder for each game.  That way things don't get overwritten by mistake.  It also makes them easier to find.

A .GAM file can be opened with Windows Notepad, just ensure it saves as a .gam & not .txt, but TBH you shouldn't ever need to alter a .gam file.

If you have a rom not found issue, try unzipping the game again but put it in its own folder.  If you still have problems let me know.  Its possible roms weren't included in the release although very unlikely.

These are typical questions for a beginner so don't worry.  Anything you want to ask - fire away, but it would be a good idea to stick them in the MFME Q & A section so others can find the post easily.

My name is Rob
I found this forum out of curiosity after reading about old school fruit machines
i grew up in Hastings and played many of the games and fruit machines from the 80s and spent a lot of time in the arcades the ones i recall are
Big Shot 10p  £3 win anything over £1.50 was paid in tokens
Smash n Grab 10p £3 win
Win A Gain   2p    £1.50 win
Money Bags   2p    £1.50 win
Cashcade     2p    £1.50 win
Banker       2p    £1.50 win
Line up      10p   £2.00 win
I would love to experience these again being a complete novice i welcome any help trying to find out if any of these still exist and where to find them 
I recently installed MFME on my laptop  and managed to find Eachway Nudger and Bar X [Bar Deluxe] which are working fine i would love to get a few more
so any recommendations that i have not listed would be great as would any advice

Rob



Hi Rob, thanks for the intro and welcome to DADsFME.

I'd say most, if not all of the machines you mentioned are emulated.  You'd don't say which version of the emulator you have installed but the latest version (MFME 20.1) is only available from https://www.desertislandfruits.com, so if you're not a member there already, I recommend you sign up.  They also have a brilliant section for 'new members' to help you get started.

Cheers

Quote from: jackymiester on Jan 02, 2021, 10:18 pmSo i was looking on fruitemu and i found temptation by bellfruit. not the clubber, which i never seen before. is there an image of the machine itself? i don't need it for resources, i am just interested on what it looks like.

There's this old System 83 if it's that one. You cannot see attachments on this board.
