Very nice :)  Not sure about Willy Wonga but Toastbusters has been emulated albeit in classic form.  I know we could do with somme very high res images of both if its not too much trouble.

Thats no problem at all. Just let me know how you want them and what pics you need and ill be more than happy to.

I have downloaded the emulator but some of the DX's are bigger than my screen, is there a way to keep it to my screen size?

For pictures, what we need a a full cab shot taken at normal playing height, then closeups of the top & bottom panels with lamps off.  Doesn't matter if they're taken slightly to the side or centered so long as you can minimise any flashburn or glare.  After that reel symbols/bands are a good idea plus buttons.  Basically as much as you can get :)

Back to the emulator..

The latest version 20.1 should autoscale layouts to fit your screen.  Which version of MFME do you have?

Okie no probs, im replacing a few bulbs on wedensday/ Thursday depending on when they land so will get images then.

I havent got my laptop on me at the min but will check later.
If its an older version can I get the emulator from the site or do I need to joine somewhere else?

Thanks for the help

You'll need to sign up to Desert Island fruits which is the only place to get the latest version.  Then, either make a donation (that'll gain you instant access to downloads) or make a few introductary posts (like you did here) to build up 'Rep' points.  Once you have enough you'll have access to the downloads.

This might seem to be a long winded way to get MFME these days but we're continuing to respect the wishes of the developer (wizard) who sadly passed away earlier this year.

As for images, great stuff!!  Thank you :)

Ah! that's a buggar!!  I think 6.1 is the latest version which runs on Win7.

Unfortunately the latest releases won't run but there are lots in the legacy section that will - if you have access.
