Maximus Arcade
« on: March 21, 2012, 23:04:03 PM »
Anybody us the PC frontend Maximus Arcade?

I've recently got mine up and running on my PC and using HDMI to my TV, whilst it takes a little time adding every emulator to it, i see there are some homemade skins for it, can anyone recommend any good ones?

Yes you can edit and import your own skins, some of the homemade ones launch with video files and upgraded backgrounds and look very good, ill have to dl some and see which ones i like, and maybe edit them myself, check some out on youtube.

Ive been busy setting up this frontend which isnt just for Mame but all my emulators on my PC, though i have been playing Virtua Racing quite alot inbetween setting it up, loved that game in the arcades, its really nice to finally play the arcade version in the comfort of my living room!

Sorry for reviving this old thread, but I will be upgrading my MAME cab and wondered how you all got on with Maximus Arcade, or any other front ends you can recommend which are easy to set up.

I went off and tried Mala front end, so far so good so it looks like I will be going with Mala on my MAME cab. Also just trying to sort the Wii controller software to work for gun games on it too. Have modified a Wii sensor bar to be powered from USB and it worked lol.
