If this had happened at least a few years ago I believe I would've been full of ideas, zest and enthusiasm...
Time, and memory, have sadly advanced more than I would have liked since the last MFME update 10 years ago, along with my interests and concentration to keep up with all the layouts.
Some are beautiful... Pook from DX'Cellent, Ploggy, DAD, JohnnyAFC and captain haddock spring to mind for DX and classic layouts - it is great to see them all back in the saddle and it is also very encouraging for all FME sites that newer members are taking the challenge and stepping up for some of the lost talent we've lost in the barren years.
I do pop in now and again... I have downloaded some layouts, but sadly, unlike almost a decade ago when all I had a computer for was MFME - they may get played once a week, if that and only for 10 minutes or so... I just can't get 'back into it' and I regret that very much.
Chris (Wizard) has put some very hard work into MFME 5 - he has faced some opposition (from me in the past) from MAME etc, but resolved it all and released this new upgrade that I am sure will bring some new blood into a scene that was dying a death - that is great... It means that for many more years to come, FME with the MFME upgrade and update, will continue to flourish and survive with a lot of techs still to do and layouts to be revisited, but sadly, I don't think I will really be taking part in the full journey of it - mainly because I can't keep up with it all - and mainly because my love and zest for MFME and FME has died.
I do wish FME well for the future, I really do... I hope that there are many more updates for it too and that scene, unlike past endeavours, get along with each other and encourage each other in what can (and in my case was) be a very wonderful journey.
Love and peace,
