#320815 Which emulator to use - MFME9? or earlier

Posted by Magz on 23 September 2018 - 09:49 am



You'll need MFME 6.1 for most new layouts. Some older layouts require to be opened in 5.1 first and when saved will be converted (the emulator prompts) to work in 6.1.


All other versions are older and can be ignored (even if they have higher release numbers for reasons that are not worth going over again...).


Good luck!

IIUC the £2 limit is per play so for roulette it'd be a £2 total stake. Good thing this - and I think that the bill also allows for upcoming legislation for online.


This is, I think, a sign that the attitudes to gambling are changing in government (as they are in society) in a similar way to smoking. Used to be tolerated and applauded in some ways for the revenue - now seen as a menace that causes a lot more harm than the revenue warrants.

#317296 MFME v6.1 Released

It now tries to find your IP address every time MFME starts up ( Win7 version), if it's not picking the correct one enter it manually and click the static checkbox to prevent it from being changed.


The best solution is to add a loop back interface to your comms adaptors in the control panel and give it a static address like and then enter that in the box and click static. There is a thread explaining this on here somewhere.


This thread if anyone needs it...




As noted, you'll need to allow MFME through your local firewall as well if enabled...

Still watch Bully every so often - although this is probably the worst gamble anyone ever did...

As MFME 3.2 was around for ages and ages, a lot of the machines are listed under that version. They'll run fine in 5.1, and after it converts them to the new file format, they'll likely run in 6. There is no need to run any of the other versions - they are there largely for legacy purposes...

I set the address (just for fun) on the IPv4 settings on the loopback adaptor and then specified that as the address in MFME...

As you're having an issue, I am guessing that you don't have any sort of connection other than the tethered mobile connection - so no other wifi - LAN connection etc.


To get around this, you just need a network connection that is always on, but doesn't necessarily have Internet along with it.


Try this:


- Add a Microsoft Loopback Adaptor to your config


Google for this - but here's a link for Win10 - http://nil.uniza.sk/...pter-windows-10

Likely similar in other O/S


Once added, go to Control Panel - Network Connections and "Change Adapter Settings"

Find the Ethernet x entry which is linked to the Loopback Adapter

Double click entry and change the IPv4 settings to an internal IP ( would do - leave the mask as

Enter that IP in the MFME config page

Should then work without Internet


I tested this quickly on my laptop and it worked. If it doesn't - check your Windows Firewall and make sure MFME.EXE is allowed through.

Is it just me, or is this years PDC darts one of the best tournaments (so far) ever?


Not just because it's Phil's last outing, but the standard and close games have been great to watch!
