#312778 Up and coming MFME release

Posted by Wizard on 12 December 2017 - 10:53 pm

Just a heads up really, be sure to resave all your old layouts with MFME v5.1 into .fml format as the next version no longer supports the loading of .dat files.

You will always be able to convert them using v5.1

#313525 2017 - Nov / Dec - A Public Apology

Posted by Reg on 26 December 2017 - 07:42 pm

Earlier this year I made an attack on this forum and DADsFME as well.


Part of my complaints was I considered it biased towards a couple of issues that have been done and dusted. I know that a couple of my comments were considered offensive by at least one of the people who tried to do their best, in their words.


Note this is the area that I am talking about here my actions, I am not looking to open up the debate at all.  Take this as you want.


Over the past few weeks I have been getting more and more bothered over some of the remarks I made as the weeks have rolled on.  Yes, it’s only words on the internet but I am not 100% impressed about my behaviour.


During this period, I have had contact with one of the people that I probably pissed off in the thread and that PM chain has been nothing but friendly.


More recently, I have been dealing with another person who I pissed off over on another forum via PM’s.  Again, that PM chain has been nothing but friendly.


These people could have told me to go and f*** myself where the sun does not shine, they did not. There could have been no dialogue at all – I am not sure that I probably deserved any. Either way, the doors had been opened and we’ve spoken – I am not sure that if the roles were reversed I’d have even bothered with me, if I was them.


All I want to do is say thank you very much – you know exactly who you are and I apologise for what I said and insinuated.


The only thing that matters from the wreckage of what has recently happened is our admin here.  I wish him well for 2018 and if this message means anything, consider this…

  • I could have posted this where not main people would have seen, I did not and am publically calling myself out.
  • It maybe only words on the internet, but we are people behind those words – at times, we should hold up a mirror and see if we would like them coming back in our own direction.
  • This is a hobby – we will never capture the old days and it is dying.  This is probably because of our own behaviours and there is a lot of us that hold that torch – let’s try to make 2018 more welcoming for those around.  The people that have recently returned, let’s give them a reason to stay.

That is me done – I’ll not be as soft as shit to you lot like this ever again, but the people will know who I mean when they read this and I hope they accept the apology.

If I am man enough to call things out publically – I am man enough to post regrets and an apology.

Peace out – have a wonderful 2018.

Fixed Reel Offsets

Updated New Alphas

Updated Segs

New Reels/Overlays

Meter/Payout Sounds

Backgrounds Adjusted For Borderless Modes


And here are the first ten in alphabetical order:

#315251 Site misbehaviour

Posted by barcrest junky on 23 January 2018 - 09:10 pm

Over the last couple of weeks we have had some issues with the site, particularly when submitting posts and it taking a while for them to save, and the updating of number of views and replies to a topic.

You will be as pleased to hear as I am that Pete W is going to look into it at the weekend.

Thank you for your patience whilst this matter is resolved and for your ongoing support of the site.

#313108 Star Wars a New Hope DX

Posted by DAD on 19 December 2017 - 09:55 am

Another DX from me from the Star Wars collection, this time its Star Wars a New Hope.  This again was done from a photo, just skewed straight and lamped pretty much as is with very little work spent tidying things up.  It doesn't always work doing this but in this case I think the rough n ready look works quite well.  I don't really like making things ultra sharp by redrawing stuff or using proper fonts every time.  Sometimes its necessary though when things are totally unreadable.  Its nice and big too for those with large screens, but still looks reasonable on my lappy resized to 1600 x 900 using F3.

Huge thanks to Reg whose brilliant classic I used as a base (he's does love his borders) ;), and also to wizard for MFME without which non of us would get the chance to play these great emulations.

Keys are:
F - Take Feature
P - Take Step
S - Play Super Trail
B - Take Bonus
H - Hi
L - Lo
` - Cancel
1, 2 & 3 - Hold/Nudge
C - Collect
K - Change Stake
Space - Start
7 - Insert £20
8 - Insert £10
9 - Insert £5
0 - Insert £1

I hope you enoy it.

Cheers everyone and Merry Christmas :)

Johnnyafc - For also helping me with PM questions, support, for providing me with some super high quality reel photos at request and for sending me a copy of "Homer's Meltdown"'s manual! Additionally, his basic "Homer's Meltdown" layout also helped with figuring things out and mapping out numbers.

#313145 YouTube Emulation Extravaganza (sort of)

Posted by Chopaholic on 19 December 2017 - 08:53 pm

Only two specific emulator videos up so far, although there are some other odds and sods on there if you have a poke about.


I've got quite a few machines in mind I'd like to do though, so more videos should be appearing in the coming days and weeks.


I'm also drafting out some ideas for a 'History of Fruit Machine Emulation' video, although that'll take a bit more work than me just talking shite for 10-20 minutes.


Anyway, the DOND Power Five video went up yesterday, Roller Coaster has just gone up now. I'll add to this thread as I add videos to the channel.


Enjoy! And eat more fruit.


Many thanks to all the folks who make these videos are possible at all, not least Wizard for his amazing emulator, the layout creators, resource gatherers, site hosters and everyone else :)




#305119 MFME for New Designers

Posted by Reg on 17 June 2017 - 06:58 am



I really wasn't going to do this and told vectra666 I would not cross post and gave reasons, then shaun2097 gave a great response so I figured, what the hell, let's cross post this...


...so I am pleased to finally upload a guide to DIF that I've been working on for a little while to try to bring layout designing to those that have never done this before.


For anyone that is slightly interested, please take a look at the download section for the PDF. I will update this as time goes by. Have fun and go and build those layouts...




To access the file you need to be REGISTERED and have confirmed the email as per standard forums these days.


Please do not host the file elsewhere.  It is not much to ask people to download the latest one and more importantly, they can subscribe to the download to get notifications of when it's updated.  I do not give permission for this to be hosted or shared in any form apart from direct download.


The PDF is 30+ pages long of pure MFME information along with a section that teaches you how to build a basic classic layout from scratch.

#282729 R.I.P. Mrs Dachs (Sallyanne)

Posted by dachshund on 16 July 2015 - 08:37 pm

Well today has been a beautiful day, the sun shone and the turn out at the service was amazing as today was Sallyannes (Mrs Dachs) funeral. Sallyanne passed away on the 3rd of july following a cardiac arrest on the 29th of june. Unfortunately Sallyanne never recovered. Sallyannes passion was for cooking (how im not 30 stone with the amount of her top quality home cooked food i ate is beyond me). Sallyanne held a full time cooks job at a local preschool were she also taught basic food hygene. Sallyanne also organised many charity nights in which she raised lots of money for Macmillan. Sallyannes 2nd passion was for our pets, 9 in total ( 6 dogs, 2 rats and a hamster) the minute Sallyanne left for work she was eager to get home for them and curl up on the sofa in a onesie and watch soaps and catch up. We met in a little club in the town i was born on the east coast of Yorkshire. The minute Sallyanne walked in the club i couldnt take my eyes of her. I knew i was batting way above my league but i asked her out and Sallyanne said yes. I am the luckiest man alive. 14 years of laughs, love and amazing food.


                        Love you forever my sweetheart xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx




ps. i hope nobody minds that i have shared this, howerver it really helps me to talk about Sallyanne cos im bloody struggling at the min

#313613 Hokey Cokey Multiplayer DX

Posted by DAD on 28 December 2017 - 02:56 pm

Here we have Hokey Cokey a lovely little Multilayer from Astra Games.  I’ve been waiting to do this for quite some time as you'll know if you've seen the WIP thread.  Not sure why I like this so much, maybe it brings back some nice memories, like winning more on it than Tony aka Compost Corner when we met up one day lol (where is he nowadays?).

I've been having some issues trying to get the game to save with the Top Box and slaves in the correct positions.  Wizard had a look and offered a fix which worked on his machine but unfortunately not mine.  If you have the same issues follow these instructions:

When you load the Top Box, the slaves will load automatically.  Unlink the units by pressing Alt+U.  Hold the shift key down and drag the Top Box to fit neatly on top of the slaves.  You can use the cursor keys for fine adjustment.  When positioned, Press Alt+L to link the units back together.  You can then use the same drag method to re-position the whole machine to suit your screen.

It's set to £25, 30p, 86% and plays a nice game.  A little touch I thought I'd add is on the background of the Top Reels is the actual music to the song Hokey Cokey.  You might need a magnifying glass to read it though.

Many thanks to Reg whose Party Time and Bullion Bars releases helped a long way towards getting this up and running and of course to wizard for his outstanding work in bringing us MFME 6.

Keys?  Sod off you know 'em by now!!

Cheers, hope you enjoy it.
