(14 September 2013 - 04:00 PM) there you go - wasn't too hard was it - and by the way, we aren't ogres here and will always do our best to help any new members - but we do like to be appreciated for taking the time :)
(14 September 2013 - 03:27 PM) ...that aren't spam by the way ;) lol
(14 September 2013 - 03:26 PM) ...five per day until you have made a number of posts within the Fruit Emu portal discussion threads :)
(14 September 2013 - 01:46 PM) Here you go: http://www.fruit-emu...oon-be-closing/
(14 September 2013 - 12:30 PM) Make the most of today on ShoutBox guys.... :)
(06 September 2013 - 04:30 PM) ...I'm still plodding on :)
(04 September 2013 - 10:18 PM) @BJ - I could do with him here then... started making a thing of packing and shifting old rubbish today... I've filled 10 bin liners, and it doesn't look like I've started a thing! very disheartening - I might just bin the lot and start fresh! lol :)
(04 September 2013 - 07:03 PM) well as long as it is showing in the latest releases thread, that's all good... the world ain't going to end, unless we go to war with Syria :p
(02 September 2013 - 02:15 PM) I think you have to have a legitimate Windows (like I have) to run that BJ... which counts quite a few out here :p lol
(02 September 2013 - 05:21 AM) @vectra... RDP offered you a slot to play... not something you play with personally ;)
(28 August 2013 - 10:15 PM) God give me strength… I’ve had my say in that thread -  and about something else also in a section here
(18 August 2013 - 10:04 PM) nah bri mate - I’m on Virgin Media broadband and to be honest that is running like a bag of smashed crabs at present too…
(17 August 2013 - 12:20 AM) @BJ: yes, that I knew, as I mentioned in the Deal or No Deal Emulator thread mate, as you've followed up in it - it was just a scene suppressor, like FME always was meant to be with past coders - yes and that Gary worked at Empire - who through the dummies out the pram!
(16 August 2013 - 09:29 PM) aaahh - that old chestnut - don't get me going matey ;)
(16 August 2013 - 02:53 PM) You might have mystery stalkers mate... incognito following ;) lol
(16 August 2013 - 08:51 AM) @BJ... battle stations - it's a Red Alert! ;) lol
(14 August 2013 - 03:13 PM) I've just had someone come to my backdoor and ask if I'd like to join the new karate club... he didn't know where to put his face when my neighbour explained my circumstances - poor bugger :) lol
(07 August 2013 - 07:02 PM) I don't 
(04 August 2013 - 05:54 PM) @brownbag: so when the dentist says to you "you'll just feel a little prick" he isn't referring to the novacane injection then... ;)
(21 July 2013 - 10:00 AM) I'm going to stand naked outside when the first drops fall - they're used to it from me round my end - I just blame me conditions!!  :bigeyes19:  :bigeyes19:
(20 July 2013 - 04:10 PM) My goodness... three mods on together!! :p
(19 July 2013 - 08:44 PM) you are right mate... but sentimentality can be put on hold today - its your day :)
(19 July 2013 - 08:40 PM) well you have - and you enjoy it :)
(19 July 2013 - 08:38 PM) christ i sound like yoda there dont i - :)
(19 July 2013 - 08:37 PM) hi ric mate - your birthday is  - congrats matey :)
(17 July 2013 - 04:00 PM) I've got one of those USB plugin fans that go underneath your laptop for £1 from Poundworld... you'll find that a good investment as it does the job on mine :)
(17 July 2013 - 03:00 AM) Top Dog is on Fruit Emu :)
(17 July 2013 - 03:00 AM) http://www.fruit-emu...op-dog-1152-dx/
(16 July 2013 - 09:04 PM) night BJ mate - hope you can get off to land of nod in this heat - roll on winter is all I can say :)
(16 July 2013 - 08:12 PM) ...don't ask how to install it - fathom that, otherwise I'll bring the toilet paper into the shout box  ;)
(16 July 2013 - 08:11 PM) http://www.fruit-emu...-simpsons-roms/
(16 July 2013 - 05:29 AM) Bad news... it makes me so ill - great if you love good weather - very bad if you don't (like I do) lol ;)
(15 July 2013 - 05:52 PM) ...toilet paper anyone - just in case some people needs their arses wiping for them :p
(15 July 2013 - 02:28 PM) I've got my desk fan blowing on the back of my Apple iMac - keeps it lovely and cool... in fact, I've never heard the fan kick in on it since I've had it :)
(14 July 2013 - 02:56 PM) Ady the leader? - then we must follow him! :p
(14 July 2013 - 01:52 PM) Then this: @ doggerino : (14 July 2013 - 10:28 AM) can u get a dond rom?
(14 July 2013 - 01:51 PM) This: @ doggerino : (13 July 2013 - 10:17 PM) can you get party time or bulion bars rom?
(14 July 2013 - 01:50 PM) I think dogerino knows the scene a little more than he is letting on... ;)
(11 July 2013 - 05:53 PM) it's looking really decent jayz... big respect to you mate for attempting a classic - they are so much harder to do than any DX  -  so hats off to ya! :)
(11 July 2013 - 10:51 AM) On the left you'll notice two sections... MPU5 and Scorpion 4 - just download the classics from either section on whatever takes your fancy :)
(11 July 2013 - 10:43 AM) MFME 9.4 or 10.1 - click this link and download only the 'classic' layouts if you don't prefer all the candy graphics f the DX - I love playing the classics more than DX myself on some, because it doesn't overload your computer... Here's the link: http://www.fruit-emu...ory/42-mfme-9x/
(11 July 2013 - 10:41 AM) @wook... if you want to use me
(10 July 2013 - 09:38 PM) MFME 3.2 does 'squeeze' the whole layout up in the Preferences panel if the checkbox is ticked, providing the layout is playable in MFME 3.2... which as you've said vectra that Italian Job is now runnable for you in it - so therefore even 1600 DX layout will fit to resolution if the checkbox is ticked :)
(10 July 2013 - 05:39 PM) @brownbag... get cracking on it then
(30 June 2013 - 10:39 PM) ;)
(30 June 2013 - 10:00 PM) @brownbag - its big enough to see - it has a whole section to itself - it is for FME in MAME when it is released and updates for it
(30 June 2013 - 09:59 PM) cheers nails mate :)
(28 June 2013 - 01:36 PM) The English language isn't supported in the UK!! - according to a Microsoft moderator for people trying to upgrade their Windows 8 operating system to the new Preview Windows 8.1- getaway!!
(26 June 2013 - 07:32 PM) Hope you're feeling a little better Neil mate :)
(26 June 2013 - 02:13 PM) I think it is disgusting how companies treat their employees... I do really - chin up mate :)
(26 June 2013 - 11:30 AM) Good luck Ian mate... I hope all goes well for you bud :)
(24 June 2013 - 10:02 PM) nite mate :)
(24 June 2013 - 09:34 PM) @BJ & nails... check your PM boxes guys :)
(24 June 2013 - 07:13 PM) @BJ - I've only seen him twice since I have been a Moderator here... @RDP - that's about right mate ;)
(24 June 2013 - 07:11 PM) WTF - organism - bleeding autocorrect!! :p
(24 June 2013 - 07:10 PM) well if I could have an organism every time I had a wee, I would be walking around a lot more shakier than I do now BJ mate... :D
(24 June 2013 - 07:07 PM) don't worry RDP mate... I'm on water tablets ;)
(24 June 2013 - 07:05 PM) @BJ... you'll need a supply of Andrex until tomorrow then matey... although I must admit, it's got my juices flowing too (maybe I'll need the Andrex too!! :p)
(24 June 2013 - 07:03 PM) :)
(24 June 2013 - 07:01 PM) ...oh dear - Ady isn't pissed - how strange!! :p lol x
(24 June 2013 - 06:53 PM) I have sent a PM to Ady and duplu for your request nails mate :)
(24 June 2013 - 06:48 PM) @nails... admin only can do that - I'm sure Ady will start a section along with the Amber project in the Emulators section when he reads this :)
(24 June 2013 - 05:18 PM) Norton eh... takes up half your PC processes and memory just to load then grinds it to a halt when running a simple virus scan - and that is for those on top spec PCs... no thank you very much - good to see you think the same BJ mate! ;)
(24 June 2013 - 04:07 PM) ...and that helps people visiting with questions about FME because?
(24 June 2013 - 08:44 AM) Is it worth paying, or using a full Windows XP license key onto a virtual machine, just to run MFME? You get graphic issues etc, plus, apart from microsoft virtual PC, you still get the crap sound system from the newer Windows using their sound card has a host.
(23 June 2013 - 06:40 PM) =EFI sorry I am on mobile - unfortunately this doesn't support backward boot to Windows XP
(23 June 2013 - 06:37 PM) No because the newer Windows has updated BIOS systems with a different kind of boot manager (EGI
(23 June 2013 - 04:11 PM) @mainjon... also, if you're on a laptop using Vista, Windows 7 or Windows 8, you won't be able to adjust the screen resolution on the other MFME emulators - in Windows XP you could untick the checkbox that hid non compatible resolutions and scroll your screen to run full size DX layouts... that just isn't possible in the newer Windows :)
(22 June 2013 - 08:26 AM) @IHartwell... not everything is at it appears to be mate - please don't believe all that you here ;)
(22 June 2013 - 01:06 AM) I'm getting really fed up of this Shoutbox being used again bemoaning all and sundry - and the few of you all seem to be making it out to be one-sided... remember what was said a few months ago about this box - it can easily go! Use the Chat Box if you want to bemoan about the woes of those of us you think are ruining the site - but not on an open  public Shoutbox, or it will be taken down!!  :realmad:
(21 June 2013 - 09:25 PM) @brownbag... I wonder why he does sometimes don't you - I know how Ady feels on occasions to be like it!
(18 June 2013 - 03:04 PM) @Ian - good luck mate... I hope you've succeeded :)
(17 June 2013 - 05:13 PM) good luck mate :)
(17 June 2013 - 08:45 AM) Arrowroot this morning for me... loved those since I was a nipper :)
(16 June 2013 - 02:04 PM) @Ady... :p lol x
(15 June 2013 - 09:29 AM) I used to love Abbey Crunch biscuits.... oh how I do miss those! :(
(14 June 2013 - 12:04 AM) Nice to see Fruit Emu members helping each other... keep it up because that's what we're all about in the long run :)
(12 June 2013 - 09:08 AM) ...but very tasty - you've made me hungry now Nails mate ;)
(10 June 2013 - 06:38 AM) @vectra - your quote: @ vectra666 : (09 June 2013 - 07:45 PM) evening ladies wonder what tonight's gonna bring lol - well we have had relatively peace these past few days, so why you've had to come in SB and say that comment because dachs has come back speaks volumes to me
(08 June 2013 - 04:11 PM) @daz... there you go you see - I don't play those modern crap games ;)
(08 June 2013 - 03:06 PM) @daz... I'm sorry then lad, but I have listed the common known errors that could occur - you're just going to have to accept the fact that layout will not work in the emulator you're using :)
(08 June 2013 - 01:00 PM) Have you ticked the 'Door Open' checkbox at the top left of the emulator settings?
(08 June 2013 - 10:27 AM) don't insert any coins until you ve pressed Start button though :)
(08 June 2013 - 10:26 AM) @daz... I believe you just press the Start button (Spacebar) on game and credit should be instantly given.
(06 June 2013 - 04:38 PM) @Ady... so pleased - it's been a long tunnel mate :) x
(05 June 2013 - 10:14 PM) oh I know sometimes mate... I just tend to forget - which makes it much simpler ;)
(05 June 2013 - 09:09 PM) your joke wasn't that bad RDP mate ;)
(05 June 2013 - 01:07 PM) and give you bleeding heartburn too - but that is the sacrifice I suppose mate... they're actually lovely topped with whipped cream and a dollop of raspberry jam too - my favourite way of eating 'em! :)
(05 June 2013 - 01:01 AM) ginger nuts are my favourite - biscuits that is ;)
(04 June 2013 - 10:49 PM) @vectra... yes it's strange how members keep leaving us isn't it:  when the next 3,000+ go - we'll turn the lights out ;)
(02 June 2013 - 07:50 PM) @vectra... done - but patience is a virtue you know mate ;)
(29 May 2013 - 05:23 PM) I only remember the words 'soixante neuf' some some uncanny reason! :p
(29 May 2013 - 05:00 PM) So much for Gay Paris (pronounced in French)... aren't they hypocrites! ;)
(27 May 2013 - 05:49 PM) @bencrest... you can polish a turd as much as you want lad - it's still a lump of shit at the end of the day that blocked it... ;) lol
(26 May 2013 - 08:50 PM) Plenty of amusements there to choose from Corel - I mainly played the fruities in Chapel St Leonards though a that is where my Mam and stepdad lived and caravanned for over 30 years :)
(26 May 2013 - 03:02 PM) Jeckyll and Hyde sping to mind - along with some other members names best forgotten ;)
(26 May 2013 - 02:02 PM) @brownbag... we didn't forget - we just didn't notice ;)
(26 May 2013 - 10:34 AM) That T20 is the kind of cricket I could go and see Ady mate - all over in one day and not dragged out... they play heart and soul at scoring runs so don't play so 'leisurely' as they do in test matches :) x
(25 May 2013 - 07:50 PM) I know the prostitutes legs in our area wouldn't have been! :p
(25 May 2013 - 04:11 PM) makes up for yesterday... it was enough to freeze the gonads off you! ;)
(24 May 2013 - 06:48 PM) @Ady... mate that is what I have done too - hardly put on throughout winter at all - you know I'd need a fan in an igloo - but summertime comes and I'm right nesh... unbelievable! ;)
(23 May 2013 - 04:02 PM) Simple... buy it!
(22 May 2013 - 11:18 AM) @nick... I think that is true of anywhere now with the 'chavs' mate - they put me in mind of vampires hanging around a blood donor session! ;)
(21 May 2013 - 05:14 PM) @brownbag... you seem to want to know enough about everyone else though ;)
(18 May 2013 - 05:41 PM) hi kirsten... welcome to Fruit Emu - enjoy your stay with us :)
(16 May 2013 - 07:38 AM) Back home tomorrow... back to reality ;)
(14 May 2013 - 05:07 PM) Hi all... ET just calling second home ;)
(05 May 2013 - 04:04 PM) @dachsund... I hope you had mint sauce and Yorkies with that :)
(05 May 2013 - 01:52 AM) @posh4eva,,, I hope you're OK mate :)
(03 May 2013 - 12:04 PM) no pilky... end of
(02 May 2013 - 03:25 AM) Happy birthday @Barcrest Junky - enjoy your day bud! :)
(28 April 2013 - 09:07 PM) @kimjamish... http://www.fruit-emu...fruit-machines/ - post a thread - you'll get better responses from most members with real fruit machines there :)
(28 April 2013 - 05:50 PM) @liverpool... it is for people with the new resolution monitors mate - some newer layouts are now being released by some layout creators in the newer HD resolutions :)
(27 April 2013 - 09:48 AM) Well done DAD mate... here's to the next decade I hope! ;)
(25 April 2013 - 06:27 PM) @BJ... I think we did that one before at DAD's - weren't I streaky?! :p
(25 April 2013 - 02:42 PM) @jim... past is easy at the moment - now ask me 5 minutes ago - in fact ask me if I even knew I had posted that! ;) lol
(25 April 2013 - 09:10 AM) FME actually started on MSN live chat boards in 2001... it is more than 12 years old - it is only Fruit Emu that is 10 years old... Mecca, Fruit Forums are even older than Fruit Emu - the main download site for all FME at the beginning used to be called MPU World, before Fruit Emu came along :)
(22 April 2013 - 06:34 AM) ...(ni) in my first part though, let duplu come home from holiday and then hopefully all can be resolved :)
(22 April 2013 - 06:33 AM) I think we have all just got to try and sit tight, let duplu have the remainder of his holiday in peace and when he gets back he can have a complete look at the site and try and work out what is going off for access for you guys - I have got to let you in a secret too, I had trouble yesterday trying to access the site, using my mobile data (I am on the 3 network) the site just hung forever... as ni
(19 April 2013 - 07:42 PM) are = aren't - sorry misspelled that :)
(19 April 2013 - 07:42 PM) well... at least his 'Two Little Boys' won't haunt him - the allegations are against minors, only one female - I too hope he's innocent of all allegations :)
(17 April 2013 - 06:53 AM) ...and in the ether he's staying too! :)
(15 April 2013 - 08:10 AM) @brownbag... what good would money be for you when you have donated your organs? To do so you've got to be dead and even if you weren't you certainly would be with how many organs you wish to donate for cash! - as for blood donor... I was one for 25 years and donated over 50+ pints in my time... I never dreamed of or even thought of wanting money for it - I helped saved life - that was more than enough payment for me :)
(13 April 2013 - 08:49 PM) Looking forward to the upgrade Ric mate… I got a good deal with 3 when I got my iPhone 5 - I have been with them 8 years - only pay £22 per month and get 2000 minutes, 5000 texts, unlimited mobile data, and can transfer through iDevice to my Mac computer, 100 picture texts and unlimited calls to other 3 callers… Which most of my family is on - well happy :)
(13 April 2013 - 08:39 PM) no mate… I will use my mobile data and link it to the MacBook through iPhone - I have unlimited data anyway, and I am going onto 4G soon with the ‘3’ network… but 3G is quite fast too here in my district - it is faster than my download speeds used to be when I was on Sky Broadband! :)
(13 April 2013 - 08:29 PM) @RDP - thanks mate… it’s needed - and I can take my iPhone and MacBook so can still access FME - albeit I shall be trying to have a rest, so won’t be as often - I will update my Alzheimer’s thread with daily updates - just to bore you all! :p lol
(13 April 2013 - 08:07 PM) if you’re running MFME mate, then the old sound issues will come into play… Vista, Windows 7 and Windows 8, using the new digital sound system distorts some tech sounds and layouts… thats why I have always kept my old Windows XP for playing MFME - and as I have said, Wizard won’t be releasing anymore, so we have got to make do with what we have - hope with Guitar and Project Amber - he’s gradually getting there with it :)
(13 April 2013 - 07:59 PM) hi gaz… :)
(10 April 2013 - 02:07 PM) I got on fine yesterday on both my computers and devices... duplu is on holiday at present and any niggles, if any. will be sorted when he returns :)
(02 April 2013 - 02:12 PM) Great news samson mate... I am so proud and pleased for you :)
(31 March 2013 - 02:00 PM) Happy Holidays Samson - and everyone at Fruit Emu land! :)
(31 March 2013 - 06:05 AM) Just got my mum and stepdad in respite care for a few weeks... and hopefully I shall be getting mine started a couple of weeks after Easter so a little rest for me looks in the making - that'll be heaven! - no Easter egg for me though! - happy holidays all :)
(30 March 2013 - 07:03 PM) Apart from today, I haven't had any problems accessing the site through my computers or iDevices on any browser - have you tried clearing all your caches vectra on all your browsers, including cookies :)
(30 March 2013 - 02:28 PM) @crazybar... Fruit Emu was down for me too for a few hours :)
(23 March 2013 - 06:17 PM) I've never really liked lamb to be honest - you can tell I'm not Welsh!... sorry my fellow Cymru friends... :p
(23 March 2013 - 05:14 PM) @ady - I think 'dogs with bones' comes to mind mate... ;)
(22 March 2013 - 04:37 AM) Well that's another night with my legs and arms doing the conga keeping me awake!
(20 March 2013 - 07:24 AM) @BJ... I don't know what an ithngy is - but if you're sat on it... it must be a dump! ;)
(19 March 2013 - 10:25 PM) @RDP - I would much sooner end up in the Abyss than banned - pilky's own doing ;)
(19 March 2013 - 10:16 PM) @BJ... I don't have permission either - I will have a word with duplu in the Moderation section :)
(18 March 2013 - 09:57 PM) @vectra... done for you :)
(17 March 2013 - 03:55 PM) @RDP - without a doubt it is ;)
(12 March 2013 - 07:20 PM) @corel... I am automatically being given it with 3 Network because I have an iPhone 5 contract with them - hopefully 3 will lead the way, they haven't let me down yet :)
(12 March 2013 - 05:34 PM) @paul300... if you're not happy here?! ;)
(11 March 2013 - 11:55 AM) I'm sat looking out my window... the sun blinding my eyes - but in the middle of a blizzard at the same time - work that out... crazy weather! ;)
(09 March 2013 - 05:17 PM) @illusions... hi mate - hope you're settling into FME well :)
(08 March 2013 - 07:06 AM) Glad your in the right place to be now Ady mate :) x
(07 March 2013 - 11:23 PM) @cashalarm - because you're a new member your threads, posts and downloads will be moderated... you need to post a few times before downloading becomes active and not just spam etc mate - relevant posts, because they will have to be apporved by us before they will be active... after this, you will have same access to downloads as all members :)
(28 February 2013 - 11:14 PM) @fruitman… got to agree Steve mate - Pinball HD is magnificent on both iPhone and iPad to play! :)
(28 February 2013 - 06:53 PM) I love that app! ;) lol
(23 February 2013 - 12:29 PM) ...and believe us - there were some ;)
(21 February 2013 - 09:05 AM) @chasnbons... just a normal day in 'Paradise' here mate... according to good 'ol Phil - you too of course! ;) lol
(21 February 2013 - 08:22 AM) @vectra... I don't think Ady has started on you - you and RDP stated it strange that some of your PMs were missing here and asked for clarity... we have just responded, and actually reading back over the ShoutBox, it does seem to suggest that both you and RDP suspect that your PM accounts have been manipulated by someone other than yourselves - as I have said that isn't and duplu has confirmed, can't be the case
(20 February 2013 - 08:19 PM) No moderators or admin can access your PMs as far as I know, or would we want to… you are password protected for those particular details in your account here - perhaps duplu will be able to advise more, but accessing PMs is something none of us here would ever want to do
(20 February 2013 - 05:53 PM) chin up mate - it’ll all be worth it in the end bud :) x
(15 February 2013 - 09:13 PM) "Online" fruit machines cannot be changed with the MFME emulator
(07 February 2013 - 11:09 AM) Everything is working fine on my iPhone and iPad mobile devices vectra mate... I still think duplu is adding things to the sections over time
(06 February 2013 - 06:31 PM) That is the MPS (?) version mate... not the Electrocoin rom :)
(06 February 2013 - 05:53 PM) There is this release by DAD though mate: http://www.dadsfme.c...hp?topic=1511.0
(06 February 2013 - 05:51 PM) @richy... there isn't an emulator in the public domain will run Bar-X by Electrocoin tech... we have all been waiting in a dream for the likes of Bar-X, Pyramid etc to run, but Giutar won't do it because of 'legal' issues - Wizard may have created the emulator to run it, but it is probably a private build and isn't available to public FME members - yet! ;)
(06 February 2013 - 10:15 AM) Two lucky men there Ady mate... they must've known the law though - no excuses
(05 February 2013 - 10:12 AM) @brownbag... If you go into the New Releases section and click the 'Follow this...' Whatever section you ate in, you will receive an email every time a new thread is started, which in that section will be a new layout release - so you can get email notifications the instant someone starts a new thread there mate :)
(03 February 2013 - 08:22 PM) @duplu... thanks for restoring the Chat link mate. :)
(03 February 2013 - 04:56 PM) Could you make that a permanent link please duplu in the new update mate... we have been trying to encourage more 'chat' in the Chat section - thanks :)
(02 February 2013 - 11:03 PM) no problems vectra - night mate
(02 February 2013 - 10:12 PM) yes - agin we are turning this into a front page war - i amoff to chat with DAD - we'll carry it on there - if you dare ;) lol
(02 February 2013 - 10:11 PM) @vectra - what do you mean if a ban was imposed - a ban can from SB can be made by mods/admin, but is cleared with all other staff so as we all know the reason - it isn' something we would do because we fancied it mate
(02 February 2013 - 10:04 PM) after who and what was stating about your releases vectra?
(02 February 2013 - 10:02 PM) oh no, if we break the rules too (mods only I believe here) we are obligated too - there isn't rules for them and rules for us, not that I am aware of - do you know different Toddy mate? :p
(02 February 2013 - 09:58 PM) @RDP - why be like that mate? Do you want the ikes of pilky being abusive, nasty rude and downright insulting to us all on SB - so everyone can see it? I know I don't, and the vast majority of FE members don't either... I have said that a friendly 'hello' and the like will always be acceptable - it just cannot carry on like it was can it?
(02 February 2013 - 09:54 PM) I agree, and that is why SB shouldn't be used for such things really is it? It is hardly welcoming for any new FME enthusiasts to see when we are at war on the Front Page, so to speak ;)
(02 February 2013 - 09:52 PM) That is why it has been on the Welcome screen of Fruit Emu - to help anyone with FME problems - if they 'bugger' off after we have helped them it is their loss, but at least we will have done what the SB is for :)
(02 February 2013 - 09:50 PM) @vectra - the SB is for everyone... it isn't inclusive to mods/noobies - I never ever said that... I said it is here to help FME enthusiasts (who will probably be members here anyway) with any problems - and the hello from us all - what is the problem with that?
(02 February 2013 - 09:47 PM) @vectra - that can only be a good thing after these past few weeks then... as I say there is the Chat and PM services - ShoutBox can and should always be used of course - but not like it has been - it isn't fair to the vast majority of members who come here looking for help
(02 February 2013 - 09:44 PM) @all - no the SB will be what it was set up to be from now on - a welcome centre to help FME enthusiats with problems and a friendly hello - as Ady and I said earlier in here, there is a Chat section on the forums for social interacting if you fancy that :)
(02 February 2013 - 08:14 PM) crikey - you haven't become part of the 'inner circle' have you Tommy mate? ;)
(02 February 2013 - 07:22 PM) Peace and harmony - lovely to see here again - as it always should be :)
(02 February 2013 - 06:24 PM) One of his better decisions... let the SB move on now - hopefully with what it is here for - a helpful and friendly place for FME enthusiasts needing help - we have a chat room section for social interaction. :)
(02 February 2013 - 06:19 PM) @Ady - good call... and as far as I am concerned his last ever shout
(02 February 2013 - 05:12 PM) Actually Ady mate I said that quote by brownbag, that but typed in the wrong way of saying what I wanted to say - sorry about that and how it has been interpreted... I meant to say how members don't realise that resource gathering etc counts just the same way and how ungrateful some people can be with it. I was so angry at the time of putting it though my words came out wrong - I apologise for that... it isn't any direct quote from you at all :)
(02 February 2013 - 04:10 AM) Pilky this is my final comment on this... you won't be seeing a layout from me OK not now not ever - bang on all you want - now I suggest you let it drop mate... this is the third and final time I will ask it
(01 February 2013 - 11:22 PM) @pilky.... mate you are really pushing it on here tonight - you've been in aggressive mood throughout SB chat trying to cause trouble among members - you're on your last warning here mate from admin and staff - remember that and perhaps be a good one to call it a night on SB tonight before the inevitable will happen - its you to you pilky
(01 February 2013 - 10:15 PM) @pilky... why are you still banging on mate? You really aren't doing yourself any favours in the long run are you. I am not and will not do a release because I couldn't be able to do it... that you know because I have told you before in a PM so why bring it up in here... Ady has released layouts before but was treated bad by a few people and said he wasn't doing anymore - but whatever business it is of yours I don't know. I am not happy about the fact of you asking about doing a release when it is beyond my capabilities to do and you know that... I will say to you now as a friendly warning - don't start or stay on this course pilky please!
(26 January 2013 - 09:57 AM) ...the error message also came up in red background but there was no error code mate - just a message about failed upload
(26 January 2013 - 09:54 AM) @duplu... it just kept saying 'failed to upload your content' mate - I tried it twice too. It could've been my end with Virgin Media. I will try again later mate thanks (although I have forgotten now what the hell I was going to upload! ;)) lol
(25 January 2013 - 11:13 PM) duplu - I have just tried to upload 3 553kb bmp and a png image, all have failed mate :)
(18 January 2013 - 01:12 PM) @chasnbons... how are you anyway matey? :)
(18 January 2013 - 01:09 PM) Enough of the innuendo chas... it just starting here in Kirkby! ;)
(16 January 2013 - 12:11 AM) @RDP - only because it is a new forum it has been released on buddy ;)
(12 January 2013 - 05:57 PM) OK mate no probs :)
(12 January 2013 - 05:55 PM) @boulderdash... what do you mean mate - you obviously need a valid layout to play, with the correct ROMS - to be honest the dummy guide is the easiest way of explaining it all :)
(11 January 2013 - 12:14 AM) happy new year £6IT... I hope it is great for you and yours mate :)
(06 January 2013 - 11:19 PM) night samson mate :)
(06 January 2013 - 10:47 PM) I agree with you there samson mate - I did! ;)
(06 January 2013 - 10:43 PM) I don't watch films now... I forget what the plot is about halfway through - the same with a book now too - I used to love reading... Now, I read the first few pages, and then have to go back to the beginning to remember what it is about! ;) lol
(06 January 2013 - 10:37 PM) probably because it has made over $1billion in the box office! ;) lol
(06 January 2013 - 10:37 PM) I think on BBC News Web site, they are mentioning that it will be the first time a Bond film may be put up for a main OSCAR nomination - instead of technical support :)
(06 January 2013 - 10:36 PM) Hi Todd mate :) 
(06 January 2013 - 10:33 PM) Don't worry pilky I haven't - but I certainly would if I thought they were all his own work, and they were good enough mate
(06 January 2013 - 10:31 PM) yes - so have other layout creators in the past - this issue isn't about that pilky mate - I thought you were aware of that... This is partly about how vectra wants to please just certain members with laptops, by copying and pasting every layout, but expect everyone to be thankful - that can't happen at all mate - I thought you knew that
(06 January 2013 - 10:27 PM) what does that link prove pilky? I think Tommy has earned his status throughout the years mate... It isn't a matter of just using other peoples' work is it - there is much more to FME than just that - and that is the point we have trying to be putting across to vectra mate - it takes time
(06 January 2013 - 09:53 PM) I'm off too - having a chinky - night all :)
(06 January 2013 - 09:47 PM) samson... I can even remember telling you at the beginning - and that is saying something, me remembering! :p lol
(06 January 2013 - 09:43 PM) well I can't say no more vectra if that is how you feel mate - I have tried to give you a personal response - from my viewpoint, not Fruit Emu's - but if you think that giving in at the slightest remark will help then go for it - but if you genuinely do love FME - then this should be the kick up the bum you might have needed - I'm sorry it hasn't been mate
(06 January 2013 - 09:34 PM) But why vectra mate? You have got to accept criticism mate if you want to succeed as a layout creator for FME - ask all the top designers for FME - they all started with criticism mate - it is what has spurred them to be great dxers  - you just got to stop the mass producing to please the few mate - FME is about all members, and to be honest, what we want in FME is quality looking dxes that we can play, and say "I enjoyed playing that, I will play that again" - laptops are great mate - but FME isn't just about laptops, and shrinking another 1280 layout down to size 
(06 January 2013 - 09:29 PM) and that is what it should all be about samson mate at the end of the day - the love of FME - nothing more - it is all I have been into FME for for the last 12 years :)
(06 January 2013 - 09:28 PM) night Ady mate :)
(06 January 2013 - 09:24 PM) <p>@samson - you are so correct mate - I haven't kids - but my family, and friends matter - and I have made plenty of friends here in FME land - you included :)</p>
(06 January 2013 - 09:20 PM) I am all for that - but to be honest vectra mate, I think you have given encouragement to some of this - you have said it is friendly banter, but it isn't at the end of the day mate, because it is members showing ill-will in a way that is a dig at the staff here - that isn't fair mate - we have every member's welfare at stake, we can't just do it for the select few - the colour status was mentioned by you in quite a few threads - you have encouraged support for this - but at the end of the day, I would like to see go green, truly, but it has to be merited with proven layouts mate 
(06 January 2013 - 09:15 PM) @vectra... well that is cool then mate, so maybe you could ask then for people to support you in that, and not encourage the colour banter that I saw here earlier? I hope that this status issue doesn't become too much of an issue for members - it isn't for the staff here. But back to the layouts mate - I want you to succeed at it, and there is plenty of opportunity to do so, but you have to be resourceful in FME - you can't expect it all to be handed to you - most layout creators, I know will tell you this :)
(06 January 2013 - 09:12 PM) Yes I am not doing too badly - we got to be ain't we mate? :) lol
(06 January 2013 - 09:10 PM) Hi samson mate - you OK buddy? :)
(06 January 2013 - 09:07 PM) But vectra mate - you would earn much more massive respect if you tried to stop mass-producing in a rush to earn your status... because if, and when the quality, much more than the quantity improves, the status will come... Just learn to take more time mate, try and look for some resources, if you want to be a dxer that is what they have all had to do, especially at the beginning of FME, and their are a lot more techs available now - and make sure that your input is yours, and yours alone - then, mate you will see that Fruit Emu does, and always has, supported its layout creators
(06 January 2013 - 09:00 PM) You see there vectra mate - 12/36 hours to release a layout... Some layout creators take weeks, months even to release their layout - they are beautiful mate - they aren't in a rush to earn a 'status' - they are in it for FME and the love of it - you got to understand that in FME land - we aren't bothered about quantity - its the quality that matters! :)
(06 January 2013 - 08:56 PM) I am not asking you to do that vectra mate - give me some credit please, I have been in FME long enough to know that... What I meant was that resizing layouts and resourcing older DX material and resources isn't exactly passing it off as starting your own work, that is all. I know FME is going through a dry patch at the minute
(06 January 2013 - 08:46 PM) No vectra Fruit Emu isn't trying to take it away from you... we just want you to resource all your own ROMS mate, do your layouts from scratch with original materials and release from your own perspective... not rely on artwork that has already been done and sourced and rescaled. Most original layout creators had to do this... there are still plenty out there to do, from scratch, if you l DXing and want to help FME so much
(06 January 2013 - 08:14 PM) I'm 'green' over at the Mecca... any member paying a donation this year can be too... :)
(06 January 2013 - 03:16 PM) Right I am off now guys... going to watch my local town, Mansfield.... thrash Liverpool! :p laters all... :)
(06 January 2013 - 03:10 PM) Yes that's right vectra. You can sign in anonymously, but if you post or shout, your member name is shown and made public :)
(06 January 2013 - 03:08 PM) Boring to be honest pilky mate... I wouldn't fancy or certainly entertain tracking all members, their PMs, their online status etc - much better things to do than that mate :)
(06 January 2013 - 03:05 PM) Its a personal choice though vectra mate... almost forums have the anonymous choice when signed in... however, if they post or Shout, they are shown as their members name, so there is nothing really hiding in that sense mate - it is up to the individual whether they participate or not
(06 January 2013 - 03:00 PM) We don't see anyone's PMs mate... They are personal to each member and cannot nor should not be accessed... We also cannot see anon or guests either... if they have privacy on, we cannot even see their IP address either :)
(06 January 2013 - 02:58 PM) Whats up
(06 January 2013 - 02:56 PM) Hi pilky mate
(05 January 2013 - 09:39 PM) I've also locked it too :)
(02 January 2013 - 09:07 PM) For the New Year guys... thanks! :) http://www.fruit-emu...tions-for-2013/
(01 January 2013 - 11:27 PM) @ady - goodnight mate - take care :) x
(01 January 2013 - 11:25 PM) I don't recall you being abusive tonight on SB - you were just defending your corner mate, and nothing was abusive in it as far as I can see :)
(01 January 2013 - 11:22 PM) @jamesy - mate, if Horlicks can get you soundly to sleep, you certainly don't need Zopiclone - and I hope you never do :)
(01 January 2013 - 11:20 PM) @fruitman - as it always should be mate - I know it is New Year's Day but there is a difference between opinion and downright abuse - I guess certain members just didn't know when to draw the line 
(01 January 2013 - 11:15 PM) @jamesy4 - Zopiclone does the trick a lot better though mate ;) lol
(01 January 2013 - 11:14 PM) i've just had one - and got bleeding heartburn in the process! repeating more than the BBC it is :p
(01 January 2013 - 11:13 PM) @fruitman - I'll get you your pipe and slippers then mate lol
(01 January 2013 - 11:11 PM) its nice and cosy now ain't it - Horlicks anyone? ;)
(01 January 2013 - 10:37 PM) I think the effort you put into those sims Steve are mind boggling mate - I have the two, which I have got to sort yet - and personally would sooner play them than the emulators - you do a sterling job mate - well done :)
(01 January 2013 - 09:04 PM) @vectra "@Daryl  what is the Full reason explain in pm,s not on here please" - that's a bit rich mate, when you are publicly on about on here tonight, and throughout yesterday, and the day before and in posts 
(01 January 2013 - 08:59 PM) "fruitman ...with envy, by any chance? ;)
(01 January 2013 - 08:56 PM) to be honest I really dont see why any of this should matter anyway, because even vectra himself said he didn't mind what colour he was
(01 January 2013 - 08:53 PM) <p>hi RDP - happy new year mate :)</p>
(01 January 2013 - 08:51 PM) <p>@vectra - green isn't a promotion though mate - it is just another member status&hellip; and you know that isn't the full reason to all this anyway mate</p>
(01 January 2013 - 08:47 PM) <p>@vectra - why is the 'colour' so important to you mate? You are a member here like all of us are - colour shouldn't matter at all</p>
(01 January 2013 - 08:44 PM) <p>I've had turkey dinners, turkey soup, turkey sandwiches - and best of it is we have been invited out today and family did 'turkey' curry&hellip; I'll be bleeding clucking by the end of the week! :p</p>
(01 January 2013 - 08:42 PM) <p>@ady - I'm glad you've mentioned GAOTD - I have downloaded that but haven't installed it yet&hellip; Will do it soon before I forget! :p</p>
(01 January 2013 - 08:40 PM) Anyway - who is fed up of the turkey already? ;)
(01 January 2013 - 08:40 PM) @james bye mate 
(01 January 2013 - 08:36 PM) I used to love that programme in the 70s :)
(01 January 2013 - 08:35 PM) its a multi-coloured swap shop on here tonight ain't it!! :p
(01 January 2013 - 08:34 PM) @ady - I don't think it could be any worse than 2012 for some of us mate  could it mate - but we smile and get on with it don't we bud - we have to :)
(01 January 2013 - 08:30 PM) anyway its New Year's Day - let's all have fun - happy new year all :)
(01 January 2013 - 08:26 PM) I have never made out that I can - but neither can vectra in all honesty really mate - because most layout creators do everything for him anyway, all he does is upload it and add a few lamps - and anyway pilky we weren't on about me mate - I haven't any issues at all :)
(01 January 2013 - 08:20 PM) @pilky… Vectras layouts may be alright for you and for some others too… But there are also members who don't like to see copy & pasted releases from others work used as their own, and also there are other layout creators who have been doing it for years and haven't ever banged on about what 'colour' stays they are mate - he is still a member here, and he has got to, in my opinion - earn the right to become an official layout creator… Most of vectra's work is done by other members for him anyway mate 
(01 January 2013 - 06:52 PM) it was explained by Ady and me on ShoutBox last night to vectra why he has changed back to colour status - it is a long issue pilky mate… I know from earlier you have heard his version ;)
(01 January 2013 - 06:46 PM) Yes mate it hasn't been too bad… Just took my mum and stepdad back home 
(01 January 2013 - 06:42 PM) happy new year pilky mate :)
(01 January 2013 - 12:09 AM) @all - not stopping on - got family - but happy new year guys - enjoy and be happy! :)
(31 December 2012 - 11:03 PM) going to put mother to bed soon - so see you all 'next year'… Happy New Year all! :) x
(31 December 2012 - 11:02 PM) @RDP - you too mate… Enjoy yourself :)
(31 December 2012 - 11:00 PM) @samson - happy new year mate :)
(31 December 2012 - 10:57 PM) @vectra… It was discussed by Ady and staff quite a bit before you mentioned it in his layout thread - especially when we noticed that you had changed colour, but Andy1 hadn't - and also because Andy1 has never mentioned anything about colour status - he was happy as he was and it was a shock to him when we made him 'green' :)
(31 December 2012 - 10:51 PM) Well, as Ady and me discussed - it wasn't us - and we usually agree on all these decisions - you had told us too that you didn't want to change colour - and most layout creators have had to wait ages before colour status change - look at Andy1 for example - he was creating layouts way before you vectra mate… Ady, has rightly, assumed that it was a mistake you changed colour, as it wasn't approved by the staff in general :)
(31 December 2012 - 10:45 PM) I thought I had gone colour-blind 
(25 December 2012 - 12:11 AM) thanks guys - mother sitting until tomorrow here at my Flat - so hectic isn't the word - but all worth it for Christmas :)
(25 December 2012 - 12:05 AM) Merry Christmas all - and congratulations to the Christmas Raffle winners - well done - enjoy your present! ;)
(24 December 2012 - 08:45 PM) I can't stop on guys because I am halfway through cooking the meat and the homemade soup for tomorrow's Xmas dinner - but to you @pilky and @RDP - Merry Christmas and to everyone else! :)
(17 December 2012 - 05:57 PM) shite... I've withdrawn myself because I thought it wasn't for staff too - nevermind, I've dismissed the messages for Raffles now anyway... :p lol
(09 December 2012 - 01:34 AM) @ pilky... no mate it isn't a going thing - but I never came into chat, so I can't say hello - it was only a brief pop on - I have been out all day in birmingham mate, and I am quite shattered - sorry if you thought I was ignoring you, but I wasn't aware that you were chatting to me here :)
(25 November 2012 - 12:38 AM) right off now I am going to get my beauty sleep - much too late in time for that I know... laters all!
(25 November 2012 - 12:34 AM) tommy c is fine dachs... he has, like the rest of us, a funny sense of humour - believe me - it helps! ;)
(25 November 2012 - 12:29 AM) I'm back on the bus now mate ;)
(25 November 2012 - 12:25 AM) pilky, why you copied my Shout mate? ;) lol
(25 November 2012 - 12:22 AM) that's good mate - to be honest I care as much for anyone with blue status too - I was blue for many years, and although I didn't contribute to the site, or make layouts, the input and other resources I have helped with through the past 11 years wouldn't have made me any less a member if I had stayed blue - contribution in any form counts in our community :)
(25 November 2012 - 12:17 AM) no I didn't mate - I don't know who has
(25 November 2012 - 12:15 AM) oh no mate - I would never say I am better than anyone bud, and I know you are kidding matey - it is just vectra made such an issue that he didn't want a green layout status to mods and admin in the past when he was creating layouts, then kept mentioning the total opposite on here to the Shoutbox saying why he hadnt changed colour. we had all been told he didn't want to change, and as Ady said, when layouts can be made to their own merit with a much more singular input, then the green is deserved better - but he has it now, and I hope you listen vectra mate, and live up to your new promotion - we will all be watching!! :p lol
(25 November 2012 - 12:10 AM) hi pilky :)
(25 November 2012 - 12:07 AM) @pilky & all... I know it certainly wasn't me either - anyway, for God's sake - it's only a colour - vectra is still only a member like the rest of us - we are all the same here and no better than anyone else, no matter what colour we are - I ohpe we all remember that. :)
(24 November 2012 - 04:45 PM) so it did matter then vectra? ;) lol
(24 November 2012 - 12:15 AM) @pilky - we will always be good mate :)
(23 November 2012 - 09:05 PM) @BJ - there were a couple who have been having the same problem at the Mecca mate - it seems those that didn't log out had the trouble before the site went down for maintenance - yet I didn't - and mine was OK - strange! ;) lol
(23 November 2012 - 02:57 PM) @vectra... I thought you said in posts before that you weren't bothered whether you got layout creator badge here, you would sooner have your donations badge - a few times I believe mate ;)
(18 November 2012 - 10:11 PM) yes I am off too - nite all - well two of ya! ;) lol
(18 November 2012 - 10:10 PM) @Tommy - you can still spell better than a few of the newbie members here mate with a full keyboard at hand ;)
(18 November 2012 - 10:08 PM) bloody autocorrect! I meant X-Factor :p
(18 November 2012 - 10:07 PM) I can't stand Max Factor corel mate... I never watch it and never would - and yes I agree my facebook does get the same responses every week :)
(18 November 2012 - 10:04 PM) stop being a Tommyknocker! ;)
(18 November 2012 - 10:03 PM) :p lol
(18 November 2012 - 12:00 AM) keep it good on here guys please... we don't want to be asking duplu to remove the Shoutbox do we? ;)
(11 November 2012 - 03:25 PM) ... sorry pilky mate I forget to come to chat cos my bookmark takes me to Forums page... long time no see - hope you keeping OK mate - a brief visit because I am off to my mums soon to do her meds :)
(28 October 2012 - 02:45 AM) Sorry cashbox mate I missed your first shout... just popping on before I go to noddy land... Hope you OK mate :)
(03 October 2012 - 05:07 PM) I was a blood donor before the spunk left your dad's balls lad... good feeling ain't it - now do us all a favour and go and donate your fingers and give the keypad a rest please :)
(03 October 2012 - 04:49 PM) @brownbag... get a life lad, before its too late and life slips you by... you'll regret all this when you grow up lad
(03 October 2012 - 03:50 PM) agreed Ady mate... much more important things in life... and I think I shall go and enjoy some of them for a bit now happiness seems to have been restored here ;)
(26 September 2012 - 04:24 PM) @todd... good grief, if we resort to that lot - bring on my dementia demise... quick!! :p lol
(26 September 2012 - 03:25 PM) ... erm Mr Toodles... I'm poorly with a cold - so that is excuse from one of us... :p lol
(12 September 2012 - 06:46 PM) Go to Downloads and you will find all you need there salvonight - we can't give you links if we don't know what you want ;)
(12 September 2012 - 05:10 PM) type 50000 or 100000 though without the separator ;)
(12 September 2012 - 05:08 PM) @salvonight - try going to Configuration and turn down the Speed to between 50,000 --> 100,000 - see if that helps :)
(11 September 2012 - 08:39 PM) thanks guys… Two in the hand is worth one in the bush! ;)
(11 September 2012 - 07:54 PM) yes could you PM it me please - I haven’t got it - and I can’t find it - thanks! ☺
(11 September 2012 - 07:37 PM) I haven’t got Royal Exchange in my collection (mind you lost all mine in external HDD crash) - will try and find yours & bruce’s Tommy mate ☺
(11 September 2012 - 07:08 PM) I am sure Barcrest did a clubbed called Royal Exchange - an updated clone of Club Lucky Strike, and club big Brother to Razzle Dazzle ☺
(09 September 2012 - 05:40 PM) I know bud ;) - I got my Mac Mini last year and that was it - addicted! :) lol
(09 September 2012 - 05:36 PM) using IE8 and Firefox - so gone through every browser and operating system - duplu will sort it :)
(09 September 2012 - 05:35 PM) well I am getting the same error with Bootcamp Windows XP - so it proves that it isn't bad Apples! :p
(09 September 2012 - 05:24 PM) @toddy - now mate - I have Mountain Lion on my Mac mini and and its just the same... Our Apples must all have some bugs in! :p
(09 September 2012 - 05:16 PM) That is pink, then it takes you to a blue page saying the page couldn't be found, or something like that lol
(09 September 2012 - 05:13 PM) @todd - yes mate that is what I am getting :)
(09 September 2012 - 05:13 PM) @BJ - I know mate - it is for everyone, I am just getting a Database Error when I try to access the Forums page - every other FE link and my other links are fine :)
(09 September 2012 - 05:11 PM) @duplu & Ady - PMs sent to you both showing you the errors I am receiving :)
(09 September 2012 - 05:01 PM) right - this error is system wide with me accessing the main Forums index on my iPad, iPhone and now my computers! I cannot access the main Forum page at all! Don't know what has happened if no one else is having the problem lol
(09 September 2012 - 04:02 PM) @duplu - OK I have that... will do mate :)
(09 September 2012 - 01:44 PM) Still the same on my iDevices... will have to try the computer later to see if I can access the Forums - strange lol
(09 September 2012 - 11:59 AM) OK thanks I will do cache clear on both see if it clears the error
(09 September 2012 - 10:19 AM) That is on my iPad and iPhone, using both Safari and Chrome... I haven't been on my computers yet, so it might be a mobile device thing?
(09 September 2012 - 10:17 AM) Is this error with the Forums index still ongoing then, because I can't access the Forums at all, only every other link?
(08 September 2012 - 11:31 PM) probably still part of the system upgrade pilky mate - it will be fine when it is all sorted out
(08 September 2012 - 11:05 PM) there appears to be an error for me accessing the Forums page "Database Error - Cannot Be Found" is the message :)
(05 September 2012 - 07:27 PM) hi ric mate - sorry its a brief visit but going a walk now to use my new telescope - speak soon - bye :)
(05 September 2012 - 07:23 PM) @vec… Can’t stop - going out - just to congratulate you on your first release and to let you know I have deleted the ‘unsure’ £25 thread ;) - well done :)
(04 September 2012 - 05:25 PM) @BJ… I will get duplu to put a toilet roll on the front page too - we can wipe their backsides for them whilst we’re at it mate ;)
(02 September 2012 - 12:28 PM) @@mocochoco - I have deletedI the one without any replies in mate :)
(30 August 2012 - 06:14 PM) What a strange Topic!
(29 August 2012 - 11:21 PM) redheads are supposed to be more fiery I hear - I just end up with ginger nuts! ;) lol
(29 August 2012 - 10:52 PM) the day is only 20 minutes old… you’ve been in an arcade already? ;)
(25 August 2012 - 12:05 PM) lol... they certainly can't be any worse than mine :bigeyes19:
(25 August 2012 - 11:27 AM) the jokes I mean... :p pmsl
(25 August 2012 - 11:27 AM) @todd... I think vectra gave you a hint there bud to quit whilst the going was bad! :p lol
(21 August 2012 - 12:52 PM) What did I say! ;) lol
(21 August 2012 - 12:42 PM) It'll be fine on Chrome and Safari on Macs, but I bet it goes tits up on Firefox and all the IE versions!
(19 August 2012 - 11:41 PM) 24/7 lol - I'll change my name to ASDA! ;)
(18 August 2012 - 08:23 PM) Todd is a great Mod - he has my 100% support and backing :) chasnbons is a good friend too - they just have different views :)
(18 August 2012 - 08:07 PM) @ric - it ain’t mate - I have seen it much, much worse than this in these loads of years we’ve been here ;)
(18 August 2012 - 07:06 PM) just off now - no pub crawl - can’t be bothered to walk - and don’t drink either - just for a walk - laters all :)
(18 August 2012 - 06:46 PM) can’t stop long - off out soon :)
(18 August 2012 - 06:42 PM) aye up ;)
(18 August 2012 - 03:19 PM) afternoon all - hope you all OK :)
(16 August 2012 - 11:07 PM) I think it was party time double? with the two boards up top - quite a few years ago now ;) lol
(16 August 2012 - 10:49 PM) I do occasionally mate - but only to play FME and MSTS (train simulation) and to play my music - Windows XP rocks, especially now I can dual boot on my MacBook - but I do love my Mac computer and laptop and the OS X system more :)
(16 August 2012 - 10:42 PM) thanks mate - I had one off you moons ago - but don’t know where it went - brilliant games mate - well done on your site and the improvements made @fruitman :)
(16 August 2012 - 10:11 PM) thanks I have Bootcamp on both my Mac computers - but only boot into Windows on the odd occasion - just wondered if they were compatible for OS X - never mind :)
(16 August 2012 - 08:35 PM) hi fruitman - do your games work on the Mac computer, or is any made in OS X code mate?
(16 August 2012 - 07:15 PM) I think that’s great to see someone’s first download is the tutorial - and not asking for DOND - well done @Jamie-Barrie
(15 August 2012 - 07:25 PM) so did I ;) lol
(15 August 2012 - 06:58 PM) they weren’t they were talking to Merthyr Tidville - my alter ego!
(15 August 2012 - 06:53 PM) I only know because someone called it me the other day lol
(15 August 2012 - 06:49 PM) schizophrenia - one sure way to fall out with yourself ;)
(15 August 2012 - 06:43 PM) he must be a bugger to buy Christmas presents for! :p lol
(15 August 2012 - 06:07 PM) @BJ - I haven’t noticed that… do you think we’ll have fun?
(15 August 2012 - 12:20 PM) here’s the link :) http://www.fruit-emu.com/forums/files/
(15 August 2012 - 12:19 PM) @richardpotter - some are new, some aren't - we mainly go for the older machines but there are some later ones - not all the techs are emulated - take a look in the Downloads section of the site :)
(15 August 2012 - 01:52 AM) I've only applied one uploaded layout earlier this evening mate
(15 August 2012 - 01:49 AM) @fruitman - sorry mate, I am new to this here... PM Ady or duplu mate - they will be able to help more than me - still finding my way round :)
(14 August 2012 - 09:18 PM) @ric… you know where the toilet is bud ;) lol
(14 August 2012 - 09:10 PM) @jonas… I’m sorry I didn’t realise I was on Blockbusters - I didn’t realise that everything had to link up on here - and here’s me only a mod eh?! ;) lol
(14 August 2012 - 08:04 PM) ;) lol
(14 August 2012 - 08:02 PM) @all - I started that thread as a question in general, without individuals being mentioned - just my personal opinion on the death penalty - but some individuals try twisting my words - luckily I and @BJ are still on the ball! :p lol
(12 August 2012 - 12:24 PM) #weather... quite pleasant here in East Midlands - well my neck of the woods actually
(11 August 2012 - 10:11 AM) @pilky... just a quick reply mate cos I have got to go out... no we don't see anyone who is anon mate. Members can be anonymous on sign in if they wish, however we all see their posts if they make, like you do - its their right bud :)
(10 August 2012 - 06:55 PM) well if and when I go to my first interview at the ESA, I shall take my dementia nurse with me (she said she will come) and let them sort it out mate... they made the decision! ;) lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:53 PM) @ric... don't mention call centres matey... press 1 for sorrow... press 2 for joy... it does my nut, and you usually end up back in the same place you started off at in the beginning!! lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:51 PM) Still, as my grandma used to say... "it'll all come out in the wash" :)
(10 August 2012 - 06:49 PM) @pilky... I don't really know mate until I tried it, but then could I remember what I was learnt? A bit of the devil and the deep blue sea area bud
(10 August 2012 - 06:43 PM) I was in the bar and retail trade mate... got my qualifications and all that... but who would set me on now? I know I wouldn't set me on with cash handling now! lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:37 PM) I don't know... I just miss not being able to work and that sense of worth it gave me - now, I would probably forget where to go, without someone with me! lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:31 PM) @all... I am looking forward to going back to work if DWP get me back into employment... I hope they remind me to go though.... lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:28 PM) @ric... that's me just been put off my pork scratchings! ;)
(10 August 2012 - 06:20 PM) @pilky... one of the reasons bud ;) lol
(10 August 2012 - 06:12 PM) @ady... I can think of a lot worse that can happen with knobs bud! :p
(09 August 2012 - 08:28 PM) talk about getting a life - I don't think he has ever had one ;)
(09 August 2012 - 08:23 PM) well let's just see what the next alias will be ;) lol
(09 August 2012 - 08:16 PM) I know I think he was expecting a little more support than he got - and so he quit too! I believe he is a 'ghost' there now isn't he? a shame really because I do respect him on some issues :)
(09 August 2012 - 08:13 PM) a bit? he was a total twat man! :p lol
(09 August 2012 - 08:12 PM) I had some the other week @ the Mecca! ;)
(09 August 2012 - 08:10 PM) @BJ - where your Gold Medal status with pride mate - I and others know you always give regularly to the scene, whether cash, advice or resources - it is earned mate, believe me :)
(09 August 2012 - 08:09 PM) @ady - I think he has found out how resourceful we can be ;)
(05 August 2012 - 08:32 PM) well deserved pilky - the fastest man on Earth ☺
(05 August 2012 - 08:07 PM) well at least it shows that even the best aren’t invincible though mate
(05 August 2012 - 08:05 PM) let’s see if he doesn’t have a false start like he did in Beijing and get disqualified then
(05 August 2012 - 08:03 PM) have you all been watching our Gold wins today?
(05 August 2012 - 08:02 PM) @ady… same as me mate - light’s one but no one’s in! ☺
(05 August 2012 - 03:20 PM) @pilky - we don't delete threads mate, unless unsavoury... It's there for archive - posterity ;) lol
(04 August 2012 - 01:39 PM) I am reading up on it mate - but not touching - all too many @ # / ~ buttons for me at present mate - got to understand them a little first ☺
(04 August 2012 - 01:32 PM) @pilky - I have mentioned it for you mate… see what happens from there ☺
(03 August 2012 - 08:17 PM) getting there - apparently I have been told I am still online here when I’m not! - sorry about that - not being ignorant buddy :)
(03 August 2012 - 07:53 PM) sorry @pilky - sent you PM back - Bootcamp taking ages to update - I might disappear again! :p lol
(31 July 2012 - 09:16 PM) I’m off too - took my meds and ready to see the back of my eyelids soon - laters all
(31 July 2012 - 08:55 PM) I think cheese has been quite resourceful in the past though?
(31 July 2012 - 08:53 PM) @vec - that could be most of this scene mate! :p lol
(31 July 2012 - 08:51 PM) thanks BJ - that was the link on dialtone’s WordPress blog I was on about - mentioned here at Fruit Emu last year I’m sure of it - no updates since February though - so don’t hold your breath ☺
(31 July 2012 - 08:44 PM) I think there was a tool that allowed for JPeMu layouts in MFME to be converted - or a separate tool - can’t remember to it can, and as you say, has been done
(31 July 2012 - 08:40 PM) @vec - JPeMu was made by dialtone and he isn’t updating the emu either as far as we know - there was talk last year, it is on here somewhere - but tbh I can’t be arsed to search for it! :p lol
(31 July 2012 - 08:36 PM) @BJ - we haven’t heard from him in years have we mate - I remember quite a few years ago there was talk of BFMulator being released with SC4 - but nothing ever come of it for sure
(31 July 2012 - 08:31 PM) @ vec - you would’ve got the BFMulator eventually anyway ☺
(31 July 2012 - 08:29 PM) the guy is a genius for sure and none of us would be here without him… but I think Frankenstein and his monster come into play now sadly
(31 July 2012 - 08:26 PM) @vec - was it good of him though? he used to charge for the emu when it first came out
(31 July 2012 - 08:24 PM) @BJ - I can remember reading that years ago - forgotten all about that mate lol
(31 July 2012 - 08:14 PM) thats right vec - I suppose in time MAME will do that, but I do think that will be quite a bit yet though
(31 July 2012 - 08:11 PM) @vectra… probably so mate in time to come, if the resources, roms etc are public
(31 July 2012 - 08:08 PM) … I’m around to see that! ☺
(31 July 2012 - 08:08 PM) and the scene will be able to literally work together for a change - I hope;
(31 July 2012 - 08:06 PM) and there is also Guitar with Amber too - we aren’t dead in FME land yet
(31 July 2012 - 08:04 PM) I think when MAME get in the swing of it, you will all have something for the FME future - I’m hoping you all have ☺
(31 July 2012 - 07:59 PM) I hope I’m not being classified as Germany! :p lol
(29 July 2012 - 08:16 PM) oh dear - the magician of Oz didn’t quit because of me did he? :p lol
(29 July 2012 - 06:32 PM) I feel more like the bloke from GoCompare.com at the moment getting used to it all mate, after he was blasted! :)
(29 July 2012 - 06:27 PM) nice colour pilky - suits me well :p lol
(29 July 2012 - 06:25 PM) hi all - online now - real life got in way - thanks for the welcome and support all!
