Guide for those new to Fruit Machine Emulation

16 August 2020 - 05:31 AM

This site


If you are getting a download wait error, then it's because you need to make at least a couple of dozen worthwhile posts to be able to download or you need to donate.


I'm not going to tell you not to donate here, afterall I still do. But this site was a great resource for fruit machine emulation, but is now sadly outdated for newbies and is only marginally of use to us long term members.


You won't find the new emulators here, most new machine layouts are not here and those that are released here, require emulators not available from here.


That is the way it is, whether people like it or not, so no point in arguing about it.




The best resources for everything fruit machine emulation wise is now www.desertislandfruits.com


I'll be upfront here and actually help you out, before you make any sort of mistake that could stop you becoming a member.  In fact I could be even helping you get around the system, but hopefully it means we get some great new members who might not make it otherwise.


You need to gain some reputation points off members before you can download. It's not difficult to achieve providing you follow some simple steps.


We are a small community, who have invested thousands upon thousands of hours and thousands and thousands of pounds, to get fruit machine emulation to where it is currently. So we rely on people who actually don't just want to leech and not even contribute with a thanks or like now and then for something they download. If that is the sort of person, you are, then you won't last long or even be accepted by the membership. Remember it's your loss, not ours.


Some definite things not to do....just signing up and simply staying quiet, you won't be able to do anything. If you sign up and start with chav/text speak or demanding stuff, you'll not get accepted either. If you sign up and post something like, I'm new where do I download the emulator and machines, you won't get accepted.


You don't need to jump through unreasonable loops, you simply need to follow the following steps.


1/ Sign up at www.desertislandfruits.com (use a proper not throwaway email)


2/ Wait for approval (it can take sometimes as it's not automatic)


3/ Once approved, make sure in the newbie section, you make a decent intro post (a little bit about yourself and your fruit machine likes and perhaps how you came about the site, is the sort of post that's likely to get you some welcome reps). Also read some of the posts for newbies and make some comments, in other threads


4/ Once you've got the rep points required, then you can download.


With that done, then it's up to you what you do from the following.


5a/ You could simply stay and leech, with a limited download limit. I doubt when a call for help is needed, you'll get much response from members.


5b/ You could stay, leech, with a limited download limit, but at least say thanks and like peoples hard work and interact with us, by making comments about releases and machines etc.... That alone is appreciated and will see you getting help when needed.


5c/ You could donate with resources, such as roms for fruit machines or maybe pictures of machines if requested by members, who are trying to make a layout for the emulator. That's a way where you can get plenty of help when needed and possibly even unlimited downloads.


5d/ You could donate to the forums. It doesn't have to be huge amounts a tenner every year for instance. You'll get unlimited downloads and when people see you are a donator, you likely to get all the help you need.


A note about donations. The site isn't simply about getting donations, otherwise we would just say donate and here have everything you want. You can't donate until you get the rep points to be accepted, which hopefully shows, it's as much about being a worthwhile contributor overall.

{MPU5}Nitro - Classic Layout

File Name: Nitro - Classic Layout

File Submitter: wearecity

File Category: MPU5

Here's Nitro
EDIT......NEW VERSION with a bit more colour.
An MPU5 machine by Red Gaming. Set on £25, 25p play, 80%.
Had nothing to do today, so just thought I'd knock up a standard looking classic this time and I think people seem just as happy with this style.
Thanks to Wizard and a special thanks to Brucegeorge for the reels, which are from X-Rated and sped up the layouts release no end.
Hopefully with the numerous images I've seen, a DX from someone one day.

Here's Paint The Town by Red Gaming.
Set on a £25 Jackpot at 30p Play, with 82% payout.
I've tried to incorporate as much detail of the real machine into the layout, with some obvious restrictions, so a bit of artistic impression here and there. I also this time didn't want any real graphic but to make everything with classic lamps.
It's a bit on the long side, but hopefully everything is readable on a 17" + screen at least.
Thanks as ever to Wizard for MFME and to everyone else for keeping the scene alive.

Not the best of images to work from, but lamps/reels all worked out and just the tarting up to do.
