I have been around the scene since the beginning and I don't detect that wizard has any hatred for this site unless I have missed something or a thread here that indicates otherwise, if this was his reason then surely he would have just stopped this site from hosting the latest versions of the emulator, and not just had one place to go, I cannot comment for other users here, but having to go to another site to download the emulator is no hardship, as I like most people here I am sure that most users also have accounts at all of the other main emulator sites any way, and visit them all a few times a week I know I do.
Although the emulator cannot be hosted here and I can see why Wizard has made this decision, but this site has no restrictions on hosting the layouts, and I would say that this is the come to site for the latest layouts.
Therefor it makes perfect sense to have the layout downloads section divided into sub sections for each version of the emulator to make the layouts for that version easier to locate for users, This is not an issue of who hosts the emulator or not, but more a suggestion on how to make this site better and easier to use for the users here at Fruit- Emu.
The later machines have a security chip on the board as well as the rom chips and the games will not run if the security chip is not there, at the moment this chip is not emulated so this means none of the games that use this SEC chip will not run in the Emulator, and as far as I know this is still not implemented in the forthcoming new version of the emulator
He did have to close his arcade in Gravesend, however since this small set back he has now opened several more arcades under the Mr p's name and he also has opened an arcade called Reel Fruits In Maidstone the Mr P's arcades are located at
Bognor (the newest one)
A visit to any of these arcades will bring back memories of the golden age of arcades and fruit machines, with High Percentages you should be able to spend a good few hours and not lose to much of your hard earned cash
I would get your self to Bognor Regis as Mr P has just opened his 1st seaside arcade there and he has a selection of classic machines, some of them are on £5 jackpots but he also has some on slightly larger jackpots, but he does have some of the new £500 ones as well in the over 18s area, and all of his machines are all on high percentages, so you will get a good game,
Nice to see the Mr P empire expanding, I know he has a big stock of classic AWP but as he now has 4 places I believe with Chatham, Bognor and Chatham as well Reel Fruits in Madstone, he must be getting near to having all of his classic machines doing what they should be entertaing the public in arcades, has he got enough for another one I wonder only time will tell, but I hope we get a good summer so his Bognor arcade is full of punters enjoying themselves, and playing all those classic machines, plus Mr p's high percentages meaning you can have a good time without losing much cash, and possibly even being up on your day.

If you are installing on the same PC you upgraded from once you reinstall. if you have not got a disk you can make one from any machine that has windows 10 installed on it if you don't have access to one yourself, then any one you know close to hand can make you one of these and burn to a DVD, you can use this to install and it should activate over the internet ok as your key should be stored by MS.
