Just to confirm, i have decided to close this down as i was sinking too many hours into this and with the usage rate of about 2 users a day it wasn't worth keeping it going.

i am going to make another site though purely for the fun of it which will be the fmedb arcade. it will be similar to what was on the FmeDB where it will record ins/out with achievements and also bounty's (which will be a new addition).

i just want to thank anyone who spend time uploaded images / machine info etc. im sorry it was ultimately a waste of time.

Heres a quick and rough example of cleaning lines. its not hard once you have done it a few times (this is a rushed example but hopefully enough to show you its not impossible)



Edit: i have attached an example of one of the worst ones i can remember doing, took me atleast 8 hours I.I.R.C but the payoff was great art to use for the layout.

i have found i do have the flyer for this, here ( http://www.fmedb.com/fmedb/flyer.zip ) spend time cleaning it up (dont be affraid to ask for help!), it will teach more than "lamping" a tiny image ever will.

I have to agree with tommy here, you seem keen on making layouts but dont seem to want to push yourself to do better.


some advice:


1. listen to peoples feedback, there are alot of things you (the designer) become blind to after staring at the same layout for hours.

2. find/buy some good resources, tiny images will always produce shocking layouts unless you are willing to redraw all of the art.

3. if you have trouble with doing part of the layout (red lamps for example) then ask on the forums, learn and then next time you will know what to do.

4. photos are one on the harder formats to work with as there are alot of things that need cleaning before being good enough for a layout, start with a good flyer for your first few layouts if you can.


standards of layouts are higher these days but even back in the 2000's a layout like this would have been shot down in seconds and rightly so, its sounds harsh to say but layouts like this dont belong in fme in 2019 there are plenty of good resources floating around if you dont want to buy any.

Just a quick update, machines, images and youtube videos can now be added by everyone. making some good progress now but really could do with some help with older machines.

Many thanks for the recent releases.

I'm no technical help to anyone but once ive got on top of family matters I am more than happy to donate to the site Ross.

If you pm me your detail re donations and i'l send over £20 will be next week asp.


Look forward to future releases.



Really appreciate the offer but the money is better off going to fruit emu rather than to me as this is still early days for the fmedb as it has little content at the moment.


On a side note, users can now submit machines (see screenshot) feel free to add any machines that are currentley missing i will be adding the ability to add images tomorrow (or by the end of the week at the latest)


*any new entries added will need to be approved.

Fantastic game and release Ross,alas it is as tight as a monkey's hole!

As anybody had a jackpot yet on the slot -i'm £250 in for £40 out with no sniff of a jackpot.!

Never seen a skill/skill nudge on the community/chance reel either.

Is it a ram that blocks jackpots etc as I can't gamble past £4 either!!! :err:


I only recall playing the £15 version of this and it gave a much better game.

Maybe a happy ram would help,as I feel like i'm losing my money for real lol.



Agreed, in all the time i spent playing i never got a single jackpot either. . . . i will be doing a layout for all stakes we have roms for though so £15jp will be coming :)

Just a quick heads up, i will be starting to upload my layouts here (monopoly first) you do not need to be a member to view but you will need to be a member to download.


monopoly will be released Friday (00:01 am) and then uploaded here 2 weeks later.


i will be queuing up more layouts soon too, im hoping to get a release done at least once per week.

Hi All,


So, i have decided to open up the site again ( http://www.fmedb.com/fmedb/). i still dont have alot of free time to populate but it is what it is, it will no doubt take a few more years yet but we will get there one day.


i have recently added the "Arcade", this will allow any user to create their own arcade and or play others:




you can play layouts after other users have played (if the machine is being played, the machine will be locked for upto an hour or when the user uploads the new gam and ram files) or you could create your own.


Create Arcade:

Go to user profile > my arcade > input a name for your arcade and click save. then click "Go To My Arcade" button you go to your arcade.



Add Machine:

1. Click the "Add Machine" image > Populate the "Machine UID" value (this can be found by searching for the machine then making a note of the number in the url (See screenshot)



2. You need to have a zip that only contains the ".gam" and ".ram" file in and select.

3. Select a screenshot image

4. Paste in a url link to the download of the layout.

5. Hit Submit.


The site will be live from 8pm tonight, i will be starting to upload my un released stuff in into the arcade from December.
