With a lot of chat going in the Retroarch thread i thought it was maybe time that this got it's own thread. I openly admit i am personally yet to get the thing working on my own PC but people on the forum speak very highly of it, and i can't wait to experience it myself.
I came across it purely by chance.
COINOPS FORGOTTEN WORLDS 4 MULTI
I know it was on the original Xbox but it's only recently that's it been released on PC. It is incredibly easy to set up and use - provided you've got the file structure in place once unzipped. I assume you can get just a pure front end version, but everyone I've seen so far comes with at least some roms.
With some tinkering, you can add almost anything to it. My current setup is a ridiculous GB. It runs on numerous emulators, displays videos and logos of most game, and much more. To install, I unzipped all the files, clicked one batch file to set it up to show all games, then launched it. It also comes pre-configured to work with an xbox pad. And it's also setup to accommodate twin stick shooters like Smash TV. You can play with bezels, without, full screen, windowed and about another 20 options - all of which are configured by running a specific batch file.
That looks pretty good, but those overlays are absolutely horrendous. Why are they obscuring some of the "screen" and why not just stick to the original arcade artwork? This is why the publishers should get their shit together and produce releases that are curated with passion!
I want to experience as much nostalgia as possible - including the waft of fried donuts and chips in the background. There are two different things going on there.
Basically for every single game on the game select screen, there's a big graphic with a little postcard-sized window that plays a video clip of the game. The other screenshots are once the games are actually loaded up to play.
Those are preconfigured as pillarboxed screens, with a scanline effect etc, and some sort of static graphic on either side. It may or may not be original arcade artwork, I'm sure it varies from title to title. I've had a bit of a play with it and it's clearly been a massive labour of love for someone.
I haven't spent long enough with any of the games to know how it handles things like save states, custom controls etc. The fake screen reflections on the default setup make me feel like I'm about to have a migraine and the shimmering caused by every type of fake scanline I've tried on an LCD at desk distance from my face feels like an oncoming headache.Forgotten Worldsreleased by Capcom in arcades across the globe inwas the first of SEGA's reprogrammed versions of Capcom's late 's coin-op bombshells, around the time when the Genesis first showed up in the spotlight in and Altered Beast was the pack in game.
The game is centered around two beefy duh soldiers in the Forgotten World, a planet that has been infested by monsters, aliens and dragons. These two camouflage-wearing, Terminator-look alikes they both wear "sunglasses" and one of them has a funky looking mohawk are called The Nameless Ones, for the simple fact that they carry no real names hmm, foreshadowing of Interplay's Planescape's Torment perhaps. Their job and yours, of course, is to rid the planet of these pesky monsters.
Using this satellite, you can rotate and shoot in all eight directions. Because all you're concentrating on is which way you rotate the character and the satellite, the game with fire by itself and will never turn off.
This "rapid fire" mode is very useful, but can become annoying when you want to aim the shots at the most powerful enemies. Forgotten Worlds is one of those games where it is much easier and more fun to play in two-player mode, since then the players can continue as much as they want.
Another fun aspect of the game is that you get to buy different weapons and items, including obligatory first-aid packs, and an armor. There is a shop in every stage of the game, but the further you get, the more expensive weapons are.
Overall, this is another outstanding, almost addictive shooter that shouldn't be overlooked. It is highly recommended that you find a friend to play with, though, as the game is insanely difficult in one-player mode. Two thumbs up! Screenshots from MobyGames. DaveP 0 point Amiga version. First game I ever bought for my amiga and probably the first one I completed too, since I was trying to get my monies worth.
Players and enemies didn't rotate as smoothly as I was hoping, but still grew to love the game. On PC version this game is totally unplayable.
Complete disaster, really I'll better try the Amiga version. Wertzui 1 point DOS version. Oh come on game, give me some beeper noise at least! Share your gamer memories, help others to run the game or comment anything you'd like.

CoinOPS Forgotten Worlds 4 - Britneyspairs
Author Topic: Forgotten Worlds - Spinner as analog dial and push button? Read times. Hey guys, I tried doing a research but can't seem to find what I'm looking for. Basically, the dial allows you to turn your player but when pressing down it, you can move your weapon instead of the character.
Also, pressing the dial down twice, will eliminate any character on the screen.Coinops Forgotten Worlds 4: Easy To Setup Emulation Frontend
I have the joystick but can't seem to track down the dial. How do I get a hold of something like this for Mame? Quote from: mrclean on March 19,pm. You know, I've been playing Forgotten Worlds on and off for 20 years, and never knew that trick about hitting the button twice to destroy all characters on the screen.
It's not authentic, or perfect, but it works well. It's always been a pet hate of mine when people go to extreme costs to partly re-create controls for just one MAME game, but if you're gonna do it, be sure the expense is worth it first and get the best you can.
Just have fun. Quote from: uprightbass on March 20,am. Quote from: brokentoken on March 19,pm. Quote from: Turnarcades on March 19,pm. Yeah, Forgotten Worlds was one of my favorites. Part of what made it so good was the controller was perfect for the game, and the game perfect for the controller.
Just like FWIW, the other push. I do have the excellent TT2, though. Question, these spinners you guys are posting, if you push Quote from: vestax on March 20,pm.
This was a favorite of mine too also, the chick in the store was hot. To my knowledge, FW doesn't require a "free spinning" spinner. Within this game, the spinner is used in a precise, controlled manner, like a dial or paddle.
It has good reviews from Google Earth users, who report it has a nice, solid, heavy feel about it. Quote from: TPB on March 21,am.
This is one of my favorites, and a big reason to be building a cab. Is there anybody who has one that would like to give a quick review? So far, it has not gotten to work with any MAME products. The products has very strict drivers and work only with specific applications supported. I would have to decompile the drivers in order to have any hope of making it work. However, am no programmer, so basically I wasted my money.
It does work great with Google Earth though. But I may still return it as I can't find any other use for it.Uploaded by laserghost on October 1, This banner text can have markup.

This is built with its own unique look and feel, it even has its own bezel art and many games like ikari warriors have unique control enhancements commando stlye unless you use the right stick and then its robotron style. This is built to be family friendly to bring back the forgotten worlds of the Arcades This can be changed in "controls. I hate the new paranoid internet where everything is done only when it's brand new.
I am guessing people get notified by smartphones which I do not have nor ever will life a phone life. Edit: Since there is no way to reply I hope this gets seen.
The torrent would never complete but since I have a fast internet connection within 40 mins I downloaded the whole thing direct and turns out 7 zip works but Win Rar gives nothing but corrupt header. The download also moves on it's own when selecting a game so you can't really select one and when you click n a game like the N64 ones PRJ64 has a weird black pixalated screen which I will just stick to my standalone one. Coin Ops is either a huge scam or it's still for Xbox only which is why there is only a few complaints from the PC people as I suspected all along mostly Xbox one people are talking about it.
The few complaints are from PC's like me. PC's have been dead for about 6 years now. Hope this helps you.April 16,am. Home Help Search Login Register. Send this topic Print. Read times. Hey all - just wanted to give everyone a heads up.
I have an early release running on my mame cab. It runs butter smooth on a 3ghz Pentium G with 4 gigs of ram. I've seen this before The CriticalCid video theme is basically all it does it seems No, CC videos are not involved for this.
These are separate graphics animated by RetroFE as you can tell from the videos that keep playing while the background changes during scrolling. He ever get light guns working on the Xbox? This forum needs more threads about Arcade 1Up cabinets. Just like coinOPS the two biggest features for me are: 1. It looks awesome and I don't have to setup my frontend aside from button assignments and such.
It just works Download it and go. For those who like to tinker with their front end I am sure you could do as nice a job yourself.
But for those of us who would rather not - its a compelling solution. Quote from: pbj on June 08,am. I dunno, man, I just watched some new Xbox light gun video and it still seems like you have to very carefully move it like an invisible joystick. Until you can point that thing at the floor and then point at a specific target on screen and have it work, then it's useless.
Quote from: smass on June 07,pm. Quote from: johnm on June 08,pm. Well obviously BP minds that i give you credit for your work because I have now been permanently banned from the coinops site for stating the very simple fact that he is not the developer.

Forgotten Worlds Gold was just released! Community projects, New Games, Or other exciting news. Let us know here. I'd post a link, but since it comes with Roms, I probably can't. Just Google it. It's supposed to run on lower spec systems, so It may work on the Dreamcade. Re: Forgotten Worlds Gold was just released!
Wheat Pasta. Profile Add. If you are having a software problem be it front end, Windows, or want to try RetroArch and LauchBox but need help feel free to contact me. Post on the forum, PM here, or on Discord. I will be more then happy to do my best to get you sorted.
Works great and I highly recommend trying this out on the Replay. Anyone interested in posting a walk-through to get this up and running for us more "technically challenged" folks? No issues getting it to start. There are stutters and slowdowns Perhaps tweaking the setup to where some features were disabled, like the crt curvature and crt screen dirt I think it would run better.

Reason: Please don't mention where to get roms or rom packs bundled with software.Posted by avant at Email This BlogThis! My console additions for CO8R3. The dos additions will be in a subsequent dos pack. These additions are a mix of new homebrew, unreleased games, hacks and translations, and demo scene releases. A few yet to add like Super Mario Run hack for N Some new previously unreleased games, hacks, homebrew, translations, and some demoscene console prods. Looking forward to testing these.
A youtube commenter left a message saying he could not work out how to start Mayhem in Monsterland. I made a video demonstrating how to do it:. Back in late and early a few DOS packs were made. This was before Pipmick started making DOS packs.
I decided to go through them and test them - many did not work, so I spent the last 6 months fixing the ones I could. Many sellers are still selling CoinOPS xboxes with the old broken pack. These are suggested by the community in the CoinOPS forum. Personally I made a small number of requests as the bulk of my current pack work was added to the list with CoinOPS 8. However with this small number of games across a variety of platforms I have been able to quickly produce an interesting and varied pack with many highlights.
