08.01.2003 some words about TuxArcade project.

Some months ago ended mine arcade, I have tried a Mame frontend for Linux unfortunately I've not found programs that made what I wanted. So TuxArcade was born.

The main features are:
  • designed for arcade cabinet, so no need keyboard/mouse ...it's completly configurable via joystick
  • multi emulator front end
  • game image preview
  • preferred game list and game type/num of player
  • theme support
  • install/remove roms
  • Sound effect and Background(wav/mp3)

  • You can Download the devel version here.

    If you want to post comments or help me in this project you can subscribe to the tuxarcade-devel mailinglist.

    Other frontends for Arcade are:
  • AvancedMenu (part of AdvanceMame Projects) [Linux/Win32]
  • ArcadeOS [Win32 only]
  • LAzarus [Win32 only]
  • Game Launcher [Win32 only]
