I just wanted to give you all a heads up on my new addon for NewRetroArcade: Neon and thought I would share on the forum. NewRetroArcade is not in my opinion getting the love it deserves. It is a fantastic creation, but is often difficult for individuals new to the emulation scene to get started. I am hoping that this might help both those that are new to emulation and those with large rom collections. Anyway here is the details.
NewRetroArcade: Neon - Arcade Manager Addon
Release 1.5 - Please use caution and backup your NewRetroArcade files before running.
One of the things I loved about the arcades was walking up to machines that I had never seen before and finding some fantastic games. If like me you love NewRetroArcade, but feel that the environment can get a bit stale then this addon is for you.
I am looking for support from the community to extend the collection and have a random selection of games, posters, tapes and cartridges available in the one place. Everything is maintained through the included CSV files, which can be updated via Excel.
Ok, so what is the point in this I hear you ask? Well, the whole objective of this is to have a library of content that can be either randomly generated or held in a fixed location. I have a list of my favourite games that I want to see in the arcade all the time, but I would like the arcade to randomise some of the elements. This allows the limitations of the small arcade to grow by just maintaining a list of available content.
This pack is fairly large as it includes 100 cabinets with artwork and attract screens. This is a pack to get you started and I really would love to hear from anyone that adds content to this as I want to consolidate and make the pack larger. Any questions then please ask and thanks to the community for the support.
