I want it to be, so it probably will be. The issue right now is we're trying to get the community build process functioning. I stopped all my work on the MAME plugin until we get the builders up and running again.

Maybe I missed this, but will there be new default folders to house the various ROMS?  Will there be any file structure changes regarding this feature?

Thom,

Whats the situation on ROM's with respect to licensing? Are there any ROM's in the public domain? Do you know of any companies that will license ROM's? My question relates to LinuxMCE and our ability to include a few sample ROM's in the default installation and secondly my company would like to include ROM's in our Dianemo installation and would be prepared to license these if it were possible to do so.

All the best

The current public domain roms are here:

as for other roms, you can contact companies like x-arcade, to get more rom packs.

That is great, thanks.

Any way we could link the the cabinet art. instead of the screenshots? not sure if it would even look better or be easier to find games or not, but it may look good or more consistent.

I love this.  Build a state of the art home automation system, distribute media, control lighting, hvac, alarm, surviellance and telcom.  Oh, and I want to play Galaga too.  LOL

This has to say something about our level of geekness, but I'm not sure what it is.

hehe

Dale_K: well, it came about because I needed to understand the system architecture, and it seemed the quickest way that I could dig into every single part of the system, was to write a new media player and media stream plugin.

I have since touched and learned every single line of code in the system. :)
