I Just wanted to post something about a little pet love of mine.

I was so excited when I descoverd thta I could download so many of those classic and I mean classic Arcade games from those days of spending time down the local leasure centre or cinima Arcade, mouth full of Walkers cheese and onion, tin of coke by my feet hammering at the Console buttons!!! Yes thats right my evenings,weekends and holidays were all about Pac man, Space Invaders, Gauntlet, Golden Axe, Gouls and Ghosts, Sonic, and Street Fighter II. And now I can play them all In remenisance of those days after downloading them on Xbox live onto my console!!!! YEHHHH BABY!!!!!!

Does this mean you can play multiplayer Gauntlet on XBox Live?

i'm just catching up on this thread, but if you can get gauntlet or gauntlet2 on the xbox, and play it multiplayer, it would tempt me to buy an xbox.

Gauntlet was just the best (closely followed by 1942 and Jackel)

Of course when my wife finds out it will be a case of "yellow elf is about to die..." :P

I keep looking for a Gauntlet II arcade cab on ebay.

One may turn up at a Games Vault near you in the future.

:wink:

Steve although totally against R4 cards (its killing the DS sales and new IP for that console) I love MAME as its not hurting retail or new IP and... although a Gauntlet arcade system would be good, for a very reasonable amount you could have a very cheap pc in an arcade cabinet hooked up to the controllers, where you can pick the games you want to play from a catalogue of hundreds. I believe you may be able to purchase a coin version as well (i realised while writting all this you are after all a shop :D ) i reccomend you look at these before purchasing a Gauntlet arcade machine (although that also would be really cool!).

Ops i meant to reply to Mikes post initially, yes you can get Gauntlet on Xbox live Arcade i think its between 400 - 800 points (£4-10) and -play it 4 player off or online. The others are on one of the namco Museum Arcade, it has Pac-man, Ms Pac man, Galaga, Xevious and Mr Driller :D hope that helps buddy!

To legally run a MAME you must own the game. If you do then check out http://www.instructables.com/id/MAME-Ca ... key-steps/ and speak to TBOPFalcon as he has built one previously.

I thought and think I thought I had the link somewhere that you can run mame for any games not commercially available. Damn if u can't! It is lovely now that arcades are very very rare.

Good job I didn't buy a pandora if not ;)

I'm pretty sure that you need to own a legitimate copy of the game, even if it isn't still commercially available. Once copyright expires (which now only takes about 75 years, I think) it may be different - I'll get back to you in 50 years or so.

I stand corrected although upon investigation there are over 150 Roms made legal by the makers of the games :) yay! Looks like it's back to the gauntlet watch steve!
