    Time to vote for another year of "inductees" into the IVGHOF by no later than Feb 29th.

    Last year I couldn't vote in Rudy when they abruptly invented the "morals clause"...but THIS year that clause seems to be missing so I think I'll vote him in once more - http://www.ivghof.info/wp-content/uploads/2020/01/Official-Nomination-Form-2020.pdf ...

    The arguments have been made, the decisions have been made, the scores are now gone.

    Something for interested parties to consider but this would take a LOT of time and effort to thoroughly investigate.

    I was just re-watching this awesome trailer when the voice of the female character seemed all-too familiar to me.

    Does anyone else know if it's Lucy Lawless doing the voice ? It sounds amazingly similar.

    Once again US elected officials are blaming video games as the cause behind mass-shootings. Anything to divert from the fact that time and time again when these unfortunate situations happen a never-ending cycle occurs...and the real sources behind these senseless shootings are never addressed.

  10. WolfMAME Analog Control Question

    07-28-2019 at 09:46 PM
    How do you "invert" the up/down controls for MAME so that moving the mouse up makes the cursor go up (and moving it down makes the cursor go down) ?

    I haven't played an analog game in years and forgot how this is done.

    Thanks !!

    It is very well-written and covers all the bases, definitely worth the time to read.
