Hello and thanks for this awesome software with all these great classic games:) I’v been using coinops on xbox for many years and on xbox everything is kinda plug and play like it seems to be also on pc. But still I consider myself beeing a rookie when it comes to emulators on pc when you have to edit paths, filenames and write commands. So I would like to know how can I change one emulator to another when using coinops? For example I would like to use Nestopia for nes games instead of MAME which is default. I went in “launchers.windows” folder and opened “NES.conf” and changed executable patch to match Nestopia location. When I try to launch a game in coinops, Nestopia launches but it gives me an error “file not found”. I assume it got something to do with a rom path but I don’t know what to do. So if someone could help me a little I would be really appreciated. Thank you:) GB Whatsapp

CoinOPS uses a modified MAME 0.196 version, so that version or the latest one should work just fine. I’m running with 0.217 myself.you can change the way CoinOPS behaves and customise the appearance You can choose Background themes, Background Music.

Hello and many thanks for this wonderful programme with all these wonderful retro games. Since I’ve been playing coinops on the Xbox for a while, everything there is essentially plug-and-play, just like it seems to be on the PC. When it comes to using emulators on a computer and having to alter paths, filenames, and write commands, I still think of myself as a novice. So how can I go from one emulator to another while utilising coinops? For NES games, for instance, I would like to utilise Nestopia over MAME, which is the default. I accessed “NES.conf” in the “launchers.windows” folder, adjusted the executable patch to match Nestopia’s path, then exited. Nestopia runs when I attempt to start a game in coinops, but it gives me a “file not found” problem message. I guess it has to do with a rom path, but I have no idea what to do. So I would really appreciate it if someone could assist me a bit. I’m grateful. GB Whatsapp

Hello and many thanks for this wonderful programme with all these wonderful retro games.

When it comes to using emulators on a computer and having to alter paths, filenames, and write commands. I still think of myself as a novice. So how can I go from one emulator to another when utilising coinops? For NES games, for instance, I would prefer to utilise Nestopia over MAME, which is the default. I accessed “NES.conf” in the “launchers.windows” folder, adjusted the executable patch to match Nestopia’s path, then exited. Nestopia starts whenever I attempt to launch a game in coinops.
