Mame Bolt On
1 Posts
November 24, 2017 - 9:46 pm

Hey Guys,

Firstly I LOVE this site. Took me a while to figure out everything and check all the nooks and crannies but I finally decided on the Hperspin Original 256gb Bolt on. Installed it fine, working with my controllers Windows 10 superb.

However…..As im finalising the PC for a Bartop Ideally I wanted MAME / Arcade titles for when friends come and then the console stuff for me to enjoy.

Is there a Bolt on for MAME? I started to download the 6gb 420 set, is this compatible? Does it contain the media and if so is it a simple case of creating a new wheel in Hyper HQ and then dragging the database and roms to their respective folder?

Any help appreciated and thanks in advance.

I totally agree with the request.

Bolt is an awesome project for starter guys.

I am just coming from Launchbox. I like it very much but it require a lot of work.

Having something already ready is the maximum.

I think that taking rom from another set require some adjustment. Bolt is for 6 buttons arcade cab. But I have already set different joystick for each emulator, just having fun.

I am not able to use hyperspin and I am waiting for some realease.

I'll download the 420 set roms, because I want it, but having it in Bolt version should be good.

I'll make another post because I want Daphne also in bolt.

I hope for some reply.

If I can help doing some bolt I'll be happy.

Im not sure the bolt-on crew ever did a mame bolt on , shame really, the project crashed and dived when everyone who said they were getting involved, didnt, it could really do with some people to bring it back to life ?

Im curious though, what does CAPCOM run ? Thought that was MAME? if so its just a case of nabbing some roms and media for that MAME version…..Worth checking ? (I dont have it installed)

also check SHOOTERS see what thats on

Capcom is a mame platform.

I have read how to insert roms in an youtube video here in arcadepunks, for ps1.

But inserting Mame in bolt…what does it means? Creating another system. Point it to Mame emulator. Adding roms…from a any Mame? And media? wheel? Name have to be the same?

In ps1 youtube video is specified that the wheeler are already present for Ps1..ALL  wheel. So I only have  to insert the image, naming it like the wheel. Editing game database and stop.

So, If I have nothing already inserted…from where I start? I am able to use Launchbox but Hyperspin seems a bit harder.

So, to recall the other thread…DAPHNE has the same situation.


Anyway…I see that there is a HS BOLT complete. This versione has all…I tried to download it but there are few…seeders? (i dont know the exact name). So I started to download all the pack separatly.

But in that complete BOLT pack, there are MAME and Daphne and other…

I hope my english is understandable
