How to Download and Install MAME on Your Computer

Currently, more and more connoisseurs of retro arcade games choose MAME, a multiple arcade machine emulator. This program makes it possible for you to run classic arcade games on your Windows computer even without having a physical console. MAME reliability and functionality have been approved of and verified by lots of users. Therefore, it remains one of the most frequently downloaded and utilized arcade emulators available in the Internet.

Downloading and Installing MAME

We suggest visiting the MAME official website to get the program. The site always has the latest releases and necessary updates for its product.

Of course, you may find and download the emulator from elsewhere. Still, in such a case, you can’t be sure that you’re getting completely safe software. Be choosy and never get any soft from non-reputable third-party sources to save your comp from any possible damage.

Once you are on the website, find the latest available link and follow it. Make sure to select the version of the emulator that will be compatible with your Windows system. After that, save the downloaded compressed file to your desktop.

The next step will be extracting the necessary files from the emulator. To do it, navigate to the desktop and click on the archived file. When the extraction process is complete, it will be necessary to choose the folder you want to save the program to.

Creating a new folder and name it according to the content you want to store in it (e.g. MAME).

Getting ROMs for the Emulator

You will also need to get the games to run on your new emulator. Such games are called ROMs. They represent images of the games or cartridges you once used to play on a console. MAME site has lots of approved ROMs you can use to play on the downloaded emulator. Therefore, we recommend using its services.

Upon downloading the desired game, choose the option to extract the content of MAME ROMs download to the default “ROMs” folder. (You don’t need to bother creating this folder, since the system does it automatically).

After that, you will need to hold down the “Shift” button and right-click on the folder.

In the emulator, avail yourself of the “Open Command Window Here” option. It is necessary to use command prompt to start playing the downloaded games.

Then, you will need to type the name of our emulator and follow it up with the name of the folder containing the extracted content of your games. As a result, you will have something like “mame supermario” (provided that you have downloaded Super Mario, of course).

Once you are done, don’t hesitate to press Enter. By doing so, you will prompt your game to load and display on-screen.

Configuring Keys

It is always up to you to decide how to control your game. Therefore, developers of emulators provide you with an opportunity to remap the keys according to your liking. Suffice it to press Tab and get into the configuration menu, from where you will be able to select the buttons to control your game. Still, if you are reluctant to tinker with settings, you always can take advantage of the default configuration options.

Once you are done with configuring, start your MAME, select your favorite game from it, and head straight into the magical word of arcade adventures!

But in future, we will see a new revolution in the photography with greater pixels and the improvements in night photography with flashes.

Battery Life

The modern cell phones are rich of features, but when it comes to the usage of the cell phone, its battery start declining and we have to recharge the phone within few hours.

but it is still a real problem for the users to charge the cell phone battery within a minutes.

The new upcoming faster chargers will come up with at least 20 watts.

The cell phones will be chargeable half of the battery within 20 minutes or less.

Interaction Experience

The pressure sensitive screens were fixed in android cell phones a couple of years ago,

but a majority of the cases apps have not added on pressure-based interaction.

If you really want to take advantages 3D touch support for both applications and the operating system.

The upcoming devices interaction will be up to the mark and user will have real-life experience view in the display of the cell phones.

The emerging technologies for smartphones

How Will The Culture Evolve On Mars Colonies?

Well, the question of all time asks if there is life on Mars. But, we can answer another question.

Is it possible for humans to survive on Mars? And the answer will be, probably, positive.

As you know, humanity is obsessed with theories about colonies on a distant but attractive planet.

And modern technologies bring us closer and closer to every new day to that moment when the foot of the first human will step on Mars. However,

it has not happened yet, and we have some more theories to think about.

Our destiny

As you know, Stephen Hawking and Elon Musk are those people who try their hard to make Mars colonization happen in the nearest future.

According to their speeches, colonization of other planets will help humanity to save our population and get more resources that we already have on our native planet.

10 People Who Clearly Don’t Care About Your Rules

There are rules and standards set almost everywhere we go. We see them on public walls, on the lawn at the park, as we walk on sidewalks, and even in bathrooms. There are some rules that we truly need, but there are just some that we just really have to question. This includes the rule in the bathroom, on the paper towel dispenser that says you have to pull the towel with your two hands; and the rule that says you shouldn’t step on the grass.

Some of us aren’t afraid to break loose from the chains of these ridiculous rules and we dare to stand right by the rule sign and do exactly what we told not to. They show how much they aren’t afraid to rebel against these absurd standards. Check out this list of photos that these rebel have shared on the internet of their moment when they just had enough of silly rules.

The chair also shifts up and down, encouraging deep breathing. This is a perfect gadget for high-occupations, but don’t make the mistake of relaxing too much!

Communication Android
Meet Chihira Aico. The creepiest robot you will ever meet, designed by Toshiba. If you glanced at this robo-lady, you wouldn’t think anything of it, but when passing her by, you might hear her singing “What a wonderful world”. Chihira Aico also displays emotions, facial expressions and makes communication signals similar to a human being, i.e. hand waving. She is a perfect gadget for someone who is looking for a partner, not a life-partner!

Nymi
Imagine having to remember yet another password! Is there an easier way to log-in to email accounts and even unlock the house or car? With the Nymi-band, all this is quite possible. This wrist band utilizes electrical activity from your body heat to seek your authentication. This device is definitely terrifying and intriguing at the same time.

Virtuix Omni VR
This cool gadget is a treadmill that also resembles a torture device. It is designed to let gamers run and walk while playing games. It is basically a body cage with a large and shallow space for walking, supported and surrounded by the arms which form a high ring around the user’s waist. Gamers can put on slip-on shoes with sensors while using this device.

Tao Exercise Chair
Want to lose weight without going to the gym? With the Tao Exercise Chair, users are required to sit and use their arms to pull, push and move with their arms and body core. This is the best gizmo for couch potatoes.

Glam Screen
Selfie technology will soon take over the world. There were several weird gizmos at the CES 2015 Expo centered on the selfie concept. Take the Glam Screen. On the surface, it is a screen protector that is attached to the phone’s screen. When the display comes on, the Glam Screen appears clear, but when it turns off, it converts into a mirror.
