Subject description: Videogame Emulation Puplet, now based on TurboPup!!
 

Puppy Arcade 5

WARNING: This version (v5) is outdated!! Puppy Arcade 9 is now available here.

Systems emulated in Puppy Arcade 5:

Amiga, Atari, Amstrad, Arcade Machines, Colecovision, Commodore 64, GameBoys (GB, GBC, GBA), GameGear, Genesis, MasterSystem, MS DOS, NeoGeo, NeoGeo CD, NES/Famicom, PC Engine/TurboGrafix 16, PSX, Scumm, SNES and ZX Spectrum.
______________________________________

Newest version: Puppy Arcade v5 Live CD - 11th Nov, 2009

Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Mirror 3 (109mb, md5: 3f114a4ffce5d5299c86b0b8ad09e636)


(Mirror 3 requires: user = puppy, password = PuppyArcadev5)

v5 is a no-bling version, but it's user-friendly, while still being even faster ever! Smile

Want bling like desktop icons and wallpaper? Easy! You've got 2 options:

1. Use the Start Menu:

Go to 'Menu->Desktop->Wallpaper', and set some wallpaper.
Go to 'Menu->Desktop->Emulator Desktop Bar', to show wbar, with all emulators.

2. Edit /root/.xinitrc (easy!) To do this, you must install this tiny bugfix for desktop bling

Just replace the contents of .xinitrc with the contents of .xinitrc-bling (or .xinitrc-nobling to remove bling again).
Then restart X to see the changes.
___________________________________

Only want the emulators?

Install Puppy Arcade to nearly any version of Puppy, using one of the files below.

Attention Puppy 4.3.x users!! All files below now work perfectly Smile

(New) Puppy Arcade v5 PET, for any Puppy:
Mirror 1 (27mb, md5: 2f05315076211fee9e0b852471fa4051)

Puppy Arcade v5 SFS for 4.2:
Mirror 1 (27mb, md5: 46a11797267cbac4d30f3a5334e961fd)

(New) Puppy Arcade v5 SFS for 4.3:
Mirror 1 (27mb, md5: 614f9d0593bfb5003827970814668428)
______________________________________

Visit the Puppy Arcade Download Page to see all files.
______________________________________

Download ROM Loaders / Multi Emulator Frontends

If you've installed the .pet or .sfs versions and have PERL or Python installed, or are using the Puppy Arcade v4/v5 ISOs, there's a number of ROM loaders and frontends available at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=346080#346080
_____________________________________

Changes in v5: What's in? What's out?

Packages Added:

- Emulators for systems listed above
- Desktop icons of all emulators (uses wbar), enabled from start menu
- VBA-M replaces VBA and gets a better frontend
- Spectemu added for ZX Spectrum emulation
- Firedog (updated and customised a bit)
- WISH Rush - the dual pane file manager - is back
- lots of CLI and GTK-Dialog apps (even more than before...)
- New JWM and ROX settings, for better usability (and gaming!)

Packages Removed:

- Abiword, Gnumeric, Inkscape, etc
- Seamonkey Suite,
- Homebank and some calculators
- PSIP
- Sane + Xsane,
- Extraneous/outdated apps (netsetup_retro, pbackup, etc)
- Some other stuff

Most emulators run without OpenGL, except Mupen64Plus and pSX, which DO require OpenGL.
NOTE: ePSXe doesn't need OpenGL in 'software' mode, and can be installed and used instead of pSX.

I cannot include roms with this release, but here are some great links where you can get them:
Rom-World.com, Romhustler.net, Emuparadise.org, Snes-O-Rama.us, CPS2 XOR Files, ROM Keeper, LemonAmiga
____________________________________________

Enabling OpenGL (for 3D acceleration):

To enable OpenGL, you simply need to find the correct drivers for your card in the puppy repositories, then download and install the relevant .PET file. Then (optionally) follow the softwares' instructions and restart X.

PETS FOR NVIDIA CARDS:
nvidia-7186.pet for ancient nvidia graphics cards (riva TNT to Geforce 1).
nvidia-9643.pet for most nvidia cards (officially Gf2 to Gf4 but tested on Gf7 OK).
nvidia-100.14.19.pet for latest cards (Gf5 to Gf8).

All Nvidia drivers are available http://download.tuxfamily.org/nop/
More Nvidia info http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=22272

Alternatively, you could download NVIDIA-Linux-x86-180.22-pkg1_412.sfs to add a large collection of proprietry Nvidia drivers.

PETS FOR ATI CARDS:
Catalyst 9.9: For newer cards, go to http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=46507
Catalyst 9.3: For older cards, go to http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=45601
You can find out which one you need at the pages above.

PETS FOR INTEL CARDS:
A few drivers and details about compatibility can be found at http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=44388
Finally, for one more .PET, you can check out http://murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?p=291587#291587

PETS for OLDER / VARIOUS CARDS:
Here are a load of .PET files for SiS, framebuffer, 3dfx, Voodoo, Intel, Matrox, VIA and others - http://www.murga-linux.com/puppy/viewtopic.php?t=48019

If you STILL can't find what you are looking for, then try a search at http://pupplinux.ca
____________________________________________

Playing Roms:

For pSX, you'll need to download the psx bios file 'scph1001.bin' to '/usr/local/pSX/bios' (case-sensitive).

Playing Amiga roms: Download the kickstart files (kick13, kick20, kick31), and put them in /usr/lib/uae.. Then create a symlink called 'kick.rom' that points to one of the kickstart files.

Playing Atari ST roms: You need to get the TOS file, and add it to the location that Hatari tells you. You can find these files here: http://steem.atari.st/download.htm
_____________________________________________

Installation:

Please note that (for me, at least) the fastest, easiest and most reliable way to install this to a hard drive or USB stick is simply to copy the Live CD files to a bootable device or partition. This will create a frugal install.
_____________________________________________

Older Version: Puppy Arcade v4 Live CD - 7th Nov, 2009

Also based on TurboPup, it works great but is missing VBA-M, Spectemu and a few other things.
Bling not disabled in this one by default!

Mirror 1, Mirror 2, Mirror 3 (108mb, md5: b4aa2879dc5e5ff2ad2b5abbc7dfc9d5)
_____________________________________________

Please leave your feedback, improvements and suggestions on this thread.
_____________________________________________

Hope this documentation helps you out.

For more, see the Puppy Arcade

You can't own any bios or rom files of any consoles or games that you've never bought.
You've been warned, now have fun!
_____________________________________________

Anyway.. Hope you enjoy Smile

I have seen the advanced CD site b4.

The problem is, the download link is either broken or unavailable.

Please check again.

If you've downloaded the ISO, you can use 'gtkhash' from ttuxxxx to get the checksum.

Anyway, I've added the first release, now called 'Puppy Arcade (Beta)', and included the checksum Smile
I will also include all checksums from now on. But I've still no idea what they are for! Shocked

And I was unable to compile any other versions of MAME for puppy, and I tried a few times...
I'm a total newbie myself.. So, sorry I can't help you there.

To All Users:

Please Use the newest version(s) - always listed in the first post!

Great job, Sc0ttman!
This was what the world of retrogaming was waiting for!
Congratulations, I'm sure that if you talk about your puplet on M.A.M.E. addicts' fora you will have lots of download and feedback.
Also, I hope that this can further expand Puppy's user base.
Well done!

Excellent work. Seriously, I was looking something like that. I am not an experienced Puppy user and i have a suggestion. While playing with xmame, bottom puppy menu always ontop. Couldnt be arranged as hidden?

Because I'm still new to Puppy... if I'm already using a frugal install of Puppy, will using a Puppy derivative (or a different version of Puppy) risk messing up my existing pup-save*.2fs file, by default?

I've been unable to put MAME on top of JWM in fullscreen... However, you can edit JWM settings to better support fullscreen gaming using the following files:

/root/.jwm/jwmrc-personal (best use this one - it overwrites any settings also found in the files below)
/root/.jwmrc
/root/.jwmrc-tray
/root/.jwm/jwmrc-theme

By editing the files above, you can make the taskbar auto-hide (as I did). You can also force the taskbar to appear under all applications, as it is always on top by default.

You could even switch to IceWM. With IceWM, you can always hit Alt+F11 to enable fullscreen and hide all taskbars, menus etc...

I've removed ALL IceWM themes to save a little space, so to make IceWM look nice, you can get a wide variety of themes found on this forum.. I like to use some of the windows and mac look-a-like themes.

Yes I believe using a save file on different puplets (or even different versions or puppy) will NOT work correctly, but DO check the forums elsewhere for the REAL info, as I'm really no expert..

Also, thanks a lot to everyone for the feedback, it is VERY much appreciated and stops me bugging my bro to test it all the time!!

I'll definitely post a link to this thread on a couple of emulation forums, and if you happen to be on one yourself, it would be lovely if you could do the same Smile

This may encourage some ACTUAL experts to get involved and improve this puplet further..

THANKS

when you run the gtkhash program on the iso it does a calculation and spits out a big number. You upload the iso and the number. We download the iso and run the gtkhash program to see if we get the same number. If so, it's the same file. It's a way of checking the file is the same that's harder to manipulate than the filesize or date created properties.

just copy it to a different name:
Code:
cp pup-save.2fs pup-save.2fs.orig
(or use drag n drop)
and rename it back when you've finished arcading

Lovely, thanks for that, I suspected as much but didn't want to post it as I wasn't at all sure. Confused

Subject description: Suggestions or problems?
 

There's not been much feedback left on this thread - either noone is interested or you're having no problems.. I'll assume the former for now, until I hear otherwise. Please let me know how this puplet works for you and how you would like to see it improve, if you're using it and have any suggestions. Thanks.

Well I tried it out, but anything based on 4.2 hates my netbook. No sound, no wifi. Seems to be a problem with the older kernal. I've been meaning to try this on my other system, but I haven't had the time yet.

I do like the idea of this Puppy and appreciate the work you've put into it. Any chance of a new version based on 4.3?

Firstly, thanks. Secondly, [update] - yes - install the SFS version for 4.3, listed in the first post.

Very Happy

Tried Puppy Arcade and played to several games with much fun

I think (if you also agree) that adding an Amiga Emulator (E-UAE)

could be a good thing
