Hey guys. Not sure what I'm looking for exists, but swear I saw it on here. What I'm looking to do is addd a small screen to my arcade that will display the button layout for the game selected. I swear there was a project in here ,that was a Nintendo/squared vewlix build, were they guy had a setup like that. Any help wouldn't be appreciated!  Thanks.  :cheers:

Sounds like the software you're looking for is either headkaze's CPWizard with stigzler's CPWizBiz or Howard's MAME Hooker.

The build you mention is probably zerohex's Project NESFlix.
I think we can finally chalk this up as complete other than software tinkering and adding games here and there.



Can see the album here: https://flic.kr/s/aHskUxhi9j

There are a number of other builds that use a secondary display, such as RxBrad's Avengerless Avenger.
