Welcome to the newest version of Fraggals Boot CD



=(1)= Introduction:

First off, I'd like to thank Fraggal for letting me carry on his legendary "Boot CD", and for all his help thoughout my arcade cabinet adventure. {And the unlimited FTP access... :) }

Second of all, Id like to thank the MAME team, the Advmame team, all of ArcadeOS's great programmers, and everyone else that makes MAME what it is to this day. Thanks guys.


=(2)= New features to 3.90.1g:

- Completely new install interface
- AdvMAME .62.1
- ArcadeOS 2.5 (Thanks LasVegas!)
- DAMP MP3 player
- Compression! (The .ISO weighs 1/3 less!)
- Fixed goofy random bugs here and there
- ArcadeOS "UPDATE.BAT" support!
- Several more options for installation.


=(3)= Useage:

All you need to run this disk is a computer (duh), a CD-ROM drive (duh), and a hard drive (duh). If you have all these things, it shoudl work. Just start the computer with the Boot Disc in the drive, and your done. (Assumeing that your PC can boot from a CD-ROM [check your motherboard's manual for details].)

Note: There is _no_ need to use a boot floppy to get to the CD-ROM drive under DOS. The disk has a built-in floppy drive emulator that emulates a boot floppy with all the trimmings.


=(4)= What this disc does:

(Depends on what options you choose, but this is a typical installation:)

1. Allows you to partition your drive.*
2. Formats the drive for use.*
3. Installs DOS7 and appropriate configs.
4. Sets up AdvMAME .62.1 (i686/i586/k6).
5. Sets up ArcadeOS 2.5 for use with AdvMAME.
6. Can install DOS CD-ROM support.*
7. Can install DOS mouse support.*
8. Can set up MP3 support with DAMP.*
9. Helps you (but cannot completely) configure video modes.
10. Installs other helpful goodies.

(*optional)


=(5)= Possible problems:

As always, there is a chance that you will screw your machine up with a tool like this. Please do not complain to me about how you formatted your favorite MP3 collection into oblivion when you popped the disc into your PC one night after a kegger.

There is also a chance that you could damage arcade monitor with the video setup tools. Again, use care, and everything will be fine.

Legal spill: BY USEING THIS SOFTWARE PACKAGE, YOU UNDERSTAND THAT IF YOU BREAK IT, YOU BOUGHT IT. I cannot babysit you through the whole prosess, so I cannot guarentee that you will not do anything wrong. As such, I hold no responsibility for your actions henceforth. (Phew!)


=(6)= This is freeware!


NEVER, EVER, EVER (!) charge money for this disc or its contents. You dont "OWN" any of its contents, so you are not authorized to make money from it.

PLEASE SHARE. Pass this thing around. Alot of people are growing tired of fighting the battle that ensues after starting a cabniet project. Help them!


=(7)= Questions & Answers:

- Q: What if my mobo wont boot a cdrom?
- A: Use a boot disk with CD-ROM support, and run DOS.BAT from the disc.

- Q: Will you work on trying to add xxxxx feature?
- A: Sure! Send it to glitch77@yahoo.com

- Q: NEED BETTR MENUs. AND SOUND IS TOO LOUD. FIX IT.
- A: Die spacemonkey. Dont tell me what to do. Ask me.

- Q: Where can I find ROMs?
- A: The internet. Not from me, or this CD, ever.


=(8 )= Distribution:

You may distribute this file anywhere, anyhow, anytime, for free. Under these conditions:

1. No ROMs may be on the disc unless they are public domain.
2. The Readme.txt must be donwloadable seperatly from the .ISO (for ease of use).

Other than that, have at it. Put it on newsgroups, FTP, Kazaa, eDonkey, web sites, CDs, floppys, DVDs, or even SmartMedia cards for all I care. Just never profit from it.


=(9)= Credits:

People:

Fraggal, for the starting point.
Timberly, for loving me even when I stare at my screen for two straight days. XOXO.
And everyone in the MAME scene for making it possible to do the things we do.

Places:

AdvanceMAME  http://advancemame.sourceforge.net/
ArcadeOS     http://www.mameworld.net/pc2jamma/
DAMP         http://www.damp-mp3.co.uk/
DOS7         http://www.microsoft.com/ms.htm

Things:

My LiteON 48x 12x 48x CDRW drive, for beeing so speedy.
My MS IntellaMouse for never getting sticky.
And my insane ammound of computer hardware laying around to tinker with.


=(10)= Final thoughts:

This boot cd has been used by many (myself included) to make their dreams become reality. The dream of owning their own arcade, or breathing life back into an old habit that they have all but forgotton. Young and old, tall and short, fat and... well, fat ;), there is no greater thrill to many than playing a real arcade game, with a real joystick, and never wasting a quarter.

But this CD isnt the real hero here. Its the many people that put hours and hours into the MAME projects that make it all work. And hopefully, when you are playing Pac-Man in your home one day, youll give them a thumbs up for a job damn well done.

WARNING: Contains grammer so bad you should be at least 45 years old to view it. :P Jokin' Fraggy.


burn this iso with any program that will burn iso's. then boot from the cd everything else should be pretty easy to follow.

things it will never do:
put roms on your hard drive you will have to do that your self.
and don't ask me for them

things it does now:
install dos 7.0
arcadeos
advmame-aos 61.1
sound blaster drivers isa and pci
sound blaster live
and sets up your moritor of your choice
MP3 support in arcadeos with mpxplay

things for the future:
let you chose advmenu or arcadeos
advmenu is on the cd and is copied to your hard drive but you have to set it up your self
advcab is also copied but not set up
switch to free dos (will never happen inless freedos is updated to 32 bit)
add damp to arcadeos and do away with mpxplay.


this program was writen by fraggal(me) and comes with
arcadeos     http://www.mameworld.net/pc2jamma/
advancemame  http://mame.how.to
mpxplay      http://www.geocities.com/mpxplay/
dos 7.0  http://www.microsoft.com/ms.htm

if you find any problems in my part of this program IE: the installer. then send me an email and i'll try to fix it.
fraggal@earthlink.net do not post this email anywhere.
if looking to chat about mame go to www.mamechat.com i'm there all the time. (thinks big_O for setting up the chat room.
you can send this iso to whoever you would like but send this readme file with it.
i would like to think all the people that helped me fixing all the many bugs and brave to test the beta thanks guys and gals.
AND WOULD LIKE TO THANK MY WIFE FOR PUTTING UP WITH ALL THIS MAME BULL ---Cleveland steamer--- thanks jillie

thanks hope you have fun.

Let me also add, that I dont support his anymore, so plaese dont ask me any questions via email.

I am just keeping it alive to help people that need it.


Also, it uses an older version of ADVANCEMAME that is no longer supported Im sure, but can be updated to a newer version (Dont ask me for help, please).

Enjoy.

I've never used AdvMame, so i just have a quick question to anyone who has.

Does AdvMame .62 correspond to MAME .62? 

What I'm asking is, if I set up roms to work with Mame .62, will it work with AdvMame .62, or should I use a different version of Mame. I'm betting they correspond, but just want to be sure.

And thanks for the link Glitch, this should be great for my older machines.
first off your and idiot

Man I love the internet, haha.

Thanks Glitch, I've got an old Pentium 2 I've been intending to configure for classics. This ISO should expediate the process greatly.

Excellant.  This looks like it will work great on the PIII-650 that I just put together.

I have used the fraggal boot disk for some time and it worked great.  I have had no problems with using advance mame and the roms from .62.

BTW, I am still hosting this, and it is being downloaded daily (logs show lots of activity).

Like I stated before, I dont support it, but its what I use to build my mame cabs. :)

Just a heads up (I was searching on google and saw someone documenting using this ISO), that I am pretty sure that the link posted to the ISO will die within a few months. So if you want this thing, you should grab it and burn it to a cdr or something quick. Also, if anyone would like to host this ancient relic, feel free to do so, and post up!

 :cheers:

Let me explain, i would like to make a dedicated mame cab for one game only, and dont wanna use windows, i would like too boot directly into the game, but since im no dos expert, maybe this can be allot of help for me.
i read this http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=87372.0 but it sounds hard to me. thanks
