Wiki Master - Wiki Contributor
« on: March 21, 2006, 09:16:13 pm »
Added two new membergroups -- Wiki Master and Wiki Contributor. Anyone who contributes to Wiki Contributor can/will become Wiki Contributors. Very few people will become Wiki Masters.  The only point is to publically acknowledge people's contributions and to give whatever bragging rights that entails. If it ends up being divisive they'll probably go away. Just a minor pat on the back and thank you to everyone who is building the BYOAC wiki!

OH - it's a virtual certainty that I'll miss someone. Please let me know if that's the case.

Thanks!

I made the entries about hooking a computer up to an existing cabinet (PC to Jamma) and also added the info for the KeyWiz encoders.  Is that enough to qualify for the shiny new stars?

Well, the smell alone should speak for itself but..... ;)

I hadn't even realized that was what it was for...been absent (minded) for a few days with network problems.  Thanks Saint!  Although.....purple?  Blech!  Why not just make it a rainbow and give us leather chaps and a nice motorcycle cop outfit?  ;)

There are some things about you the rest of us already know, so you don't need extra icons pointing out the obvious.

Seriously, thanks for all the Wiki work.  After 4 years I've started working on my project again.  I had all the parts, it's just a matter of putting it all together.  I'm sure I've forgotten everything I needed to know to finish it, plus I'm there are probably things I was going to use or do may be obsolete by now.  It'll be nice to just look things up instead of posting beginner-ish questions.

My wiki-fu is not nearly up to the guys who built the wiki, but thank you for the recognition.

I have changed my nickname to "Cakemeister". Please do not PM the Buddabing account because I do not check it anymore.

Please read the wiki!

"Always two there are; no more, no less: a master and an apprentice."
"But which one was destroyed, the master or the apprentice?"

In this case the apprentice.

Just noticed this.

I created the Mame Support files page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/MAME#Mame_Support_Files

I added a Hardware section, as well as a section about launching utilties in the background to the "Hiding Windows" page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/index.php?title=Hiding_Windows&action=history

I added links to where to download content to the Screen, Title & Extras page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/index.php?title=Screens%2C_Titles_%26_Extras&action=history

I created the Light Gun page, as well as maintained it adding information when the LCDTopgun became available:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/Light_Guns

I added a slew of comparison data to the Operating Systems page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/index.php?title=Operating_system_comparison&action=history

I added a few useful Utilities to the Other Software page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/index.php?title=Other_Software&action=history

I added the Atari Lynx to the Handheld Consoles page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/w/index.php?title=Handheld_Consoles&action=history

I created a corresponding page for the Atari Lynx emulator, Handy:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/Handy

I added VirtuaNES to the Console emulator page I also created a page for VirtuaNES:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/VirtuaNES

I added the Admin pushbutton section to the control panel page:
http://wiki.arcadecontrols.com/wiki/Control_panel#Administration_Pushbuttons_Ideas

I'm sure there are more articles I've touched, these are the ones that come to mind.

I have a few more articles planned, including some hardware additions to the coin door page and another on wiring up power switches - including how to wire external devices to turn on off at the same time as everything else.

Please email me directly if I miss someone -- I'm out of town right now and it's not as easy to do site administration (I'm in class at the moment).  I'll be catching up on my email when I get back next week.
