Cool, so are you also gonna put back that silver metallic forum banner you first had showing after the site update? I'm not overly fond of the red one with my simplified cab design that's up there now. That silver one really gelled with the new format.

Ah yeah, that's looking better already on the front page. The new forum banner is cool, too. Nice embossed effect. :thumbsup:

hey, checked out the update! I like the idea overall, but I have a few suggestions...
(Please don't take anything the wrong way, but I am a stickler for details)

The Main page with the Arcade layout:

The idea itself is very cool, but to be honest I think it isn't very intuitive or clear the way it is now. The colors in the background are a bit too bright in contrast to the buttons, and some of the imagery conflicts with clear reading of the text. It also might look nicer if the logo itself was worked into the background in a more fluid way rather than having that "pasted on" kind of look that it has now.
Also as it is now, it could have been done in just CSS and flash seems kind of a waste to me.
It's a really cool idea overall, but I think it could use a few tweaks to do what it's trying to do in the most intuitive way.

The forums, overall look:
The forums and the overall look of the site that has changed I like a lot, the style is very nice, and it looks and works very well. The chat is a nice feature which, while I don't know if it was there before, is definitely easy to access.


Overall I like the look changes, I lust think things could be unified a bit more, there are maybe 4 different mameaddicts logos floating around, etc.

Anyway that's my take, please don't take offense to my pedantic dissection of stuff...
I could also work out something to show you what I mean, or a few examples of what I think might work better, I have done graphic design and web design for a while.

Hello to all. This is my first post here. Before I fell on mameaddicts on youtube, all the attemps I made to configure Mame was just useless. Its really great that the site gonna be updated, but will the available Mame already configured by the Author of the site be updated too? Taht would be really great :-).

G'day :hello:

Site update is pretty much done already. None of the MAME versions available here are pre-configured; they're all default.

@BFP Thanks for your insight, man. It's great to get an honest second opinion from someone with a high level of attention to detail. I'd be very interested to see more your analysis in pictorial form when you have time.
