Do you play M.A.M.E?

If not then I suggest you do. Its a fun arcade emulator you can download for free on the net. It plays nearly every video arcade game ever; especially all the classics. You can play the classic star wars arcade games too!

I have but not regularly. I tend to just go home and plug in my Atari 2600. Still need Q-Bert and Burgertime, though.

I used to have Stella and lots of other emulators and games, but I had to wipe them when my pc screwed up. Now I just use Mame. I also suggest ZSNES for a super nintendo emulator, it has a nice and easy-to-use interface. I recommend downloading the Super Star Wars games for that.

Hehe, I own a SNES and all my favorite gaming modules for them. What I unfortunately don't have, is an intellevision. It was not very popular in germany, but two kids in the neighbourhood had one and I really loved the games on there, greatest console ever. All the games look almost as good as the arcade machines of that time.

I might buy one of Intellevision's emulation packages someday, though. intellivisionlives.com

Which part do you need help with Sean? If you're having trouble getting the games to work: here's my solution in a nutshell. 1.) download the latest version of MAME32 Plus!; it has a cool and easy interface. 2.) download the bios roms and put them in the "roms" folder in your mame32 plus! folder. 3.) download a couple games and also put them in the roms folder. 4.) open up the Mame32 Plus! interface and double click on which game you have installed and it should work. Also remember not to change the names of the zip files of the roms. And remember to NOT unzip the files; just put the whole zip file in the roms folder.

I had trouble getting Mame to work at first too, but when I finally figured it out it was well worth the trouble!

ColecoVision was probably the best arcade-looking game system of that time.
