    But will it work?

    Hi all, After playing with the demo of GameEx, I have a few questions before becoming a lifetime member. Some background. I designed a custom interface for my MAME cabinet using ActionScript 3 and C#. It displays a video on startup, then jumps into a simple menu system. Each 'folder' ( using GameEx terminology ) on my system has a static background, and a random mp3 file plays when it is loaded. Each menu is read from XML files and must be hand edited when new roms or emulators are added. If the menu sits idle for a set amount of time, the mp3 is stopped and a random video is played. If the video finishes or a button is pressed, we jump back to the menu we just left, playing a new random mp3. Eventually, an 'Item' ( rom ) is selected, the game plays, and we return to the launching menu once again. There are also some digital IO signals generated that can be generated at times to control cabinet lighting. This was done by embedding Flash callbacks in the movie clips, telling me when to turn on / off the relay switches. I also check for a special button sequence during the startup video that puts the game into 'adult mode'. This adds the 'R' rated mp3s / videos to the random queue, and prevents kids from learning new vocabulary. I would like to be able to customize the environment as described above, but rely on the GameEx database and internet updates on the 'back end' so I can focus on the interface. In general, I just need to be able skin the beast to match my cabinet's theme. And so I ask you, the experienced GameEx user / developer - WILL IT WORK? Thanks in advance for your input. -GB
