Okay, I need your help... I am new to this! This post is in a process work flow method.
I figure if I can figure out one method from start to finish on how to do this, others will be about the same method or process. So if you can help me with one instance, I can do it again with little issues.
Okay, I want to play a classic video game. For example, I want to play Pac-Man. I know I need an emulator and the ROM. I am running Windows 7 on my home computer. I am using the arcade emulator version. Now, I download the emulator M.A.M.E. ("MAME 0.140 sources in self-extracting 7zip format (Windows only)") Website for Pac-Man: http://home.online.no/~mrroboto/pacmania/the-emulators/the-roms.htm
Website for M.A.M.E.: http://mamedev.org/release.html
The MAME file is: mame0140s.exe ("Source Code") Since it is an EXE file, I figure I can download it for my Windows operating system. Now I click on the file and I get the file read to extract. (Interesting, the file is an EXE file, but I have to "extract it"?????) Anyways, I do, and I get a series of files and folders on my desktop. I see I have folders called, "docs', and "src", and files called, "makefile" and "whatsnew". So I am looking for a Windows installer file and all I see are text files and some odd files. Now, I am lost!!! :o I have looked at some text files in the 2 folders and I see copyrights, new features, and license details. NOW WHAT DO I DO? I'M LOST!
I'll stop here for now... I work with the ROM issue afterwards...
Please reply. Please help me from this point with details on instructions on what I need to do.
