Traveling with the Acer Aspire One

I'll be traveling over the next few days with work and there is plenty of traveling on the train involved, so I thought I would use my Acer Aspire One to provide some entertainment whilst I'm away.

I've filled 2 usb flash disks with videos and with VLC player they play really well on the Acer, to keep the audio to myself I'll be using the brilliant Panasonic RP-HT225 headphones to listen to the videos.

So along with the free Wi-fi on most trains these days, I should have more then enough to kill some time.

Xmame not up to date - some modern games don't work

Following on from this post - I just thought I would share with you that Xmame is based on a version of Mame which is a couple of years old.

This isn't a big problem as Xmame still runs 1000's of games but a few small number of recent games (like Street Fighter 3) won't run.

It's not an issue for me as I really the SF2 series but I'll look to see if there is a later version of MAME that will run well on the Acer Aspire One.
