Jukebox Arcade 1.3.7 -

Checkout the Windows 8/RT version here

A MAME Arcade Cabinet Music Jukebox and mp3 player

The new 1.3 version is finally here. I've had many people asking for features, and I was able to get just about everything everyone asked for into this new and exciting version. I have completely redone the skin engine to accommodate some new controls, implemented a much nicer default skin, added many, many new options and improved the visualization integration.

If you like my software, please donate.

  • Lots of little internal tweaks to allow the program to compile in VS-2008.

  • Removed “automatic” associations for files and CD’s

  •  Changed default settings and default media path
  •  Fixed bug with visualization where visualization wouldn't go away at end of play
