  • Additional Details:
Arcade Music Box 2 is an HTPC-like jukebox interface that also supports videos and netradio and was designed to work with limited controls in a windows-based arcade cabinet. It has been designed with MAMEWAH as its reference and will act very similar in use to it.
It was also designed to use Dir Mask and File Mask to avoid ID3 tags and the problems inherent with bad tagging in large music collections. Using this method, it will check how your collection is used across your hard drive. If you would prefer to use ID3v1 and/or ID3v2 tags, Arcade Music Box 2 still IS capable of using them.
Arcade Music Box can also be used like MS Explorer (no database used, relies on cache files instead), but is only used full screen mode, i.e. no signs of Windows.
Arcade Music Box separates both albums and singles, as well as utilizing videos and netradio. In this way, your structured album collection can work seamlessly alongside your singles (such as those you may have downloaded), video, and any netradio you may enjoy by using their own folder path.
BONUS GAME: Arcade Music Box 2 has a "name that song" game.

NOTE: Arcade Music Box is not update anymore, because lose 
      of the source (mostly). Instead I may went to create a 
      completly fresh jukebox application in the next year.
