This is an update to Final Burn Legends originally ported by nes6502. Many core components have been updated to the latest PC version of FBA and it also uses elements from FBANext by lantus and code from the skilled community over at the Neosource forums. Many new ROMsets have been added and several games are now working that either didn't before or had issues that are now fixed. In addition, this release contains Xbox-optimised PGM drivers by iq_132 and a new default skin by Neil222. Updated DATs are included in the tools/ folder of the release package. If you have any questions or comments post them here. Please see notes below the changelog for downloads, installation and other important information.

- Cabinet marquees can now be displayed on the ROM browser screen.
- Option to toggle video preview sound.
- New default skin, Blue Fire Arcade. (by Neil222)
- White screen issue with image viewer is fixed in default skin. (by Neil222)
- Screenshots and marquees are available to download in a separate
'FBL Extras' package. I STRONGLY recommend downloading this as it improves
the look and feel of the interface immensely.
This is NOT an upgrade install and a clean installation is highly recommended. If you simply try to copy the files over an earlier version you will most likely experience problems. Game specific configs can easily be copied across from a previous installation. Please only report issues if you are running a clean install.
When setting the default screen size using the new feature it's important to keep in mind that vertical games will rotate your settings by 90 degrees, so the horizontal width will become the vertical height when rotated etc. Just play with the settings until you find a happy medium that fills your screen both ways.
A good note from the original author is worth repeating:
RELEASE THE SOURCE! Don't take mine or anyone else's work and not release the source. Everyone should get to benefit and future developers should be able to improve the code whenever current development stops.
Unfortunately xbins is still offline to uploads so this is something of a pre-release. Below are links to the marquee and screenshot pack, and the sourcecode. Due to forum rules I am unable to provide a link to the compiled binaries however if you're able to use the other links you can find the emulator package using 5VEESO4A. This is only a temporary measure and I will upload the release to xbins as soon as I am able to.
