    Lightbulb Low resource games for car pcs

    Now that I don't know what else to do on my car pc, can you guys recommend me some low resource but nice games for touchscreen or usb game pad? I know most of us are using via motherboards without AGP but still want to have some gaming entertainment for the passengers or while waiting in the car.

    cheers

    has some cool flash games,
    if you load each game the flash file is saved in your browsers cache all you need to do is find it and copy it then you can play the game when you are off line and fullscreen

    FYI just in case, the file extension you need to search for is .swf
    just plug *.swf in your search (with the *) and you'll see all the .swf files on your computer.

    How about a Mame emulator and buckets of roms. You can play all your favourite cheesy arcade classics that you grew up with.

    so many options.. I just spend a few minutes on mousebreaker.com thanks. but I dont think the games are good enough, most controls require keyboard keys and although we could map the keys of our controlers etc.. too much hassle.. I want to look into the mame emulators. Can u please give more information? I will choose Mame because I think these games were designed for game pads rather than keyboard and would need only 1 mapping for all games. am i right?

    Start Here, Mame home page.
    Roms you will need to locate yourself as they are generally ripped into code, from commercial cabinet rom boards.
