DADS FME forum has been retired.


DADsFME first appeared in 2002 as a bog standard HTML website and was put together by Andrew McLaren (aka DAD) to showcase new fruit machine layouts for Wizard's MFME (Multi-Fruit-Machine-Emulator) and to comment on the FME (Fruit Machine Emulation) scene in general. It was fairly bleak site with just a news page and links to other FME related sites.

In 2004 with the assistance of another scene member (Cheese), DADsFME was upgraded to a full discussion forum using SMF (Simple Machines Forum) software. Unlike other similar sites, DADsFME never had moderators, instead all staff (DAD, Cheese, Stanmarsh14, Geddy & Altharic) had full Administrator privileges and helped to run the forum for the next nine years.

Nicknamed DAD's by its members, the forum always tried to stay on topic, providing a place where layout creators could post their work, where new resources could be made available and members could discuss, and in many cases argue about FME.

In its 9 years as a proper forum, DADsFME amassed 6223 members, had 33,715 posts in 3,666 topics and managed a reasonable 7,922,803 page views. Top posters names include - DAD, Geddy, fme6, Tommy c, stanmarsh14, Mort, Daryl, MAGIK, Johnnyafc and Ady

In September 2013 DADsFME was withdrawn as interest in FME had declined to a point where only a handful of scene members were still active. It was felt by DAD that it was the right time to close and leave Fruit Machine Emulation in the hands of Duplu's excellent site - Fruit-Emu, the only site now remaining dedicated to what was once a thriving scene.
