Re: MAME Cheats Help Desk

Hi Hierophant,

Thanks for solving this. Everything you experienced applies to 0.139u1 (I checked it out).

I'm disappointed that the cheat is effectively useless, due to not being able to connect any attacks...but I'm happy that I'm no longer wondering about it!

Thanks again for your help.

Matt

Re: MAME Slow

Hi all, I realise this thread must be getting tedious but I still need your help! Currently my "slow MAME problem" is coming and going intermittently - without any identifiable reason. Obviously MAME isn't the problem...but some setting or other program operating on my laptop is . The problem can oc...

Re: MAME Slow

Update I returned to my laptop an hour or so ago - to try and solve the problem...inexplicably the problem no longer exists! I haven't taken any actions to solve the problem...could the problem have solved itself...if the graphics card's drivers auto-updated? (the laptop was connected to the intern...

Re: MAME Slow

Hi all, I have tried to follow Incito's two tips: * Check where the laptops resources are being used up * Check what the video card settings are Unfortunately I don't know how to do either. I wonder if someone on this board could provide some "beginner" instructions - or perhaps point me towards a Y...

Re: MAME Slow

Hi Incito,

Thanks for your comments.

Is there a way I can reduce processes that may be eating up the laptop's resources?

What should the video/graphics card be set to for MAME?

I will take a look at these things tonight (11 hours from now).

Thanks,

Matt P

MAME Slow

Hi there, I've recently bought a new laptop and now MAME is running too slow - distorting the sound and game play. I've been using mame0154b but also tried the newest version: mame0159b - I experience the same problem using both versions. For all intents and purposes my new laptop is superior to the...

Re: USB Hub - 4 Players Simultaneous

Hi all, Thanks for your replies Incito. I bought a new hub from eBay for $3 including postage - it arrived in the mail within 3 business days. It worked immediately and consistently. Now that I can play 4 players simultaneous again - I'm not too concerned about what was wrong with the other hub...I'...

Re: USB Hub - 4 Players Simultaneous

Thanks for your reply Incito. I used a little patience (not easy for me!) and played around with the hub for a while. I can't say why - but all of a sudden the devices were recognised, drivers were installed and I was able to map the buttons on all four controllers in MAME! Trouble is, just as soon ...

USB Hub - 4 Players Simultaneous

Hi all, For some time I have been happily enjoying 4 player simultaneous MAME games, with a few old friends... We had been using 4 USB controllers, connected to a laptop which has 4 USB inputs. Problem is I recently bought a new laptop - with only 2 USB inputs! I borrowed a Ritmo USB 2.0 - 7 port hu...
