Re: New to MAME

Oh, and about 'Software List ROMs". I believe those are for MESS, that being the home consoles and other related items which used to be separate from MAME, but which have now all been lumped in together along with the gambling machines, as well. Whew! Sorry, but I don't think there is much interest ...

Re: New to MAME

While leaving a CHD in an unzipped ROM folder is fine, just keep this in mind - zipping all of that up again later is a bad idea. CHDs are already compressed and are intended to be run as is. Running a CHD from a zip will impair performance to varying degrees as your system tries to read the entire ...

Re: Help us grow our Twitch Channel

I've just been watching the replay of your latest stream, Castlevania: Harmony of Dissonance. A couple of cool things caught my attention: 1. You know how scanline effects normally look like garbage on Twitch? Well, the GBA scanlines actually worked out fine in all three of Twitch's viewing modes; d...

Re: New to MAME

Sorry, but normal members can't edit their own posts. However, they can delete their posts within half an hour of submission, so with a quick bit of copy-pasting there sort of is a workaround. Kaillera MAME lives here: http://www.kaillera.com/download.php We are using the P2P client instead of the d...

Re: plus plus slow.

That's cool, I also use the same version. Besides deleting a few CHDs I never use to save space, I basically have full ROM set for it and there is no lag when scrolling the game lists. I'm pretty sure that my 0.119 had a major meltdown sometime in the distant past and got corrupted beyond repair. Th...

Re: New to MAME

6.) I checked out the website you linked and I see that The BIOS & ROMs are both v0.185, but the CHDs are v0.180 and the Samples are v1.181. Will these all work together even though the CHDs and Samples are different versions? Also, I notice that their ROM sizes (of the games I've checked out) are ...

Re: New to MAME

http://mameaddicts.com/phpBB3/viewtopic.php?p=17987#p17987 That's your earlier post about MAME versions and builds. Firstly, there is a MAMEUI archive over at progetto-SNAPS: http://www.progettosnaps.net/mameui/ Now, even though I tend to steer clear of MAMEUI these days, mainly because of the bloat...

Re: New to MAME

Thanks, Fennec. As the name suggests, a FAQ is not meant to be a comprehensive encyclopaedia of MAME, it's there to serve as a basic resource for covering some of the most common pitfalls a MAME newbie might encounter and help get them up and running quickly and playing some games. The stuff I've in...
