Re: Smash tv for retropie?

Please refer to the RetroPie documentation:

https://retropie.org.uk/docs/MAME/

That indicates the appropriate ROM set version for each of the different supported emulators.

Re: Galaga 2 player but wont let me use 2 ps3 controller

Please look at this image of an original Galaga control panel: https://www.arcade-museum.com/images/118/118124210969.jpg Even though there is a 2 player start button, we can see that there is only one set of game controls. This is how some really old games were made. In a 2 player game of Galaga, th...

Re: Billy Mitchell - Banned from Twin Galaxies for using Mame

I've been following that news on YouTube, too. Same deal with Todd Rogers earlier this year. Google him and you'll find plenty of articles and videos.

It's sad that they decided to bolster their fragile egos with this fraud, but it's good to see that TG is taking serious action based on the evidence.

Re: MAME OS X Roms not working

I'm on PC, so I can't help directly with MAME on the Mac. With a quick Google search, though, I found a couple of videos which might help. The second one in particular addresses the black screen problem: 1. How to get M.A.M.E on Mac OS X! App Install & ROM Setup! - https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=EO...

Re: New to MAME

There was some faffing about involved with figuring that stuff out, but most of my time was spent laying on couch and watching telly while MAME did its thing.

Re: New to MAME

I had some spare time to investigate this idea of separating MAME CHDs into their own folder. It's actually easy to do, but it's quite literally a massive waste of time (more on that later) and I wouldn't recommend it to anyone. What I checked should be easy enough for any interested reader to repea...

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. Whew! Sorry, but I don't think there is much interest or suppo...

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 ...
