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.

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...

Oh yeah wow, I have to agree with you now. That strat happens so fast I don't think I fully appreciated what was going on there until you explained it. Man, that's so cool.
