Thanks, Thulsa. As I recall, Mohman seems to have read the FAQ and already had success with some Neo Geo games in 0.119.

Mohman, I also merged your topic here since I'm guessing it's gonna be a 0.119 compatibility issue. Better to keep any info that comes to light in one convenient location.

To quickly answer your question without having searched Metal Slug 5 (MS5) myself yet, the way to solve any compatibility issues in 0.119 is first, make sure the game you're after appears in the Working folder, which MS5 does. Doing that eliminates any fruitless searching. After that, you can be hopeful that a good hard search will reveal a site with a 0.119 compatible version of the game. Failing that, my combination fix - http://www.mameaddicts.com/phpBB3/viewt ... 3078#p3078 - might be useful as a last resort.

Anyway, at least you narrowed down the search a bit already. I'll let you know if I have any luck with it. :hello:

Not having much luck with MS5 so far. Every version I've tried in 0.119 comes up with the same common error. The 268-m1.bin file is always the incorrect length where 0.119 expects it to be 65,536 bytes and the file ends up being 524,288 bytes instead.

Heh... I'll be darned. Thought I'd try something different. Even though the 268-m1.bin error will fail Audit and prevent MS5 from showing up in 0.119's Available list, the game is still fully playable if you launch it from the All Games list instead.

:V:

Edit - Further info: If anyone wants a version of MS5 that will show in Available for MAME32 Plus! Plus! 0.119 then get the one named Metal Slug 5 (JAMMA PCB) from coolrom.

i have problem with MAME Plus Plus 0.119 version
i was playing UMK3 without any problem over year on this emulator and never changed settings
i have screens for best settings on my PC and i use that always, it was awesome
on MAME32k 64 it had some sound noise, but on 0.119 it was perfect
few days ago i loaded rom and when i play it has lag and sound cuts, i downloaded again my configured version but it's same
i think it must be some computer problem but i don't know how to solve it, i reinstalled video card driver, cleaned junk
please help me if you can, thank you

Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 is working fine for me in 0.119. It does sound like something changed in your PC setup, rather than a compatibility issue. Maybe check in Task Manager and see if there is still any new junk running in the background that could be depriving MAME of CPU resources.

I solved problem, i tried everything but everything was same bad
yesterday my PC turned off automatically, so there was "high temperature" message on screen
i opened case and there was dirt between cooler and radiator, so it was processor high temperature problem
i cleaned it and UMK3 RUNS PERFECTLY, so if anyone will have same problem, that's solution, MAME32++0.119 has no problem at all ^_^ :party:

Oh good, thanks for the news, Slayergio. Yeah, I was cleaning inside my PC recently and found a thick carpet of dust between the main fan and the heatsink. No wonder the fan was always going full blast whenever the computer was busy. All it was doing was cooling down the dust layer! Now that it's clean I never notice any fan noise.
