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...

Re: Zen of Arcade 1CC

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.

Re: New to MAME

I've been overhauling the MAME FAQs for most of the night. The 'ROMs must stay zipped' bit has been reworded to 'MAME is capable of running ROMs in zip format so it's best to leave them that way to save space' . Apart from some other small adjustments, new questions for MAME Devices / QSound have al...

Re: New to MAME

Ah OK, makes sense then if he was demonstrating how to add missing ROMs, but yeah, zipping the file back up again afterwards is obviously best. No worries, the FAQ is meant to make things a little less confusing for newbies, so I'm grateful for the question. Yes, sound device files such as qsound.zi...

Re: Zen of Arcade 1CC

I thought the coolest speedrun strat was around 4:50 where he intentionally takes a hit and falls through a huge chunk of the stage during the post-hit invincibility frames.

Re: New to MAME

Since this morphed into a help topic anyway, I've moved it from 'The Lobby' to 'MAME Help' and changed the name from 'Hello' to 'New to MAME'. * * * * * OK, I'll try to fill in a couple of gaps here. Leaving ROMs zipped was the default for a very long time and is still a good baseline behaviour to h...
