Thanks guys :hello:

Hopefully that one can help us all out. If any confused newbies come along asking what's a CHD and stuff, just link 'em to the vid and go from there. As for finding CHDs - since there's no more romkeeper to make life easy I guess they can Google or torrent like everyone else these days.

Hey yeah, I should probably have an MA wiki page for all my MAME tute vids. Uhm... it's been a while, Chris. I just make a new page and let you know when it's done so you can add it to the front page, right?

:confused:

EDIT: Nevermind, I see we got one page for all of our tutorial vids on the MA wiki now. :smile:

Update to MAME CHD Info and How To video info.

I got a request from YouTuber in my vid comments to add a list of recommended MAME CHD games to my vid info. I decided on a better solution to try and avoid spoon feeding and added this little guide instead:

Some other important things to realise about MAME CHD games. Many of them are still in preliminary emulation status and even though you may be able to download them somewhere, there is no way for them work in MAME until the emulation is more complete. The best way to check the emulation status of any game is at MAWS, the ultimate MAME database:

http://maws.mameworld.info/maws/

To call up a list of all the MAME parent roms that require a CHD, use the MAWS 'deluxe search' option. Then under 'resource type' select 'parents', and under 'CHD required' select 'yes'. Then hit 'search' to get the results.

Even so, once you have an idea of which games may or may not be worth downloading there aren't always any guarantees that a particular game will run properly on your system. Some games, like Gauntlet Dark Legacy for example, would require something approaching a super computer to run at full original performance. Others, like Street Fighter III 3rd Strike, will generally run fine even on an old P4 like mine, in spite of the cps3.c driver status still being classified as imperfect at the time of writing.

It's been quite a while since I last made a MAME tutorial on YouTube, but a recent discussion here - viewtopic.php?p=11947#p11947 - caught my interest, so I decided it was high time I stopped being so lazy and did something about it.
