Allow me to say OH crap!!! My MAME is MAMEPLUS!0.130. Apparently this is the thing that caused all this malfunction. Cos although I follow these steps the desync is still present.

Uhm... OK elias, so it might help if you try the same version of MAMEPlus! as me then. When and where did you get MAMEPlus! 0.130 anyway? The MAMEPlus! site only has versions 0.134 and 0.135 hosted at the moment.

Nos, doesn't that guy you emailed realise he's impeding our enjoyment of MAME!?

He's probably just some noob who got lucky and has never experienced our error message problem.


Anyway, as long as I still get to PLAY the games online, then I don't really care about recording them online anymore to be honest.

Yeah mate, I'm over it for now. The AVI recording problems in MAME32 + + 0.119 just seem insurmountable.

I know of an old way to do this thing but it involves messing around with .mng files instead, which are a real hassle compared to AVI. Maybe one day I'll get really bored and try to figure it out...

Well to be honest I DLed the MAME you told me but when I started the app (mamepgui.exe) it showed me my PC folders. Apparently this MAME depends on the MAME version you are using (personally 0.130). So that's why my MAMEPlus is the version 0.130

That's weird, I've never had any MAME do that before. They always work independently in their own folders.

Did a quick test for Hierophant as he was having issues with his Raiden video recording.

I recorded this test in mame v119 and used sony vegas (Hiero is currently using windows movie maker) and it came out fine for me.

I kept the same settings that I used for the 3rd strike test video that I posted earlier in this thread.

EDIT: Test vids removed from YouTube and so removed from this thread as well.
