    ARCADE 32/64 0.213 are released. Download location: http://arcade.mameworld.info/ Changes: - Legend of Hero Tonma (Bootleg) - lohtb - is now working [wonder199999] - Saving of sliders is fixed - Graphic glitch at start of sengoku2 is fixed

    Call me crazy, but this diff is the cause of the crash. Left panel, your STORE1 source, right panel, official MAME source. Filename: GENIE.LUA I spent an hour in analyzing all the differences between the two sources and this is what appears to be relevant. Though I compiled your STORE1 source applying the changes and no more crashes in TOKI. I want to do some futher test before, but I guess I found the solution to the problem. Further news from me tomorrow or maybe next monday. Have a nice weekend!

    I guess that the support for saving overclock has been dropped out during the recent big change in internal UI code made by an official MAME Developer. I don't know if Robert will be able (or better will have the time) to re-implement it.

    I've got olds100a to work, this one-line hack has been added to Arcade for the next release.

    My two cents are that maybe it would be better make an HBARCADE build, with all the arcade-only hacks supported by HBMAME developed using the ARCADE GUI code. I cannot help because I'm lack of time due to my real life job and sincerely also because I'm not interested. Though I have no objections. Good luck with the neogeo-decrypted driver.

    The person who made the change in Mame isn't finished yet, however if things stay as they are now, then I agree we should drop all support (reading and writing) of plugin.ini

    Yes you are right. I'll work on that now. The reason it worked before is because the 2nd and subsequent folder was totally ignored in the SW Files tab. When that was fixed, seems this other bug appeared.

    I know that the hopes are idle, but maybe we've waited the reunion of MAME classic, MAME Home Brew and Final Burn Alpha (in the face of all Non-MAME plats) into the united emulator with ARCADE / MAMEUIFX capabilities and netplay. The one great Arcade Universe. (Yeah, I know, I've already written that earlier...) No one forbids to hope, eh? ?

    You might want to add a couple of changes in this piece of code at line 4865 in WINUI.CPP, to ensure that the TreeView repainting after the View-->Show Folders menu action doesn't show garbage: void ToggleShowFolder(int folder) { int current_id = GetCurrentFolderID(); SetWindowRedraw(hWndList, false); SetShowFolder(folder, !GetShowFolder(folder)); ResetTreeViewFolders(); SelectTreeViewFolder(current_id); SetWindowRedraw(hWndList, true); } change to: void ToggleShowFolder(int folder) { int current_id = GetCurrentFolderID(); SetWindowRedraw(hWndList, false); SetWindowRedraw(hTreeView, false); SetShowFolder(folder, !GetShowFolder(folder)); ResetTreeViewFolders(); SelectTreeViewFolder(current_id); SetWindowRedraw(hTreeView, true); SetWindowRedraw(hWndList, true); }

    Ok, I tested the ARCADE 0.212 from AntoPisa site, the problem is there too. At which version do you switched the GCC compiler? I have serious feeling that it could be the problem. EDIT: 0.209 is where the problem starts. Build Tools were updated around that period or at least so it's stated at Buildtools section of MAMEDEV at GitHub.
  27. 1 point
    If ARCADE32 is fine, I doubt it could be one of the various hacks. Also, I don't recall any hack related to Seibu Sound Hardware, which seems to be the culprit. Maybe a GCC compiler issue? Maybe something corrupted the source code during compiling process (very unlikely, but who knows) ? I'll try to compile an ARCADE64 with my GCC 7.2.0 (I never upgraded it) but I cannot give a timeline because I'm busy, so it could require some days.
  28. 1 point
    I get the same problem, but only on ARCADE64. 32-bit is ok, MAMEUI64 is ok, MAME is ok. I wonder if one or another of the hacks is causing a problem. I don't really know where to start looking (or have the time), so I'll wait to see if anyone else can figure it out.
  29. 1 point
    Hmmm... It seems there's something serious here. I tried just for curiousity other games with similar hardware to Seibu Cup Soccer (e.g. Toki) and they crashes the emulator too. The usual step to reproduce is launching the game, let it run for some seconds, then exit and relaunch it. Or launch a random game, then exit and launch e.g. Toki. Usually at the "Loading Complete" message it should freeze for a second and then the emulator closes itself completely. Analyzing "VERBOSE.TXT" all games when crashes are at this point: Starting palette ':palette' Starting Speaker ':mono' (missing dependencies; rescheduling) Starting YM3812 OPL2 ':ymsnd' I'll do some tests at home with my local build and with ARCADE64 0.213 on Windows 7. Maybe it's OS related, who knows.

    There are a lot of games where official MAME raster implementation in NeoGeo is off by a couple of lines, e.g. Zed Blade, Garou, View Point intro logo, etc. etc. If you can run a side-by-side with Zed Blade you'll immediately see what I mean in Level 1, where there are 3 different layers of scroll at different speed. The hack code also "fixes" some bugs present on original hardware that are present in official MAME. If you wish to remove all the modified code there's no problem, but say " I cannot see anything wrong with Mame's standard rendering " it's a bold claim. LOL. Sengoku2 is a special case, where the wrong MAME implementation works as expected and the hacked code fails.

    Actually, checked more, it is a bug in Arcade. You have to enable the plugins by right-clicking the game, Properties, going to Miscellaneous II, and choosing the ones you want from the list. Then it will work for you.

    New version 0.212.A uploaded, tell me if it fixes the problem (which never occurred on my setup). So, to get technical... I have a .\plugin.ini which is an old version from 3 years ago. I also had ini\plugin.ini which was 3 bytes and therefore corrupt. It seems the old version prevented the error message, even though it's a useless file. So, implanted mamesick's code, now ini\plugin.ini was much larger and no longer corrupt. Now, Arcade saves the settings in ini\mame.ini, rather than plugins.ini. On exit, plugins.ini was found to be data 1 and everything else 0, regardless of the mame.ini settng, and regardless of what was there before. I don't know if this is ok or not. So download and test it, see if there's any plugin bugs.

    Looks like there is a bug in PLUGIN.INI creation at startup.... Fresh install, PLUGIN.INI is created but it is empty. And so it is when you exit the emulator. It is saved again but it's an empty file. In WINUI_OPTS.CPP around line 1849: while (iter.next(pluginpath)) { opts.scan_directory(pluginpath,false); } Looking at how it is used in CLIFRONT.CPP should be: while (iter.next(pluginpath)) { osd_subst_env(pluginpath, pluginpath); opts.scan_directory(pluginpath, true); } I don't know if it is correct fix, but I used the code above in my source and PLUGIN.INI is correctly created.

    Couple times I've found old NVRAM to cause game not functioning for example old NVRAM didn't work for seibu SPI games. As for cfg everything should be fine. I never seen old cfg to make problems with games.

    Oh no please don't kill ARCADE it's the only exc. that doesn't include all the non arcade roms & if i knew how to compile an exc. I would do it each month. Mamesick you can always maintain ARCADE under a different name & if I got shown how to do things properly i will help when i can & i'm pretty sure others will too.

    I'm not programmer, I've just learn to modified some part of mame code to suit my needs. If I'll find some broken stuff that I can repair and I'm using in my custom build then I'll try to fix it.

    I got here today because I decided to drag out and dust off my old Commodore 128D. Very first computer I ever owned (1988 or 89..i forget). Sadly my 1902 monitor no longer works. So I am using a TV now. I found that one of my disks has errors for an old fav game. I found an emulator online and thought, how great would it be to write that disk again from the same software I found online for the emulator. And sure enough, I found out how to build a XM1541 cable to write from the PC to the 1541 disk drive. I am still waiting on the diodes to come thru the mail to finish building the cable. Then to understand more about the emulator (CCS64) I am using..I found this site. Nice to see so many ppl still using computers old school and having fun doing it. Keep on keepin on!

    Long ago, this forum ( 1emulation.com ) had an interactive attack system, where you could shoot, bomb, or otherwise maim fellow members for a short period of time. However eventually something went wrong, and it was removed. Now I'm happy to say, the attack system has returned. Previously I had made it to about level 2000, but now we start over. As I write this, I'm at level 7. Here's hoping some of the other former players return to do battle again!

    Hey thats pretty cool! Perhaps that explains how that Ramstein song back when sounded like the electricity spark was going through my ears! The song was released somewhere around 96. Wish I could remember what it was called. I wonder if that was 3rd channel technology?

    Way back in 1977, when I purchased my first (and only) stereo amp, who would have thought there there was so much to stereo? The amp is still my main amp, a Realistic SA-800. It has two sets of speaker outputs, A and B. There is also a "Quatravox" button, which disconnects the earth return of the B speakers, while leaving the speakers still joined. This produces a rather weak "3rd channel" effect. I have expanded on this, to produce truly amazing sound. Firstly, get yourself a large, sensitive, midrange speaker. I'm using an old guitar amp, the speaker is disconnected from the guitar amp output, and connected to the SA-800. One wire goes to the Red Left terminal, the other wire goes to the Red Right terminal on the amp. Since it is a midrange speaker, the Midrange tone control is used to vary its volume. What does it do? Imagine you're listening to a normal stereo. Sounds kinda flat, doesn't it. Now put your headphones on. Now, extra sounds and effects seemingly materialise inside your head. It is now a "3-D" experience. Where do these extra sounds come from? Since the headphones didn't make them, they must have been there the whole time. Now, imagine you could get these sounds and translate them from imagined to real. That is what the "3rd channel" does. The extra sounds are now audible on your stereo, without needing headphones. How does it work? Basically, it outputs the stereo portions of the music, while omitting the mono portions. Thus, the lead singer disappears, but the echoes of his voice can be heard. Normally you can't hear the echoes, because his main voice is so much louder. The same sort of thing happens with the music. Instruments which play on both channels are removed, leaving the softer special effects and other previously unheard things. How to align it? Firstly connect the extra speaker. Find a good place to put it. I have it midway between the left and right speakers, however if you have the room, it probably should go directly behind you. Now, you need to adjust the tone controls thus: Treble at max, midrange at middle, some bass but not too much. Now, we need to align the balance control. Set your system to receive an AM radio station (or some other mono source). Switch off the main speakers, and carefully adjust the balance for minimum volume in the 3rd channel. The control should be close to the centre of its range. If it isn't, you may have a problem with your amp or wiring. Now, switch to an FM station which has someone talking. Again, the presenter's voice should be cancelled. If you can hear echoes, this is ok, it means he has a stereo microphone. You need to cancel his main voice, but keep the echoes. Make sure the setting stays constant while changing the volume and tone controls. Now, turn on the main speakers, and find some stereo music, either on FM or on a CD. Recommended music is most stuff from 1968 to 1985. Unfortunately, after 1985, it seems the engineers no longer took 3rd channel into consideration, and there was no longer much of an effort by musicians to put a lot of work into making a good song. What else? The 3rd channel is a useful tool when you want to rip music from LPs or other old media. Ripping from cassette: Firstly we need to align the cassette player for correct balance. If you do make adjustments and mess up, I take utterly no responsibility. It's all on your head. Ok, open the cassette player, and find the adjustments for output level and meter readings. Play a good-quality, commercial tape. Adjust the heads for maximum treble. Switch off the main speakers. Adjust the level controls so the balance is correct, that is, the main singer is cancelled. Lastly, make sure the meters indicate roughly equal readings. Stop the tape, and put the player back together. The other thing to check is if the roller is worn. If it is, the singers voice will not stay cancelled, but seem to swing in and out of cancellation, In severe cases, the tone will change, and perhaps the tape will be damaged. You may need to replace the rubber wheel which presses the tape against the capstan. Ripping from a record player: Make sure the needle (stylus) is not worn. Make sure you set the weight for the correct amount. Make sure the player runs at a constant speed (replace the large rubber belt if not). Keep it on a flat surface, and free from all vibrations, including the speakers and footsteps. Make sure both channels are working. Clean the dust and static from the record with the proper cloth cleaners. Since there are no audio controls, rip the record, and use your wav editor to balance the channels in the 3rd channel. For best quality, leave rips as wav files. This way, nothing is lost. For data transmission, you will obviously want to convert to MP3. Choose at least 256k. Have a listen to the result. If the 3rd channel produces strange sounds, something like running water or odd clinking noises, the MP3 is no good. Use another MP3 conversion program. How to determine if music is mono or stereo? Previously impossible to be certain, this is now extremely simple to do. Play the music. Switch off the main speakers. If it's mono, there will be little or no output. Stereo will produce quite a bit of sound. With practice, your ears will become attuned to the difference, and it only takes a matter of seconds to determine. How about "false" stereo? This was a cheapskate technique used in the 60s. basically, the bass went into one channel, while the high sounds went into the other. If you listen to the 3rd channel, while adjusting the balance, turn the balance to the left gives the left channel, turn to the right gives the right channel. Listen for the difference. Note: You can't cancel anything with false stereo. If you have any further questions, post them here or in the "Music" section of the forum. Happy listening!
