  1. Letting everyone know, that as from this commit, https://github.com/mamedev/mame/commit/9ce44fa048793de5e14d1e7af98e8b5ca148d0f3 MAME and all its derivatives will no longer function on XP. The absolute minimum, even with the 32-bit builds, will be Vista.

    ARCADE 0.244

    You need to read the note in the first post.

    ARCADE 0.244

    It was, because I couldn't get the game to run. But I figured it out now, so it will be back next month.
  4. MESS, MESSUI and MAMEUI 0.244 are released. https://messui.1emulation.com/ https://arcade.mameworld.info/messui MESSUI has had all the MESS systems added back, except those that freeze or crash. After this, the major reason for crashes will be the use of unacceptable floppy disk images which instead of giving a harmless message, can bring the whole thing down. Unfortunately this behaviour is outside of my control. Also, there's been the occasional request for GCC 10.1, which it seems has generally become unavailable. I've added a download link on the above sites for you to get 10.1 should you wish to compile your own MESSUI, MAMEUI or HBMAMEUI. The command-line MESS or HBMAME should (in theory) build with the current mamedev GCC 11.2 . We don't recommend anything later than the mamedev GCC, as there seems to be some strange bugs in the newest versions.

    ARCADE 0.244

    ARCADE64 0.244 is released. Download location: https://arcade.mameworld.info/ There's been some cleaning up for this month. All the broken stuff that snuck in has been removed. Also, more poker and mahjong games have been deactivated. These may return next month depending on the results of the survey (which closes on June 15). If you haven't voted, do it now! For those who compile their own, the new file arcade.txt defines which sources to include - much like messui.txt does for messui. You'll need to update your build script, or you'll get lots of link errors.

    He's put in a fix for perfrman, can someone check it? I'm not at home currently.

    ARCADE64 0.243

    Seems like the responsible person has taken a business trip and may not get back in time. So, if perfrman is important to you, one of you could come up with a temporary TESTED fix, and I can add it to Arcade during the freeze period.

    Yes that is correct. Mechanical games can never be played properly and so will never be included.

    Letting you know this poll will close on June 15. In the meantime I've gone through the list and removed most of the broken stuff that had sneaked in over the last few years. I've also removed most of the mahjong, poker etc so you can see what it would be like if you said no to everything. The June release (0.245) will take the vote into account, so many things may come back (depending on the voting results).
  13. @hexaae your bug report has been closed. If you use the -verbose switch in MAME, you'll see a line where it says that shaders have been disabled because prescale != 1. In other words, it's by design. I don't blame you for not knowing, because it isn't documented anywhere, and in the GUI builds there's no notification anyway.

    I mentioned this to the responsible person and he said he's hoping to get it fixed before the next release. So let's see if that works out.
  15. Before submitting bugs to mame devs, make sure your problem can be reproduced on standard MAME as available at mamedev.org . Submitting bugs that don't exist in normal MAME is not allowed.
  16. Just tried it now with the latest, and it worked. I right-clicked on a game (Captain Commando), choose Properties, Display, Video Mode - choose OpenGL Then in OpenGL/BGFX, click on Enable GLSL. In OpenGL shaders CRT Geom HQ was already selected. Click Apply, OK, start game it works.

  18. Arcade64 used to be known as MAMEUIFX, and the author at that time removed the facility. That is why it does nothing now. You can set a different background colour for each pane though, it looks pretty good when you do that.

    Arcade Survey

    I've added a 4th question. Please updates your replies to include your thought on it.
  20. Robert

    Arcade Survey

    I need to know your thoughts on certain game categories, should they be included or not. I'll leave this running for a few months. 1. Should we include Mahjong games (yes or no). An example is Idol Mahjong Final Romance 2. 2. Should we include Poker games (yes or no). These have 5 cards from the standard card suite (Hearts, Spades, etc), and you bet on getting a pair or a full house, etc. 3. Should we include Fruit games (yes or no). These have 3 or more reels with pictures of fruit or Bell or Bar or 7. Certain combinations will give you a prize. 4. Should we include Pinball games (yes or no). Even though every pinball produces a red screen, the majority are coded up enough to be playable, if you know the right key combinations. There's only a display - being a mechanical device there's no playfield or anything like a real machine. Note that the filtering is done by source code. So if one game from the source is accepted, then everything from that source is accepted, even if it doesn't work. However, if one game crashes the emulator, then that source will never be accepted. Please give your opinions here and vote. In each question, the majority will get their way.

  22. MESS, MESSUI and MAMEUI 0.243 are released. https://messui.1emulation.com/ https://arcade.mameworld.info/messui Changes: - All previous reversions and associated hacks have been removed, all left-out bits are added back. - Documented all the needed alterations in another thread. - Some new software icons added, and some changed. - For the command-line MESS, fixed the annoying bios errors and associated files missing messages (for example, from the default UI, run a neogeo game followed by some other game would give a message about missing files)

  24. 7z will always be slower, because it doesn't have an internal directory. This stuff is all the same as MAME, I have no reason to change it.
  25. Oh, I forgot. I'll do it in a few hours. And you need to look for "tag243".
