    ARCADE 0.189

    @ Demoncatze, thanks for compiling it @ Robbberto, I tested it and everything works fine now. Thanks again for the fix.

    ARCADE 0.189

    Thank you for the fix, Robbberto. It would take a very long time to compile it myself on my old PC. So if someone with a modern PC would be kind enough to compile ARCADE32 and post a link to the download it would be appreciated.

    ARCADE 0.189

    I already have installed Microsoft Visual C++ 2015 Redistributable (x86) - 14.0.23026 I believe that is the most recent version available for Windows XP 32-bit.

    ARCADE 0.189

    Yes, I'm running SP3 on my XP. I have all windows updates installed except for .NET Framework 4. I intentionally chose not to install that because when it first got released by Microsoft it slowed down the boot time of my PC considerably. I'm not sure if Microsoft ever wind up fixing that issue, but I remember reading hundreds of complaints from users who were experiencing the same issue. And since I never came across a program that I used that needed .NET Framework 4, I never reinstalled it after I uninstalled it. I'm not sure if that's the reason why I'm receiving that error message. Is that why?

    I could not load the emulator. I got an error message stating: The procedure entry point wcscpy_s could not be located in the dynamic link library msvcrt.dll. (I'm using ARCADE32 on Win XP 32-bit.)

    ARCADE 0.188

    @ Robbberto, are you going to release ARCADE 0.188a like you did with MAMEUI 0.188a? Because that was a pretty significant bugfix. And also it would give us a chance to sniff out any other bugs before the v0.189 release.

    DAT viewing

    He's probably having the same problem that I reported. @ uvsthem, read this conversation http://www.1emulation.com/forums/topic/35856-arcade-0188/page-2

    I know, I agree. I'm hoping to get a top-of-the-line PC in a few months for Christmas. Thanks

    ARCADE 0.188

    The bug must have occurred after one of the last few MAME releases. I stopped playing games for a few months (hence, a few MAME releases) and when I returned I noticed the bug. I could download previous versions of ARCADE32 and test them to figure out the exact version if that would help. It appears that in regards to ARCADE, the ui.ini file is only utilized to display the External DAT View. There is no other use for that file in ARCADE other than for that. Is that correct? So if I just keep that file as a Read Only file then it shouldn't make that big a difference if the bug gets fixed or not.

    I did exactly what you did and the bug still occurs. I see you are using ARCADE64. I should have reminded you that I'm using Win XP 32-bit, hence ARCADE32. My DATs are kept here: "C:\MAME Support\DATs" And so, that's where I have my DATs pointed to. But after I close ARCADE32, the UI.ini config file automatically edits the path to the following: historypath "PX[]AME Support\DATs" That is what is causing the bug.

    The "External DAT View" is not working properly in ARCADE. I realized it was no longer being displayed. So I went to the Options > Directories and assigned it to where my DATs are kept, even though it showed that it was already assigned to the proper location. And then it worked. But once I close ARCADE and reload it, the External DAT View stops working again. I found a temporary workaround by manually customizing the UI.ini config file by setting it to Read Only.

    Also, I've known about the following bug in ARCADE for months but never gotten around to reporting it... If ARCADE is loaded. And one of your games is missing some files. And then you add the corresponding missing files to the game's zip. And then you right-click on the game and audit it. The ROM check will still say "NOT FOUND" and the game will still be displayed as unavailable. You have to close ARCADE and reload it and then right-click on the game again and audit it, then the ROM check will correctly say "AVAILABLE". I hope I explained this bug coherently.

    The parent ROMset "fantasy" does not exist in ARCADE. Instead, the parent ROMset in ARCADE for this game is "fantasyu". So somebody must have made a mistake naming this parent.

    ARCADE 0.180

    MAME 0.180 won't load when I have Direct3D enabled. But as I said, in ARCADE32 v0.180 the Direct3D works for me. So I guess the patch you added worked for me. Thanks! In case you're curious, here are my PC specs: Dell Dimension 4700 Series Intel Pentium 4 Processor 530 Supporting HT Technology 3.0 GHz 800 MHz FSB 1 MB L2 Cache 1 GB RAM Microsoft Windows XP 32-Bit Home Edition Service Pack 3 128 MB ATI Radeon X300 SE Sound Blaster Live! 24-Bit

    ARCADE 0.180

    Robbberto, I meant to ask you this a few weeks ago... With the release of ARCADE32 v 0.179, I had to switch the video mode from Direct3D to GDI because if I didn't it would crash since you explained that the MAME devs got rid of some of the code that allowed older video cards to run it in Direct3D. So I thought I was stuck with using GDI. But with the new release of ARCADE32 v0.180, I was delighted to see Direct3D is working for me again. So I'm just curious why is this? My video card: 128 MB ATI Radeon X300 SE

    ARCADE 0.179

    Okay, thank you for the explanation. (Btw, I wasn't arguing. I was just curious since I'm not knowledgeable in that kind of thing.)

    ARCADE 0.179

    My video card is a 128 MB ATI Radeon X300 SE In ARCADE32 Default Game Options > Video Mode, I get the following results: Auto = Crashes when loading a game Direct3D = Crashes when loading a game GDI = Works fine OpenGL = Works fine So if you say my video card is the problem, how come OpenGL works for me? Doesn't the OpenGL option mean it utilizes my video card?

    ARCADE 0.179

    ARCADE32 v0.179 is crashing when I try to load a game. So I decided to put the binary arcade32.exe in a fresh new directory all by itself and tried running a game. And it's still crashing when I try to load a game. So something is wrong. Please help. (Previous versions worked fine.) My OS is a Win XP 32-bit

    Artwork

    In honor of mamesick's work on MAMEUIFX, I suggest using mamesick's avatar as a graphic in the splash screen. Or maybe even use both Robert's and mamesick's avatar in the splash screen.

    ARCADE 0.177

    I ran a full Refresh Game List. And two games, Mystic Marathon [mysticm] and Turkey Shoot [tshoot], did not show up as Available Games. I had to manually Audit them individually to make them show up as Available Games. This type of problem has occurred in the past with a few games and when I reported it to mamesick he was able to fix it. So hopefully you or him will be able to fix it this time as well. This may have something to do with it: WIP:- 0.177: MASH added video proms ($0, 100, 200) to Mystic Marathon. WIP:- 0.177: MASH added video proms ($0, 100, 200) to Turkey Shoot. Fixed rom names. Changed description to 'Turkey Shoot (prototype)'.

    ARCADE 0.177

    Thank you, Robbberto. Do you plan on making an icon for ARCADE32/64 instead of using the old icon from MAMEUIFX? I have a suggestion for it. Ya know how you have a "H" icon for HBMAME, well you could have an "A" icon for ARCADE32/64.
  22. So I guess you are holding off on the release of ARCADE32/64 until MAME 0.177 is released?
  23. @Mamesick - I never got a chance to thank you for everything you've done with MAMEUIFX. You were always willing to listen to users' suggestions and take them into consideration. Several of those suggestions were by me and most of them you agreed to implement and did. I was always appreciative and thankful for that. The time I saw you were leaving, posting at your forum had already been disabled. MAMEUIFX will always be my favorite MAME derivative. So I just wanted to say thank you again and I hope everything works out well for you. Take care.
