Official CoinOPS2 R5 released

Recommended Posts

Hah, yeah, good luck with that.

 

There's been a bunch of people (including myself) who wanted to know what additional arcade games had been added from X to Y, but all they got in reply was "compare the gamelists - too many to remember".

 

I actually did this at one point. i.e. compared Epic R6 to R8.

Here was the list of "too many to remember":

Basically, if you want to know what additional games have been added over a given earlier version, you need to run a database comparison against the gamelist files IN EVERY VERSION.

 

Yes, that is what you're expected to do. Download every version, and compare all of their gamelist files.

 

Seriously.

 

Ugh, just be thankful that person doesn't ruin I mean reside in this forum anymore! much better without him i'd say :)

I think that the term 'added games' as CoinOPS uses it is (deliberately?) rather misleading. CoinOPS is intended to be a package complete with roms so when arcade games are described as 'added' it simply means that roms have been added to package, not that support for any new games has been coded into the emulators.

Counter Run uses a driver that isn't currently part of FBA so you'd effectively be asking for a whole new driver to be ported. However the MAME driver should be easy enough to add to CoinOPS, it may not even require any changes I'm not sure it's been a long time since I did any work with MAMEoX drivers.

Would you believe thats exactly what BP was asking for in his CoinOPS irc channel just over an hour ago, now either your psychic or doing his dirty work for him. Not quite as noob and naive as you would have us believe are you ?

first off i dont know bp have never spoken to him in fact i know absolutly no one on here its safe to say i dont know anyone in the emulation scene this is the only site ive joined and to be honest i only asked for driver update for counter run because its the only game i used to play in the arcades that wont work on coinops in fact i joined this site to ask for this game most of you might think its shite but its one of my favs hope this clears up any doughts over me

thanks for your reply i should really just ask bp since i want the game for coinops but since he has left this site do you have any advice on who i could ask on here to pass on my request to bp for a driver update for counter run

Indeed. In fact, I only returned here because he left. True story.

 

Holy hell, I just realised you're from the Toon! Small world.
