Help with glitchy ROMS in MESSUI

Recommended Posts

I'm reasonably new to MESSUI, but have used MAME for a couple years now. I absolutely LOVE the MESS emulator and would be thrilled if I could get it to work with all my favorite vintage system ROMS. For the most part it works great, but there are a few ROMS from various consoles that are glitchy. I was wondering if there is a specific place to report these glitches to in the hopes of getting them working? If anyone has any advice, it would be appreciated.

Hi there. What kind of glitches are we talking about? Do you have examples?

I would have to go through the ROMs again to see what glitches I have. Here are a couple off the top of my head. Qbert for Intellivision has a glitch where every time you clear a level, you'd lose a life. On Comix Zone for Sega Genesis, the main menu screen has the bottom half on top and the top half on the bottom. I know I also had some other Atari 5200 games that would just be black screen when you mounted them. In these cases, I've tested the same ROMs in other emulators and they worked fine. I've tried using different versions of MESSUI to see if that was the problem. On an older version, Comix Zone didn't have this glitch. On all the versions I tried, Intellivision's Qbert had the same problem. I had noticed on later versions of MESSUI, there were some games that would black screen when mounted that now work, like Intellivisions Demon Attack. I'm currently using version 0.163.

Those things sound like problems within MAME/MESS itself, rather than any doing of the MESSUI frontend.

I was wondering if there is a specific place to report these glitches to in the hopes of getting them working?

I would suggest you discuss the problems with knowledgeable individuals at the bannister forum, and if the others there agree, log them at mametesters.
