Arcade Survey

Recommended Posts

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.

1-2-3-Yes to all, since all of them are arcade machines...

4-No since they are not playable. When mame achieves something like virtualpinball, I would include them.

1. Yes, because mahjong belongs part of the Arcade System completly even the 2D gambling one's have black screen backwards.

Game example: JongKyo.

2. Yes and No, and why?

Yes, Because there is a few important games in poker like pgm it belongs in to the familly system and others not.

And no, because there is a few just belong in to a real casino games, and it have a large amount of clone crap on it. It have layers and they doesn´t look like as a normal rom game. For example there is a few gambling games like igs system familly they look important because they belongs in to a normal poker game machine in "2D" reference of one Single Arcade. And it doesn´t look like those blue screen look at you with 5 single cards. The problem is those versions, just trash over mame on it. After this adding on casino they remove a few important one's on arcade and exclude it as gambling and poker games out of the familly system. Other problem was when mame decided to include source after source inside of important games, make them mixed everything. The reason a few years back mame had problems to fix it.

I don´t see why the Poker blue and black screen one's are in Arcade System, they are real mechanical machines. peplus.cpp, calomega.cpp source

3. The same as the 2. Yes and No. 2D Fruit games are Arcade, but real casino machines are not Arcade. (The Blue screen one's, the one's you need layers on it).

4. No, because they are not working, they have no layers, and mame it self need to find a way to transform the layers as normal rom file and read on each perpective rom without adding layers over and over. 

If you like pinball, i preffer to use pinmame instead, it works ok.

--//--

To complete my opinion those games with 2D graphic reference need to be added, because they confuse other games it uses layers and they are using black and blue screen. Only mahjong games it doesn´t have, just the one who posseses CHD are DVD and those one's are really important to be on mame. :inlove: (Hot girls heavy breathing intensifies)

If you run MAMEUI just hide MESS, Mechanical and consoles. The problem is fixed. After that you can decided if poker and fruit games need to be added or not.

If you hide clones and not working one's next, you have a perfect set of 4562 games in mame 0.242 version.

People have the option to export the working one's and delete the clone one's too for clrmamepro.

I agree yes to 1 & 2 & 3 as it does say ARCADE & you'll find all of those in an ARCADE.     Well at least you used to.

No to 4 Pinball as not playable.

I agreed as well, because i don´t like the normal mame as it is, only because of MESS. 

My vote is yes to all.

I also agree.

  • 3 weeks later...

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).
