Re: This is why the MAME emulation of Kangaroo is inaccurate

The problem is that newer versions of MAME run like ass for a bunch of reasons that have nothing to do with game-specific accuracy. You could backport so many game fixes to v0.106 (as an example) and it would be a hundred times better than seriously trying to use v0.157 or whatever. Unless you're re...

Help, how to actually play River Patrol?

Silly topic, but I have been completely unable to find any tips about this game through Google. Despite the hearsay, River Patrol is clearly about people chaining. Problem is, sometimes a person will just die when the boat reaches them, which means no points and a broken chain. I've tried everything...

Re: [K11] Round 2 - Puyo Puyo 2 (Japan) [puyopuy2]

sadly i'm just gonna give up on k11 like a loser: <Despatche> ddraw sucks in newer mame because people feel the need to kill what's working <Despatche> d3d isn't going to work at all unless you have a computer that mame does not need <Despatche> either you take the ddraw penalty, you get a ridiculou...

kinda been avoiding this, heh. 11,879,230, somehow the best i've ever done at the game. almost didn't realize the file simply named ".inp" was what was recorded...

edit: very sorry, should have noted that i'm using v0.148.

I had a scrubby 8.4M or something, but then I noticed I clicked playback.exe instead of record.exe. :V

Bosconian settings + leeching

I'm sure you guys know this better than I do, but it seems many versions of MAME have incorrect default extend settings for this game. Most versions (specifically v0.106 and before) use 10000/50000/every 50000. Thing is, even all the flyers mention that it's supposed to be 20000/70000/every 70000. I...

Re: Syvalion

Try analog sensitivity? I don't know this game...

But I have thought something similar with things like trackball games, maybe there should be study on analog setting for digital and analog controls for any game?

Moon Patrol questions

Does anyone happen to know what board the parent set is from? Something is suggesting that either this board is very rare or the set currently in MAME is a bootleg too. Either way, there's supposed to be a bug in that set that reboots the game if a single life is played too long (about 2 or 3 course...

Re: Outzone romsets renamed

Oh, thank God, they finally fixed this game.

Why is MAME so obsessed with "last version first" anyway? The earliest known version should obviously be the parent from which any clones are based.

Re: Street Fighter Zero 3 (Japan)

still against the rules, but not sure what buttons 3 and 4 would do though, iirc that's hard punch and light kick. maybe there's some crazy option select-type glitch.

Re: Wolf149: "No Driver Loaded" (empty)

if it's anything like the old directdraw, you might be able to fix everything by disabling "stretch with hardware" (if it still exists) and messing with the resolution options, etc. m+gui or qmc should let you easily get into that stuff, idk the cdl commands anymore. i'm not a fan of the directx sup...

Re: Shoot Em Up Tournament || Open for Sign-Up !

did you make a thread at shmups.system11.org? they haven't had stgt this year, and while some other folks are trying to do their own thing, i think they'd appreciate this too. you're shooting for a good late date, so the little tourney they're running now should be over by then, though people will p...
