  1. Official MAME 0.237 Twitter, Instagram and Facebook links! https://twitter.com/mamedev_org/status/1453051522149924875 https://www.instagram.com/p/CVgEZqirfEG/ https://www.facebook.com/mamedev.org/posts/2961859014063752 If you can support MAME on social media, please show our social media posts some love with Likes/Loves/Retweets/Shares/etc.!
  2. MAME 0.237 For everyone who’s waited patiently all month, MAME 0.237 is out today! As well as the updates to the UI and debugger that we’ve already announced, there are several updates to the included plugins: A brand-new input macro plugin. The data plugin can now show text from the Japanese command.dat file (or a Chinese command.txt file if you rename it to command.dat). The location the hiscore support plugin uses to store its data and configuration has changed. You won’t lose your high scores, but you need to move the .hi files from the hi folder to the hiscore folder in your plugin data (homepath) folder. The configuration format for the autofire plugin has changed. Unfortunately, you will need to add your autofire button settings again. Interesting machines added this month include a Mexican TRS-80 Color Computer clone, Tronica Thunder Ball (a re-skin of Space Rescue with a nautical theme), the original version of Pengo that the widespread bootlegs seem to be based on, the original hardware revision of the Laser 128 (Apple II clone), and a slightly older version of Street Fighter Zero 2 Alpha for Asia. Master of multi-memory controllers kmg is still on a roll broadening NES/Famicom and clone cartridge compatibility. Highlights of the month include: Railway management simulator A Ressha de Ikou. Recent NES/Famicom games released by Ancient to promote Gotta Protectors (Minna de Mamotte Knight). NES development is still alive over two decades after the last licensed title was released in 1995. The two Korean Brilliant Com (영재컴) edutainment games. Some multi-game cartridges featuring the ambitious Titenic game, inspired by a highly successful James Cameron film. Kart Fighter – using the engine from an unlicensed NES port of Street Fighter II, and unlicensed depictions of the character roster from Super Mario Kart, this is almost a premonition of Super Smash Bros. It even features Yoshi’s tail smash, and depicts Kinopio (Toad) as a bare-knuckle brawler long before the Mii costume was available for purchase. Well-known low-effort Mario-themed hack 7 Grand Dad. PUSH ↑ START BUTTON. GET ADDITION GAME. AND NOURISH THE BLOOD Amiga software compatibility has been improved this month, the NEC PC-6001 family has gained a cartridge software list, and another batch of Commodore 64 cassettes has been added. An issue was identified with “fake E7” Apple II cracks that could prevent them from working if they were written out to disks to use on original hardware. Although this didn’t prevent them from being used in MAME, disk images with the issue fixed have been added to the software list. Over a hundred Apple IIgs cracks have been added, too. You can read about all the exciting developments this month in the whatsnew.txt file, or get the source and 64-bit Windows binary packages from the download page. Read the rest of this entry »

  5. Upcoming Changes in MAME We’re well on our way through the current development cycle, and MAME 0.237 is going to have some significant changes, not just in terms of emulation, but in the user interface and debugger. Don’t worry, no functionality has been removed. In fact, we’ve added several features. It just might take a little while to adjust to the differences. First of all, we’ve added support for localised system name files, as used by front-ends like Retrofire, MxUI and MAME Plus! Popular files include mame32j.lst (Japanese) and mame_cn.lst (Chinese). You’ll be able to put your preferred system name file in the DATs (or “history”) folder, and select it in MAME’s UI customisation settings menu. UI localisation support is more complete, and MAME 0.237 will include high-quality Chinese and Greek translations, thanks to YuiFAN and BraiNKilleRGR. Mouse/trackball navigation has been improved (you can even click DIP switches to toggle them), and the system and software selection menus have been tweaked to include more information and make better use of space. Lots of debugger commands have been enhanced to work better with newer memory system features. We’ve also updated and expanded the debugger documentation, both on our web site and for the built-in help command. If you’re compiling MAME yourself, Python 2.7 will no longer be supported: compiling MAME now requires Python 3.2 or later (this won’t affect you if you just use MAME, Python isn’t required to run MAME). Most operating systems have included Python 3 for years, and our MSYS64/MinGW build tools for Windows already include Python 3.8 – as long as you have a python3 command, you should be good to go. Read on for a more complete list of changes: https://www.mamedev.org/?p=505#readmore

  10. MAMEdev's moving our MAME IRC channels to Libera.Chat! Along with a growing list of Open Source and Free Software projects (https://github.com/siraben/freenode-exodus) and other communities, we’re moving our official IRC presence off freenode. Our new home is #mame (ircs://irc.libera.chat:6697/#mame) on Libera.Chat (https://libera.chat/). Drop by and say hello if you have a chance!

  14. In case you missed MAMEdev's presentation at FOSDEM ’21 (FOSDEM - Free and Open source Software Developers' European Meeting) on Saturday, February 6, 2021, last week MAMEdev uploaded the presentation that MAME's development and release manager Vas Crabb ("cuavas") contributed to MAMEdev's very own YouTube channel! (Don't worry, it’s not all that technical - Vas created the presentation to be approachable no matter the skill level or whether the viewer is new to MAME or not.) Thanks go to FOSDEM's organizers for a great weekend's worth of presentations embracing and supporting the open source community. Due to technical issues early on Saturday, the live Q&A was not recorded. Slides are available on FOSDEM's website. We've now also added a playlist where you can view most past presentations (CAX 2008, Summer Assembly 2009, Revision 2012, BalCCon2k15, CppCon 2016, Ekoparty 13 (2017), Ekoparty 14 (2018), FOSDEM '21) to our YouTube channel: https://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PLMof4txXwGz3g_WJOtsX3FlGq_KT7WCeg
  15. Hey @Dan Boris, I know this is 8 years old but I was revisiting my few old posts on AtariAge. Blast from the past! And sorry for the necropost. Just the other day FlyerFever posted a Rover Leisure Products flyer for "Roverball", a clone/bootleg of Exidy's TV Pinball. https://www.flyerfever.com/post/628447939593928704/roverball They also appear to have made a clone/bootleg of Mirco's "21". https://www.icollector.com/25-Cent-Rover-Leisure-Products-Co-21-Blackjack-Video_i16154117 https://www.liveauctioneers.com/en-gb/item/17337274_25-cent-rover-leisure-products-co-21-blackjack-video Some kind soul also shared your 2012 post on KLOV Forums back in 2012, but it was never linked in this thread: https://forums.arcade-museum.com/threads/does-anyone-recognize-this-game.240286/ It's still anyone's guess which Pong-type game they cloned. Here's hoping Dan @ FlyerFever has the flyer for a coming update, this guy "gregf" thinks he has yet another recent flyer acquisition of a Rover Leisure Products game still to upload: https://www.mameworld.info/ubbthreads/showthreaded.php?Cat=&Number=387760
