So, finally got to using a newer version of MAME/MESS than 0.152 with 0.197 installed from the repositories. I'll likely eventually upgrade it to the trunk, but for now, I've got bigger fish to fry. Trying a MESS script copied from the old computer throws all kind of errors, which brings me to a point: **this is why I often feel unmotivated to upgrade things - because useless and unnecessary changes seem to be the order of the day**. Anyway, now that I have that off my chest, here's an example script from the MESS days: mess64 ti99_4ev \ -peb:slot3 speech \ -peb:slot4 samsmem \ -peb:slot5 pcode \ -peb:slot6 tirs232 \ -peb:slot8 hfdc \ -hard1 ~/mess/TI-HD.hd \ -gromport multi \ -cart1 ~/mess/ti_carts/extended_basic.rpk \ -cart3 ~/mess/ti_carts/editor_assembler.rpk \ -cart4 ~/mess/ti_carts/ti-writer.rpk Changing "mess64" to "mame' and attempting to launch the following segments "peb" and "hard1", "hard2", etc give errors, and MAME doesn't start. Of course, I've already done a bit of investigating, noticing that for some arbitrary and pointless reason "peb" now has to be the more verbose "ioport:peb". I'm still having trouble with "hard1", and didn't find solution for that. And I'm sure there are other erroneous syntax in this script that used to work perfectly. Any advice / help would be greatly appreciated. Thank you for reading!
Hello, I'm currently a newbie to Batari Basic and Visual bB for the Atari 2600 and had only begun to set up both programs. I installed both Batari Basic 1.5 and Visual bB build 568. So far according to the Windows 10 installation method I had extracted both zipped files and placed them together in a folder labeled "Atari2600". From there I launched the Visual bB configuration wizard and ran the install_win batch file. From there I am able to launch the Visual bB however I get error windows claiming to be script errors. I'm able to skip or ignore these messages and go into the program, from there everything appears to work as normal and I'm able to compile my code which at the moment has only been a playfield. When I test my code in the built in emulator, I'm then presented with an error regarding the file which will not allow me to run the code. Could I have possibly made an error while installing both programs or made an error with the configuration wizard? Any help or guidance would be greatly appreciated!
