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!
