MAME 0.203

With Hallowe’en basically over, the only thing you need to make October complete is MAME 0.203. Newly supported titles include not just one, but two Nintendo Game & Watch classics: Donkey Kong and Green House, and the HP 9825B desktop computer. We’ve added dozens of new versions of supported systems, including European bootlegs of Puck Man, Ms. Pac-Man, Phoenix, Pengo and Zero Time, more revisions of Street Fighter II and Super Street Fighter II, and a version of Soldier Girl Amazon made under license by Tecfri.

There are major improvements to plug-in TV games in this release, specifically systems based on the XaviX and SunPlus µ'nSP processors. The Vii is now playable with sound, and the V.Smile can boot games. Tiger Game.com emulation has come to the point where all but one of the games are playable. Some long-standing issues with Tandy CoCo cartridges have been fixed.

It isn’t just home systems that have received attention this month: Namco System 22 emulation has leapt forward. Yes, the hit box errors making it impossible to pass the helicopter (Time Crisis) and the tanks (Tokyo Wars) have finally been fixed. On top of that, video emulation improvements make just about everything on the system look better. In particular, rear view mirrors in the driving games now work properly. If that isn’t enough for you, the code has been optimised, so there’s a good chance you’ll get full speed emulation on a modern PC. There have been less dramatic improvements to video emulation in other Namco and Tecmo systems, and CPS-3 row scroll effects have been implemented.

MAME 0.203 should build out-of-the-box on macOS “Mojave” with the latest Xcode tools (provided your SDL2 framework is up-to-date), a number of lingering debugger issues have been fixed, and it’s now possible to run SDL MAME on a system with no display. MAME’s internal file selection menus should behave better when you type the name of a file to select it.

MAME 0.203 is a huge update, touching all kinds of areas. You can get the source and Windows binary packages from the download page.

Do the G&W games have artwork available? Last I checked I couldn't find any for the ones that were in there (e.g. Mario Bros., etc.)

Unzip the file from this link to the artwork folder. ;)

 

It covers the artwork for ten G&W games under 0.203.

Anybody know the current status of the plug n play games on Mame. I find it interesting they are emulating those these days. Best I could find was mention of a batman title and a Wall-E title. Have they emulated the starwars Jakks Pacific games, or the arcade titles like PacMan? Mappy, etc.? Mostly just curious if they figured out how to get the programs off them with the blobs of plastic and such.

just wanted to bump this, to see if anyone has the ms pac man bootleg 2 (greece) romset,

 

i found most of the files, except the chr-13.bin file, and it won't work without it,

and several other files are missing, or are the wrong dump.

 

would appreciate it if there are any pointers. the few that i've gotten only have 1 file in them,

and don't work.

 

thanks.

Out of curiosity where did you find them?

this site had the 4 rar files, that contained them.

links at bottom:

http://f.ppxclub.com/689871-1-1

 

HOWEVER, they still had incomplete and missing roms in them,

and then i had to go to yet another site, and piece stuff together.

and they took forever to download.

 

very messy.
