MAME WIP Page Updated
The MAME WIP page has been updated..Here's the following progresses:
  • 2003-01-16: Malice submitted information on how to get Jurassic Park to boot, though controls aren't emulated and background graphics are missing like with the other games in the Sega System 32 driver. Acho A. Tang sent in a driver for B-Wings and Zaviga.
  • 2003-01-15: Stephane Humbert and Tim added yet another version of SF2 to the CPS-1 driver. Aaron Giles finally figured out the protection in Ultimate Tennis, making it fully playable. Nicola Salmoria adjusted the sound frequency in the Home Data driver and got Mahjong Ikagadesuka to boot, but unfortunately sound and inputs don't work so it's not playable. Pierpaolo Prazzoli re-submitted some Playchoice and VSNES improvements. R. Belmont fixed the pitch problem in the YMF278B sound chip, noticeable in the Strikers 1945 II coin insert sound.
  • 2003-01-14: Quench cleaned up the TNZS driver. Stephane Humbert fixed the inputs and DIP switches in Boggy '84. Andrea Mazzoleni sent in some small compiling fixes. Brian A. Troha fixed some DIP switch settings in the SSV driver. Nicola Salmoria sent in another update to the Home Data driver, making Mahjong Kojin Kyouju (Private Teacher), Mahjong Vitamin C, Mahjong Yougo no Kiso Tairyoku, Mahjong Kinjirareta Asobi, Mahjong Jogakuen and Mahjong Lemon Angel work with perfect inputs and sound emulation.
  • 2003-01-13: David Haywood re-merged some old submissions with 0.63. Aaron Giles fixed the sound banking in the Art & Magic games and improved the protection emulation, but it's still not complete. Quench added better M-Chip protection emulation to the TNZS driver and improved the i8x41 CPU core. David Haywood also added Boggy '84 to the Fast Freddie and Jump Coaster driver. Nicola Salmoria replaced the MCU simulation hacks with full emulation of the uPD7807 CPU in the Home Data driver, also making the sound emulation work fine.
  • 2003-01-12: Nicola Salmoria further improved the decryption of the blitter data in the Art & Magic driver and hooked up zoom in it. Aaron Giles fixed the DIP switches in it and figured out the protection interface in Ultimate Tennis and Stone Ball, but the protection data is missing so they still aren't playable. Phil Stroffolino sent in an updated Halley's Comet driver that is pretty close to playable, but some blitter problems still remain. Bryan McPhail emulated the i8751 protection in Firetrap so the original version works. Stephane Humbert fixed the inputs and DIP switches in the Gumbo driver.
  • 2003-01-11: Nicola Salmoria improved the decryption of the blitter data in the Art & Magic driver. Paul Priest added gun emulation to Zombie Raid in the Seta driver and Stephane Humbert fixed some of the DIP switches in it. Vasara 2 was also added to the SSV driver. Angelo Salese further improved the decryption in Quiz F1, fixed the DIP switch settings in Final Star Force and fixed the crash in Jeutel's Defender and cleaned up the decryption in it.
  • 2003-01-10: Stephane Humbert added another version of SF2 to the CPS-1 driver, and he partially fixed the DIP switch settings in Super Doubles Tennis. Aaron Giles wrote a driver for Tickee Tickats.
  • 2003-01-09: David Haywood removed the Neo Geo BIOS hacks and added support for other BIOS ROMs than the one that is currently used. David Haywood also added Zombie Raid to the Seta driver but it's unplayable because the controls aren't hooked up and the sound is not emulated. Bryan McPhail added Super Doubles Tennis to the Burger Time driver. Bryan McPhail also fixed the erratic coin inputs in the i8751 emulation in the Karnov driver.
  • 2003-01-08: Jarek Burczynski started working on a driver for Cannon Ball (not the Atari prototype nor the Yun Sung games that have the same name). David Haywood added another clone of Super Visual Football called Super Visual Soccer to the Sega System 32 driver.
  • 2003-01-07: R. Belmont added scrolling to the background graphics in the Jaleco Mega System 32 driver but it doesn't work perfectly yet. Bryan McPhail fixed the IremGA20 sound chip emulation from crashing if sound was turned off, and he added save state support to V20, V30 and V33 CPU cores. Aaron Giles sent in a work in progress driver for the Art & Magic games that supports Ultimate Tennis, Cheese Chase and Stone Ball, the problem being that the blitter data format is encrypted so all graphics are garbled. Uki added the Japanese version of Shanghai Kid called Hokuha Syourin Hiryu no Ken, and two other versions of Real Mahjong Haihai and The Mahjong.

XMAME V0.62.2 Released
The Unix/X11 ports for MAME has been updated....Here's the following changes:
  • Almost everything from MAME 0.62 and MESS 0.62.1.
  • The game window should no longer open twice on startup in most cases. One known exception is Pac-Man with artwork enabled.
  • Replaced fileio.c with a slightly modified version from the Win32 codebase. Be aware that several command line switches have changed as a result!
  • Applied the Xv cleanup patch required for the VIDIX patch. (Alastair Robinson)
  • The number of games is no longer hard-coded to 3000 in datafile.c. This should fix problems with history.dat and "-listinfo". (Rene Single)
  • Rotation is now handled by the OSD code. The method used is hardly optimal, but it should work for all display targets. Moving the rotation to the blit core is planned for a future release.
  • The Xv target now uses the game driver's aspect ratio unless the "-nokeepaspect" or "-noka" switch is specified. Inspired by Paul Sajecki's patch.
  • Simplified/unified the FPS on-screen display. This is now only overridden when the Barath frameskipper is in debug mode.
  • The DGA, GGI, and SVGALIB targets now use the game aspect ratio provided by the core rather than a hard-coded 4:3. Using "-x11-mode" or "-x11" to activate DGA fullscreen mode now disables Xv. Likewise, switching to DGA fullscreen mode via - is now disabled while Xv is active.
  • All path and directory options in fileio.c now support expansion of environment variables such as $HOME.
  • Fixed a warning about snprintf when building for Mac OS X.
  • Fixed the XInput handling so that spinners no longer show an inertial effect. (David Mitchell)
  • Updated the documentation to include a section about the Xv extension. (Frank Cox)
  • Fixed problems in memory.c that could lead to crashes and default.cfg corruption. (smf)
  • Fixed a bunch of ANSI/ISO warnings reported by Stefano Priore. Aspect and mode switches are now available for the Xv driver even if DGA isn't enabled.
  • Fixed a couple of files so that they include instead of the deprecated . (Nico)
  • Changed a net_active() call in src/mame.c to the osd_net_active(). I must have messed up my all-in-one core patch at some point.
  • The 'rc' and 'hi' directories are now created on startup if they're missing. (Gerd Sussner)
  • Merged NetMAME 0.6rc1, which which should allow games to be playable over medium-latency connections, DSL and cable. It also adds configurable ports and NVRAM sync. (Steve Freeland)

  • Filters now can use any video resolution higher than 640x480, no more overriding the rocknes.ini setting;
  • More internal tweaks and cosmetic changes.

MAME32 v0.63 Released!
After the new MAME came out, MAME32 has now updated to the latest version. Here is what is new with in MAME32:
  • Added code to ROM loading dialogue to visually indicate user intervention when the game being launched may not work due to 'no good dump' this will match the baseline Mame [press ok to continue]. Examples include the game Astyanax, 64th Street etc. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Return to baseline non-I686 compile as it prevented Mame32 working on a variety of machines. [John IV]
  • Made numerous code changes to allow Mame32 to be compiled with the new MinGW 2.0 package. [Chris Kirmse / Mike Haaland]
  • Distribution compiles are now done using above mentioned MinGW 2.0 package. [John IV]
  • Added code to allow for a tooltip to appear showing the full name of a game whose description is cut-off by column width in details/grouped view. Hover cursor over game to activate. [Andrew Kirmse / Chris Kirmse]
  • The default \folders\Favorites.ini has been cleaned out. Now that it is easy to drag and drop or secondary click to add games from the main list to the custom folders, it no longer needs to serve as an example using personal favorites. Be sure to backup existing \folders\favorite.ini if using the built in installer version of the Mame32 distribution. [John IV]
  • Tweaked code for drag & drop of games into custom folders. In a custom folder to drag an item out for deletion, it must go out of the game list pane either left, right, up, or down beneath the last item in the pane or further out of the GUI. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Reworked internal file handling code to interface with Aaron's substantial core updates. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Submitted code suggestion to allow for more granular sorting and display of items in the Manufacturers view, so companies will no longer be grouped with others incorrectly. [Renι Single]
  • Created new main icon and about.bmp 'LadyBug Homage'. [John IV]
  • Fixed ascending/descending toggle via View • Arrange Icons for columns other than Game. Added some logic to the -listsourcefile column display.
  • Prevented color depth and refresh rate settings from being displayed if games are played in windowed mode. [Renι Single / Chris Kirmse]
  • Made Misc. art option gray properly when its parent control was deselected. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Submitted code to clean up some issues with the list and small icons view and icons squishing in details view upon return from another view like large icons. [Renι Single / Chris Kirmse]
  • Upgraded Mame32 to utilize the new common controls from Windows XP, allowing the proper look of an XP application without the need for an external manifest file. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Added ability to rename custom folders from the tree view, secondary click on them and choose rename folder from the context menu, or click the name of the folder three times quickly. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Added the 'Source' folder view, this will display all the driver.c files and all the games within each family. [Mike Haaland]
  • Removed the \folders\BIOS.ini as it is now obviated by the built-in Source folder view. [John IV]
  • Added -sourcefileinfo information to the general tab for each games' properties, to easily and quickly see what driver family a game belongs to. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Added the long requested clone offset a.k.a 'Grouped' view. This will display the parent games flush left, with all their clones alphabetized beneath them indented inward. Excellent for grouping the clones whose names may be considerably different than their parents, and allowing typing the name of the game to take you to the parent set immediately. [John IV / Chris Kirmse]
  • Reworked the Startup Options to now be Interface Options, and added checkboxes to support Aaron's new disclaimer / info screen toggle. [Chris Kirmse]
  • Added new switches -rdtsc / -pause_brightness to match the core. [Chris Kirmse]
[update by teckel] Go get your copy today from the M.A.M.E. section at the above link to avoid being tricked into being charged by the MAME32 team to download the file. If they need download space and bandwidth I'll provide it for free instead of some people being fooled into paying to download.

MAME v0.63 Released!
MAME v0.63 is an interim release with many things submitted in the past two months not included yet.
    These drivers have improved GRAPHICS:
    • Subroc-3D, Turbo and Buck Rogers use the artwork to show the LED counters. [Stefan Jokish]
    • Fixed colors in Dynamic Ski. [Stefan Jokish]
    These drivers have improved SOUND:
    • Samples support in Subroc-3D [Dave France]
    • Fixed noie frequency in the Exidy games. [Jim Hernandez]
    • Preliminary Namco NA sound support. [Phil Stroffolino]
    Other drivers changes:
    • Partially simulated the protection in Birdie Try [Angelo Salese]
    • Improved decryption in Quiz F1 1-2 Finish, it's still incomplete though. [Angelo Salese]
    • Fixed ball position recognition in Golfing Greats. [Olivier Galibert]
    Changes to the main program:
    • New options -nodisclaimer and -nogameinfo to disable startup screens. Warnings about incorrect emulation are not disabled. [Aaron Giles]
    • Replaced RDTSC timing with QueryPerformanceCounter. This should fix problems on SpeedStep notebooks. It seems, however, that it causes even worse problems on other machines. Therefore, the old behaviour can be forced with the new -rdtsc option. [smf]
    Source:
    • Now compiled with MinGW 2.0/GCC 3.2. There might be bugs caused by the new compiler, let us know.
    • All new, much better, YM2413 emulation. [Jarek Burczynski]
    • Drum support in YM2608 emulation (check e.g. Tail 2 Nose). [Jarek Burczynski]
    • Moved most of the file I/O out of the OS depndant code and into the core. Added two new types, mame_file and osd_file, which enforce better type checking throughout the system (and prevents confusing the two). Instead of calling osd_fopen, osd_fread, osd_fwrite, etc., you now call mame_fopen, mame_fread, mame_fwrite, etc. The osd_* calls are reserved to the core. All the ZIP handling is done in the mame_file functions, so it will be inherited by all ports. [Aaron Giles]
    • [Win32] The diff, snap, cfg, nvram, etc. directories are created automatically if they don't exist the first time MAME tries to create a file there. [Aaron Giles]
    • MIPS III/IV CPU cores. [Aaron Giles]
    • ADSP-2115 CPU support. [Aaron Giles]
    • TMS32025 CPU core. [Quench]
    • Fixed YMF278B emulation. [R.Belmont]
    MAME Testers bugs fixed (there are probably more)
    • galaga37b8gre [Satoshi Suzuki]
    • galaga37b16gre [Satoshi Suzuki]
    • cutieq37b2gre [Stephane Humbert]
    • crusn062gre [Aaron Giles]

    • wiping062red [Stefan Jokish]

New Nintendo GameBoy Advance!
Nintendo GBA SP Nintendo has finally released images of their new GameBoy Advance hand-held called the GameBoy Advance SP. It looks like a mini-laptop with a folding display. Folded, it's 3 inches square and 1 inch thick. It not only looks nice, it also includes a few fixes for the current GameBoy Advance. Fixes include a longer battery life with a built-in rechargeable lithium ion battery and lighted display. The battery charge lasts 10 hours with the lighted display on or 18 hours with the light off which is much longer than the current unit. The battery can be removed and additional batteries can be purchased so game play shouldn't be too interrupted. It appears that the display isn't a TFT display, but the same display in the current GBA but with lighting so you can play it in low-light situations. It's unknown if the new unit will correct poor adult hand placement as with the current GBA, but the early word is that it's more comfortable. It will be released in Japan next month for about $105 US. The US and Europe will get it in late March at around $100 for the US market and between 129 and 139 Euros for the European market. Check out the 9 screen shots at the above link.
