"Fine if you know your CLI from your CFG"

January 07, 2013  |  By graham (uk)

 |  Version: MAME 0.146s


If you know enough old-style computing to get it working, MAME is brilliant. (I've been using older versions for over 10 years now.) One can record some games for later display within MAME.


If you're the 'wrong sort of computer user' then trying to get a game to display and work correctly can be a nightmare. Even the new MAME installation is fraught, and doesn't offer an obvious start point to the user when the setup is completed.


Context: I've been a MAME user for over 10 years. And first, a proviso: it's not MAME's fault, but if you want to start playing games such as MsPacman or MrDo then you have to get hold of the game ROMs elsewhere. It's a basic licencing issue, and arcade companies like Bally Midway have NOT placed their 1980s intellectual material into the public domain.

And now to MAME itself: getting correct displays of games can require one to manually edit the game's CFG (configuration) files, and much of the general MAME troubleshooting advice available on the internet is in the form of CLI (command line interface) entries.

I've downloaded the new version, and I swiftly decided to stay with my old-and-trusted version (mame32v71b). Sure, it makes me grind my teeth occasionally, but at least I know roughly how to use it, and have had hundreds of hours of fun on it - for which I do thank all those MAME folks who have worked on the project for so many many years. Cheers, guys.

"a great emulator that does more than expected"

June 13, 2011  |  By thegreatluis14

 |  Version: MAME 0.142s


easy to configure joysticks like the ones u buy at best buy or gamestop


it sometimes freezes when trying to load a game and you have to restart the prgram


the emulator is very good. i love the hyperspeed option to speed up the process and it saves time wehn loading a game or waiting for credits to be over. it works perfectly with a joystick u can buy and hook up to an arcade station like the one i got from recrommmasters.com !! the only thing that needs to be changed is maybe increased compatibility with games
