This sounds awesome, thanks very much!

So, how does one go about ensuring that the romset is compatible with MAME 0.37b5? Can you release a romlist ahead of time so that we can have our roms ready by the time the emulator comes out? Is there a ClrMAMEPro DAT file available for MAME 0.37b5?

Thanks again!

Thanks, Franxis!

The public beta already runs great. I now can play one of my all time favourite "Aliens" in a very good quality.
The new user interface is also great and make some things a lot easier.

Brilliant work!

Regards,
Stephan

This is just the kind of news I needed ;-)

Tell me, is there any chance we'll see USB pad support?

Thanks to everyone involved!

I thought the older versions already had usb pad support? or am I wrong? :unsure:

So since this release is based off of 0.37b05 does this mean is supports every game up to this version? Or are there still certain games not added? Just wondering.

R-Type Series for example? :) Would be cool (if it plays fast enough)

I wonder, why a newer MAME Version is now possible at GP2X. I thought there was a reason for the older 0.34 Version because of the limitations of the Handheld? Well, If the new MAME version really is faster than the older one, it will be a even more great Emulator. (MAME normaly tends to be slower and slower with every newer version)

Having played the private beta, I can tell you that not every game in PC MAME 37b5 is supported here (no r-type for instance). Also, you must convert your romset to play many games. I haven't done this yet so I haven't tested it all that much.

Question to Franxis or anyone with beta, how do you bring up the true MAME menu to change controls and whatnot?

Here is a link to a searchable mame database. It has every game ever released for mame so far. You can also search by the MAME version. http://www.mameworld.net/maws/



I can't get that to show all roms up to and including 0.37b5 - all I can get is to see the roms that were new in version 0.37b5.

Is there anyone who can produce or point a link to the full game list of MAME 0.37b5?
Thankls.

When MAME4ALL becomes available it will have a gamelist text file listing all compatible games. Just wait a few days.

16bits mode? then NBA, MKI and MKII are playable?
Yeah I was wondering that as well. Those games needed a beefy as hell PC back then. I don't even want to know how it's would even run on the GP2X. I am curious though. Guess we'll find out in a couple days.

Ok, so I figured out you access the main menu by pressing start+select in-game. Let me tell you, it's pretty awesome to have this feature in MAME on gp2x!!

My only remaining question is how do we adjust volume if we launch a game in vertical mode?

Also, I converted my roms, and wow, there are a ton of new games!! Don't expect miracles on speed though as many games are basically unplayably slow, but it is very cool to see.

Oh, and I was wrong above. R-Type is supported! I couldn't build that rom atm, but I did try R-Type 2 and it worked pretty well. :)

Great work Franxis!
