Hi Slaanesh :)
Am I missing something, or the link on your homepage is still pointing to 1.0 release? ^_^
Keep on with this great piece of app!

I uploaded the new file but it looks like it's still not updated. I believe it has to be updated manually.

So... Until it says v1.1 don't download. It's been about 24 hrs since I uploaded it - I don't know how long it takes to upgrade. If it's not changed by tomorrow morning (Australia time) will re-upload to a new file slot.

Sorry again slaanesh, ED is the only person that can update the archive (as far as i know), And he has not been around for a few days.

ED is usually pretty good at updating the archive, And i don`t think it will be to long before he does.

I hope this has not put you off in anyway, And can only apologise on EDs behalf.

this is really a great improvement: I like the scale options and also the fact that you do not see linux running in the background anymore. Thank you very much for this.

Thanks, it's good to get some feedback. Much appreciated.

Plans for next release include:

* Dingoo Screen brightness control. Will be similar to the volume control and available as a per-game setting. Probably overkill but it's consistent with the other options.
* Better speed. Probably just an extra frame or two as there is some assembler that will be included here and there.
* Additional larger games working (hopefully). Not all large ROM games are going to work and in fact some will never work as the Dingoo is just too short of RAM and MAME doesn't support caching.

This is going to be largely addressed in the other port I'm currently working on - as it does have caching - Final Burn Alpha :)

hi slaanesh! Thank you for your effort on Mame4all :D
i've a question... after selecting a game from the list, there are some option.. these options should be "per game", aren't these?
I've set "Rotate Best" for 1943 (works like a charme!) then i went back to rom list, I choose any other game and the option "Rotate Best" is always there... any suggestions?

The last "per game" setting that you make becomes the new default setting for all games that don't already have a "per game" setting.
So in your example, you selected 1943, set the options and played the game.
When you exit, if you play another new game that you have previously not played before it will inherit the settings from the last game you played.

slaanesh can you confirm "Joe & Mac" (cninja/cninja0) crash when you press "L+R+Select" during game? (the game itself runs)
Dingoo has to be resetted via reset btn..
