I think performance decreased a bit with the sdllib, I compiled, also the touchscreen seems to be off.


Can someone confirm this?


Maybe I have to contact notaz to ask him, if git version is really the latest.

Hi mcobit,


Great work so far but I can't get the latest version to run. It appears to try and start but then quits. I have just retried 1.7 and that works fine. Any ideas?

I give you.... PanMame!

This includes movie previews linked in mcobit's post #38 (http://www.mamechannel.it/pages/crashtest.php) and advmenu skin settings listed in post #271.


I disabled advmenu sounds and music through advmenu.rc (to hear the game previews a little better) and changed the background image to black with 0% opacity (also in advmenu.rc) so it blends in with the rest of the menu.

Excellent video, could you post your .rc to save me amending mine? Lazy I know but what the hell.

Wow that was quick, thank you.


This is a much better colour scheme for when playing in bed at night, on the Pandora.

Peculiar... latest version isn't starting for me. I saw a brief flicker of the loading screen and then it exits. Yesterdays' build worked fine for me. I deleted the .advance folder when updating. Anything else I'm forgetting or that I should try?

MooTheKnow,


106.1.8 Didn't start for me either.


The john4p mod SDL library can be used to get this version to work See post #263 for the method.


mcobit,


phdrun_panmame.out says libdirectfb-1.4.so.0: cannot open shared object file: No such file or directory


Think the SDL library included may be incomplete as it is only ~553kb in size whereas the others are ~1.9MB


Thanks!

Oh well, will fix that this evening, sorry!


I think I built the sdllib wrong, like dgame said and the sdllib on my nand took over, so I didn't notice it.

OMG, 6+GB's for the preview vids. eeek, that'll fill my card quick. I wish I had a few days to sort through all the games I want. :(


This is an excellent version of Mame, definitely my favourite now although I still have some erroring roms but I think it is my rom set. I think I will try IanJ's skin as I like the look of it.

It's not my skin it's jw11611's but I agree I like the look of it too.

I think it's a good idea mcobit, looks a little more modern. So long as others and yourself agree.


I am sure somebody posted the 0.106 dat but i can't find it in the thread. Did I make this up or did it happen????

I tested again and on my Pandora thelatest version works on HF6 and 7.


What HF are you running on? And does everyone, where it doesn't work have the error about the missing directfb lib?
