Source Changes
--------------
Improvements to magicfly.c [Roberto Fresca]
* Confirmed and fixed CPU clock for magicfly and 7mezzo.
* Rearranged the graphic ROMs addressing. Splitted both gfx banks.
* Created and minimized the color palette for both gfx banks.
* Fixed colors for magicfly and 7mezzo.

Provided DVD dump for junai [alien_mame, The Dumping Union]

lethalen: improved offset screen and gun in japan version; removed
eeprom default values [Roberto Zandona']

taito_z.c: Added PCB locations to the Aqua Jack sets [ShouTime]

taitopjc: Preliminary text layer and I/O CPU hookup [Ville Linde]

taitotz: preliminary text layer hookup [Ville Linde]

viper: implemented timers and I2C interface on MPC8240 [Ville Linde]

voodoo: preliminary Voodoo 3 support [Ville Linde]

Wrote a basic core for Epson RTC-9701 device chip [David Haywood,
Angelo Salese]

Fixed various translitteration errors in csplayh5.c game name
descriptions [Fujix]

Fixed Juno First refresh rate and interrupt firing
[Angelo Salese, Chris Hardy]

Removed deprecat.h usage from higemaru.c [Angelo Salese]

Removed deprecat.h usage from srmp6.c [Angelo Salese]

naomi: fix various crashes for some GD-ROM sets [R. Belmont]

Added tables from vlm5030 as verified by decap from ogoun. Adapted
vlm5030 to use the tms5xxx common tables file. Some details have yet
to be worked out for certain (how exactly the reflection coefficients
beyond k=2 address the k2+ rom)
[ogoun, Lord Nightmare, The Dumping Union]

Adjusted the VLM5030 K3 thru K10 coefficients to be based not on
reading the K2 rom but based on the index itself <<6 or 7. This makes
the games sound much better and explains the very small ram size used
for coefficients other than K1 and K2. This needs further
investigation and figuring out of the die schematic to settle
completely. [Lord Nightmare]

Various gottlieb.c fixes [Tafoid]
* Verified through playtesting, manuals and in-game service modes all
dips in the driver. Consolidated and added Dip Locations based on
all available information.

Create profile and load u8 binary into CMP
execute database update and take note 3 prompts
Ok To All, No To All, No To All
Perform Scan + fix
then rebuild from update pack or newer ROMs/sets etc.

"coin impulse" in mame.ini
what is this setting for and what is the min/max values ?

Code:


0 = obbey driver
-1 = disable impulse
> 0 = set time... is this in seconds ? and what is the maximum value (seconds)?



and the "hide_cursor" setting. what does it hide ?

I'm asking for some help because I couldn't find more info in MAME's source code.

It's the answer to the common prompts when reading in a mame dat......
however what you select there is up to you...(I actually use always YesToAll and OK)
The prompts tell you what's wrong with the data.

Commonly it's about parent/clone relationships which cause issues when you fullmerge the sets...

This thread will explain the whole Qbert fiasco. (Yes, it starts off being about Journey, but stick with it).

I believe coin_impulse is mainly for games with "easter egg" codes that involve holding down a coin switch (e.g. the hidden characters in the Japanese version of Marvel Super Heroes)

hide_cursor will probably go away - it's completely the wrong way to 'solve' the problem it purports to fix.

I figured (but am not sure) that the problem is using the builtin lightgun cursors vs using the os cursors; some people either don't like the lightgun ones or don't know how to hook them up.

there is also the case of a clone which gets renamed but a zipfile with the same name already exists: in that case the clone goes in the backup folder and you might need a second scan (or a rebuild from backup folder, depending on your options) to properly fill the romset

Yeah, very true. This happened with tempest3 few versions back, so it had to be manually moved out in order for rebuild to be completed.

We should have a hand-shaped cursor for chess games (maybe with a second frame where it's "grabbing") and a normal arrow-shaped mouse-pointer for future use of the mouse with the built-in UI (and for interacting with clickable artwork outside of chess games).

#267150 - 10/24/11 06:04 PM


hide_cursor is for simply allowing or not allowing MAME to grab and hide the Windows mouse cursor when you enable mouse input. It is set to on by default, which is equal to how MAME dealt with it in a previous version. Lightgun cursors are still there, they move at a different speed than the OS cursor.

One of the MESS developers wanted this feature for chess games, but I can think of other examples too.
Such as: I often play games in windowed mode, using plain PC keyboard as input. If I want to play Rave Racer or Ridge Racer 2, there's no easy way to choose the advanced course with keyboard since the selection thing goes way too fast. It's doable with mouse, so I just start the game with mame gamename -mouse -nohc, and can play the game and let attract mode run in the background without me having to alt-tab out of MAME every time cause it stole the OS mouse cursor.

if I remember correctly the tempest one suffered from the circular rename (which was fixed in 4.01)...but anyway..yes, it's always a good idea to rebuild the backupfolder to the current collection after one initial fix run since fix-missing only looks for setnames (and parent/clones), while the rebuilder checks all files (and does it fast).....I could change that someday...but hey...no time

According to Taskmanager, my memory usage goes up about 327MB. Your pagefile should take care of the memory if you don't have enough physical RAM. I would start by checking that setting.

Just manually move tempest3 out of your Destination path (full set) into backup path then execute rebuilder using backup path as source and then update packs/other sets as source and all will be fine.

At one time following the input rewrite from several years ago, MAME applied a 4-way diagonal A->D input map for Q*bert by default. This meant that those who had analog joysticks such as the Ultimarc U360 would be mapped in the same orientation as the original joystick (which was just a "normal" 4-way joystick rotated 45 degrees on the control panel). Then more recently, some changes were made that took this benefit away.

Without speaking for Tafoid, I believe his recent change is an attempt to meet in the middle; now the joystick is treated as an 8-way to allow for diagonal inputs to be mapped and used once again.

And by the way, many thanks to Tafoid for unearthing this one! Hopefully it's better now.

So fix your coding, damit. ROM names should allow any characters permitted in a filename in a zip file. You shouldn't be depending on ASCII delimiters if you have no way of escaping them - it's a bad coding practice at the best of times.

/me calls for asian characters usage!

well..since MAME supports loading from decompressed files, the rom names should have only filesystem compatible chars (so no |<>: ) but "=" is fully ok...

You'll want at least a gig for it, and more when the DRC lands.

It is unifying of the notation so that I feel bad because he has said "Fixed", "errors".
But the following is completely wrong even checked from the view of notation and pronunciation.

OK, now I get why Cave players laugh at Touhou ones. I can hardly see what I am doing between so many explosions and streaming is not always the best solution.

If that's the case, you have a poor design with no encapsulation. You should refactor your code to better hide implementation details. It will save you a lot of hard work when you want to change things.

It really is bad coding practice to have a delimiter that you can't escape. That's why every practical format provides a way to escape them (e.g. quotes to escape comma in CSV, XML character entities, backslash escape in C strings).

Seriously, take some good advice instead of trying to defend your code. You're not making yourself look any better.

I suspect reports of missing SH3 limitation slowdown will pour in after that.

There's a quiz game where one of the ROM names ends in a period.
Windows filesystem does not allow that.

Windows filesystem (i.e. NTFS) supports it fine. It's just the utilities that don't allow you to create such files (Explorer, standard command line tools, standard save dialogs). You can easily create such files with Cygwin tools or simple C programs.
