Solitaire Crashes TouchMaster 8000 on Mame
#367140 - 06/23/17 04:50 AM


Hello there.

I found a serious bug problem that crashes when playing Classic Solitaire on the TouchMaster 8000 using the Mame emulator.


I just want to make sure. I really hope this fixes in the next version.

Thank you.

It's possibly in some mode to fix or skip this problems ?

For example using a differ emulator instead mame ?? I have try to look about MESS but i see now mess it's included on mame build......

There's exist some alternative to test if this problems persist ?

What other emulators emulate the TouchMaster 8000? I'll wait.

For the issue that has already been reported as bug a entry earlier, doubtful that there are any user alternatives other than hoping someone can fix the problem.

As Moogly states, no other emulators run the TouchMaster series...and RA does not count because they use code from MAME....so it won't be fixed unless someone determines the problem and fixes it in MAME.

Has this been 100% verified not to happen on hardware? Midway was pretty well known for shipping crashy code on some of their games, and even the Merit MegaTouch machines often had known-crashing games in early revisions of each package.

I never played any of the TouchMaster products myself even though some were at bars or restaurants. Like a car bumper sticker that I once saw back in the 1980s "I only brake for arcade pong games".


I hope someone that might still have TouchMaster in this day and age can test for that particular bug.

It's one of the most popular games, and it crashes in every version where it's present. Somehow I doubt it's an original hardware bug ;-)

I suspect something with blitter or IRQs personally.

I had thought at the MESS. . . . but it is now an integral part of the MAME itself. . . . .

MESS was integrated into MAME quite a long time ago. At least several years



Windows 10 64 bit OS
Intel Core i7-6700 3.4 GHz
Nvidia GeForce GTX 1060 3GB
16GB DDR4 RAM

MESS was only doing non-coin operated hardware emulation while MAME was covering coin operated hardware emulation.

What did happen was when Micko (Miodrag) was in charge after Aaron handed release duties to Micko, there was a merge with source code of both MAME and MESS sometime 2010 or 2011.

That allowed various developers to make use of both source codes at once in order to emulate coin operated games that may have used hardware components found in computers or consoles which made sense doing that. This then meant MESS builds would be hosted on MAMEdev site.

By about 2014 or 2015, the decision was to have MAME incorporate MESS build altogether and make it all renamed to MAME (full name and no longer having anything to do with the original acronym that Nicola Salmoria had first used when releasing MAME officially in 1997).

It's not super popular, though. The Midway Touchmaster games were far outnumbered by the Merit MegaTouch machines (I've never seen one on location in my life, but I've seen dozens of Merit machines), and by that time most people played solitaire for free on Windows.

Anyway, someone with a working PCB please film what happens when you repro this - either way it'll be interesting.
