(Some) .153 MAME CHD games not working
« on: August 05, 2014, 02:50:36 am »
Hi everybody,

Yesterday  I noticed some issues with MAME games that require CHDs (at least that's what I suppose is the similarity that those games share):

In M.A.C.H. 3 for example I see no desert backgrounds but just a plane.
Cliff Hanger stutters to the point it can be described as "non-playable".

I am using .153 roms and .153 CHDs. My MAME.xml is sorted out with RomLister and the "playable only" selection.
But these games still don't work.

NFL Blitz seems to be working fine though.

Do you guys have any idea what could be the problem? If that's just the way MAME is behaving at the moment, how do I (automatically) sort those games out of my MAME.xml rom list?  ???

I think those (Cliff Hanger & M.A.C.H. 3) are laser disc games. admittedly, I haven't really been following MAME for laser disc games. However, I think you need to use something like Daphne for those types of games.

Yeah, I thought that it'd be laserdisc games, but I wasn't sure if it could be a CHD thing in general.

I already use Daphne so it is probably not a problem to sort the MAME version out of the MAME.xml by hand. It's just a few games anyway...
