GroovyMAME 0.190 - Switchres v0.017e is out.

Starting from this version, I'll upload GroovyMAME as a self-extracting 7zip file, along with the rest of files from the official MAMEdev package. The configuration file (mame.ini) with GroovyMAME's specific options is already included in the package, so there's no need to create it manually from command line. Hopefully this will make things easier for new users.

I have posted the Linux binary version: groovymame64_0190.017e_linux.tar.bz2

Thanks for the new builds everyone. I'll be updating my cabinets this week hopefully.

There are some games which use a permanent 512 x 224 display mode, and very few which even use an interlaced mode (Ranma 1/2: Chounai Gekitou-Hen, despite being rendered at 256 x 224). I think MAME's system default is 512 x 224 for this cause?

That could possibly explain the behaviour.  I suppose this could be fixed with an INI change?

What exactly do you want to fix? As I understand, the system originally could change from 256 px to 512 in the next scanline and there are many games which do this at some point (if I recall, BSNES' author thinks that it could do it even in the middle of a scanline), so the safest bet is 512 x 240 as MAME does (and remembering the couple of titles which use an interlaced mode). For the games using 256 x 240 you shouldn't notice any difference, but of course you can force GM to use this mode via .INI.

I've updated to MAME 0.190 now. Can someone please explain to me exactly what has changed with hiscore handling and how I get it working again? I'm reading that you no longer need a patched version simply the hiscore.dat. I've been trying to set plugin directories and I can't for the life of me get the hiscore working again.  :angry:

In your mame.ini find options


Quote:

plugins 1
plugin hiscore,cheat




Then make sure it's enabled in plugin.ini


Quote:

cheat 1
cheatfind 0
console 1
data 1
dummy 0
hiscore 1
layout 0
timer 0


Try this?

Also make sure to delete the hiscore.dat from the old patch if it is still present, otherwise it will interfere with the plugin. The new lua plugin should have a hiscore.dat self-contained in its script directory.

I have to be missing something but from what I can see everything seems correct? This is on two separate builds I'm having the same problem. I have a fresh hiscore.dat. Whenever I start mame, it won't show any plugin. Then if I close and reopen it says error reading plugin.ini and my plugin ini file will be blank. Any other suggestions?

I've attached my screen cap

I have posted the Linux binary version: groovymame64_0190.017e_linux.tar.bz2

So it's 6:20am here...been up all night building my computer, installing Windows, and attempting to get CRT Emudriver with GroovyMAME to work. CRT Emudriver is working (or at least displays a windows desktop on my CRT monitor), but I can't find GroovyMame 0.190 for Windows to download...am I crazy or does it not exist?

I'm following Recap's tutorial which goes to the master GroovyMAME google drive repository: https://drive.google.com/drive/folders/0B5iMjDor3P__aEFpcVNkVW5jbEE

I downloaded 0.190 and it seems to be Linux only with a tarball file? I downloaded GroovyMAME 0.189 and that is Windows complete with a mame64.exe...but I just spend an entire week downloading 0.190 with all it's CHDs (562 GB!!!), and don't have 0.189. Please let me know if I'm missing something here, I'm taking a nap ;)

Thank you! What does "suppression patched" mean by the way? (still learning all this stuff!)

A guy called MKChamp used to put out a patch to enable hiscores in MAME which also disabled the "nag" screens you get when running a game for the first time.

Since MAME now has a plugins system which handles the hiscores, MKChamps' patch just deals with suppressing the nag screens. There are options in your mame.ini to control it.

funkycochise, I think the problem is that people always use the "official" places first...so when everybody suggests this tutorial, and they go to that link listed in the tutorial, and they see all the other versions listed there, but the most recent 0.190 isn't working, we turn back to the forum to see what the developers suggest.

THANK YOU for posting those though! - it is surely appreciated.

My Windows builds for 0.190 were uploaded to Google drive in 29 September. What's the problem?

Hi Calamity, following the link on your initial post, it seems that the 29 September upload is the Linux version, not the Windows version. That's where the confusion was.

Aside from the Linux version, there are a couple of Windows builds, as always. This time however I uploaded them as .exe self-extracting files, and unfortunately Google drive is hiding these for anyone except me, it seems, you know, .exe files are evil. I'm surprised no one else complained, definitely nobody is using my builds anymore. I'll replace these files by their .7z equivalent.

You're being sarcastic  ;)

I guess many/most (some?) people like the suppression patched exe's that bit better than the non-patched ones.. 

Personally I would have liked you to keep that patch in the official "groovy" release, but I do understand your position on it given the quite vicious stance of the official mame devs on supression patches, and you being connected more closely with them now.

You could consider releasing both a non-patched and a patched binary (even while keeping the default ini settting for the patched version on "off"). That way -you- don't choose sides, but let the users do. Everybody would (could) be happy and the download statistics would speak for themselves.

Itís important that your ę official Ľ build remains available.
Even if we, experienced user, know what they need (special build),
I believe itís important for newcomers to keep groovy simple.

thank you for your work, Calamity

I don't update groovymame every release and if I do I compile groovymame with my custom mods plus mods imported from ARCADE32/64 :)
