Calling Plays In MAME Atari Football Version 2
« on: December 09, 2017, 08:44:35 am »
Hi,
I'm trying to play atari football on MAME and am having the same problem with calling plays.  I have an X-arcade tankstick hooked up to the game.  It all works, I just can see and don't know what buttons cycle through the plays.  I'm running version 2.  It doesn't show the plays on the screen.  Any help appreciated!

I also heard there is a version that has the plays on the screen to cycle through.  What is the ROM name for that version.

Thanks in advance.

Best regards,

Kelly

Not sure if version 2 means Revision 2 (atarifb) or Atari Football II (atarifb2).

In atarifb, to select plays, press your normal Button 1 (CTRL, Left Mouse Button, Joystick button 1). If you want to see the playbook art, that's provided as a Bezel, which is part of MAME's artwork system. (Search for MAME Bezel Artwork for more info)

You likely only need to grab the artwork zip from http://mrdo.mameworld.info/mame_artwork_ingame.php and add it to your mamedir\artwork directory.
