malafe.net Website & latest Mala FE news
« on: February 17, 2019, 02:52:19 am »
Hello,

Of late I have more time on my hands so I fired the old Arcade cab .

I undated to windows 10 and MAME was running sluggish.....

Anyway long story short. What I discovered is:

- Mala isn't really setup to easily use recent versions of Mame
- The website malafe.net has a google unsafe status on it
https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=http:%2F%2Fmalafe.net%2F&hl=en-US

- The Website hosting had expired.   opps... ran out of cash $$$

I will fix this by throwing my own cash at hosting soon and fix the website with the latest version.

If you use the new website (after I fix it) please consider a small donation as Mala is very much a non profit project (just ask my wife  :P ).

Simon

Nice, good to hear this excellent front-end might be getting a bit of a refresh! I've been using it with Win10 and MAME 0.183 for a year and a half or so and it is mostly fine.

I get an occasional crash but haven't experienced it with the error logging on yet so I'm not sure if it's software or hardware...

Update:
1) I have the website up but don't want to upload content until I can get it off Googles browsing unsafe list.

https://transparencyreport.google.com/safe-browsing/search?url=http:%2F%2Fwww.malafe.net%2F&hl=en-GB

I have logged a review with them but so far nothing. Crazy as there is nothing on the website at the moment.

Any ideas?

2) I have an issue with my source code repository and building environment. It was on a PC that no longer exists but I have two copies of the drives. Getting Perforce and Delphi to run and be happy with the licence is an upcoming task.

Thanks for the work Loadman, I have been using MaLa for years
I don't update my cabs often but it would be great to know that I will be able to continue to use MaLa when I do.
I will send a donation as soon as the website is updated with a link.

Still an issue :-(

Good news on this point. Source code version control is working I am able to build Mala again :-)
