Tapper - Mame .212
« on: August 26, 2019, 10:29:21 am »
Does anyone know if there's a fix to make Tapper work in Mame .212? I've searched the web + posted at Mamedev forums but can't find any information about this. There are a number of games apparently based on the same code that also don't work.

Thanks

Mr. Peabody

Use a version where it isn't broken. Or wait until they fix it.

It isn't broken, we're not going to fix it, this is a user error.

I doubt you're referring to this open bug report about frameskip+throttling, so it sounds like you are either missing a driver file (midssio.zip?) or using a ROMset that doesn't match your version of MAME.

Penalty points if you're using a "no-nag" build before confirming that all of the desired games/drivers work properly.   :whap

Those info screens are very useful for troubleshooting.   ;)

It was user error. I'm not sure what happened, but my mame.ini file had gotten corrupted. I deleted and recreated the ini and all is now well :)
