Questions
« on: March 25, 2006, 09:08:16 pm »
Will Powermame support all buttons for a quad set-up with 4 players?
Are there any reviews anywhere for powermame?
What are the opinions here?  Is powermame worth replacing my regular build of mame?
I think powermame looks great! I cant really test it until a joystick is finished.  I dont wanna go through the hassle of building a joystick around the idea of powermame if it's not good.  I am planning my cabinet around this idea right now, with light up buttons and all.

If you want to unleash the true capabilites of the LEDWIZ, then Powermame is the best.....

Many very cool and innovative options....
Wait for the next update for some cool voice options that Mike is working on...

Touch notch build if you are looking for bells and whistles.....

PLUS, Mike will take sugguestions on improvement.....
It feels like a community project....

Sounds good.  So will it support a 4 player set-up?

Yes.  Why wouldn't it?  What do you mean by support?  Powermame is made to handle plenty of LEDWiz's for the lights.  Other than that, there is nothing different with it than regular mame.  I'm not counting the 49 ways, because they could be set up to work with regular mame as well.

You wouldn't be building a joystick around powermame.  If you want the bells and whistles with lights and such, this is where it's at.  It's very new, so no reviews exist yet, other than what is at MikeQ's site and in this Powermame forum.

I don't have a 4 player setup, but I don't see why not.  It does everything Mame does and I believe you can hook up to 4 LEDWIZ if you buy the right hardware.....

If MAME handles 4 players, PowerMAME handles 4 players. 

PowerMAME is MAME.  Just with more

I just wasn't sure if the attract mode pattern accommodated all buttons for any quad layout I might set up.  The pattern in the demo video looked like it was set up for the 6 button layouts of the 2 joysticks. 

I also wasn't sure if it would light up the buttons in use for players 3 and 4.

You have to create the patterns.  They are unique to each control panel.  You create LWA files using the LEDWiz control panel and PowerMAME uses them.
