Title: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32/64 custom build
Post by: haynor666 on July 19, 2017, 03:22:12 pm
Here I will post my own GroovyMAME build based on official sources plus extra modifications imported from ARCADE http://arcade.mameworld.info (http://arcade.mameworld.info) (new derrative based on MAMEUIFX) and no nag patch. Some of those changes created by me.

Differences against standard GroovyMAME:

- no nag  - no loading screens or disclaimer info (use option 'skip_gameinfo 1' in mame.ini to activate this function)

Sound modifications:

- QS1000 volume boots (games using this chip has louder audio output)
- audio level fix for m72 driver
- audio level fix for Side Arms
- frequency modification for several audio chips for proper audio speed (Aliens, Crime Fighters, Simpsons, Vendetta)
- fix for Crude Buster, Dark Seal and Vapor Trail (now sound does not change it's pitch/speed during attract mode/game)
- Better NMI value for Jail Break (proper audio pitch?)
- fix for Gradius/Nemesis (discrete emulation is bypassed so no strange audio during play)

Video modifications:

- hack for fixing sprites in neogeo driver (at the moment title screen in sengoku2 is a bit broken)
- removed custom position and size in astrocde and cidelsa drivers (looks very bad on TV/Arcade monitor)
- restored resolution 256x240 (from 240x240) in remaining games in btime driver as well in scregg driver
- video fix for Metamorpic Force (proper offsets)
- small colours fix in nemesis driver (games have now slightly more brighter picture, seems to be more accurate)
- visible area modifications in in ssv driver (changed Air Blade; Dyna Gear)
- visible area modifications for many games in neogeo driver (mostly from 320x224 to 304x224 but for four games even to 288x224 - Zed Blade, Goal!Goal!Goal!, Gururin, Zupapa)
- visible area modification for X-Men,
- visible area modification Super Contra, Gang Busters, Thunder Cross, Teenage Mutant Hero Turtles, Bells'n'Whistles [not in ARCADE32/64]
- visible area modification for Battle Rangers, Double Dragon, Double Dragon II, Thunder Strike, China Gate, Garyo Retsuden [not in ARCADE32/64]
- visible area modification for Express Raider, Exzisus, Liberation, Nova 2001, Rock'n'Rage, Riot City, Wonder Boy 3, Aurail [not in ARCADE32/64]
- visible area modification for Mad Crasher, Gladiator 1984, Super Cross II, Jungle King, Sea Fighter Poseidon, Xain'n Sleena [not in ARCADE32/64]
- visible area modification for many games in namcona1 driver [not in ARCADE32/64]
- visible area modification for many games in system1 driver [not in ARCADE32/64]
- some video fixes in taito_f3 driver (continue screen in Greed Seeker is now visible, the same goes to intro text in Arabian Nights)

Misc modifications:

- slow rendering fix for namconb1
- more accurate video timings in Green Beret
- swapped some IRQ handling in megasys1 driver

32bit build modifications:

- d3d fix for old video cards

very nice, thanks for sharing!
Is this an arcade-only build or does it also contain MESS?
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: Jonny G on July 20, 2017, 06:59:57 am
See top of OP's post, looks like it's based on Arcade, a fork of MAMEUIFX, so no MESS.
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: keropi on July 20, 2017, 09:40:36 am
I am not familiar with "arcade" so it's good to hear there is no MESS in this one :)
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on July 20, 2017, 11:10:37 am
MAME = old MAME +MESS so my build is with MESS part as well just like Groovymame.

^ allright then , thanks for the clarification :)
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on July 20, 2017, 12:47:38 pm
For clarification - ARCADE is build upon old MAMEUIFX code. MAMEUIFX was arcade only build so ARCADE is also MAME with only arcade part, hence the new simple name.

It's sad they're fixing non-bugs whereas this (http://mametesters.org/view.php?id=3954) remains for so many years. Shouldn't be too hard to figure out a hack -- MAME must be the only emulator where you find it.

But hey, what do I know.

Post by: totozero on July 23, 2017, 05:30:51 pm
Hi haynor,
thanks for making this build.

Would it be possible to make another d3dex 64 version with a faster slider for the cpu overclock option ?
Default is slow as hell and it takes ages to reach 200%.
I use it all the time for mvs roms such as mslug and so...

if I do remember the file to be modified is ui.cpp

Code: [Select]
// add CPU overclocking (cheat only)
slider_index = 0;
if (machine.options().cheat())
{
for (device_execute_interface &exec : execute_interface_iterator(machine.root_device()))
{
void *param = (void *)&exec.device();
std::string str = string_format(_("Overclock CPU %1$s"), exec.device().tag());
sliders.push_back(slider_alloc(machine, SLIDER_ID_OVERCLOCK + slider_index++, str.c_str(), 10, 1000, 2000, 1, param));
}
}

and replace with

Quote
// add CPU overclocking (cheat only)
   slider_index = 0;
   if (machine.options().cheat())
   {
      for (device_execute_interface &exec : execute_interface_iterator(machine.root_device()))
      {
         void *param = (void *)&exec.device();
         std::string str = string_format(_("Overclock CPU %1$s"), exec.device().tag());
         sliders.push_back(slider_alloc(machine, SLIDER_ID_OVERCLOCK + slider_index++, str.c_str(), 50, 1000, 2000, 1, param));
      }
   }

I usually make my own builds but I'd like to try yours :wink:

Many thanks, mate.

Does moving slider with CTRL pressed is not enough? It's really fast for me.
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: Nodoyuna on July 24, 2017, 06:18:51 am
Hi
Your version should not have the initial info screens before entering the game, right?
I ask because I keep getting them... Should I activate or deactivate anything in GM?
Thanks in advance

 :dizzy: .... Ooooops... Really ?
I've been in Mame for years and I didn't even notice that holding ctrl enabled "fast-slinding". Guess you can learn something every day even with dumb questions  ::)
Anyways, thanks for the input.

didnít know that slider option through 2 key, above tab key
always thought I was only for volume settings.

for cpu boost, I only used ins key to speed up long boot time
like gradius (before finally ends with a save state for instant boot for that game)

Thank you guys for interesting tips and tricks out there.  :cheers:

also I tested your build haynor : great job !
especially for your precise fixes : will adopt it on the cab.
Iíll keep an older version in second just for kungfum/spartanx
discrete emulation for sounds make them too low and not well balanced.

Thanks Haynor666, this looks like the MAME build I need as I'm updating my 10 year-old MAME cab from MAME .120. The cab features WinXP/32, a hacked ATI 9250 and a 25" Wells Gardner 800 x 600 multi-sync CRT.

One question, I have the full (merged) .187 ROM set but the EXTRAS and VIDEOSNAPS folders I could grab are .188. Does anyone think I'll run into issues running them together?
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on August 06, 2017, 04:04:12 am
Some extras and videosnaps might need renaming but that's all.

Hi haynor666,

while I have a bit of spare time, I tried to compile my own mame build.
I set the build environement as describe in mamdev. Got the current version with git : all went fine and had a shiny mame64.exe, but 188 version.
Then I tried to build a groovy version, as you describe here the patch used.
I have downloaded 187s file and made the folder accessible trough the win32env.bat console.
I then had the patch package tool to the environement.
I tested it with suppression.txt for nag screen as it only touch 2 files.
I run "make" after a while I got my mame64.exe, producing the ini file including the skip_gameinfo entry : all right !

I then tried to build the previous 0186 version, with groovypatch.
when I patched with the d3d9ex.diff and the groovymame diff, I got errors (but it is supposed to be made for this version). Without surprises,
"make" processed failed. I could be more precise with the error if you want.
I just wanted to know witch diff you pass and the order.

Sorry for my dumb questions.
Pierre KFY.

Post by: haynor666 on August 09, 2017, 03:37:08 pm
No nag was fro 187, my patch also but groovymame patch was originally for 186. You can get no nag 186 but sadly my patch will not work with 186.

Before I release other version I have to test this one. It's based on GM 190 patch, still there isn't official GM 191 patch.

NOTE. Haze rewrote SH3 emulation so CV1k games are now much faster. Worth to check if older hardware manage to emulate those games at 100% speed.

Updated first post with new links.

Raibol1 this is GM with D3D9ex but not arcade only. It really does not make sense build arcade only release.

Thanks for posting these builds  :)

Just wondering, would it be useful to post some of these issues (and fixes) at http://mametesters.org/ (http://mametesters.org/)? For example the below seem like issues that may be addressed in the MAME core.

Especially when issue is properly documented and code solution is already included in the description, in my experience they mostly get fixed in the core..

- Bonze Adventure protection fix (no more errors when You die)
- frequency modification for several audio chips for proper audio speed (Aliens, Crime Fighters, Simpsons, Vendetta)
- audio fix for Dark Seal and Vapor Trail (now sound does not change it's pitch/speed during attract mode/game)
- more accurate video timings in Green Beret
- proper video timmings in Iron Horse (very usefull for TV/Arcade monitor)
- Better NMI value for Jail Break (proper audio pitch?)
- swapped some IRQ handling in megasys1 driver
- video fix for Metamorpic Force (proper offsets)
- slow rendering fix for namconb1


Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on November 04, 2017, 10:47:11 am
All those fixes are either hacks so won't be in official mame or changes were not accepted by mamedev (like Iron Horse fix).

Some of those are really not correct (like Neo Geo resolutions changes) - only to improve display/sound not matter if real hardware had or had not such issues/behaviour.

Some changes are just guess or some logical assumptions but not verified.

I forgot to mention that version 200 will be probably last one with support for 32 build. Right now saturn.cpp cannot be compiled with latest compiler. Older compiler works but in some time it will be probably abandoned so it's matter of time unless someone fix saturn.cpp.

Of course there is still source provided so everybody can do it by yourself.

Post by: anchounio on September 07, 2018, 05:26:47 am
I'm curious!
Considering ARCADE is the follow-up to mameuifx, Does ARCADE include all the enhancements of mameuifx?
I mean, all this list:
http://mame32fx.altervista.org/features.htm (http://mame32fx.altervista.org/features.htm)

Therefore, does your groovymame distribution include them all ?   :notworthy: :notworthy: :applaud:
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on September 07, 2018, 05:55:22 am
You are looking at distant past. MAMEUIFX is dead - we have now ARCADE32/64 - http://arcade.mameworld.info (http://arcade.mameworld.info) Since that time many changes has been made in ARCADE32/64. Some new features were added, some old code is no longer needed.

This is modification for groovymame so it does not have GUI just like ARCADE32/64 or MAMEUI64 so everything related to GUI is not present here. Additionally some old code like samples support for Toaplan games it's not here because MAME have now proper code/roms for sound. It does not have any extra game like groovymame but also just like ARCADE32/64.

Since it's based on groovymame it's full MAME build not ARCADE only just like old MAMEUIFX and ARCADE32/64.

There will be a ton on the game/input/optimization side too, that post was only of the 10th of oct. Big release coming.
Combined, upcoming baseline MAME's + Calamity's recent fixes to GM will make an overall better working, more powerful MAME, and I'm going to use that to put to test Calamity's changes in particular, under various conditions, thoughout this fall/winter.

No problem I understand. A bit sad though, I know no other way to get a similar clean list without hand-editing a 10,000+ lines file.
If the romsets themselves were built in separate parts by categories that wouldn't be such a big deal.

I don't understand why MAME doesn't focus on accuracy instead of just compatibility. The only emulator that can "run perfectly" Dark seal is fba, but for some reason the music is in a slower tempo, maybe the author underclock the driver to avoid the speeds up... in mame you can do that putting the sound cpu in a 23% underclock, but is a pain doing it everytime you run the game.

Yes. I've already test it. It's amazing!
Finally we can save the over/underclocks. This have to be a "must" in the futures build of groovymame.

Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32
Post by: haynor666 on December 25, 2018, 06:51:35 am
Initially I wasn't to optimistic about that just like MameSick and You:

Quote
The fix for darkseal and vaportra is no more valid. The function that is commented out is now declared internally in the H6280 CPU core and is always enabled. So those extra lines listed in 202 diff are useless now.

In file h6280.cpp infact there is:

void h6280_device::internal_map(address_map &map)
{
   map(0x1fe800, 0x1fe80f).mirror(0x3f0).rw(FUNC(h6280_device::io_buffer_r), FUNC(h6280_device::psg_w));
   map(0x1fec00, 0x1fec01).mirror(0x3fe).rw(FUNC(h6280_device::timer_r), FUNC(h6280_device::timer_w));
   map(0x1ff000, 0x1ff000).mirror(0x3ff).rw(FUNC(h6280_device::port_r), FUNC(h6280_device::port_w));
   map(0x1ff400, 0x1ff403).mirror(0x3fc).rw(FUNC(h6280_device::irq_status_r), FUNC(h6280_device::irq_status_w));
}
So the only way to enable again the fix would be comment out the line here but with the serious risk to break a lot of other games that uses the same audio CPU.

Robbbert should remove both VAPORTRA.CPP and DARKSEAL.CPP files from his source. The code there is no more valid.

Quote
Because of this, darkseal and vaportra have been reverted back to MAME standard.

 

If someone wants to check the existing audio in everything else that uses the h6280, then we will know if it's a global problem, or just for some games. If it happens for everything h6280-related, then the patch can be done.

But after some disscussion and test of experimental build patch will stay in ARCADe32/64 and my build at least until someone will find some problems associated with this patch :)

All changed games should be fine by now. The only bug left is not working neo-geo cd console emulation due not implemented sprite hack.

Awesome! Canít wait! When diff files are released, I think Iím going to try and compile on groovy arcade (arch Linux). I have a really good windows 10 setup, but curious about making things work on pc Linux.

Thank you once again haynor! I love the neo geo fixes! Will hopefully have it tested on my real neo geo tomorrow. :cheers:

I have compiled a binary for Linux. I was able to compile on a virtual install of GroovyArcade on my mac. Will hopefully be able to compile newer versions in the same manner.

Hi,
Can i use the Groovymame x64 version with my winXP64.
I don't use Direct3D9Ex.
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32/64 custom build
Post by: haynor666 on February 03, 2019, 10:28:44 am
I abandoned XP64 so You cannot use x64 build on XP64. Use x32 instead.

New version is out. Please check neogeo games - raster hack needs examining.

I'm using a text translator if you do not understand me well I'm sorry.



If it's not a lot of hassle,, you would not have compiled a 32bit groovymame 206 not nag.

I using the drivers for the 086b for my guncon2, the official version is only compiled for 64bit ..

My build is also available as 32 bit application.

If You are looking for official groovymame then http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,151459.msg1677161.html#msg1677161 (http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php/topic,151459.msg1677161.html#msg1677161) or better https://b4nd1t0.blogspot.it/ (https://b4nd1t0.blogspot.it/)

BTW. 2019 is last year for 32builds. From 2020 I'm going to build only x64 version.

Versions 207 is out. Neo Geo raster hack is still a bit broken (Sengoku 2 title screen zoom is not correct but other games should be ok).

Reorganized downloads section to simplify management - all versions starting from version 203 will be there and have invidual subdirectories.

@Haynor

Does your latest build include Direct3D9Ex ?  There's a user in another thread trying to use your build on XP because they have an ancient video card that needs the non-power-of-two texture change but they are having issues...

a few weeks ago i downloaded from here a recent groovymame v0.203 x32, now i'm looking for highscore.dat.
where i can find it, someone can help me?

Download official mame package and look into plugins directory or from http://highscore.mameworld.info/download.htm

Build 209 is almost prepared, it only needs updated groovymame patch.

Hello, please go easy on me. I've used Mame64 in the past but want to transition to Groovy Mame for the CRT support.

Do I simply download your build and overwrite the mame application file with your groovymame64_208 file?

Thank you in advance. :)

You can use official mame directory structure and support files, and just execute the new (patched) binary. It helps on windows if you copy the binary to mames root directory. Can replace official mame binary, or rename new (patched) binary.

Thank you haynor666. I compiled 0.211 with patches for linux. Hoping to patch some previous versions and compile on mac too. https://github.com/keilmillerjr/mame-diffs

Has anyone tested current mame on rpi4 yet? Waiting for an updated retroflag case. Curious if the faster hardware will yield a playable speed. 3b+ wasnt quite there yet.

I now have compiled 0206-0211 linux binaries. Also compiled mac os x 0211. I didnít include the groovymame patch in the mac binary. I should have no problem keeping up with the linux and mac binaries. Not sure how far back I will compile. I generally update my romset every month. Not sure about others. But I do provide compiling instructions.

Thank you calamity, mkchamp and haynor! :cheers:

While I'm compiling version 212 I should mention changes:

Implemented hacks from ARCADE32/64 to cpu/psx/irq.cpp and machine/idehd.cpp to make Primal Rage 2 working. I was never interested in this game but since it is fixed in ARCADE32/64 then why not.

Re-added Truxton 2 stereo sound support. It was lost after I removed samples support.

Added deniam.cpp changes to fix trash in games that are in this driver.

Added fixes to midas.cpp just like in ARCADE32/64 to stay in line with neo geo hacks.

Re-added audio boost in m72.cpp driver.

Hi all,

I'm having some issues with the hiscore plugin with this release (probably this was also the case earlier, just I didnt notice until now).

Other plugin (at least the data plugin seems to work fine).

I replaced the mame64.exe (0.212) with the old one in my other installation (0.205) where the hiscore plugin works fine, and it stopped saving hiscores.
When I get back to the original mame64.exe (0.205) it works again.

Any ideas what could be causing this issue? I recall seeing some similar issues googling a bit with the boot.lua where it throws some sort of indexing error, but no real clues if that could be causing it.

Attaching some ini (.txt) files maybe these help :)

Thanks a lot in advance for your support !

Post by: alex2005 on August 18, 2019, 12:26:51 pm
Hey, sorry, yes after some tweaking I sorted it out. It was a problem of my mame.ini, tried one from a clean GM install and worked fine. I had some old parameters that were replaced during this time and did not notice until now.
Thanks anyway!

Post by: haynor666 on August 18, 2019, 05:47:06 pm
I don't update groovymame too often but everytime it's best to re-generate at least main ini file. All other inis usually have one or two lines so it's not necessary. I suggest to get latest plugins directory from official mame.
Title: Re: GroovyMAME/ARCADE32/64 custom build
Post by: alex2005 on August 20, 2019, 03:43:01 am
Thanks for the advise, for sure I'll do that more regularly from now. In fact, regenerating the ini not only fixed the hiscore issue, but also some resolution issues I had for vertical games  :cheers:
