    Default MAME Tournament Discussion Thread

    With all due respect to Mr. Jaba, that MAME32 version is sorely outdated. (Is that version .62?) Here's the link to grab the newest one:

    http://www.classicgaming.com/mame32qa/

    Be forewarned, though, that you have to go through FilePlanet channels to download this file. If you don't mind waiting, I should be able to host the newest MAME32 version later this evening. Also, if you do download MAME32 through that link, please download version .95, and not .95.6 (sometimes the intermeditary versions have bugs that regular version do not).

    Many thanks!

    Whoops! I'll grab then new one then.

    Someone told me that they can't get that Galaga ROM to work because Mame claims that there are files missing. I got it to work with MacMAME on a cumoter that had no other ROMs installed. Let me figure out whats going on.

    This is why I started things a few hours early...

    Chris

    UPDATE: Galaga ROM replaced. I tested this one myself on a fresh install of MAME. It should work no problem.

    I also updated the MAME link to reflect Gapporin's information. I cannot host a file this big because yahoo small business limits uploads to 5 megs. 100 meseta to the first person who can host the file!!!

    If your MAME program is old, the ROM might be as well. Once I get .95 up and running, I'll check and see if my Galaga file's up to date.

    EDIT: Do you have cable/broadband by any chance, Jibbajaba? If so, could you host the new MAME32? It would mean so much to me and my 56k modem. :P

    DOUBLE EDIT: Well, I guess you can't. I'll try, but it might take a while...

    The ROM works just fine with the latest version of MAME. As per the rules, the players MUST use the ROM posted here.

    Can't get it to work with latest MAME32 and the zip you posted - the ROM files seem to have the wrong names in the zip :/

    Thank you very much, Flack!

    As for Galaga, see if this file will work:

    http://free.angeltowns.com/gapporin/galaga.zip

    Also make sure that you are updated to the latest version of MAME32.

    Ah, that one works for me. It is the one I originally had on my computer. The one originally offered doesn't have the right filenames.

    So, can we use this one officially?

    Yeah, go ahead and use it. It's still Galaga (rev. B), and no built-in cheats or anything like that has been added. It's just the more updated ROM set.

    The ROM Jibba posted worked for me (I'm running MAME .93).

    Jibba, when everything gets squared away let me know and I'll clean up this thread for you.

    Well I don't understand why those files weren't working for some people, but I'm glad we got it squared away. Thanks Gapporin and Flack! I'm glad we are ironing out the bugs duing pre-season play...

    Since we've already broken the "don't post in his thread" thing, quick question: are we to submit our first try, or do we play until we are happy with the results? Obviously this is one of those "no one will know" things, but we are running on honor system afterall. Sorry to clog the thread up with posts.

    Oh no, you can play as much as you want. The idea is that you have until Sunday night to play as many games as you can and come up with the best high score that you can. When we start assigning obscure MAME ROMs, you'll be thankful for the 48 hours of practice time!

    What about dipswitch settings? To avoid possible problems in the future, maybe you should list the proper settings for the games' dipswitches. I'm not saying people are going to cheat, but I don't want to have 3 lives in a game and be competing against someone who is inadvertantly using 5 lives per credit or an easier mode.

    Just something to think about...

    Good question! DIP Switches should be left to their default settings. To make sure that this happens, I will post the regular settings for each game as it is introduced. The default settings for Galaga should be:

    Service Mode - Off
    Difficulty - Easy
    Demo Sounds - On
    Freeze - Off
    Rack Test - Off
    Cabinet - Upright
    Coinage - 1 Coin / 1 Credit
    Bonus Life - 20K, 70K, 70K
    Lives - 3

    All the Unknowns should be Off as well.

    If you want a good set of rules hammered out and moulded over 2-3 years, then check the FAQ we use for the Llamasoft Lleague at YakYak.org

    It includes such stuff as listing the dip settings, picture submission, play ethics and the such.

    I'd love to take part in this, but figure I only have enough time to compete in the Llamasoft one...
