So in the last week there have been a few threads have hinted at the need for a MESS dumping project.

What if we create a wiki where people can post information on wants and needs? Sort of a running wish list. The more details the better (ebay link ftw).

I know I'd be willing to help out and fund a purchase here and there if I actually knew what to buy. Also we could potentially track what people have if it is needed at a later date. e.g. I have a collection of channelf carts that if they are ever needed again, no point in buying them...

The new svn deal looks like it has a wiki section http://messdev.fdns.net:8000/tractest/wiki , But I admit I have not logged in yet or know if that is the best place for such thing. Unless someone is willing to be a cash collector/lead purchaser this might be the best first step.

Any thoughts?

Please use The Official MESS Wiki

I know this isn't linked anywhere on the main site yet, we are waiting to see if it gets abused by kiddies first (which I seriously doubt will happen, but mamedevs promise me it will).

It will - the MAME entry on Wikipedia gets vandalized on a pretty regular basis.

Chris - Is that MESS only or MAME/MESS like the title says? I thought mamedev was using http://www.mamedev.org/devwiki/index.php?title=Main_Page

Either way I'll take a look later and add a page for a MESS dumping page. Seems like a good place.

That MAME/MESS is in the title because we want to add a complete reference to all internal MESS functions, and a lot of those come from MAME.

Also it was actually created before the MAMEDev one (though not public).

While working on several drivers I've also been buying hardware and software to dump here and there.

I whipped up some basic intro text to put into MESS wiki.

But...

I don't have permission to create the page. Chris or Duke can you help? You can see link on the start page. If you create it I will toss in my first draft in there and we can edit from there...

Thanks.

my error when I try to save page...

I can provide any necessary FTP space and then some in order to provide a centralized location for newly-dumped or other unMESSed ROMs, you'd just have to bear with an upload cap of 80 kilobytes a second. Since that can quickly get into nebulous legal territory, however, contact me in private on IRC about it. I'm probably going to be at work through the night tonight, but I'll check my messages at around 10PM EST tomorrow.

ht1848: Not sure what went wrong there. I have created a page at http://redump.emubase.de/dev/dumping:info for you. Subpages should be under as dumping:<page> then.

The "reference" namespace should be reserved for info about the internal MAME/MESS workings.

EDIT: There was something wrong with the permissions, it's fixed now.

That's not an error per se, it just means that somebody didn't set it up right. I just registered as MooglyGuy, logged in, and tried to create an initial Lorem ipsum version of the page, and it didn't save any of the changes when I clicked "Save".
