Hi all,

MAME OS X 0.124 is up. Changes:

  • Upgrade to 0.124 baseline.
  • Support HID devices like PS/2 to USB as separate joysticks.

Grab it here:

I feel like this is a stupid question and the answer is probably right in front of me, but I can't seem to figure it out: after MAME OS X audits your ROMs, how do you find out which ones are bad? Clicking on the "Good" tab shows you the good ROMs (obviously), but I don't see a way of getting a "Bad" list.

I'm guessing that given that MAMEOSX is a MAME build and not a simple Front-End - the ability to divine what sets are missing or incomplete is not given.

In part, the rule is:

Quote:

IV. Derivative Works

Derivative works are allowed under the MAME license. However, you are discouraged from providing specific functionality that goes against the philosophy of the MAME team. Specifically:

* Do not provide a means of generating a list of games that specifically identifies those games for which the user does not have image files. This only encourages users to seek out sources for illegal ROM, CD, and hard disk images in order to "complete" their collection.


This does NOT apply to Front-Ends that use the MAME executable externally or any 'rom' management programs.

Virtua Fighter 2 and 3 cause a Fatal Error on PPC. I've not tried on Intel yet.

I think they're both broken on baseline. Many things have rotted since we lost Ville to WoW ;-)

Thanks for the explanation, and Dave: as always, thanks for your continued work on MAME OS X.
