Excuse my ignorance,

but I explored MAME and emscripten in the last weeks a bit, and stumbled over a minor showstopper.

The Documentation at Compile MAME Chapter emscripten

states Emscripten 2.0.25 and later, and I couldn't get any MAME version from 0.234 and up to compile anything successfully on current debian.

Thanks to some friendly person on github I got pointed to the version Emscripten 3.1.28 (later versions break on the aio stuff currently!).

So in my opinion it would make sense to update that chapter in this regard.

Another minor side note, but it might have been some emscripten cache issue locally here, at first compile I had some missing functions errors at compile, but rerunning the emmake process fixed that one.

@holub: Actually I did test 3.1.28 and had success (fresh debian bookworm installation), I still have to find some time to get into updating the documentation and make a pull request like Duke said when i find the time

Can confirm emmc 3.1.28 is the latest version that builds successfully, I was also under the impression it was 3.1.25 until i tried it after reading the aforementioned github post.


While we're talking about docs, search is currently broken for the published doco at docs.mamedev.org although it appears to be an upstream issue with the sphinx_rtd_theme, i have raised https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues/12181 for visibility.
