Screwed up.. in what why? Seems quite fine in my view.

Aaron took a lot for time on this driver, adding proper emulations and using flyer/screenshots/actual video to determine how everything was laid out.

If you see a glaring bug and have some documentation/samples/video to back it up, please issue a bug report at MAME Testers. Unfortunately, even as I've been subject to: personal recollection and memories of a game are often not considered undeniable proof.

Perhaps this is a discussion for outside of a MacMAME forum..

Yeah, Gorf is extremely unlikely to be incorrect now - there was a ton of reference material used in the rewrite, as Tafoid says. If you remember different, you may be getting old. Happens to the best of us. Otherwise, feel free to try and make your case on MAMETesters.

Mr. patmcfar8, have you tried Mame32 on your new Macbook Pro under
Boot camp though Windows XP? Would it be possible for you to test and let me know if that new Macbook Pro runs Mame32 Killer Instinct 1 and 2 playable? I'm thinking of getting a the new SR Macbook Pro. Thanks

Why would you run MAME32 on a MacBook? smile Either MAME OS X or SDLMAME would run KI just as fast.

I did try Mame OS X vers.114, on a Mac Pro Quad core (at the Apple store a couple of months ago) and KI1/2 was dog slow, and un playable. Then I tried one of their iMacs and a Macbook Pro, same performance. Still unplayable. Now, I never got a chance to test the Apple stores macs with SDLMAME (requires admin rights to copy over SDL.framework), or Macmame .103u2. I can't believe its this hard to get a real answer and proof if KI1/2 can run on a Mac OS X, or using Boot Camp in Windows XP on a Macbook Pro (Santa rosa models). Don't know if I'm going to have to research a way for a thumbdrive to boot camp off the thumb drive just to test this out. And no, I don't just want a dedicated Windows PC machine to play my Killer Instinct 1 and 2. I know I want to up grade my mac mini (2nd gen 1.4ghz PPC, 1GB SDRAM) to something new.

MAME OS X has since been fixed to enable the DRC on Intel Macs (the same magic ingredient that makes MAME run KI/KI2 fast on Windoze). The latest version should run KI/KI2 flat out with sound on any Intel-based Mac (even my first-gen Intel Mini runs well most of the time).

*blush* actually, no, I have not done a release with DRC enabled, yet. I think the core fixes were in 0.115 or 0.116. In any case, this is another reason I want to get 0.116 out very soon.

Good, and then maybe someone could report back some details on either an Imac or on an Macbook Pro on how well Killer Instinct 1 and 2 sound and play. Is it playable without any choppiness or sound choppiness? Compared to my girlfriends gateway laptop running an AMD Turion 64 X2, 2Gb SDRAM, and 256GDDR, KI1/2 plays fine for me. Thanks

The Turion is slower than any Core 2 Duo made, so it'll be fine.

I think it's great that the most fruitful conversation concerning Mame OS X 0.116 is in the forum for a version of Mame that has been out of date for nearly two years.
