Well, the problem is that people looking for MAME for the Mac are going to tend to find "MacMAME" first. Whoever runs MacMAME.org should at the very least update with info about MAME OS X and SDLMAME + frontends (much as the Xmame page has), because I really don't think MacMAME's coming back.

I found a page that says otherwise >: )

No, that's not actually what it says, and it was written almost a year ago.

Just tried searching for "mac mame" on Google, and MAME OS X doesn't show up at all. Upon closer inspection of the MAME OS X web page, I realize that I never use the word "Mac" on there at all. I'll rectify that when I push out the next version, and hopefully that'll help the Googlebots.

Given the progress that Haze and co. have made on CPS-3, the next version of Mame OS X cannot come soon enough! Thanks, Dave!

RE: Gorf, those colours on Astro Battle are WAY off - always have been but I've never really thought any more of it!

I have a genuine Mini-Myte machine and can submit video or whatever else if people wish. It's not that the blue shouldn't be blue or anything, it's just that the blue looks nothing like the blue on a real machine. For instance. Also, i'd probably say the same at some of the other colours too. The red maybe?

It's probably a futile exercise though since monitors can all be setup differently but I think my machine is the first I've ever seen where you can actually see the yellow eyes on the green invaders. More often than not the monitors on Gorf's have seen so much use that the colours can be very poor. Oh, yeah, which reminds me, yellow eyes. Not orange :o) Also the scores are yellow, not orange.

I've just been out to check my machine and never bothered to look before but the machine has done less than 10,000 plays since new (coin counters are still connected) which probably explains it's lovely condition!!!

The problem is all the differences you describe could be caused by someone having given the knobs on your monitor a tweek or the monitor needing a cap kit or any number of other things.

They could indeed.

That person would be me then. When I bought it, it looked crap with lot's of bleeding and all the usual you get from Gorf machines. I even knocked the guy down in price by 100 because i thought the monitor had gone past it LOL!

When I got it back I spent about 2 hours adjusting it up properly and as I say, it now has the loviest picture on a Gorf machine I have ever seen smile Okay, these days (6 years later) it could use a little more adjustment, the screen is getting a bit dark and in particular the yellow is getting a bit dark.

For what it's worth, I usually set the RGB voltage levels, drives and cutoffs properly with a scope as long as the P-P levels are given in the manual. Haven't done that on this one though.

Whatever way you want to cut it though, looking at the Astro Battles level on my cab, and the usual flyer, I see green invaders with yellow eyes and yellow scores, not orange smile

This one as well look:

Yellow, not orange and the blue is much less of a bright blue.

Anyway, just thought I'd mention it.

How then, would you recommend someone go about providing the necessary evidence to show that MAME is incorrect?
