BTW, I strongly disagree with the renaming of the Atari computers. MAME/MESS has separate make and model names. Respect them.

ColecoVision doesn't seem to be working right. The fire button just keeps firing with no imput. I tried to assign different keys but it was unsuccessful in solving the problem. I went back to 0.130 and everything worked fine.
I still have a problem with Super Cobra not having a primary fire button working. Also, the bug where you have to do a reset after exiting a game is still there.
Thanks

mmm, strange. try deleting coleco.cfg in your cfg/ directory.

I'll investigate a bit more this issue anyway, but I tested the driver and seemed to work with the couple of games I tried

"Atari ST" should be "ST".

Just before the 0.131 release, I had changed Atari 800 & c. to have Atari as a manufacturer only. However, it was decided to revert this because otherwise it would have come up as "800" only at system selection in UI (and I guess in Win GUI as well), and it was a not very descriptive name...

[me guessing]Maybe ST had been changed for the same reason...[/me guessing]

The (Win G)UI needs to show the manufacturer string then. Changing the name to include it is a kludge.

You are correct. It was done for consistency, as having just "ST" in the UI/GUI is, as you said, not exactly informative.

Since the UI is part of MAME, and the GUI part of mameui, it would need the teams controlling those areas to show both the manufacturer and model name for MESS only. As I am not part of either team, there's not much I can do about it.

But, R.Belmont, it's something I'm sure you could do.... at least for MAME.

but in MAME it makes much more sense to only show the description and not the manufacturer... and in MESS the manufacturer is only necessary in a few cases...

how can we solve the dilemma?
