I just noticed:

- Taisen Mahjong Final Romance 4 says 1985. It's 1998.

Well, that's all for now...

Yay! The Mac version was just released, for those that don't know. And it's great- everything is up-to-date with one of the newest MAMEs. I didn't get any errors in playing any games, which was great.

A few Mac bugs to point out, though, and I'm not sure how quickly they'll get fixed, since Bannister is on vacation... sigh... but here they are:
-Whenever you start M1, the games play music fine. But after a few games, the sound either does two things: It crackles incessantly, or certain games (especially Capcom games) get extremely quiet. Sometimes, game music won't play at all. The first time I tried the new version and went through a few songs first, the SNK games played silence. The only way to make these problems go away is to quit M1 and start it back up.
-Tetris Plus is still extremely preliminary, but you probably already knew that. Pretty much every track except for the first one crackles so much that you can't hear the tunes.

Regardless of these flaws, 0.7.6 for Mac is excellent and it actually seems a bit faster than before! And it's nice that the annoying bug where specific games would cause a Mac SIOUX window to pop up when selected (i.e. Toobin' and Vindicators) is long gone.

Thanks, R.B. and R.B. and everyone else who contributed to this! laugh

Yup - I meant to say that in the documentation, but in brief, neither Belmont or myself has been able to find the endian bug in the YMF271 code yet, and rather than delay the release indefinitely I decided to put it out anyway, since there are on balance fewer bugs in this version than in the last one!

Bandwidth of my server heavily exceeded! :shiver:
Transfer limitation is 1GB/day on my server, and it was 1.8+GB yesterday..
My server already limits file transfer and no images are displayed now.

I have moved files and images to my old server temporarily and only my home page looks normal.

I think it'll calm in a few days.

And I'm glad you DID release the port now instead of waiting, R.B. smile This newest M1 was probably my most anticipated release of 2005. Maybe even more than Tiger.... almost. :p

BTW, another thing I noticed: Cruis'n USA seems to be missing a radio song. It starts out like an Elvis number, sorta.

Any chances of adding the following missing games,all are emulated in MAME as of now:

NeoGeo:
Ghostlop
Jockey Grand Prix
Zintrick - no music there as far as I know, but there are SFX.

Seibu SPI:

Raiden Fighters 2 - No, it's still not in the gamelist, at least on the Windows build
Battle Balls/Senkyu
E-Jan High School

CPS2:

Progear

And any chances of adding these drivers:

simpl156 games (Magical Drop, Osman, etc).

psikyo4 and psikyosh games (Gunbird 2!).

ssv games (Vasara has kinda nice music)

other suprnova games (currently only Cyvern and Sengeki Striker are supported)

For drivers to be added to M1 they need to have a seperate sound CPU, none of these systems have that, they all use one all powerful cpu to drive everything.

Cyvern and Sengeki Striker are supported at a HLE level (black box emulation) but doing this for all games on unsupported hardware would be impractical, requests will not be taken for these types of drivers.

The CPS2 and NeoGeo games shouldnt be a problem to aadd but the SPI games need some special loving to get going, so this may happen eventually...

What about Toki? I heard that was going to be added a while back. Did that not have a separate sound CPU or something?

Right, forgot about that. Sorry. wink
At least I can hope for Progear.

suprnova games with a full sound test menu which allows access to all the music tracks can be added relatively easily to M1.

If you'd been around when I was collecting errata for 0.7.5 you'd have Progear already. Since you weren't you'll have to wait for whenever I next do a release ;-)

Any games which were mentioned and acked by me between 0.7.4 and now that don't yet exist in M1 probably were attempted at be added and couldn't be made to work. IIRC this definitely includes Toki.
