MAME News & fixed vMAME - November 17,1998 by JoseQ
I've got some MAME news for those interested in theprogress of MAME 0.34. Nicola has announced the close ofcode nearing and is asking all developers that haveunfinished drivers to submit them. This means that whatyou have seen up to MAME 0.34b7 is probably what you'llsee on the official MAME 0.34 once it is released. Asyou already know, it is planned to have a cool round1000 games emulated. Since the close of code announcementsa couple of interesting things have shown up.
Bryan McPhail, Data East extraordinaire, has submittedhis drivers among which a playable version of Oscar cameout. I don't remember completely about this game, but itcame out by the time Karnov was out, and I believe it wasbased on similar graphics hardware. This game has 3 processors though, so don't expect any magic out of yourIntel CPU. In this driver, also Ghostbuster and Mazehunterare added to the MAME list.
Interestingly enough, even a preliminary CPS-2 driverwas submitted by Paul Leaman. The driver, designed forStreet Fighter Alfa, had been developed up to the pointof identifying the graphics and some other details, but thecode is really encrypted. No word on who will continueworking on this driver if anyone.
You will probably also see some speedups in variousgames including the just added TMS34010 games (MK, NBA Jam,Smash TV, etc.). Talking about speed, you may want to checkthe updated version of vMAME which has included the joystickfix. You can download this from TheOfficial vMAME Page. This version of MAME is supposedto be faster AND it includes the joystick fix, so you shouldprobably give it a try. Thanks for reading!
