Some miscelaneous news found around the Emulation scene. First,development of MAME32 0.35b4 has started already. It was alreadypreliminary built, but support for the triple and quadra modes is stillpending, and it may prove to take some time. Also a bug was found andsquashed. This bug, a memory leak, fixes the corruption of icons onreturning from full screen 16bpp mode. It is still good to know thatMAME32 is being worked on and should be appearing soon. Count onEV to deliver as soon as it is made available to us.

The VBEmu 98 page was updated with a lot of news from theauthor. Some testing done by the author include some speed testsrevealing some games running at full speed on P200s. Go there forthe full set of news.
Some good news for people getting "403 Forbidden Error" whendownloading the ROMs. So that you know, this is caused by usingGetRight. I have nothing against it, but I do have something againstpeople linking to my ROMs. It just so happens that when protectingagainst ROM linkers, some GetRight versions stop working. The latestversion (3.3.3) was verified to work. Also if you're using programs thathave the option to set the "REFERRER" variable. Make sure you set it to"http://emuviews.com" and you should have no problems. Now, thisdoesnt mean you should download everything you see, remember I don'tcover clones, so my ROMsets for MAME will never give you a 100%clean and correct set, so don't try to download all 700 or so files. Alsotake other people in consideration, it is good to use, just not abuse.
In other server news, I moved all the little icon files to the secondEmuViews server to ease the load on the primary one. Please tell me ifthis results in broken images for you. It shouldn't as I've verified with peoplefrom around the world, but if it does, please let me know.I would also like to thank you all for your support. It has beenremendous, and more that I ever expected to have. I'm always amazedat the number of visits I get each day, and I can't thank you enough foryour support. It really motivates me to keep maintaining this site andtrying to make it better for you. Big Thanks for that!Well, that's all for this EV News Update. I'll try to get some news, andalso remember, tomorrow is Rumor Mill time once again. I'll see if I canget two editions out once again. Thanks for reading!
