Re: Starting over with MAME

Hi there. RC3 development has stopped for quite some time now. RC4 is in Release Candidate state. It's still strongly suggested to keep a backup of your roms before fixing anything with it, but it seems that there are no major glitches so it should be relatively safe. I would suggest you try playing...

Re: FB Alpha v0.2.97.42

But now it shows some red roms. The same roms were green in RC3.7. If RC4 does that, there's probably a good reason (well, if there's no bug involved). If a rom is shown red in the Database branch, something is missing from it. Either a file is missing from inside the game, or it exists but the che...

Re: FB Alpha v0.2.97.42

Hi and welcome to the forum. I can't speak for RC 3.71 but i know that it is not maintained for quite some time now, so some things may have changed and not supported by RC 3.x any more. I'd suggest to try out RC4. Just have in mind that it's still a beta version. It should be safe but just in case,...

Hi there and welcome here.

RC4 is in beta stage and as you can see here, there is an already reported issue with no-intro dats. You can open a new bug in the bugtracker if you feel there's something wrong with RC4.
