MAME 0.139 XML?

Recommended Posts

I am trying to find a 139 xml on the hyperlist site before I build my own with Don's tools.  What are you guys using for your XML?  is there a recommended database?  Someone willing to share it?

 

Thank you

Don't think there is one on HyperList. It says 167 ongoing

People use mame so many ways I'm sure there is one about somewhere but prob best just to make one.

Actual MAME 139?

That would make it at least over 3 years old. You'll probably need to make your own for a version that out of date.

I have a 139 xml on my shield TV. I don't know if I edited it or not. I'll up it when I go home

Ah... does the Android version of MAME only work with old romsets or something?

mame4droid uses the 0.139u1 romset, I think retroarch has 3 versions of mame:  (mame-2003 0.78)  (mame-2010 0.139u1) and the current version available through git

Right, this is probably why the OP is looking for .139u1 XML.  If you use MAME4Droid or MAME-2010 (from Retroarch) you would want an XML that matches.

Why would anyone want to run MAME 0.78?  I understand that some games ran better with the older version but I don't think it would make any difference if you're using a fast Android device like the Shield.  I don't think there are any games in .139u1 the shield can't run.

I eventually just created my own xml based on roms i had from my 139u1 set.  Seems to play everything except roms that require CHDs even if available.  I need to filter it down some more based on controls, etc 

 

When you guys say current version through git, do you mean the 0.175 that is out and the emulator is on git? Can someone elaborate please.

 

Also a couple more questions, i was using mame4droid and switched to retroarch,  Do you guys set your controls by bring up the mame menu or within retroach itself?   Finally, I downloaded the retroarch core system folder posted on this forum, what exactly is the purpose of it?

 

Thanks and sorry for the noob questions,

I'll try to answer them with my limited knowledge (have not bothered to properly configure mame yet!)

In retroarch the guy reference I to the different cores there are a few in the online updater-core updater.
The one without a year think it's MAME (Arcade) or something is the most current retroarch port of MAME. Not sure how current it is, didn't see much information on their forum. Last a sore it was .170 but may be later now.

As far as I know controls for mame cores get setup in mame itself not retroarch.

The system folder is where you put bios files for any and all systems that need them.

 

EDIT: baezl if you can post up your 139 xml. I would like to use one for my setup

I ended up making my own.  Keep in mind I filtered it to working games only, then filtered casino, quiz, lightgun etc since it was for my shield.

I finished my MAME 0.139 xml for my Nvidia Shield TV :nyam1:

This xml have all working games, included casino, quiz, mahjong, etc. All game that works its in the xml. I just cleaned bios and non working games, so in total are 7396 games (my MAMEUI shows 7416 working games, but i think that this 20 extra games are bios). I created too the respective genre xml files. Enjoy it!

MAME 0.139.7z

Now that we have a 0.139, what about a "diff" of added roms for each of these?  They are all the cores available to us on Android using RetroArch.  I've yet to find a resource where we can figure out which roms that were added at each of these intervals.

MAME2000 = 0.37b5
MAME2003 = 0.78
MAME2010 = 0.139
MAME2014 = 0.157
MAME2016 = 0.174
MAME = current rom set (0.195?)

Wow that sounds lile a task! Many are just name changes. It may be worth a visit to RetroPie for the older ones. There may be some info there. I know they work hard on the 2003 core

Im creating the xml list for 0.195 for use with my HyperSpin, but genre and rating labels will be empty (I didn't find yet a faster way to fill those parameters).
