Pac-Man not showing up under MAME

Recommended Posts

.. The only thing I've found is PuckMan

As a side note, asteroids also isn't showing up. But I'm mainly interested in Pac-Man. Any help?

Pac-Man is a clone of Puck-Man. If you have clones disabled then you won't be able to see it.

It depends on your database. If you have a database without clones you would have to manually add it to the database. If your database has clones in it and you're using the parents only filter in HyperHQ for the MAME wheel, you can just remove the info from the cloneof tag of the pacman entry.

you should get a MAME XML WITH NO Clones , I use Don's tools to make one then use my custom XMLs to add all the games I removed

 

my custom XMLs

2 player versions as parents

I remove 4 player games -->  Made an XML to add  2 player versions as parents

 

clone games as parents

removed all clones --> Made an XML to add all the good clone games  ( such as pac-man, pac-man/Ms pac-man  speed hacks)

 

Clones with themes

removed all clones -->Add clone games with themes, their are a few clone games that have themes, such as Black Dragon aka Black Tiger

 

Cocktail versions as parents

I have a cocktail arcade,  so I set the cocktail supported clone games as parents.

 

Individual Games

Their are non standard Mame games I add to my wheel

Donkey Kong Pauline -- added to MAMEUIFX

Fix it felix --> PC game

Ice Cold Beer --> Visual Pinball (plays great on a cocktail arcade)

Zekes Peak --> Visual Pinball (plays great on a cocktail arcade)

 

 

filtering XMLs.zip

 

 

Simply open Merge HyperLists.exe in the Don's tools folder, and merge my XMLs with your MAME XML with NO CLONES.  And you will have a filtered XML with all your favorite clones.

 

 

 

if you do this their is no need to use any filters in HyperHQ

So I downloaded your pack, I merged "clone games as parents.xml" with my MAME.xml that was in my HyperSpin > Databases >MAME folder, then I dropped in the new .xml, but it's still not showing the cloned games. What am I doing wrong?

Open your MAME XML and check to see if  their was any effects.

 

If you have a default MAME XML with all the clone games,  and you merge  my "clone games as parents.xml"

 

Don's tools will ignore duplicate games.  this is why I suggested you make or use a MAME XML with no clones.

A database tool, probably in the download section here.

Dons tools is a HyperSpin XML management utility,  their are 6 programs in the pack.

the most important one is Rename ROMs.exe,  witch lets you rename your roms using the Official Hyperspin XMLs.

 

you can use

Filter Hyperlist.exe to make your own MAME XML without clones 

Split Hyperlist.exe  to make your own Manufacture/Genre specifict XMLs
