Certain games wont open

Recommended Posts

Hey Guys

So weirdly most of my MAME games run fine except a handful. They go to the 'loading complete' stage then it switches back to HS.

They do run directly through MAME itself but very slowly and with weird echo sound. 

My RL log is below - the only obvious error I can see is highlighted?

It's called emulation.

You will not get 100% of games working.

Also try another version of MAME emulator for specific games that do not load.

I would suggest making sure they run fine in mame itself before even thinking about worrying about RL/HS.

Might help to know specifically which roms are giving you problems... although this kind of "some work, some don't" usually suggests that you are mix and matching romsets and mame versions.

It's:

Alien 3 

Jurrasic Park 

Lethal Enforcers 
Operation Wolf

Point Blanc

Teenage Mutant Ninja Turtles

Terminator 2 Judgement Day

Time Crisis

WWF Wrestlefest

A lot of those are light gun games (although i'm just using the sticks). Indeed I believe all the light gun games above use a different MAME version that has 'light gun' on the title or something but I havent changed any roms/mame versions so nothing has 'changed' persay there since they worked before

They dont run right in MAME so issue isnt RL related as you rightly said. I'm with you on mismatch of Rom sets/mame etc but nothing has changed on my build from those aspects, these were all working before? Only change persay was a Windows update

Which mame version is it? 

So after a windows update some games stopped working in mame directly?

0.217

Would seem coincidence yes. So most games run fine except a bunch listed above that open but run REALLY slow with choppy/doubled echo'd sound basically unplayable. 

I can download a newer version of MAME but then my roms wont work needing new AHK file etc would rather just find out why these arent working ideally im sure its a simple silly thing ive done maybe in an ini file or RL?

To update I have resolved this. My Video setting needed to be changed from Opengl to dddraw which looks slightly blockier than opengl and it refuses to add scanlines but is much smoother. d3d displays black screen but audio correct.
