976 downloads64bit MAME 172 Patched with no-nag, no white windows, hi-score and forced direct input. While hi-score support has been enabled in 172 via lua script, there is still some skepticism over at ArcadeControls whether it's fully functional or not, so hi-score was left in the compile. Install MAME 172 via DL from the MAME Dev webpage, then overswrite the .exe with this version. ***IF YOU HAVE AN OLDER VERSION OF MAME, THERE ARE NEW FOLDERS FOR 172 TO WORK, SO DO THE FULL INSTALL FIRST, THEN THE OVERWRITE***. And if you've never used a patched mame before, don't forget to generate a new .ini file (command line: mame64 -cc), so you have the control lines for the hi-score, etc. It will over-write your current mame.ini, so back that up first if you need to copy over your settings. Lastly, 172 now keeps (most of) it's hlsl settings in the .ini/presets folder, so changing them in the mame.ini (like we've done in every version since hlsl was introduced) USUALLY WON'T WORK - you need to update the raster.ini and vector.ini folders, as well as mame.ini. Since the global hlsl settings are still in mame.ini, I make sure my mame.ini hlsl settings mirror my raster.ini and vector.ini settings to be safe, but that's just me. And there is no more hlsl pre-scaling - that's not the patch, that's MAME 172. It's now a calculated value. Great update to a great emulator, btw. First update in a long time that provides CONSIDERABLE performance gains on the graphical level. I realize that every update requires incredible amounts of time and energy from the programmers, but not since Raiden was properly emulated have I been this amped about a new version. -A
