ok I will have to look into that for sure thanks :) I just want to be able to toss it in there and reload it if I have too.  No fuss type deal. It's not connected to the net anyway. At least not until they get mame hub worked out I guess. You might want to ask if they will sticky a link to that setup (the disc image) if you are willing to share it. Might help out some people.

Not sure how the "number one rule to get computer help" slipped my mind  :o *sigh* 3 hours sleep will do that i guess.

I am running Linux 64-bit Mint 17.
Laptop for now with 2 gigs ram and 2.0 dual core

It may be kega. There is another front-end http://www.mameau.com/mahcade/ but it has not been updated for a year. That and it doesn't work as well as I'd like it. (Yeah Yeah I'm picky but aren't we all?  :P ) I think I had the same problem when I was using this front-end as well so I went with a different sega Emulator (Gens I think) I'm thinking it's the emulator like I said but could I gut some of yo guys to test that for me..or at least help me fix it Thanks. :) I can use Gens/g7 emulator and I do not have that problem as Kega but I can't load Gens on my "cab" for some reason

General / Attract-Mode and Kega Fusion
« on: February 04, 2015, 09:32:57 PM »
When I try to load Kega Fusion from attract mode kega will not load sound. I thought maybe it was because it loaded from the command line. (yeah yeah..but i test everything) No. No problem there. (Or from the GUI) Just when I load it from attract-mode. So I guess it is something do so with the sound.  i.e. Kega thinks the sound is being used so it will not let me enable sound at all in kega?   ??? Anybody got any ideas?

What version of mame are you using?


I have 0.158 on one but my "cab" is version 0.152 patched no nag/hi score.

The "off-line" install is just taking a pre compiled version of mame and attract mode and copying the files to the right folders. I need to write a bash script.

I was using UCK (ubuntu customisation kit) I don't remember what the exact problem I was having. I'll try again maybe tomorrow or the next day and see what it is. I was wanting to use lubuntu and strip the  LXDE desktop out and leave just openbox. I figured out how to set it up and hide everything so you never see it.

Hi raygun, can you please add deb & rpm packages to the dowload section.

As for making a deb for attract mode I had forgotten about that I'll look in to it tomorrow too if you don't mind. Unless some one knows how to do it already  ;)

I misread that. Well actually there was a project going on about that. It is called "Mame Tweaks" It is old though and no longer worked on. It required a patch of mame. I think what it did was count the frames and then it started you on that frame. (i.e. lets say galaga boot screen runs from frame 0 to 256) Then mame started on that frame (256) not frame zero. You never saw the boot screen. (You know mame writes a nvram for sfiii ect so that you don't have to write it on every start. Can we do that for the DECO Cassette games too?   ::) ) The "code is for mame version 0.94 I think? I'll look for it. The link was hard to find. So what I'm saying is: can any of you coders out there update it to a newer mame version? Here is some info that I could find. Note: The links to the file in these threads are DEAD! http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/15963-13-anyone-compiled-version-mametweaks and http://www.tomshardware.com/forum/15808-13-mame-source-code-tweak-utility-available  Also I think Budda Bing was involved. (that was some time ago) I *might* have a copy..I don't know. If you want, if i can find it, i'll post it if that's ok.

I am actually attempting a "off-line install" of attract-mode. I'm gathering packages at the moment. I understand there is a program that will allow you to make deb packages. I'll look into it. I tried to make a "attract-mode live CD" but i failed miserably.  :( Some of you are wondering why all this trouble? Simple if my cab goes down then I can just reinstall and not have to worry about lugging wherever to "plug in" or finding dependencies or worse recompiling :( . This way at least i know I will have one computer that always will work even if it needs reinstalling. Call me crazy.

Actually with a no nag patched version of mame the screens don't pop up or get in the way. I used to have a screen saver for windows that did just what you are asking. You could even put a "coin" in while in the screen saver and it would drop the screen saver and leave the game running. I was in Windows XP.  Here is the link.. http://tomspeirs.com/mamescreensaver/ The software is "outdated". And I think it needs an internet connection for missing files..like .NET framework or something...you have been warned. I'm not on windows so I can't test it.

General / Re: Is there a way to hide duplicates?
« on: January 28, 2015, 07:46:57 AM »
There might be an easier way. This is how I do it though. The list is plain text (the smart person that did that needs a keg of his favourite!)  ;D I just open my list in any text editor for whatever operating system you are using and then just delete the line - the full line - for the game. After starting attract mode again it should not show at all. Be warned though if you ever make a new list the duplicates will show again. Hope that helps.
