About This File

MAME 0.218 NO NAG

It’s time for MAME 0.218, the first MAME release of 2020! We’ve added a couple of very interesting alternate versions of systems this month. One is a location test version of NMK’s GunNail, with different stage order, wider player shot patterns, a larger player hitbox, and lots of other differences from the final release. The other is The Last Apostle Puppetshow, an incredibly rare export version of Home Data’s Reikai Doushi. Also significant is a newer version Valadon Automation’s Super Bagman. There’s been enough progress made on Konami’s medal games for a number of them to be considered working, including Buttobi Striker, Dam Dam Boy, Korokoro Pensuke, Shuriken Boy and Yu-Gi-Oh Monster Capsule. Don’t expect too much in terms of gameplay though — they’re essentially gambling games for children.

There are several major computer emulation advances in this release, in completely different areas. Possibly most exciting is the ability to install and run Windows NT on the MIPS Magnum R4000 “Jazz” workstation, with working networking. With the assistance of Ash Wolf, MAME now emulates the Psion Series 5mx PDA. Psion’s EPOC32 operating system is the direct ancestor of the Symbian operating system, that powered a generation of smartphones. IDE and SCSI hard disk support for Acorn 8-bit systems has been added, the latter being one of the components of the BBC Domesday Project system. In PC emulation, Windows 3.1 is now usable with S3 ViRGE accelerated 2D video drivers. F.Ulivi has contributed microcode-level emulation of the iSBC-202 floppy controller for the Intel Intellec MDS-II system, adding 8" floppy disk support.

Of course there are plenty of other improvements and additions, including re-dumps of all the incorrectly dumped GameKing cartridges, disassemblers for PACE, WE32100 and “RipFire” 88000, better Geneve 9640 emulation, and plenty of working software list addition

Happy Gaming

Is there a reason why the exe is twice the size of the original and twice the size of the no-nag one on hyperspin?

The File has been re-uploaded and now MAME64.exe is half the size.

New to using NoNag Versions.

being that there is a "Skip system info" in mames properties, is this to remove the warnings?

If so, It did not work for me.

Please let me know

Thanks

I already have MAME 64bit 0.210 set up but want to switch to your "no nag" version. I want to keep all my settings, etc. Can I just replace my mame64.exe with the one I downloaded from here? Is that the only file that is different from the official MAME download? Thanks! - Cory

Yes, if you use the .210 Version it will be a true No Nag version

I've been using the skip game info for some time in MAME I was always under the impression that what that command did and what No Nag does is different. The command skips the info about the board. I thought no nag skipped the warnings about if the games didn't work or if they were imperfect.

The No Nag turns off all warnings and all messages that appear prior to the launching of the game.   I am on my 2nd recompile attempt on version .0211.   It seems everyone wants it so I am going to see i can do.

Thanks for this it works great!  In case anyone else is concerned (because I'm paranoid and work in IT), for 0210 I ran a full scan on all the files and uploaded to virustotal for verification.  No issues found.

Hey thanks for this!

I used your 0.211 no nag and it works great. As I'm using this on a cab though, any chance of compiling one that also has the Loading messages removed?

Appreciate your efforts either way.

Those are a part of BigBox, turn off Loading Screens in the options.

Thanks, but I’m talking specifically about the loading screens in MAME itself - the boxes with white borders saying “loading” and/or “initialising”. 

I’ve used no nag Mame exes in the past that had these removed as well. Makes for a nice clean cab experience.
