  1. I tend to agree with Neil here, i would like to see in LB just a versioning number for the current mame metadata version would be really nice, but i think there are far more important additions than this tbh. Even though i do the no nags for mame each month, contrary to that my setup is still 0.205. Reading the patch notes each month tells you what new games/clones are added, and you can add them yourself quicker than the team here can update the data, its not hard to find the metadata, http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/ is one site that covers each rom with all the information you will ever need.

    NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leaderboards at all. mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.221 Its recommended to download the full 0.221 official pack and install it, then just overwrite the exe with the replacement, this covers any changes the mame devs may have made to the support files. After you have done this, make sure you copy the folders artwork, ctrlr, cheat, hlsl, ini, folders and the mame.ini file from your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install. For those of you on old installs make sure in the mame.ini file you have the following set. Skip_gameinfo 1

  4. The issue at hand is the 3rd party version of mame you are using, the author changed the default path for mame.ini, using the proper mame exe will solve any further issues you may have, using a 3rd party version can carry risks of stuff not working correctly. And as LB uses proper mame as its default, then the issues you have fall at the mameui devs fault. The team here cant fix every issue that xxx emulator may have.
  5. Yes, just make sure you add that path to the mame.ini file. here's mine as an example. rompath "roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms Bios;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Atari\Atari 5200;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Misc\ColecoVision;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo AES;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo CD;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Sega\Sega Saturn;..\..\Roms\Arcade\All Killer No Filler;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System III;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System II;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Atari Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Capcom Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Data East Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Irem Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Konami Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Midway Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco System 22;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Nintendo Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega ST-V;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\SNK Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Taito Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Williams Classics;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Nintendo Game & Watch;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Tiger Handheld Electronics"

  7. I have to ask why you are Zipping CHD files? CHD files are already compressed to an equivalent compression ratio of Maximum within 7z. So compressing can actually make the files larger than a standard CHD file. Also just in case people are unsure, Mame 0.221 does not exist as of yet. Just adding this image, the same chd compressed in 7zip at Maximum compression, is 1k larger than the chd itself, i know that size is not even worth bothering with, but its just a time waste imho for no gain other than adding an unpack step where there doesn't need to be one. I guess getting them from other sources means they are 7z already which i find a little strange, so yeah the script can help a few people get to grips with it via a script, or just highlight all your 7zipped chds and bulk extract to mame folder using the context menu.
  8. From what i remember its pretty normal for LB to hang around in task manager after closing as it writes the xml's on exit, once its done that task it closes fully, so if you have it on a slower drive it will be more noticable. I had that message the other day, after trying to run LB too quick again after closing it.
  9. A quick hack for this is to use a symbolic link from the source video, and just rename the symbolic link as needed, i use this for multiple files/folder in LB that use matching media and even my data folder and image cache folders use these as i have them active on another drive. HardLink Shell Extension. This is probably the best an easiest app to use to create links, install right click folder/file and select 'Pick Link Source' then right click in the location you want it and you will either be ablew to choose 'Drop As' or Drop as Symbolic Link. Hope that helps you for the time being.
  10. Just following this up, the no nag should never interfere with normal mame operations, as the changes are ui orientated. If anything changes in the future i will make sure its noted in the downloads.
  11. I personally don't see the DIP Switches as cheats though, they are an integral part of the actual arcade machine. I get why they may need to be looked at, but they are not cheats and should not be classed as. Having worked in the industry for a number of years, we changed dips on a regular basis, machines that were popular normally had their DIPS set high, and vice versa for poor performing machines, during quiet times games had dips lowered as it was more locals playing than tourists. While i get the need for a fair and level playing field for the leaderboards, the machines themselves have this option, it's not an external addition needed to invoke them. This is my personal view on it, but i respect any decision that may or may not be made about them.
  12. Thats just an edit to the UI.ini, can change that yourself in normal mame. the following replaced in the original mame ui.ini will result in the same effect. infos_text_size 0.75 font_rows 30 hide_main_panel 0 ui_border_color ff000000 ui_bg_color efefefef ui_clone_color ff7f7f7f ui_dipsw_color ff7f7f7f ui_gfxviewer_color ef000000 ui_mousedown_bg_color ef00a2e8 ui_mousedown_color fffff200 ui_mouseover_bg_color ef00a2e8 ui_mouseover_color fffff200 ui_selected_bg_color ef3f48cc ui_selected_color fffff200 ui_slider_color ef22b14c ui_subitem_color ef3f48cc ui_text_bg_color efefefef ui_text_color ff000000 ui_unavail_color ff7f7f7f
  13. A possible solution, Mameuifx is 4 years old now with development ceased, maybe try using arcade64, its the spiritual successor to uifx, i used fx back in the day and it was by far the best frontend mame had imho, but i felt right at home with arcade64. Also i guess you are using a rom set matched to the old version of uifx, if so that may also cause an issue, as roms get updated so the entry point that hi2txt uses may not be the same location in old rom sets, this is just an hypothesis on my part though,so take with a grain of salt.

  18. Pinball Clear Logos View File If you are like me, and like to avoid using silver ring and docklets in your build then the following pinball clear logos maybe what you need. Pinball FX2 - Complete set. Pinball FX3 - Complete set. The Pinball Arcade - 165 logos. Future Pinball - 457 logos. I want to add, i did NOT create a lot of these logos, they are from various sources spread around the net, some are on LB's database, but i have yet to find them as a complete set, They may well exist on PinballX's private ftp, but as i have no access there i spent time going through each one to complete them for my own build. I made any logos that i could not find or ones that were exceptionally bad. Thanks goes to all persons involved in making any media for our hobby.
