How to playback essekappa's latest rainbowe?

Post by tmorrow » Fri Apr 26, 2002 9:20 am

Recording -

Confirm log says -
Fri Apr 26 06:20:58 2002 : mahlemiut@TeamPoppy (br) confirmed the rainbowe score of 91607570 by essekappa (ddr)

I can't play this back past 6 million using standard issue mame 0.59 :( I sincerely hope this isn't a dos only playback, but I'm fearing the worst.

Thanks,
Tim

I'm affraid it is a dos only one: you may also need to change your opl options to match

ym2203opl = yes
ym3812opl = no
oplfm = no

to get it to playback in dos mame with sound.

I've looked the mame.cfg file and it states only ym3812opl = no, there's no other setting about the ones you wrote, Chad. I even downloaded the win32 mame but the game looks awful with it; maybe Tim you should try the way Joey did, dosmame -nosound.

It played back perfectly (sorta) to the advertised score using DOS MAME 0.59, sound on. Unfortunately, I'm starting to really hate DOS MAME now...

ddr: use -nohws with the win32 mame it will look much better (i'm guessing) the others that are missing have a default value, but i'm not saying it playsback with only those settings but it did for me.

Thanks a lot guys for the help. I downloaded official dmame0.59 and with a standard cfg could playback DDR's excellent recording completely - albeit without sound from my Win2000 machine.

This illustrates that mame and dmame need to be split from the dropdown list on the submit page. As we've all noted more and more of late the two exe's no longer behave the same insofar as playback of inp's is concerned.

Thanks again,
Tim

MAME probably ought to be put together with MAME32, seeing as they are more or less the same, just that MAME32 has a GUI.

MAME and MAME32 seem to be very similar since the 32 bit console core became standard - if an inp plays back on on one then it plays back on the other. Has anyone found any exceptions? I agree that dosmame should be separated and mame/mame32 combined.

ALL three must be separated, there are a few ipns where mame32 and mamew specification are required, this is one example

(at least i can't play it back with mamew53)
