nichidvd is just a BIOS, as the name implies.
It's supposed to be used as a proper DVD player in a future update. ;)

Also anything that has "handheld" in the description isn't an Arcade game for obvious reasons.

If anyone can give me a pointer where I can find what is arcade, bios, hardware, pinball, etc. that would be terrific!!

The command 'record' does not work, what's the alternative?

Edit record.bat and change the executable to mame64, and then run it from a dos box.

Well, meanwhile I transfered a record.bat from another mame to mame188, then I was able to record.
How do I change the executable to mame64 ? (I always run from a dos box)

Also the command "playback" does not work...

I hope these difficulties will be again for this version only, and not for all mames from now on.

From file manager, right click playback.bat and select EDIT. Change the word that says wolfmame or mamearcade or whatever else it may have been in the past to mame64. Save the file.

if exist diff\%1.bak move diff\%1.bak diff\%1.dif

This is the file in my current git folder, so it should be correct, unless I copied the wrong file (which I doubt) into the archive.

Be more specific...

If they are pinball, handheld or gambling games, they will not be added!

Ok, if you don't have 4 min to see that video I' ll be more specific.
Here's the video's games which does not exist in your list

Double Dragon (Tiger handheld)
INTELLEC 4/MOD 4
INTELLEC 4/MOD 40
Alphatronic PC
Black Touch '96
Game & Watch: Mickey Mouse
Ron II Mah-Jongg
Touch & Go (World)
World Rally 2: Twin Racing

But you still add gambling games, like
goldnpkc "Golden Poker Double Up (bootleg)
in this thread.

Btw, 6 months have passed from archiving a part of cards etc lucky games, when are you going to archive the rest?
And you include the pinballs? You' re going to archive games like "Pinball Action" ?

He means pinball games that cannot be played in MAME needing mechanical parts (which cannot be simulated for obvious reasons).

As for your random list:
Code: Select all
Handheld:
Double Dragon (Tiger handheld)
Game & Watch: Mickey Mouse 

Computers:
INTELLEC 4/MOD 4                 
INTELLEC 4/MOD 40               
Alphatronic PC                         

Already in MARP database, the video shows them because they are promoted working in 0.188:
Black Touch '96                         
Ron II Mah-Jongg                     
Touch & Go (World)                 
World Rally 2: Twin Racing       


Four minutes were better spent into searching in the actual MARP database :roll:

Why you write green letters in a box?

My list is not random, it comes from that video(which is about 'new working machines 0.188').

The list in first post of this thread has already some handheld games. So the question is, why not all of them.

I was not talking for the marp database, I only asked why they' re missing from the list.
Is this what usually happens, the lists of PL are uncompleted?

@Kale, thank you for your clear explanation. Much appreciated!

@PP. I've been doing MARP updates for 20 years!! My lists are complete!! That video showed nothing new. But keep checking since it only takes you 4 minutes!!

If anything, I have too many games where the ONLY HARM is that they count towards the leaderboard.

So I make a very educated guess as to what should NOT be in MARP. Some will inevitably sneak through.

I'll repeat my 2nd post in this thread...
If anyone can give me a pointer where I can find what is arcade, bios, hardware, pinball, etc. that would be terrific!!


So yea, I still have to remove a few games
HANDHELD
COMPUTER
HARDWARE
PINBALL
CASINO
GAMBLING
LUCK

what else did I miss, like maybe BIOS ???

But right now, I'm extremely busy and have better things to do... Lately, I like being outdoors.

PP., I hope you are enjoying your summer. Never been to Greece, but I hear it's a nice place to vacation and visit some beaches.

Ok, so the handheld games of your list is a mistake.

6 months was not enough time to remove gamblings from phil and gc?


I 'd like to visit US...

If anyone can give me a pointer where I can find what is arcade, bios, hardware, pinball, etc. that would be terrific!!


Someone could think that since you 've been doing MARP updates for 20 years, you have connections with mame creators, why don't you ask them?
