Had a moment of laughter while deleting all the weird titles... these above are the new games that do not belong to Aristocrat folder.
Now, if someone can also enlighten me about this Aristocrat, that would be marvellous. I smell casino slots anyway.

Yes, I believe they are all slot machines, the sets are from another emulator that specialises in this hardware (Aristocrat MK5/6).

yeah, the Aristocrat stuff is all video slot machines, Aristocrat is / was the major manufacturer of such machines in Australia / New Zealand.

it was thought that only a handful of their games were dumped, but as it turns out actually an awful lot were, they'd just been kept in a private stash until about a year or two ago, at which point they were released / leaked out, but nobody bothered to inform us..

so, a bit late to the party (with a good chance some stuff was lost, because a lot of the links that were posted 2 years ago are now dead) we have the majority listed, in one big batch.

to get the MK5 stuff working we need better Acorn Archimedes emulation.
the MK6 stuff is an SH4 based platform with a PowerVR video chip (so similar to Dreamcast / Naomi, although probably a bit weaker) They need the SH4 MMU emulation improving at least.

in terms of what's actually interesting to play in there?

the new 'androidp' set (which replaces the old androidp set, which is now androidpo) offers significantly different gameplay, but considering it's meant to be a newer version it seems a far weaker / less logical game.

the operation wolf prototype actually plays *properly* unlike the other emulated versions which all have buggy protection emulation and missing events...

touch and go is a volleyball game, I'd actually like to see some replays of that where the special moves get used because I know the vertical scrolling is a bit broken, but haven't a clue how to trigger the special moves to test it.. sound doesn't work 100% but it's playable.

the atomic robokid clone might be interesting because all the versions we had before were marked as 'TYPE-II' on the title screen, this one isn't, and the rom data is much more different to the others, no idea what that means for the actual gameplay tho.

lasthope is an odd one, don't know if you're going to allow competition on it here or not, it was on an arcade (mvs) cartridge for use on arcade hardware, but it's 100% the same as the aes release of the game, it has no coin options or anything, plays identical to the home version.

also note, the 'tourvision' games are now using a software list instead of individual sets (I did actually mean to leave behaviour the same in 0.173 but forgot to check in an updated mame.lst, the change in behaviour could well be permanent tho)

that means MARP will have to decide how to handle them as they all use the base 'tourvis' system with an additional parameter for the game (all previous games are still present, with a few extra ones added)
for example the commandline launch syntax is now
"mame64 tourvis coryoon"

I guess the easiest way is you could treat it like tourvis is a split game?

or just ignore it completely, because they're just home games with a timer unit connected, and we don't even emulate the timer at the moment ;-)

Well, if the games are (in essence) the same as their home console counterparts, is there really a point having them on MARP at all? Longplays and TG cover home consoles just fine, so it would be unnecessary for MARP to cover a game that is just a home console game with a timer attached to it. (This assumes, of course, I haven't misunderstood what Haze is getting at. :P )

basically Tourvision was like an unofficial version of the Megatech / Playchoice 10 system, but for the PC-Engine

The Megatech / Playchoice-10 game roms (for the actual game part) are *100% identical* to the Megadrive / NES respectively, but in addition there's an extra CPU / monitor that displays a menu with instructions tacked on.

The Tourvision is even less interesting than the MT / PC-10 tho, because the games didn't even have menu roms, just a very basic bios controlling a timer that would reset the system / lock you out if you stopped inserting coins. In the case of the Tourvision we're not even emulating the timer circuit yet.

There are a number of systems in MAME like this. Typically MARP has allowed competition on them. The Tourvision is just the first one it looks like we'll be changing to be treated more like the console part of MAME from a 'how the games are launched' perspective.

In all cases (PC-10, Megatech, Tourvision) you really are just playing console games tho, no different to if you put a coin operated timer circuit on the plug of your console to stop your kids from playing them for too long.

Haze, thanks for mentioning the TourVision games. I did notice that they had been "deleted", but I never removed them from the MARP database. I think I will leave them in there as separate games for now rather than to create splits.
