MAME4ALL 037b5 Complete Romset 2270
on a related note, i try and develop my own frontends for the games i play, and when i do that, i try to make them work on my devices. so i would appreciate if you took the time to make the frontends work for your device (and if there are requests, send in a pr). the frontend for prey is very basic, it only has one checkbox to choose the game, but if you guys like it, its open source and you can modify it to your liking. the frontend for metal slug x is actually a preset in mame4all, and its probably the best preset for that game.
if you feel like the mame4all application is slow, try to adjust the settings in the xconfig file to make mame run faster. it could be that you have lots of games loaded, and one of these games is slowing the program down.
i’m not a regular user of mame. everything is fine there, it’s the host i have a problem with. it’s been a while since i’ve had problems with it, but this time i just can’t find any options, not even from the main screen.
the 2270 romset also has the xmame 2.0 folder. however, you will only be able to use this folder for xmame 1.3 users. in order to get xmame 1.3 working with this romset, you will need to place your xmame_2.0 folder in the /media/rg350/roms/xmame84 folder, as above.
the 2270 romset also has a.zip folder with multiple.zip files in it, but if you look on line 45 you can see that there is a script for qemu that will let you know what romset you are currently on. while there may be a way to switch rom sets, i have not experimented with this, but for me, its nice to know what romset i am on without having to go through the menus to see what i am on. (this is a common complaint with most hacked emulators.)
also, you can use bluestacks (free) or play store (free) to install your apps. these frontend apps have their own set of issues, but theyll do what you need them to. mame4all can detect them, so you can use them to launch games in a similar manner.
i have tried to use my ng-x to emulate tons of games, but ive decided that i just prefer using the frontends. maybe i do need to spend more time on these roms to make them easier to use. and while i used to love just toying with the settings, it is getting pretty tiring now, as youll notice in this review. honestly, it is really nice to see that the games already have some dedicated settings (especially toggles for slow motion) right out of the box, and it would be nice to be able to set those up directly from the device. but those are minor gripes, and for the most part its actually a very nice box.
lastly, the mame4all player can stream on your home network from a freenas/ovh server, which means you can play a random game at your leisure. just make sure that the server has plenty of ram and disk space; between 2gb and 10gb of ram and a 1tb hard disk. to play a game using a dns address, head to here to learn more. if you happen to encounter any issues, feel free to drop me a line, and i will try to help.
if your new to mame4all, i think the easiest way is to play a romset and see if you like it. the internet is full of nearly every game available for emulators, so you should always have something to play. the good thing is that you dont need much space to store all of the files so you can experiment until you find what you like. create links and enjoy!
