Best MAME for DC

Post by mkjones » Fri Jan 03, 2003 7:46 am

so whats the BEST MAME Emu for the DC?? Unofficial MAME, MameDC or MamedDC??

Also, what are the games like? i see there is a massive range out there from 2d platformers to 3d racers, sounds like a really amazing idea...

if it works on the DC :-)

Any tips and stuff would be nice....

Well, i did search but no relevent results came back, i looked for "Best MAME Emu" and "MAMEUnlimited Any Good" etc... just wonderd if anyone had some good ideas...

As far as i can see:

Best SNES : DreamSNES
Best GENESIS : DCDen
Best PSX : Bleem! (dead) so DC-PSX
Best MAME : ???
Best MASTER SYSTEM : SMEG
Best GB : Boob!Boy??
Best NGP : NeoPoccottDC

any others??

ive got a GB and a NEO Pocket so i would like to play those ones, not tried em yet, also the Genesis (mega drive) would be fun, my old one is back at my parents house gathering dust,,,, i wonder if my dad still playes PGA golf?? :-P

THERES my versions of mame

THEN theres MAMED MAIM etc

neomame im writting bits of mame but it may turn out to be crap

get nesterDC its perfect you can play the nes on the dc with fullspeed sound and VMU support

dcgen is to slow to play games on

the front page has all the info

i also did a edit of a wonderswan emu only my version is fullscreen and runs at 100% on most games so get it if you like that emu
machine what ever

the GBC GB emulator is ace to and you be happy with it or nesterDC

some of they others are WIP and do not have sound or proper speed

there also quake i ported that to dc runs nice and you can use mods any think else ! lol

I think DCGnuBoy is better than Boob!boy right now. It runs just as good as NesterDC.

then there are the 2 releases i contributed to- Gradius 3 MAMED and Contra MAMED.. I quit working on releasing new MAMED's after I got a new pc and didnt have time to download KOS and start doing everything again. So now all i can do is update the sites. By the way, Reaper2k- do you have a BBA, i need you test something VERY important for me. Thanks.

all you did was make crummy mak files that didn't work right ... blah.
If you think typing 'make' is hard, forget coding.
If you can't figure out the commands to DC-Tool, forget coding.
If you think coding is as easy as typing printf("Hello World\n"); , shoot yourself.
