Actually each multi starts as a treat to myself. Having grown up in western Europe I do prefer the world versions since that's the ones I remember, nostalgia plays a great part in the hobby for me (that's also why I don't understand the pursuit of candy cabs, they look nothing like the machines I used to play on in my childhood).Just wondering if there's a reason why particular regions of games are used, and if we're "locked in" to those or there's a way to use other regions.
I totally get this. for me I usually prefer the USA versions and seeing the "Winners Don't Use Drugs" screen in the attract loop makes me feel nostalgic.Having grown up in western Europe I do prefer the world versions since that's the ones I remember,
It's not that easy, for a tool covering all bases I would need to decrypt and/or patch all romsets. Which is a massive work.I think if we had simple tools for building our preferred ROM sets that would go a long way towards pleasing different people with different reasons for wanting their preferred region.
It would not be that hard to make the tool, true there is some finicky parts when collecting ROMs from split archives but it should be feasible. I am already doing a lot of this in the CPS2 and F3 generators.It's not that easy, for a tool covering all bases I would need to decrypt and/or patch all romsets. Which is a massive work.For the sake of simplicity I could have a fix game list where users would just select their version between regions. (At first I was thinking of the possibility to assign any game to any "slot" so people wanting to drop games they don't play could then have different versions of the same game.)I think if we had simple tools for building our preferred ROM sets that would go a long way towards pleasing different people with different reasons for wanting their preferred region.
It’s most likely been said. But I’m wondering the same thing and don’t feel like trudging through 27 pages.is there a way to download the updated roms (is it just ROM2 only?) that address the bugs found on Rtype2 3rd and 4th bosses?
Not normal to me.Could anyone let me know if massive slowdown is normal on this hardware? Some examples:
- Gallop first stage when you're breaking block obstacles or battling the very large flying tank enemies that shoot missiles
- Ninja Spirit 1st boss if you are using shirukens with a few clones and don't kill him right away when he starts firing lots of green projectiles
- R-Type 2 first boss if you don't kill him instantly and the "arms" come in from the left side of the screen, and in the second stage when lots of those enemies that zoom down diagonally when you kill them are onscreen
On my boardset it goes down to what has to be single digit FPS during these parts. Not having owned the boards before I'm not really sure what's correct and it's hard to tell in MAME what's "accurate" slowdown.
Down to single digit frame rate? That seems weird to me.
