 DU: Gals Don't Panic, Magic Johnson Somehow Beat AIDS

Hammy sent us a dump of an alt Gals Panic S Euro version that uses a different bios. On a side note the other Gals Panic S Euro dump in MAME uses the file name "galpanis" and the LGBT community is reportedly furious about it. Kevin Eshbach dumped the PAL8L14 from Magic Johnson's Fast Break.

 MAME 0.176 On Raspberry Pi Benchmarks

ChoccyHobNob has released some RasPi benchmarks today with current MAME, showing the performance increases across the generations of Raspberry Pi's. Be sure to check it out!

Says ChoccyHobNob:

There are a lot of accusations about MAME being slow, about how it is a documentation project, not an exercise in performance tuning. Most people seem to think that a 20 year old version of MAME is the best you can hope for out of a Raspberry Pi. I'm here to say that's not the case. If you set your expectations at a reasonable level, you tweak your settings in a sensible way, and you overclock wherever you can, you will probably be pleasantly surprised.


MAME benchmarks are run without using the display or sound devices, this keeps the benchmarks purely about MAME's performance, and tries to take any bottlenecks with the host system out of the loop. In the case of the Raspberry Pi, the GPU gives the performance a pretty good beating, meaning that games need to run quite a bit faster than 100% to be playable.

 Clrmamepro 4.030 Released


Clrmamepro 4.030 released. An important update for next MAME version which will have some multiple crc32 hash collisions within the same set...pretty rare thing but cmpro takes care. Also huge thanks to Shoegazr who did endless testing on Linux helping me to find a weird directory walk issue on ext4 formatted drives.

Change Log

•added: supporting crc32 collisions within sets (equal crc32, different sha1/md5)
•added: missing/total chds column for profiler and htmlReport
•fixed: having set folders and archives can create wrong missing roms messages (mainly on Linux/ext4)
•fixed: unneeded chds are not showing up if nothing of the set exists
•fixed: MAME -listxml output was not taking changed temporary folder into account
•misc: slight rebuilder speed update for rebuilding separated bios files
•misc: updated unrar dll to 5.40.4
•misc: compiled with VS Studio 2015 Update 3
