  • MAMu released 66 new icons to accompany MAME 0.37 Beta 5! His site is a trip too - very cool! =P - prophet

  • Killer Instinct fans and PCB owners might want to look here. Might be useful when KIAME is released, or if you need to fix your board. (Thanks EmuHQ) - prophet

  • Here's a local mirror for the MAME32 0.37 Beta 5 BINARY! :) It should be ready in about 10 minutes... Man, I need to get a better connection - I rarely get more than 3kps. :( - prophet

  • Rodimus Prime recently posted a 0.37 Beta 5 build of AMAME! PMAME coming tomorrow. (Thanks Michael A.Horton) - prophet

  • Genesis Power went fishing for James Pond 2 (U)! - prophet

  • Gridle updated MAME WIP already! Quite a big update too. :) MAMEdev must eat Energizer batteries cause they keep going & going... - prophet

  • Just a note - if you have a P2/P3 be sure to use the Pentium Pro optimized build of MAME 0.37 Beta 5. Comparing the normal build with the PPRO build, I discovered UMK3 was getting nearly 15fps more! Big difference to say the least. - prophet

  • Oh glorious day :) I have received the first batch of Retrogames T-Shirts and they look awesome! I've already handed out a few to my family and friends and they liked 'em a lot. Visitors 6,000,000 to 6,000,010 will be receiving their shirts in August. We switched printers 3 times, but it was worth the wait and trouble. The shirts are Fruit of the Loom, model Lofteez. Real good quality. Hey Elvis, make some pics for me and I'll post 'em since Mustek is not willing to release Windows 2000 drivers for their 'older' model scanners. I bought my scanner last year. Thanks for nothing, Mustek, I'd like a refund. - atila

  • RCP has posted a little something on the TRWIN site about KIAME, the Killer Instinct emulator. He confirms that he's working on it and it is infact real, he also mentions the following: "Another funny thing was that most ppl thought it was fake! It seems that ppl had a hard time believing that it could get done in week... i was surprised as well. - atila

  • The VEGAS site has been updated with some groovy WIP info, various games (Sonic & Knuckles included!!) now work perfectly!!! Thanks to SlasherX for the news. - atila

  • Kazuya posted an interview regarding a rather controversial erm... project. I do agree with their "live & let live" policy. You can also check out the vast library of well written NeoGeo game reviews there. - prophet

  • The MEKA site has had a nice redesign. MEKA is a multi-machine emulator for DOS but it works in WIN9x. Thanks to EmuHQ for the news. - atila

    * Made the screen resolution fully configurable.
    * Added non-integer scaling of screen shots as an option.
    * Fixed a bug in rotated configurations.

    Game Launcher is a universal DOS frontend for emulator. - atila

  • Luca has released his 14th simulator: Towering Rescue (Gakken, LCD Card Game series). The manual is not included this time because he wasn't able to find any instruction booklet scans. Please download the simulator from MADrigal's Sims, hosted here at Retrogames.com - atila

  •    Saturday, July 29th 2000 - Last updated @ 17:45 EST

  • Check out EmuHQ, because Bwb has also received a KIAME beta and put a movie online! It's a bit choppy because he didn't have time to mess with compression, but he tells me he gets 40-55 fps on his K7-650 & Voodoo3. This thing is REAL baby! Go go go rcp! - prophet

  • Bradley over at KIAEP has now received a beta of KIAME, and has posted pics and other info about this impressive new emulator! Killer Instinct fans - looks like your day is coming soon. :) - prophet

  • Raine, Antiriad's super fast arcade emulator is being ported to Windows - enter Raine32! Go go go Atani! (Thanks Arcade Heaven) - prophet

  • M.A.S.H. sent in his unofficial Mameinfo.dat file, updated for the latest Mame v37b5. - dutch

  • Genesis Power asks you the following question: "What is faster than a speeding Sonic, more powerful than Ken the Street Fighter and able to leap tall fighting mecha in a single bound?". The answer can be obtained from the Genesis Power site ofcourse :) - atila

  • I check the site and see all hell broke loose overnight. I checked the KIAME site and saw they blamed me for Chris' post regarding their emu, they did rectify it later though. Remember kids, opinions belong on the messageboard, not on the main page :) - atila

  • Here's a nice site (Czech & English versions online) for Speccy fans, 128 Museum! The theme is rare games. :) - prophet

  • A new day, the sun rises and Genesis Power releases another game - this time it's World Heroes (U)! - prophet

  • Back to the Roots had a nice fat update recently, adding lotsa goodies for Amiga (and PC demo) fans! - prophet

  • Concerning KIAME - I want to make it very clear that Chris took it upon himself to post *his* opinion on our news page. On behalf of the other staff here, I want to point out that Chris spoke for himself alone on this matter. No project should be labeled "fake" before proper investigation proves things one way or the other. Nuff said. - prophet

  • Three new drivers for JAE, the Java Aracade Emulator, have been released:

    • Pengo © Sega 1982
    • Amidar © Stern/Konami 1982
    • Ms. Pacman © Midway 1980/1981
    Play these two classics online at http://web.utanet.at/nkehrer
    Also some bug fixes for Pacman were made. - chris

  • Well, chris went ahead and called it fake, but I always like to give people the benefit of the doubt ^^ The anonymous coder of the KIAME Killer Instinct emulator has revealed himself to be none other than rcp of TRWIN fame! There are some similarities between N64 and KI hardware, which helps explain things. I think this adds some legitimacy to the project, in my opinion. Keep an open mind, and check out this thread on the EmuHq messageboard. - david

  •    Friday, July 28th 2000 - Last updated @ 18:08 EST

  • Napster WILL NOT be shut down tonight, it will stay online for the time being!! Thanks to several people for the news. - atila

  • Rolf Klausen has released a new console based front-end for xmame called IQF (It's Quite Fancy!). - chris

  • irobot is a new search engine especially designed for emulation related searches created by our friends at mame.dk. - chris

  • Project AY, the site which archives ZX Spectrum music in AY format, has just been updated. There are now over 350 games soundtracks available for download as well as a vast selection of demo themes. The DOS player [AYPLAY], the DOS AY compiler [AYMAKE], and the database have also been updated. Thanks to bcass for the news. - chris

  • Sorry Atila, and sorry Killer Instinct fans. KIMAME is so obviously fake I'm surprised it got posted here. The screenshots are so blurry that it is painfully obvious they did not come from an emulator. Anyway, you are not fooling this emu news poster... *UPDATE* Why not check this thread on our msgboard for more info ? (original post by Chris, edited by Atila) - atila

  • Looks like Arcade ROM Heaven, Arcade@home, and Mame.dk are all 100%. :) - dutch

  • Heh, that was fast LogiqX. :) Mamediff 1.03 now takes care of that little complimented CRC problem. Cool! - dutch

  • Sorry, but this is not a MAME related news :) Pasofami 99 v1.3w6b was released with small bug fixed for rom-dumping feature. Author also mentioned that a disk-system dumping tool will publicize soon :) Thanks to Navarone of Emulation number 9 for tips :) - aries

  • I hear that there is a 100% complete Mame v37b5 ROMset flood on the Usenet group alt.binaries.emulators.misc. Agent is a good client for reading news, but for downloading binaries, I recommend Newsbin Pro. If you need better access to Usenet, I recommend either Airnews or Usenetserver. Do not download any of these if you are not legally entitled to them. This has been a public service announcement. =) - dutch

  • The source for Xmame v0.37b5.1 has been released, but does not yet integrate the xmess source. Xmame is an X11/Unix port of MAME - grab the source here. - david

  • New MAME got you down because of hardware inadequacy? Check out today's helping of OC for some "guidance": OverClocked #123: MAME-economics, and while you're at it, stop by OC ReMix and pick up my latest mix of Phantasy Star 4 ^^ - david

  • Gridle has added CPU-optimised binaries to the MAME site, he's added an i686 version (Pentium Pro/PII/PIII/Celeron) and a K6 version (K6-2, K6-3, K7) of MAME 0.37b5. These compiles will give you a few fps more than the 'standard' binary. - atila

  • The KIAME Site (mentioned below) has been updated AGAIN, now with the following news:

    speed is much better, about 30-45fps on my 350. major bugs are gone and you can play multiple games without any problems. however, there is still a bug or two running about.

    You can check out the new, luscious pics by clicking here. Thanks to MrFaust for the news. - atila

  • I just read on Emu-NL that the first alpha version of RomNET is out. RomNET is like Napster, but the difference is that it's for ROMS only. - atila

  • Do you have a PSION Series 5 computer ? Then you're probably short on emus for it. Fear not, as you can download FRODO, a C64 emulator that runs standard T64 and D64 images. It doesn't have sound though, thanks to TOby for the link. - atila

  • MacMAME 0.37b5 has been released, here's what's new:

    - In sync with the DOS 0.37 beta 5 build. [Brad Oliver]
    - Fixed Glide plugin so that it renders the entire screen. [Brad Oliver]
    - Added option to load a language file, and in the process rearranged the front-end slightly. Loading of non-default cheat files (i.e. those that are not named 'cheat.dat') will be added in a future release; it is dimmed out for now. [Brad Oliver]
    - Fixed issue whereby replay files would not display the filename in the front-end. [Brad Oliver]

    You can also download the source by clicking here, please check the MacMAME site for more info. - atila

  • I've taken a look at the ROM Report for Mame version 37 beta 5 using LogiqX's excellent Mamediff. The first thing that jumped out at me were the new CRCs for several Neo Geo MGDII dumps. These are simply complimented CRCs. (It's how the Mame team flags "No good dump known, but you should use this known dump for use with this version of Mame" ROMs. :) CLRMame Pro will scan the sets correctly; you don't have to download anything new. Perhaps this is something LogiqX might include in the next release of Mamediff (hint hint ;).

    Then of course there are all those new sets, like the big Wolf Unit games. And I'm sure there's some clones in there that haven't turned up yet. :)

    I have not even begun a hunt yet, at this point I've no idea who has what. The sites to watch are SYS2064 for Till's convenient fixfile (that's already up btw :), Mame.dk, Arcade ROM Heaven, Arcade@home, Geoshock, Emulition, Emuviews, and the Usenet group alt.binaries.emulators.misc (the fastest and most convenient way to get files IMHO, providing you have a fast server and someone ups what you are looking for).

    Happy hunting! I'll post more information as I find it out. :) [Disclaimer: we here at retrogames do not condone copyright violation; you should not be downloading anything for which you are not legally entitled.] - dutch

  • Now that MK maniacs have their games, it's only fitting that Killer Instinct fans get a little something to get excited about. ;) So check out KIAME and feast upon the first pics of that game being emulated on a PC! Yeah, it's very, very early but AMAZING nevertheless. (Thanks Emuviews) - prophet

  •    Thursday, July 27th 2000 - Last updated @ 21:28 EST

  • Genesis Power #201: Universal Soldier (U). Grab this, um, shall we kindly say "interesting" game here. - david

  • FPSE v0.08b1 has been released. New in this win32 Playstation emu are increased speed, a new version of the SDK, cleaner source layout for porting, and a "b1" after the "v0.08" (ooooooh!). Grab it at the homepage. Thanks to EC for the news. Damn . . . I wanted to get that MAME post ^^ (hey, in case you missed it, the new MAME is out! So there!) - david

Mame version .37 beta 5 source is out, including support for Mortal Kombat 2, Mortal Kombat 3, Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3, NBA Maximum Hangtime, 2 on 2 Open Ice Challenge, Rampage: World Tour, and WWF Wrestlemania. I hear the ROM download for this release is around 250 megs, I will try to update with ROM reports (like I usually do) as time permits. (Here is where Usenet comes in handy :). Yep, this is another milestone for the awesome pool of talent that is the Mame team. :))))) (Binary will be online shortly...) - dutch

  • /me faints. - dutch

  • I know several people will probably faint when they see the new MAME WIP update, so make sure you have someone to keep you from falling down and hitting the floor ... hard. - atila

  • One of the few arcade emulators that's still being updated and happens to be relatively new is LASER. It used to be b&w but color has been added in the new release, Laser 0.7. Thanks to EmuViews for the news. - atila

  • GENS 0.78b released!! Gens now supports bankswitching, so SSFII: The New Challengers is playable. You can also log the sound to a .wav file now, among other things. Check the GENS site for the full list of fixed/new things, thanks to JoseQ for the news. - atila

  • The Register reports that, a San Francisco judge has given Napster until midnight on Friday US Pacific Time to stop aiding the exchange of copyright music, or close down. This means that you will NOT be able to get music off of NAPSTER from Friday on. Maybe it's time to use Gnutella or something similar ? *UPDATE* Here's another article about this ruling, thanks to Jason for the link. - atila

  • Guru-Choc has posted some screenshots of some of the games listed below at Arcade ROM Heaven. - chris

  • A Wolf-unit driver has been added to MAME with all games working with full sound. The Wolf-unit games include: Mortal Kombat 3 (3 versions), Ultimate Mortal Kombat 3 (2 versions), NBA Maximum Hangtime, 2 on 2 Open Ice Challenge, Rampage: World Tour (2 versions), and WWF Wrestlemania. Thanks to Ernesto Corvi and Aaron Giles for the news. - chris

  • Stairway to Hell tells me "85 Acorn Electron games, including *stacks* of classics, have been dumped and uploaded..., bringing the total number of games online to 235!" - prophet

  • Raine WIP was updated! News this time pertains to fixed backgrounds in Puzzle Bobble 4. Open source was definitely the way to go! :) - prophet

  • I have this sticker on my monitor that says: my other computer runs at 3.4Mhz. Good news for all those people that have a similar computer, or use an emulator for this particular computer: http://www.brandnewco.org/games! Yes, you read that correctly, people are making new games for the Speccy :) Both GB conversions and original games! Thanks to DrSteveW for the link. - atila

Part of the source code for the MERIDIAN NSF/RGM player was released, along with several new skins. Oh yeah, Zeroes Unlimited did a bitchin' funny piece on NARC - a must read!! - david

  • Redump64 is back! No kidz, it ain't no new fangled N64 site, it's all about the good ol' Commodore64 days when 8 bits was enough! We *walked* to school back then and we played games, real games, not yer fancy 64bit 3D whizbang junk. Dagnabbit! - prophet

  • Genesis Power released the (currently unplayable) Japanese dump of Super Street Fighter 2! - prophet

  • Amiga Legal Emulation was updated again! The final 40 Assassin disks with over 100 more games were uploaded. Makes me tired just writing about all that uploading... - prophet

No need for an external program, try it, you might like it. Oh, it's also an editor's pick at ZDNET. And it's priced at $10 for Retrogames visitors, instead of the usual $29. (and no, we don't get a dime :) - atila

  • With Gridle away, might as well keep posting MAME WIP news here... So, here are some interesting quotes from Mish on the Official MAME board:

    On Raiden: "Raiden cpu speed is currently wrong (19MHz instead of 20MHz), it'll be fixed soon. The slowdowns in the game really come from the fact the V30 cycle counts are wrong, this will also be fixed soon." He also says Raiden Fighters looks encrypted. :(

    On Taito F3: "Taito F3 support will be added to Mame once the 68020 supports it properly. With the current 68020 core all the F3 games crash, it's probably just a small bug in the core but I don't see any point adding them until they can actually run :P" He also notes the driver will ultimately be much slower than Raine, though also more accurate.

    GuruChoc noted that the final graphics bugs in CPS1 have been ironed out by Nicola, so Capcom fans should be happy about that.

  • Well, it's hard to compare to the SEGA glory Kinox bestowed upon us today, but OverClocked has finally gotten back on track with the release of two ReMixes - Donkey Kong and Megaman - and a new episode of Mystery Videogame Theater 3000 - FAT BOBBY. Your life may just depend on checking them out ^^. - david

  • Kinox are celebrating the big-ole one year mark with a birthday bash that includes CSpray v1.00, a new Sega ROMs site with over 500 games, an interview with Atani of SegaEmu fame, and a preview of "Segabase", a new project by The Scribe that's basically a massive collection of "SEGA Stuff" - grab it off the Kinox homepage. One small note - the interview incorrectly lists Atani as the author of Genital, whereas he is the author of Genital32, the windows port. Bart Trzynadlowski wrote Genital itself. That's one hell of a birthday, guys! - david

  • Pasofami, a Japanese NES emulator from N.Andou, was updated to v1.3w5! Here is what's new for this version:

  • Wouldn't it be great to play the original NeoGeo CD version of Samurai Shodown RPG in English? Sadly SNK never bothered with a translation - if only a talented hacker/translation team like DeJap would do it... What's this?! =) If you're proficient in Japanese->English script translations and would like to help, go visit and drop them an email! To the curious - what's there is just for fun for now. Victoly! :) (Thanks Dark Force) - prophet

  • That so-called "US-Only" version of Bust-A-Move was NOT dumped by Apollo69, and is believed to be nothing but a hacked bootleg dump. So it's really nothing new. Read this message from Apollo69 for the details. - prophet

  •    Friday, July 7th 2000 - Last updated @ 19:52 EST

  • I would normally never report about "leaked" items in the news, but in this case I will make an exception (well sort of) since it is Neo Geo news and we haven't had any of that for quite a while. The MVS dump of Bust A Move has been "leaked" to the Internet. There is a text file included with the 1 meg zip that includes (among some other very heavy stuff) the following: "This is the USA-only version of Puzzle Bobble (naturally called Bust-A-Move), dumped by your only true last action hero, Apollo69. As you can see from the file dates, these roms are OLD. In any case, this will most probably be the LAST traditionally leaked Neo Geo ROM release you are ever going to see." - dutch

  • Cute, fuzzy animals with short, one-word names ending in "O" seems to be theme at Genesis Power today, with the release of Zero the Kamikaze Squirrel and Aero the Acrobat 2, numbers 168 and 169, respectively. Go ahead, you've earned it - indulge yourself in furry fun and download 'em at GP. Oh my. - david

  • Rumor has it that some "DC Pirates" are about to get busted. No word as to how true this is or who exactly might be going down. It mentions that this whole mess started from an individual at a US company who leaked the dev kit. Again, at this point all of this is rumor, not fact. Can you say "Uh oh?" - dutch

  • Welcome aboard Aries! It's great to have a Japanese & Chinese speaking reporter here at Retrogames. :) - prophet

It's called Liberty and costs $16.95. No sound support due to the Palm's hardware limits, there's a demo version to try before buying. So that little clamshell can finally play some good games! ;) - prophet

  • Just some notes regarding MAME WIP - first, Cal.50, woohoo!!! :) Second, to those drooling over the new Williams driver (Mortal Kombat 2, NBA Jam etc.) - a very fast system will be required to get good speeds from those games. Probably around 800Mhz or more. Nevertheless, it's an amazing achievement of ingenuity and reverse engineering, and people will hopefully applaud all of MAME team for their remarkable tenacity and talent. - prophet

  • MAME WIP update. - chris

  • Lemon just added 27 "new" C64 games and 28 cover scans 'for your downloading pleasure' *cough* :) - atila

  • A first public beta version of SortInfo, the MAME listinfo sorting tool, has been released.

Thanks to Nick C. for the news. - atila

  • Advance MAME was updated to version 0.37 Beta 4! Andrea Mazzoleni added several card specific drivers, including all the VsyncMAME drivers. :) And remember to download the utility pack as well, not just the binary. Advance MAME is an unofficial port of Official MAME with many advanced display related features, and a few cool tweaks here and there (Hotrod'ers - try auto centering for Sinistar etc.) It's NOT just for arcade monitors! Full screen, correct aspect ratios and game specific scan rates make a BIG difference in emulation accuracy. Files: Utility pack, Binary for Pentium II/III, Binary for Pentium, Source code. And "Please remember that before play you MUST READ THE DOCUMENTATION and SPEND TIME IN THE CONFIGURATION PROCESS. You can't simply download and run." Cause it's Advanced! ;) - prophet

See, only a few days more and you'll be able to play Bomberman across the 'net on SNES9x (I hope ;) - atila

  • Speaking of NES emulators, Brad Oliver has been working hard on improving NES emulation for MESS. It would be worth comparing the new MESS NES driver with your favorite NES emulator when beta 5 is relased to see how it stacks up. From what I have read, the MESS version is probably going to be the most accurate NES emulation in existance, being able to play 99% of all NES games perfectly (if not 100%). Brad also mentioned the possibility of lightgun support as well. - chris
