Hello,
Since I try MAMECE3, MAMEBoy doesn't work anymore. It say's that the program has done an illegal operation.
Exception : 0x0000005
Adress: 0001cf08
What should I do to be able to use it anymore ?
I tried to reset it, no changes.
Thanks a lot !
Syl.

Backup everything, do a hard reset and try again.

Hi Marconelly, I've had the same problem as the guy above
and in fact had done what you suggested, which worked, but
now it's happening again. Any ideas as to what could be
causing this?

Also, which version of the MAME source is MAMEBoy based on?
I have a few roms for .36 final that didn't work, then
I tried some from .27 and they didn't work either. I've got Pacman and a few others working and it's great how fast they are! But I'd like to get Frogger and some other stuff
going...

Thanks in advance.

Never mind, I found an earlier thread re: 15MB free
needed.

Could this be included in the readme? And perhaps you
could even trap for the error in a future version.

I'm suggesting this 'cause I just *know* you don't
already have a big enough list ;)

Thanks for an excellent program and keep up the good
work!

This Happens to me before after that all program that runs under The old WinCE Won't run (like the PalmGB). Then When I was installing a Game I accidentlly overwrite the old GX.DLL file under Windows Directory, after that I was able to play MameBOY again. I think just by trying to re-install the GX.DLL again will get rid of that error message. Try it and see if it works.

MAMEBoy does not require GX.dll

Very important tip: If you have a 32MB device (E115, E125 etc...) make sure to have 15 MB of application memory free before running MAMEBoy. Otherwise it won't work!

Actually when this happens to me I have at least 20mb of free program Memory (All my applications are in my 128mb CF), and still had this problem. But I got it fix without Hard resetting my Cassiopeia. Suprise that Mameboy is not using GX.DLL, but I need it for the MAMECE3 and some other Jimmy Games. Reinstalling the GX.DLL Works for me.
