SubjectProblems running MEGACE under HP Ipaq 1945 Reply to this message

When I saw this emulator for pocket PC, I was excited; until I got to install it, that is.

HP Ipaq 1945 comes with 266MHz StrongARM processor by Samsung, 32MB ROM, 64MB RAM and I threw another 64MB of memory in by adding SmartMedia card. It has Pocket Windows CE 2003. After I install the emulator and put the zip into the memory, I still have about 9.95MB of program memory and 6.25MB of storage memory remaining. Enough with system specs, my problem is that I cannot run Metal Slug 1 or 2 with the MEGACE. When I fire up the emulator, the available game list is blank and I enable the "Show Clones" and I can see the Metal Slug 1 and 2 there. The problem is, when I try to run it, it only shows a blank screen and crashes back to the menu. I tried the dirtylines (aka the scalelines) and flip the screen to the horizontal position, but got no results. I set all my button configs to none by going into the Buttons setting. I tried putting the neogeo.zip BIOS into the ROMS folder but it only worsened the situation, by not doing anything except for a whole bunch of game lists under the "Show Clones" settings.

When I play Metal Slug 2 in MAME32, it works perfectly. And in WinKawaks and NeoRAGExp too.

mslug2.zip @ 16.7MB containing;

241-p1.bin
241-p2.bin
241-c1.bin
241-c4.bin
241-m1.bin
241-v1.bin
241-c3.bin
241-c2.bin
241-v2.bin
241-s1.bin

And I tried two different NG BIOSes.

neogeo.zip @ 64KB containing;

ng-lo.rom
ng-sfix.rom
ng-sm1.rom
neo-geo.rom

And neogeo.zip @ 240KB containing;

sp-s2.sp1
000-lo.lo
sfix.sfx
sm1.sm1
sp-e.sp1
sp-j2.rom
sp-s.sp1
vs-bios.rom
usa_2slt.bin
asia-s3.rom

Do I need more memory available to play or is it just not possible to play this game on my PPC? Any help will be appreciated. Thank you.

Hi,
NeoGeo games still do not work on MameCE3.
They are listed in games list becuase the drivers are enabled in the source code (Needed for some shared components in the source).
Perhaps in a future version this game will become functional.

Happy Holidays.
