Not a lot. Made a new patch file, for converting MAME 0.31 sources to MAME 0.33 beta 3 sources (since BeeJay was asking about it) and answered a whole plethora of email about why recordings won't play back any more (it's because you need version 0.30 of the MAME binary to play back anthing that was recorded with version 0.30 of the MAME binary.
Added the new games from MAME 0.33 beta 3 to the big summary table.
MAME 0.33 beta 3 is released. I made diffs from MAME 0.33 beta 2 and made a page for diffs, since Gridle's Diff Page seems to have stopped using diffs, in preference for whole files (739k as opposed to 228k).
Started looking at ROMs for Fairy Land Story with a view to making a MAME driver for it. Click to see progress (what the is of it).
Added these files:
Added a request from Pete Ashdown for help on Blaster.
Added a request from Aquatarkus for help on Jack the Giant Killer.
There's a new stand-alone TNZS emulator that's available. Check it out!
Continued updating my links page. If you know of any good arcade / emulation links that I've missed, please let me know!
Made a page of screen shots of a new MAME driver I was working on. It's pretty much complete now, apart from the sound.
Couldn't find a Pentium version of the new binary anywhere, so I made one.
Added the new games from MAME 0.33 beta 2 to the big summary table.
Hey, Gridle, is that a big enough advert for you? :o)
There's another public beta release of MAME. The new sources and binary are all over the place. However, one bandwidth-concious individual has made a site which holds incremental diffs between the versions, so you only have to download around 100k, instead of 2 megs...
Added some more files, too:
Added the new games from MAME 0.33 beta 1 to the big summary table. Added more links to navigate around that table. Also added a version of the summary table which is sorted on game name, not grouped by MAME version.
Added these files:
Updated the links page. If I'm missing a link to any arcade emulation sites, please let me know.
It seems like JoseQ's voting booth idea is really taking off - he's got 8 sites involved now. Please vote if you didn't already.
Now that we're releasing public betas, please take even more care to tell me which version of MAME you use to make your recording. I'd prefer recordings to be made with a non-beta executable, but using betas is OK too. I'll refer to them as 'm33b1' for "MAME 0.33 beta version 1" in the tables.
Eventually got around to doing an update. Looks like I'm down to one a week now...
Uploaded a new recording: Tony "ACL"Driessen playing Congo Bongo.
Uploaded a new recording of myself playing Wonderboy Deluxe.
Added recording of ME playing Wonder Boy Deluxe.
Started work on a form for submission of recordings. Hopefully, using the form will speed up process of uploading the recordings, since I won't have to put the HTML together by hand any more. Unfortunately, it's not ready yet!
Updated all the tables on the high score pages.
Uploaded these files:
Added the MAME 0.31 games to the Summary page.
I'm getting even lazier. I'll update these properly in the tables when I get a chance, but for now, here's the latest recordings. Please when sending recordings from now on tell me which version of MAME you used, now that there's a choice...
Put JoseQ's voting booth on my stuff page. Please vote!
Added a recording of Kurt trashing the old Mr. Do high score.
Added a screen shot of Dith's records on Hyper Sports. It's on the stuff page.
Uploaded a new version of netBEUI showing a trick on mspacman, since the old one didn't play back properly. It's on the weird page.
Added recordings of Buddude playing dkong, Buddude playing dkongjr, BeeJay playing espial, BeeJay playing starforc, BeeJay playing tp84, JoustGod playing milliped, KRA playing bankp, KRA playing starforc, KRA playing yiear, Neil Chapman playing mspacman, Neil Chapman playing nrallyx, Robert Minasian playing kangaroo, TAB playing pooyan, TAB playing scramble, TAB playing tapper, Steve Krogman playing kangaroo, Evilvic playing capbowl and War_Pig playing pacman. (Yes - I generated that sentence using a macro. :o)
I've got lots of other recordings, but didn't have time to upload them yet. Hopefully I'll find time later today.
Also added recordings of Tripper playing Phoenix (Taito), Evilvic playing Bank Panic and KBL playing Hyper Sports.
Added recordings of KRA playing Bank Panic, Section Z and Star Force.
Added recordings of Dith playing Scramble and Snap Jack.
Added recordings of Bank Panic and Galaga from BeeJay.
Added a recording of Buddude playing Frogger.
Added recordings of Dig Dug (Atari), Dig Dug (Namco) and Time Pilot 84 from ACL.
Played about with the format of the A-C high score page, adding the date that the file was uploaded and the version of MAME that was used to record the file. I might get around to updating the other pages soon, but in the meantime, your comments are welcome.
Added a recording of Zwaxy playing Atari Tetris.
Finally got around to uploading some replay files that had been accumulating in my mailbox:
- Phoenix by Tripper
- Gauntlet by Clu
- Green Beret, Gun Smoke, Legendary Wings, Phoenix, Star Force and Time Pilot by BeeJay
Uploaded a remarkable Bomb Jack screen shot from BeeJay. See the "stuff" page.
Many apologies to KRA for my cruel suggestion that he may have used a non-standard number of lives in his Bank Panic recording. I was forgetting that these days KRA is a reformed character (and that it's JoustGod with his dodgy Missile Command scores that you've got to watch out for these days - j/k).
- Time Pilot from ACL
- Elevator Action (bootleg) from Clu
- The following from JoustGod:
- Missile Command
- Robot Bowling
- Track and Field
- Bank Panic from KRA:
- Kangaroo from Robert Minasian
- The following from Neil Chapman
- Circus Charlie
- Circus Charlie with level select
- Donkey Kong
- Space Zap
Removed question marks from scores that were confirmed to me by Neil Chapman and BeeJay. Thanks guys!
Reorganised the top frame a bit - took out the separate high score pages and the 'summary' list. Better? Worser? Tell me. Added a revised version of my Bubble Bobble 'FAQette' (careful how you say that).
Received a whole bunch of new recordings. And didn't get around to uploading them yet. Sorry!
Added a new high score on Traverse USA from BeeJay.
Added an updated recording of Hyper Sports from Dith and a new high score on Discs of Tron from Clu.
Added 6 new replay files from KRA:
- Break Thru

- Time Pilot
- Yie Ar Kung Foo
Removed lots of question marks from scores after receiving confirmations that they work from BeeJay and Steve Krogman.
