Back on the topic of MAME 1.2, is anybody else getting "unable to initialize video" errors on games that previously worked in v1.1? (eg: Simpsons, Vendetta). I tried all video modes (8bit, 16bit, auto) and kept getting the same error.
I'm still using dmenu 0.4, if that makes a difference (ie: available memory).
I have not had that problem, running dmenu 0.4
@demon - yes, the same thing happens to me...goes back to Dingux menu, not MAME menu. Not sure why.
One other thing I noticed, you have to be careful about playing with the settings...because the settings you set, then become default for the next game you start up, unless you re-set them again. Or select a game that already has had custom settings applied to it.
And the games then seem to keep those defaults unless you reset them.
Example, if you clock down to 70% on one game...the next game you start up...will start at a clock setting of 70%...unless you already changed that game in some other way, then it will load that game's defaults. and the new game you just started will adopt those settings as that game's defaults.
So, you want to pay attention when changing games. It does not go back to a pre-set MAME-wide default.
