I'm just preparing FBA for my Zero - I've got every other emulator running beautifully.

I have a question though: the .149 rom set is huge, over 34Gb. What are people here doing to get it down to a manageable size?Mame4All does a nice job so I'd only be using FBA for NeoGeo and CPS etc.
 It seems like a big time-consuming job picking NeoGeo and CPS titles out of 18,000 roms to move to FBA. I am up for it though, unless there's some blindingly simple answer I haven't figured out!

What did you guys do? Am I missing something?

Edit: I'm half way though... the miracle of coffee!

You should download directly the 0.2.97.29 FBA Romset (about 8.7 GB)... :)

Bugger - wish I'd seen that before I started lol! I'm done now anyway, I have only NeoGeo, CPS1 and CPS2 english titles, no clones. 196 roms, 2.9Gb. Previews look great!

Also the Toaplan games are emulated very well ! ;)

@ d_smagin: as we know the next GCW Zero firmware will add the triple buffer support... will you achieve a new FBA version which take advantage of this feature?

Yes, sure, it's a matter of altering one line.

Great...  then I suppose that some games (like those based on System16/18 hardware) will have an fps increase!

Here's a complete FBA 0.2.97.29 PNG screenshot package (made from MAME extras)...

http://www.mediafire.com/download/tmb4q99fxvt8bad/fba_029729_previews_gcw0.zip

Those images have the correct aspect ratio. Easier to determine whether a game runs in vertical or horizontal screen mode.

I'd like to see 2 things implemented in a future release. They've both been mentioned.

1. Show only parent roms. They're already shown in a different colour so I presume that wouldn't be difficult.

2. Rotate screen. Mame4All does this beautifully (for the most part). I must be an unco, because I can't play games sideways to save my life. Mind you, I can barely play them vertically either.. ;D

Other than these issues I'm enjoying FBA immensely!

I would add :
3 - Add a filter to see the games by platform:

 - All,
 - Capcom CPS-1,
 - Capcom CPS-2,
 - Capcom CPS-3,
 - Cave,
 - Data East DEC-0, DEC-8 and DECO IC16 based games,
 - Galaxian based hardware,
 - Irem M62, M63, M72, M90 and M92 hardware,
 - Kaneko 16,
 - Konami,
 - Neo-Geo,
 - Pacman based hardware,
 - PGM,
 - Psikyo 68EC020 and SH-2 based hardware,
 - Sega System 1, System 16 (and similar), System 18, X-Board and Y-Board,
 - Toaplan 1,
 - Toaplan 2,
 - Taito F2, X, Z and others,
 - Others.

Or a reduced list but at least Neo geo, CPS1, CPS2, Cave and System 16 ...

Hello I'm using the latest version of FBA and I downloaded a rom set called MAME0.148-0.149, there was 262 files in the zip, only 57 available roms when I load up FBA, I checked the names in the gamelist and made sure the file names matched, which they do, and none of them work.

When I try to run a rom, I get this "Error loading rom (not found) Loading (will say graphics or sound) (random letters n numbers here) (not found)

Edit: I did get one game to work

I'm not in the process of downloading another, rather larger rom set called MAME_0.149_ROMS which is 42.6GB  :o :o :o

You downloaded an upgrade (or diff) romset from 0.148 to 0.149, no wonder that it doesn't work. The real romset is very big (yes, 42 Gb), but not all games are supported.

Can someone help me find a source for the compatible set or individual roms?  I have only found a few that work and all the ones I am after just error out with a loading can't load rom error.

Unfortunatelly, sharing ROMs is not allowed on these boards.

Those would be good to have.

Also saw someone else request autofire and analog option for all games. I would love those as well, especially autofire.

I'm not so young anymore, and rapidly hitting little buttons on a tiny device cramps my thumbs up pretty bad. Especially on SHMUPs. I can't really play certain games more than a couple of minutes because if this. :-/


Otherwise FBA is superb on GCW and love it!

It may be the problem of imperfect emulation (check how kof2003 behaves on official FBA).
Check clones as well, they may be better emulated.

Mediafire: fba_029724_previews_optipng.zip (70.11MB)

I converted all pictures to 8bit depth and used optiPNG.
The whole directory (2840 files) is now only 26,1Mb...

I hope I didn't corrupt anything , everything seem correct. :)
