I have been playing around with mame4all, fba and xmame now for more than a week and I think xmame is the best version.
Why? It plays everything that Mame4all plays, so basically Mame4all has become obsolete in a way (though it is easier to install and more basic).
XMame also plays all the games Neogeo, CPS1, CPS2 etc that FBA Plays. Even thugh FBA has a nicer interface than mame at some levels, but that is only a matter of taste.
And it plays many games that neither M4ALL of FBA don't play. Like for instance the Irem M72 games rtype 2, loht, dragon breed, hammerin harry etc. So far I have seen only one game that runs better on FBA and that is Outrun. Has more fpm in FBA.
There's only a one minor thing that I don't like about Xmame and that is the icon of the program.
Is it possible to change that? Is there a way I could do that myself?
I would rather have something like this http://www.easyicon.net/language.en/1172073-mame_icon.html
And i also have a question about the two .bmp files that we can change in xmame.
One is the introscreen
And the other is the green menuscreen.
In a posting you say that it must be 8bit colour PNG file. Do you really mean PNG or did you mean BMP?
I am not able to create two new bmp files that are 82kb big. They both become smaller and therefor I am not able to change them myself.
I want to have a totally black menu screen and an introscreen in the same mood like the "M" icon that I posted.
How can I do this myself too?
