slaanesh: Thanks for this great Christmas gift. I tried it out quickly and it's just like the Dingoo A320 version that you made a few years back. I used the Mame 0.37b5 romset. Audio samples did not seem to work. Sound was distorted in many games. Some games like Zaxxon, Super Zaxxon, and Congo Bongo were messed up graphically. Shinobi ran and sounded great! This Beta version is showing great promise and many games are running at full speed with good sound. So thank you slaanesh for a great release on the Gemei A330.

I've only been testing with a very small subset of games.

Games which use samples should work - but I haven't tested any. I didn't rename the samples from *.zip to *.mz!

So you will have to do that in the Beta. I've fixed this already for the next release. Also there are many sample files that are no longer needed thanks to many updates i've made to drivers/

Zaxxon & Congo I will investigate! Fixed. Will be in the next release.

If you find any other issues, please let me know!

thanks slaanesh. tried it. none of mature/adult games (https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/List_of_erotic_video_games , 1 arcades) are showing up in any of submames', like gals series, fantasia series,
none of the slot machines neither like cherry(super-new etc.)/bar 5's-7's/butterfly/jingle bell - not showing up at all.
from the old stuff i tried exerion but it flipped screen clockwise 90' and its unplayable.
poker ladies seems to work well (at a glance) - happy that i played power spikes! seemingly flawlessly !!!! thanks 4all :)

Well, this isn't based on the latest version of MAME. And indirectly you raise a small issue that I will need to address.

Originally MAME4ALL is based on 0.37b5 - an ancient version of MAME.

My version of MAME4ALL is really very much updated. In fact *every* single existing driver has been updated to some degree - most up to Mame 0.84/0.105 standard. Many new drivers have been added. Literally hundreds of new games.

I can confirm there are no slot machine type games (I did look at adding "Black Rhino" but it was a lot of work and didn't go through with it). Some Adult games have been added:

Block Gal, Fantasy 95, Gun Dealer, Magix, etc. And certainly some others.

To solve the problem, I will create a list of supported games shortly.

As for Exerion, it's supposed to be rotated - and it should be playable! I'm playing it now!
Though the sound is not very good. Will investigate.

You did an amazing job Slaanesh!!! It's impressive how many games are working at or near full speed.

I've been doing tests with 0.37b5 romset, but I couldn't load any CPS1 game (crashes mame4all) and only few Neo Geo games work (most of them give bad rom message). I hope you can find time to make a dat file or list with the correct rom versions to be able to properly test them.

I also find sound too weak compared to other emulators, even at max volume.

Anyway, it looks fantastic and very promising. Thank you very much for bringing this to the Gemei!!!

Thanks and thanks you for your assistance too!

I've found the issues with CPS-1 games so that will be fixed in the next release.

Wow! Was shocked to see Mame ported to the GA330. After a bit of digging around I managed to find mine tucked away in the shed. Only tried a couple of games so far. Captain Commando doesn't display unfortunately but Shadow Dancer is running ok. Big thanks to you guys for your work

Do you have a DAT file please?

Can't test anything. Always getting no roms found error message.

Did you change the roms extension to .mz?

Yes, I did.

I was actually able to play a couple of games. Then I added some more ROMs. Now it doesn't find any games. Also deleted the files in the frontend directory, no luck.

From the frontend, press <SELECT> to re-scan ROM list once you add new ROMs.

There's many <unknown>" definitions in the file. Replacing them by unknown" (without the angle brackets) solves the error.

I'm a total noob with clrmamepro, but I've noticed all Neo Geo roms are not defined in the dat file.
