    sdlmame. an up to date sdl port of mame (+ frontend)

    searching for the latest version of xmame i came to x.mame.net logically. There i found this.

    the latest newsmessage on http://x.mame.net/ states
    I thought it might be good to let you know that we're still alive, but that there's been a change in the past couple of months: I've stepped down as maintainer and command has been assumed by Laurent Desnogues. Unfortunately for him, he stepped in during the big video rewrite for MAME 0.107, and it's going to take some time and effort to get xmame and xmess working again.

    In the meantime, if you'd like to play with 0.108, I recommend that you try SDLmame and SDLmess, which are available from Arbee's WIP Emporium. Laurent is basing his work off of RB and OG's baby, so you'll have an idea of what's in store. RPMs for Fedora Core 5 and 6 are also available, courtesy of XulChris.
    it's a complete new port of the windows version of mame to SDL. AND the latest version 0.110u1 which in fact is the latest version of mame. So if you feel that xmame v0.106 is a bit outdated. Check it out. Unfortunately there isn't a .deb package.

    Hopefully this gets .deb packages and is put into the Debian / Ubuntu repositories when it's all caught up. So I can keep my MythTV box up to date with Mame. Not that the thousands of roms that Mame 0.106 supports isn't enough anyhow, but it never hurts to have more

    Re: sdlmame. an up to date sdl port of mame

    since i couldn't find a proper front-end to sdlmame i decided to make one myself.
    the problem: i only have limited bash skills, don't wanna even talk about other languages.
    so i used what i could use: bash.

    it's a small script that creates desktop icons for your roms.
    it can even use iconpacks (like mame32)
    -it's so stupid it should work with any version of mame and it integrates nice into your desktop.
    btw, you do need to edit some settings first

    -bug fix: not all icons end with ".ico".
    -bug fix: turbo and maybe others are now named correctly.

    Hope someone else likes it as well.

    haven't tried it yet cause i'm using the latest version compiled for my Athlonxp. I've added your package to https://wiki.ubuntu.com/MOTU/Packages/Candidates.

    You'll find SDLMAME packaged for Ubuntu Edgy on a repository at http://apt.ludomatic.fr. It's actually available for version 0.112u1.

    Code:

    It should work fine, all info available at http://apt.ludomatic.fr or with
    Code:
    $ man sdlmame
    after install.

    happy play

    Re: sdlmame. an up to date sdl port of mame

    I was already working on packaging SDLMame 0.112; I'm sorry I didn't read the forums in time...

    As posted on the SDLMame forum, I uploaded the source package on REVU for reviews. I hope they will be included in the official universe/multiverse repository in the future.

    Binary are also available for dapper, edgy and feisty here.

    nice !

    by the way, I keep an up-to-date packaging of SDLMAME now in version 0.112u2

    you can add the repository in your sources.list :
    Code:
      deb http://apt.ludomatic.fr edgy contrib
      deb-src http://apt.ludomatic.fr edgy contrib
    then simply add my security key :
    Code:
      $ wget http://apt.ludomatic.fr/ludomatic.key.asc -O - | sudo apt-key add -
    and install sdlmame :
    Code:
      $ sudo apt-get install sdlmame
    you will have an up-to-date sdlmame every time a release is done
