Compiling Mame - error message
Posted 11 March 2013 - 07:29 PM
I'm trying to compile Mame. I have tried the method using Mame Compiler 64 (Headkaze) and using Mr Do's method (http://mrdo.mameworld.info/compile.php )
In both cases I get error messages.
Mr Do's method
After a short while I always get the following error-message when I use the command "makemame".
src/osd/windows/winfile.c: In function 'DWORD create_path_recursive(const TCHAR*
src/osd/windows/winfile.c:358:8:error: variable 'filerr' set but not used [-Werror=unused-but-set-variable]
cc1plus.exe:all warnings being treated as errors
make: ***[obj/windows/mame64/osd/windows/winfile.o] Error 1
make: ***Waiting for unfinished jobs....
Headkaze's method (mame compiler 64)
Using Parameters -j5 ARCHOPTS="-march=pentium-m -msse3" MSVC_BUILD=1 PTR64=1 -f MameUI.mak
MameUI.mak:40: warning: overriding recipe for target `mameui64.exe'

process_easy() failed to launch process (e=6)
0 Hours 0 Minutes and 0 Seconds Elapsed.
mkdir.exe -p obj/winui/vmame64
Counted 3 args in failed launch
The patches did work, but the compiling doesn't (see errors)
I've checked everything. All my directories are correct. The diff-files are in the right place. I do not know what I am doing wrong.
It's driving me crazy Does anybody have a clue how I can fix this ?
Thanks in advance !

You get the that error using both methods?

I hope you or somebody else can help me! Thank you

do you try to make a MAME-UI compile? it didnt worked for me too, but "normal" MAME did go all the way. give it a try, with the "normal" MAME source-code, it should go .
also if you want to use that MAME for a cab, i recommend "cabmame" or "groovymame", both versions are great for cab-users and have many great stuff build-in, like hiscore saves, no nag-screens, better sound sync support and arcade-perfect resolutions.

Thank you. I'll definitely check it out this week. Which one do you prefer: cabmame or groovymame?
What also comes to mind: does groovy/cab-mame also work together with the HiToText-tool for showing highscores in the gamemenu of GameEx? See picture below

both save hi-scores but if this works with HiToText-tool .... i dont know, i would say yes.
if you have a ATI card, then go definetely with "groovy-mame", also NVIDIA is supported (newest version) but it is not as good as ATI which is more like "plug n´play".
if you have a NVIDIA go with "cab-MAME", as it have better support for this brand, than groovy-MAME has.
All in all, groovy-MAME is more user-friendly and it is easier to achieve "arcade-perfect" resolutions. you decide... if you looking for cab-usage, both are very good choices.

Thank you U-man and Draco!
I'll definitely check out Groovymame (although I have a Nvidia graphics card) and I also keep on trying to compile Mame using the Mamedev-website.
When I have questions I know where to ask ...
