  1. For GameEX Arcade and even GameEX it would be cool if they can incorporate Wheel Sounds like HyperSpin does. These Wheel Sounds HyperSpin uses are 321 different MP3s in a folder. Every time you arrow up or arrow down on the game listing it plays a random one. It would also be nice if a random one was played when selecting a game or viewing something like flyers, marquee, etc. In GameEX Arcade. I played a lot of GameEX Arcade last night and it grew repetitive always hearing the same Galaga sound when picking a game. GameEX already supports and can play the Arcade Ambiance which is nice, but a random cycle of Arcade sounds when pressing keys on the game listing whould make GameEX Arcade even better Wheel Sounds NEW.zip
  2. [NEWS] GameEx 15.04

    Very impressive work, Tom. The update process is totally fast and looks like it's top-notch now. I'm really appreciating this updates. Would love to read how you changed this to be much faster and much more efficient. Thanks again, Tom
  3. I don't like using the artwork and have it turned off the majority of the time. Be sure you're using video d3d with hlsl enabled. I'll attach my ini folder to this post with settings I really enjoy. ini.zip A big display shouldn't matter as long as you're keeping proper aspect ratio and not stretching to fill the entire screen. mame.ini ini.zip
  4. In the GameEX setup wizard there's a section called MameOptions where GameEX will send command line parameters to MAME upon launching. As of right now you seem to be sending: MameOptions=-nowindow -joy -skip_gameinfo -readconfig I would try removing all of that then fire up GameEX and give a random game a run to see if that fixes your issue. If it does not then I would have to recommend getting the latest official binary from mamedev.org (baseline, command line version), and setting that up to your GameEX rather than using a MAMEUI. Many many bugfixes have been applied to critical things like UI handling and such, so it's critical that people update the build that they use. Since GameEX is your UI so to speak it's not necessary to use MAMEUI when you can use a more stable official release build. It helps to know your way around the mame.ini and simply set what you want there rather than trying to do it through clunky MAMEUI tabs.
  5. Rotate display via button?

    This is the exact reason why I run GameEX for horizontal games only and you can hook MAME into PinballX for those vertical games. Tom has added a wonderful feature where GameEX creates XMLs for use with PinballX. Check location GameEx\DATA\PINBALLX
  6. I agree man. Thank You gStAv for all your work and everything you've contributed.
  7. ArcadeVGA option in Gameex Arcade

    One thing is MAME has dropped ddraw which ArcadeVGA depends on for the custom resolutions and refresh rates that it can support. Another thing is ArcadeVGA only supports fixed resolutions and refresh rates as listed here Many games exist in MAME that run at non fixed or decimal values. 60.606061 Hz or 54.706840 Hz GroovyMAME is just the all-around better option with the proper hardware.
  8. ArcadeVGA option in Gameex Arcade

    Sorry that this post doesn't offer you a solution or answer your question, but ArcadeVGA is rather obsolete now. Recent changes in MAME have also made it obsolete as well. The better option is GroovyMAME w/ switchres and or CRT Emudriver. I'd have to suggest getting GroovyMAME working and pointing GameEX to that. I'm willing to bet that it will dramatically improve your mame experience. You can always try it in an empty folder so it doesn't mess with what you already have working.
  9. ArcadeVGA option in Gameex Arcade

    If the option forces your -video to gdi then -switchres option won't work. -switchres doesn't work with -video gdi
  10. [RESOLVED] Changing MAME Versions

    Oh wow, I didn't even know about that feature either. Glad you got it all sorted.
  11. [RESOLVED] Changing MAME Versions

    Did you grab the new GameEX Arcade Install that got updated yesterday? Please grab that and after installing, double check that all paths are set correctly in the Setup Wizard. Keep in mind you can copy and paste the paths in there as you browse them locally. After that's done then preform an Update List in GameEX Arcade Edition itself. After I fixed some minor problems from not running the Arcade Edition for a long time, I've noticed my log doesn't use -verifysets anymore. This isn't something you can enable or disable as tthurman pointed out. You just need to be sure your paths are correct in setup wizard as well as rompath option in mame.ini MAME has it's own internal UI that you can preform a test with to see if it works and launches games without errors without GameEX being involved. To have a successful GameEX experience you obviously want MAME to work without throwing any errors. Double click mame64.exe and type the name of a game you want to run in the search. If you can run a few games without MAME complaining then we need to figure out the issue with GameEX Arcade edition itself. Here's my latest log after my paths are set correctly and I installed the latest. You'll notice -verifysets isn't used and what it sends to MAME is MAME approved. log.txt

    It seems to have fixed itself. Thanks!
  13. [RESOLVED] Changing MAME Versions

    @spiffo I was able to reproduce your problem when my rompath was set wrong in the GameEX AE Setup Wizard. Once I corrected that then the games show as they should based on my settings. Here's a log of my last run but am unsure if it will actually help you. log.txt
  14. [RESOLVED] Changing MAME Versions

    I'm having a look at Arcade Edition right now in an attempt to figure it out. I searched your posted gameEX.ini and didn't find it in there so it's not making sense to me at the moment. Will keep looking to try and figure it out for you if no one else beats me to it
  15. [RESOLVED] Changing MAME Versions

    I looked at your log.txt after I posted and you insert an unknown option -verifysets Running: C: C:\Emulation\Emulators\MAME\mame64.exe -verifysets -rompath "C:\Emulation\ROMs\MAME" > C:\Users\User1\AppData\Local\Temp\verify.dat This needs to be corrected. I run MAME from my J:\ drive and my command-line argument is valid for MAME usage. Running: cmd.exe /c J: J:\MAME\mame64.exe xexexj -rompath J:\MAME ROMs (T7Z-Merged);J:\MAME CHDs;J:\SOFTWARE LIST ROMs;L:\MAME SOFTWARE LIST CHDs
