Get your brother to play Simpsons Arcade with you, if you're not too brainlet to configure controllers. For my old DualShock3s, drivers are baked into Ubuntu's kernel. I can't even use them wirelessly with my phone without rooting, and they never stop charging if connected by OTG

>he doesn't just update his set every once in a while
>he doesn't update only when new games are promoted to working that he actually gives a shit about
Last old update that mattered was .155 for Raiden 2 and Raiden DX. Last recent update that matters is 0.193 for SF Rush: The Rock, 0.196 for Motor Raid - Twin, VF2, and War:The Final Assault, or 0.198 for Capcom VS SNK MF2000 Pro. Unless you really give a flying fuck about obscure pre-85 games, Tiger Electronics handhelds, or clones, there is no reason to update every time MAME updates.

>> No.4943247

Load up the torrent, point it at your old folder, do a scan. Boom it automatically downloads the new/updated roms.

Has anyone been able to successfully update their sets manually with 0.200? I ask because I've never had a problem before with RomCenter, but now with 0.200 the program locks up hard trying to either pull a database from MAME or using a database file. I've tried Romulous, clrmamepro, and something else I can't remember the name of, and all of them crash and fail. Is 0.200 bugged or are the current rom manager programs fucked? I've never had this issue before trying to manually build a set.

All of them. They're from the Dot Emu Neo Geo 25th anniversary pack Humble put out a few years ago. I found most of the Neo Geo files I need, but I'm still missing those two files. Every game won't run because it's missing those two files.

If you only want 2D stuff, any core2duo or newer is fine. No need for a GPU at all if you're playing on a regular monitor.

If you want 3D games to run flawlessly, right now you need a beat system.

sadly, the best way is to do it by hand. Google a few top lists, and see what you like the look of. Also, google the different between merged, split, and non-merged sets to figure out what you have. If you have a split set, deleting the parent will render the children games (clones, bootlegs, variation sets, etc) useless.

>> No.4955458


>> No.4955767

Get a ROM manager program, tell it to merge everything. There, now instead of 50 versions of the same game, you have 1 .zip containing everything for that game. Rename it to the version of the game you want.
