    Hi,

    Which do you use Mame4all or Advmame?

    I found some games that ran slow in Mame4all run much better in Advmame. Plus I have a game which just wouldn’t work under Mame4all (missing files) work under Advmame.

    Thanks

    Generally speaking mame4all is optimised for speed but has less ROMs, advmame has more ROM options but a lot of the ROMs don’t run as well- some lag.

    Sounds like we should choose both depending on how the game runs.

    In my case, I cannot get ANY games to recognize my trackball controller in MAME4ALL. But AdvMAME recognizes it just fine as long as I don’t have a mouse plugged into the Pi. So for all the classic trackball games like Centipede, Millipede, Missile Command, etc., I use AdvMAME. Fortunately, those all run great in AdvMAME. For that matter, since the only games I play regularly were all made before the late 80’s, pretty much anything I want to play runs great in AdvMAME.

    Short answer is: both. I test a rom in both to see which one it runs better in.

    I can’t seem to get some games full screen in both, do you change anything to force full screen?

    I’d like to use both but I’m stuck with mame4all (not really a bad thing) because I cant get advmame to properly recognize ps3 controller inputs. It won’t map them correctly. I guess I’m not the only one, see:
