You're right. The suggestion was for a few reasons. This is the image I started with so I know it works; the Linux / package base has already been tweaked; and to try the roms with advmame to see if they worked (which it seems like you already have);yottskry wrote:Yep, I'm willing to try that, but isn't PiMame just AdvanceMame? I've had no problems getting AdvanceMame to run, it just simply isn't fast enough, whereas Mame4All runs perfectly fast but gives me issues with sound.As an experiment, are you willing to try using the PiMame 0.5 image and then installing this?
PiMame image is at http://socialcase.com/raspberrypi/pimam ... g.beta.zip (don't worry about it being beta-that's just the PiMame code).
Also, what sound device are you using?
Lastly some roms need the corresponding samples.
I'll try something out later and will update this post.
But I can certainly try PiMame 0.5 and compile Mame4All. Might be interesting to see what happens.
You don't need to compile mame4all - just grab it from the pistore.
I had sound problems at first myself but were mostly due to the sound device config (USB sound card).
