hey there :)
i tried for countless hours to get the sound samples for old mame games to work without any success. any help would be greatly appreciated.
what have i done so far … retropie in the latest official version is running smooth. the mame default emulator is set to mame4all. im pretty sure, that i have the right rom set and the games are running more or less all. what i found by sorting out /reviewing the games is, that the sound on the older mame games is not working. for example the 2 games i try in specific are: berzerk and space invaders.
it took a while for me to realize, that for the first steps i need the correct sound samples. soooo i took them from the mame4all readme files which should be the right one do not post links to romsites and copied them over (unzipped the big file i just downloaded) to the corresponding folder from the mame.cfg file. but as you might allready thought .. without any luck … i also changed the path and copied them over to an alternative path .. but also without any luck. the samples name and the rom name match also …
am i missing something essential ?
thx in advance :)pixelbreiParticipant02/13/2016 at 16:31Post count: 4
okay … after a bit of testing and putting the roms in different folders and therefore different emulators as well, i found out, that the samples (at least for my test rom : berzerk) are only working when i put the roms in the folder for “mame-advmame”.
here i create two subfolders for “artwork” and “samples” and (atleast for berzerk) the 0.375 roms and samples and stuff, seem to work.
i did not change any other configs (no mame conf or pathschanges which seem to only be relevant for the libretro based mame stuff).
tldr … assuming i did not made any major faults, soundsamples for mame only work in the advance mame right now … but .. i loove mame4all way more then advmame (shaders/overlays for advmame anyone ??) :( :)
by the way .. can anyone guide me on how to setup hotkeys for advance mame ? ;)VGMonkeyParticipant02/14/2016 at 15:11Post count: 10
I’m having issues with samples in lr-imame4all. The samples work in mame4all but I can’t use the controller to play,
The samples don’t work in lr-imame4all but the controller works fine.
I’m on a pi1 b so the other mames are not an option.petrockblogKeymaster02/14/2016 at 17:35Post count: 1828
samples are not supported – I have submitted a pull request upstream to enable samples (by putting them in a samples folder in the same dir as the rom)VGMonkeyParticipant02/15/2016 at 08:37Post count: 10
Thank you, I never know if its my lack of knowledge or the fact that the emulators are still being worked on and updated.
