Great to see additions but with 11gb updates can we please please make sure only working stuff goes on. Obviously there's no way to 100% check each game but at least if it boots and starts playing is good.

Any that don't just mark off on your side and await updates to DOSBOX etc and then add them if they work.

The only reason I ask this is that MAME as a collection is two thirds non working stuff, many items will never work ie mechanical and others even if they do eventually work will require PC's from the year 2090 to run at a decent FPS (under MAME's dev way).

As said, its great to have the collection of yours and I'm loving it but try and be careful of introducing non working ISO's as the gig download time is huge and a bit of a waste if it does not work.

So far its BRILLIANT but with large ISO's its easy to get bogged down...

Thanks..

i check all games that i insert.
I left some "not working" because maybe don't work with my systems or dosbox not work very well with my operating system that is WinXP x64.
i'm sorry for STar Trek Next Generation Final Unity if there is problem with swap files, but in the future i fix it forever :)

You need to edit pool.cfg in the game zip archive and set the two paths to C:\ then run conf.exe (set this as the game file for the purpose of updating the setup) and remove the save directory path (blank) this will force it to save to root of the virtual C drive, once game has started up exit out and let game archive update itself with the new setup, right click on the game entry and change the game file back to start.exe, the game will now run correctly.

it's the same.
Some compressed iso file was to slow to load and more slow in re-zip.
so i have decompressed and some games are very big.

Phantasmagoria are 2 GB and some other games are on about 500 MB.

Tonight i finished to add all games that working with my check.
now i have to insert 4 iso games and then a way to upload..

ah..i have to finish info detail and to find manual and walkthrough, oitherwise i insert them in a special update
