So I'm not dead, real life finally caught up with me and I don't seem to have much time on my hands any more. Cutting to the chase, I've made a couple of tiny bug fixes and got a new version ready...and you can now grab the source code if you want to play around with it. I also fixed the broken bits of this website (finally). Enjoy!

I've been fairly busy, and have prepared some new downloads, including MAME Resolution Tool v3.2, ShifterMame (M.A.M.E. build for driving/yoke games with fixed inputs) and TX1Mame, a custom M.A.M.E. build only supporting TX-1 (tx1 & tx1a) with fixed shifter inputs.

I've also been working on MAMEWAH, and you can grab v1.65 here. I found a very small bug with this so I hope to fix that and put a new version up here as soon as poss.

OK I decided to release new versions of a few things... Get to the downloads page for MAMEWAH v1.63 (minor fixes and additions), and MAME Resolution Tool v3 which now has native -listxml reading to make it easily compatible with M.A.M.E. v0.84+.

Something a little different...I have uploaded source changes & binary for a custom version of M.A.M.E. v0.125 I have recently compiled. Named 'ShifterMame360', in a nutshell, this supports only parent* roms of working* 360 degree wheel driving games ( * with a few exceptions). The point of this build is mainly to fix some of the rather annoying 'toggle' hi/lo shifter inputs (eg Pole Position), and to hook up dial inputs etc where possible. I have slightly altered the refresh rates of some games, to not exceed 59.85Hz, in order to avoid frame-skipping issues with a lot of video hardware (including but not exclusive to both generations of ArcadeVGA). I have also made some other changes to make configuring controls easier. Please see the document included in the download for full details - grab it here.

Seems to be overdue for my annual website update...so here it is, a new version of MAMEWAH! - get it here. Also, a while back I added some pictures of my almost complete cabinet. If you have sent me pics of your cabinet, apologies for the delay but I will get to adding these soon...
