[ MAME .70 Sourecode Ported to dreamcast! DcSteve@ Jul 05 2003] Warmtoe has ported MAME .70 to dreamcast! Warmtoe states that when this source is unzipped ontop of the standard MAME v0.70 source (available from http://www.mame.net), it gives you a build environment for the DC.
In other words, getting these 2 downloads and putting them into your DC cross-compilation environment should allow you to build copies of MAME.
This is a *delta* ontop of the MAME distribution.

[ TMNT Arcade DC Updated! DcSteve@ Jun 13 2003] Reaper2k has released 2 new versions of the TMNT Arcade Mame Game for dreamcast. These releases have everything he's worked on for the last part of the year. They support 2 player only, as he still has bugs in his control code. The first release is called this TMNTSGA1. Sound and speed are really nice. The sound is better than his last version. It's slightly less smooth, but you will see miles a head of the last version in terms of balance, and It's SBI friendly. The slowdown is gone in these releases also. TMNTSGA2 is another update of the last version. Sound is slightly downgraded, and it is a PVR driver, not dma as reaper would like to write his own driver for that. What this means is the screen is stretched and smoother to the eye. 2 players works also, and is better than the first amazing release and it is .SBI friendly. You can find the updates in a special new zip format at IMRTECH OR you can download both of these releases in one conviently and regularly zipped file in the download section!

There are still some speed and sound issues. But both releases are completely playable and are optimizable. On the subject of settings, color mode should always be set to 0, that is the default value for any game. 6 uses the DC specific graphics mode Warmtoe introduced which is a lot quicker, but messy (doesn't use a palette). This really shows on Vendetta, so even though the default value in the settings is set to 6, 0 will give you the right look. You can grab both of these releases in the download page.
[ Simpsons Mame Arcade Dc Release 1 IS HERE!!! DcSteve@Wednesday-May-28-2003] Warmtoe has figured out a way to get simpsons the arcade game MAME to work on dreamcast.

You will be pleased to hear however that Reaper and Warmtoe are collaborating on this one. Warmtoe sent him the required source changes and he's going to try and push up the speed. Warmtoe also asked reaper to send him the speedups he puts in, so warmtoe can incorporate them into his build. Multiplayer mode works perfect with all 4 players.Push left then right on the d-pad to get past the "press ok", and To insert coins, simply push start + up. You can download this release at the download page!

[ NEO-GEO MAIM(MAME) UPDATED for Dreamcast! DcSteve@Thursday-November-21-2002] Warmtoe, has released his latest build of Neo-Geo MAME for DC. Speed has greatly improved, expecially with frameskip ZERO, no SOUND and default settings (press Y in the menu for default values). It can get around 70% speed out of Andro Donut (warmtoe's test game) and more out of Viewpoint which runs over 100% at some points and about 80% most of the time. This version features many options (it's far too confusing at the moment and the interface is a real mess) but the default values are NOT the fastest ones, using PVRDMA speeds things up for example. More changes include, Modifiying the M68000 emulation to speed it up (this benefits other emulation in MAME).He Added PVRDMA support to speed things up and added many other options to try and improve things, like test theories etc... This build also allows for many selectable video modes Color andmode forcing - which actually makes a big performance difference! This version is much faster with more compatibility.
