I've tried to build it. For a frontend only, it's no easy task has a bunch of dependencies to work out. If my distro was not so screwed now (thanks to me and myself) I could try to work it out, but I doubt I can . I will bookmark this link and try again when I install Libranet here. Really neat frontend judging by the screenshot. That's be great to build with my media box with only the joystick attacked to it

Cheers!

Cool. I'm now with a new system. Debian it is.I will give it a shot later . It really looks like a cool front end, but so far, it's the first front end I've seen that uses/ask for sdl. It must have a lot of cool effect on it .

Sorry about the late reaction, but I just found this site, and registered.

I'm the author of MAMEd, so if you have any problems with it, just send me an email at phulshof@xs4all.nl, and I'll help you sort it out. I'm currently considering some new features for a new release, so if you have any requests you know where to reach me.

Regards,

Pieter Hulshoff

Wow cool. One more strong developer comes to LinuxQuestions.org. Welcome Pieter Hulshoff!. It has been a long time since I last tried to build MAMEd, but I will get you informed when I try it again (I'm a bit busy with, unfortunately, Visual Basic at school)

Cheers!

Cool MAMEd front-end V 0.4 available

I've made version 0.4 of my MAMEd front-end available on my website at
www.xs4all.nl/~phulshof.

Changes are:
- added a simple ability to use other emulators (see install.txt).
- added more debug information.
- fixed a bug that made fonts invisible on some SDL installations.
- print "Loading..." string while loading the game.
- print a message while generating the MAMEd gamelist file so people don't
have to wonder why it is taking so long on the first boot.
- use MAME's -listinfo option i.s.o. the gamelist file.
- keep Favourites selection when upgrading MAMEd version.

Let me know if you run into any trouble while running it.

If you have any feature requests for version 0.5, don't hesitate to email me.

Regards,

Pieter Hulshoff

MAMEd front-end V 0.5 available

I've made version 0.5 of my MAMEd front-end available on my website at
www.xs4all.nl/~phulshof.

Changes are:
- added a "cycle" option for game shots to make it cycle through the title
shot, screen shot, marquee, and cabinet pictures.
- fixed a bug for sound problems when not running a sound server.
- added a dialog for the quitting of MAMEd to avoid accidental quitting.
- added a help image display option
- removed the automatic adding of a .zip name for other emulators (see
install.txt)

Let me know if you run into any trouble while running it.

If you have any feature requests for version 0.6, don't hesitate to email me at phulshof@xs4all.nl.

I've made version 0.7 of my MAMEd front-end available on my website at
www.xs4all.nl/~phulshof.

Changes are:
- Fixed a bug where MAMEd would crash if no sound was available, and the
_ user turns on sound anyway. (Thanx to Christopher Stone for the code)
- Added an option for music fadeout. This does not work on systems where
_ the soundcard does not support multiple applications to use it at the
_ same time, and where no sound demon is running.
- Fixed a bug that stopped the latest catver.ini from being usable. (Thanx
_ to Christopher Stone for the code).
- Put in a filter for mature games.
- Put in an option to allow full category names to be displayed.

Let me know if you run into any trouble while running it.

If you have any feature requests for version 0.8, don't hesitate to email me.

Resurrection

Hello all,

I've made version 0.8 of my MAMEd front-end available on my website at http://phulshof.home.xs4all.nl/mame.html. Featurewise it's exactly the same as version 0.7, but it should work with the latest versions of sdlmame and g++ now. I'm planning a larger upgrade with more skin-ability in the near future.

Kind regards,

Pieter Hulshoff
