All things must end

I am discontinuing my long-running association with the MAME and MESS projects. Please refer SDL questions to Couriersud or Olivier Galibert.
If you were emailing patches to me directly, please start sending them through normal channels (check mamedev.org).
ETA: Just to clarify, this is not a “quit the sk3n3″ thing. I’ll still post in the usual places. New versions of Audio Overload and M1 are still on the docket and I will continue to work with the SuperModel project to keep it running well on Linux and OS X.

Fruit Land

Any recently dumped a game called Fruit Land which was interesting since it was a small board with a complete 486 PC on a single chip that boots MS-DOS and the game off of an 8 MB Compact Flash card. After some help from PC expert Carl, we have it working except for sound. It has no obvious signs of who made it, but we believe it’s of Italian origin.
It starts up like so, with a custom BIOS:

You then get an oddly MS Paint-looking title screen:

UPDATE: As several people have pointed out, it appears to be an adaptation of this open source game by “MesSoft”.

Usually the band’s girlfriends do this sort of thing

Shakatto Tambourine 2K1 SPR LOL OMG (GDR-0013) was dumped by the DU. And it goes a little something like this:

Stranger than Mexican radio?

ShouTime and f205v got the Japan-only Naomi game “Mars TV” dumped. It starts off looking like this and then gets weird:

More MESS MIDI Madness

SVN now includes working support for the common Passport-and-clones Apple II MIDI card, which is also known as “6850 MIDI”. As far as I know this is a world first for Apple II emulation I’m trying to figure out how best to demo it, and I’ll post something soonish hopefully to show it off.

The Wilson sisters may sue me for this WIP

Here’s one of MESS’s work-in-progress Ensoniq synthesizer drivers wired up to MESS’s work-in-progress MIDI input. Latency isn’t great, but for a first-working it ain’t bad.

0.148 is out

You can now get both MAME and MESS Windows binaries at mamedev.org. That in itself is a good step forward, although the details of the packaging are a little weird right now. We’ll figure it out UME peeps can get Windows binaries direct from Haze. Note that UME SDL builds are still not officially supported and no binaries are provided, but I know several people have had good success with them.
