With all the good questions appearing in the previous post, I decided to make this post to answer them, rather than them getting lost in the comments section. These questions are also candidates for the MAMEdOX FAQ in the next release. so without further ado, here's the first installment of the MAMEdOX Q&A sessions!...
Does the Crystal of Kings run on MAMEdOX?
Answer: The quick and easy answer is 'no, the crystal system games (Crystal of Kings and Evo Soccer) do not run on MAMEdOX. This isn't my fault however, there seems to be an error in the code that Bendermike released to the public. On the other hand, you're not missing much. The crystal games never ran well anyway, due to the xbox not being powerful enough to run them fast enough.
It would be nice to maintain a list of working ROMS. Is this what the DAT file does? If it does, would it be possible to include a simple util to remove any unwanted roms fro the roms folder, and report any missing ones?
Answer: You're correct, the DAT files included with each release serve this very purpose. As for the application, you can use Romcenter or ClrMamePro to maintain your romsets. (Romcenter is recommended if you haven't used either before.)
Good work ebsy! Samsho5sp needs updating (maybe for 1.2???). 2 things: Current dat for m1d asks ofr incorrect size rom - also, sound problem using these roms that wasn't there in 1.0.
Answer: The samsho5sp set in MAMEdOX 1.1 is indeed incorrect. It's my fault, sorry about that. it is fixed in the next update though, correct m1d and v roms are in there.
Answer: Thanks!!. :)
