I"ve got mameuifx"s 0.110 version from a link a user kindly provided on mameuifx official forum , and I finally switched from mameplus 0.108u5 to mameuifx 0.110.

High scores save well on dodonpachi and gunbird 2 etc , but this time , I"ve lost the ability to set dipswitch settings on neogeo games , and cannot set to home mode on any neogeo game. I use the same b10$ , but only free play availible and no other settings. I also noticed some green glitching screens come up when launching neogeo games , which I never experienced with mameplus...

Any help please ? :hello:

i also copy-pasted my original post at mameuifx forum ;

I"ve downloaded mame32fx from the link that alfman kindly provided , and was delighted to see it was compatible with my roms and my high scores were saved without any issues.

But when I switched to neogeo and attempted to play King of Fighters 98 , I noticed that the region and console-arcade mode settings in the dip switches menu are one , and I can only set to free play , thus not being able to set the timer to infinity , or change the difficulty.

I"ve copied my roms from my old mameplus installation , and also the same b10$ of neogeo which I used without problems for years... In right click settings menu of neogeo.c I can set the b10$ to Europe , US etc but makes no difference.

I"ve also downloaded neogeo unibios 2.3 but it makes no diffrence neither.

I was very happy my hi score problem being solved , but not being able to use home-mode in neogeo games is a big trade off for me... Sad

What can be the problem ? Doesn"t mameuifx support home mode in neogeo ?

Thanks for your help

No!

Home mode is AES and not included in mainline MAME.

HTH

Cheers,

Ralph.

Is it made availible in later builds , or is it even unsupported in current 0.140 ?

Sad to hear that , I was pleased with mameuifx , but losing in game settings menu and lots of options in neogeo fighters is a real big trade off for me.

Is it possible to enable them in mameuifx with some custom or hacked bios ? I want to get in-game menu of samsho5 and kof99 :(

Press F2 and wait for the menu to appear. Then use the Player 1 control keys, left CTRL and left ALT and Spacebar to get to what you need to select (and maybe the arrow keys too for moving up and down in the menu, I forget now). Anyway get to "Setting Up The Soft Dip" and select it. Once you get that done go to "Slot 1 (the game's name)" and select that then do the same to the things you want to turn on or off and/or increase or decrease. I forget exactly which keys (CTRL-ALT-Spacebar) do what so you will have to use trial and error to get around and I can't remember if you need to use the Enter key at times or not too but I don't think so. The one thing I am pretty sure of is to exit that menu, press the spacebar two times and select "Exit". Mame will save the settings you selected for the next time you play or until you change them again. I haven't done this in a quite a while as you can probably tell but I used to do it when I was playing Metal Slug and wanted to change the blood to red which it wasn't by default. I know for sure the number of lives, the difficulty, continue game or not and a lot of other things like Regions or Countries can be changed there too. I haven't done this in a while but it should work for most or all Neo-Geo games unless it got removed. I know in older versions of MAME, I don't know which ones but I am sure somebody else can tell you, there was a way to change between Arcade and Home versions there too but that was removed for sure quite a while ago. Give it a try and come back and tell us what you found. And if my poor directions are too hard to follow maybe somebody else here can post better ones.

Thank you very much for your detailed answer , it helped me and cleared a lot of points for me :)

I"m considering using mame32fx 0.110 and long time been using 0.108 plus so i wouldnt mind using even older version. I hope someone can answer from what versions on it is dropped. practice mode of kof is important for me -cause I suck at special moves-

(sorry for double post I couldnt find the button to edit)

I tried mameuifx 0.110s f2 menu but could not find setting to set to home mode to there , also no practice mode availible , and finally no option to set time to infinite (it is availible on mameplus 0.108"s in-game main menu) , so no-no for me sadly

I also added unibios 2.3 to my neogeo bios zip file but it is not recognized and listed on bios list , do I need an older version ? or doesnt mameuifx support unibios ?

thanks

Try Mess it support the Neo-geo AES (console) the roms needed can be build out of mame. But not all Neo-Geo games run on the Console version.

Another way is to use Nebula
