WolfMAME 0.174 can't load certain game(s)?

Post by pat33999 » Fri May 27, 2016 5:50 pm

I discovered this while EmuLoader was trying to create the WolfMAME 0.174 game list. An error message appeared saying that the rom set 280zzzap coudn't be parsed, which halted creation of the list.

It seems to be an issue with wolf174. Trying to lauch it with the internal GUI causes wolf174 to immediately close without an error message. Regular MAME 0.174 and wolf173 can both load the game without any problem.

I'm not sure if this problem affects any other games or not. I tried a few other games at random, and they loaded normally.

Could someone else try loading up 280zzzap in wolf174, just to confirm that I'm not doing something wrong?

Seems all Midway 8080 games were failing. Recompiled that driver, and now that driver seems to work okay. I'll blame Wine. :)

Binaries have been updated, please re-download.
