Re: MAME help

Well I "upgraded" my Ubuntu MAME install a few days ago, broke most of my ROMS (as in not running), so think
a recent version will be put back on instead.

not used a windows system in ages, so no help from me there. :lol:

Re: Hot Topic - Best Elite Conversion

Difficult choice, GnG on C64 was great, yes hard, but one of the few games I finished, then again Amiga Buggy Boy was a lot of fun, much fun had

I think I'm too into the PS2 and it's wealth of cheap, affordable games. Wii love it :P my other ...

I was aware that it shares the same freq as VCR`s and CH5, but still does not explain why it works fine on the CRT but not the ne...
