    Default mushihimesama in mame 0.143

    I know this issue had been risen many-a-times but of course all Cave shmup fans waited for the announcement when some of the newer games will be readily playable in mame. Just one short question related to Cave and mame concerns out-of-the box playability. I mean if I just don`t want the whole mame romset but just to run specific games (you guessed right mushihimesama and espgalauda 2 for example) is there a simple way of doing so with mame 0.143?

    That is all and I hope it`s not too lame question.

    Not sure what you are asking to be honest

    If you are asking can you donwload just one game for mame and be able to play it, then the answer is yes but you may need extra files for it to run

    Some game roms require a chd file aswell as the rom file, this usually contains an arcade HDD or CD-ROM/GD-ROM/DVD-ROM you amy also need a bios for that particular type of Arcade

    Also alot of games have a Master Rom and sub roms for different regions/releases, you will always require the master rom, usually the largest size rom

    I would also double check compat of the rom in MAME as not all compatible roms are playable, alot just have very basic WIP drivers

    As I know nothing of that game I can't give you exacts

    Oh I know the post is a bit confusing but what I was trying to say is that Cave shmups still do not run readily in mame and maybe the forum needs a sort of a guide for successfully running these games, starting from download from Emuparadise, through the version of mame and the other files needed like nvram, bioses and chds. To name some more Ibara, Ketsui, Espgalauda, Mushihimesama with sequels. Now I know about Shmupmame and shmups 11 forum but in fact Emuparadise`s community is more welcoming and I really made my first emulation steps here so...

    Yeah I kinda noticed that when I do go off forum looking for other things, alot of forums are rather unwelcomming, well mostly just plain rude specially to first time posters "noobs"

    Personly not my corner of things I don't upkeep the roms on here

    P.S. thought if a game used nvram it just created it, it's just a score keeping file generally, I know you can download ones with scores already on them though aswell.

    I do admit it's been a lil while since I used MAME myself though so maybe I'm a little behind.

    Kinda wish I could help you more
