I'm using the latest version of Win32 MAME on a PIII 750 with 256 megs o' RAM. Here we go:
I have a 3-D card (NVIDA maybe?) in this desktop my aunt gave me. Got it all installed. What difference can this make in MAME? Do I need to do anything with it or is it used automatically? Can it help with 2-D stuff at all (like video memory or something)?
I get a lot of sound skipping. I understand it when the game is slowing down (it's not the fastest PC on the planet), but it has real trouble with voice work and/or digitized sound. What do I need to do? I won't let me change the audio latency. It won't let me (games won't load).
I want to use the two analog sticks I have for dual joystick games. What's the function I'm looking for in that menu (when you press tab in a game) to assign them?
Anything I can do in Windows to speed MAME up until I can afford some upgrades? Any special tricks or anything? I'm using this PC for nothing other than MAME. Got rid of all the spyware and ran a defragmenter I found online.
I've heard about using a PS2 controller via the USB port. I can't seem to find anything on E-bay. What am I looking for exactly (links)?
Anyway to assign the pause function to the controller? Can't seem to find it anywhere to assign it.
I've got more, but this is all I can think of right now. Thanks in advance!!!!!
