Long story short: got tired of px68k not supporting MIDI and saw that X68k emulation in MAME is getting damn good. So as of right now I’ve finally managed to boot into the games, the lack of up-to-date documentation about the process having been my biggest gripe. Where I’m stuck is I have no idea where the settings are saved, if they save at all, and how to go about properly setting things up to begin with.
- Games boot displaying both the game itself and the LEDs of the emulated machine. I can sort this out by going into the MAME menu and fiddling with the video options. These don’t seem to save, at all.
- I have no idea whether the video option 4:3 or ‘Pixel Aspect 3/2’ corresponds to actual pixel-perfect output. The latter should be correct, but the former looks more correct. Also don’t understand the ‘Non-integer scale’ option, as it doesn’t seem to affect anything.
- I’d like to hook up my MIDI synths like MUNT and SC VA. I can set up MIDI out as an expansion card through the MAME menu, and this setting I’ve managed to save (!) somehow, but that doesn’t get me very far. Wish I knew if and where these things get stored as text.
If anybody’s got a working setup, please inform me of things like important core options, relevant folders and files etc.
Also, I understand only the original 68000 BIOS has good support in MAME. How do I go about playing more demanding games like Mahou Daisakusen? Is overclocking viable?
Thank you in advance!
