    Default How to play console games on M.A.M.E.?.

    Hello!, thank you for reading my thread/post/inquiry. I have a Sega Genesis game that can not be played with Kega Fusion (so, please do not suggest me to use it), and have read that it can be played with M.E.S.S.. It happens that M.E.S.S. is now combined with M.A.M.E., then I downloaded M.A.M.E. 0.188 (the latest version) 64-bit for Windows from MAMEDEV.org.. I can play arcade games with that, but do not know how to play N.E.S. or Genesis games on it, I put some R.O.M.s in the "roms" folder of MAME, then what should I do now? (I can only see the arcade games on the emulator, not the N.E.S. nor Genesis R.O.M.s). I have researched the internet for hours, and all I find is complicated stuff full with strange (weird) technical words and instructions that I do not understand, as I am not a developer, nor a programmer nor something like that, and that does not help me at all. I will appreciate if someone is kind enough to explain me in a clear, understandable way what to do without writing such comments as "Google it!" or "You should now that" (if I knew it I would not be posting my question). Thank you very much for your comprehension and help.

    Hello!, thank you for your quick answer; it is not common to find answers here, as it appears that very few people visit this forum (or want to help).

    The game that is causing me trouble is "Pier Solar and the Great Architects" (that is the one which originated this whole situation). The game can not be played on Gens (I installed it and did not work, even after lots of tweaking, and also have read that it can not be played on Gens). I installed Retroarch also, but do not know how to make it run that game (in the case that it will be able to do it) or any other game . There is very little information on the internet about Retroarch (other than very technical and weird information), and I do not even know if Retroarch is an emulator itself or if it s an emulator manager. I have read on different sites that the game can be played with M.E.S.S. (which is now combined with M.A.M.E.), but do not know how to make M.E.S.S. (I have a former version) nor M.A.M.E. (which now includes M.E.S.S.) run it. I have read also that none of the latest versions of M.E.S.S. or M.A.M.E. need B.I.O.S. for N.E.S. nor Genesis (in the case that by "drivers" you meant "B.I.O.S.").

    I still would like to use M.A.M.E. with N.E.S. and Genesis games, but all the information I have found during many hours and days of researching is too complicated. The people who post that information either want to brag about their knowledge, or post it just to their fellow developers/programmers, or do not have the knowledge for typing the information in easy and understandable terms. I think (and can be sure about it) that there are thousands (or perhaps millions) of people around the world that would like to use such emultators, but because the information about them is presented in such a complicated way, the big mayority of the people can not use and enjoy such good programs. It is my hope that I will find someone nice enough as to explain me how to use M.A.M.E. (or at least M.E.S.S.) with console games, or at least to direct me to a site made for the average person, so that I will understand the instructions.

    Thank you very much for all your help (dziękuję).

    other emulators :
    Chankast

    Dreamemu

    nulldc

    try with those

    play nes and genesis on mame and mess its not posible im not tell about bios but driver
    driver is part of code of emulator wich load bios also crypt/decrypt rom(graphic and audio) such feature is in mame and in mess
    im dont know how write it more clearly
    drivers are wirten in C++ or maybe C im dont remember
    also cpu emulation is needed (of existing console)
    more knowledge have developers thats why they sent you there
    for retroarch is need write a new core (complexed build in emulator) then retroarch load core
    each core is emulator of its own but can be loaded only by retroarch program.
    not applicable ffmpeg

    Hello!, I wish to thank you for your ideas, and as a courtesy, I am writing this message to you, as this is the very first time in many years that I receive an answer here, because I have posted several times before, and hundreds of people read my questions, but nobody has had any interest to help, even with very simple things as to how to use Game Genie with an emulator.

    So, I am writing to let you know that M.A.M.E. and M.E.S.S. can emulate game consoles, such as all the systems of Atari, all (or almost all) the systems of Sega, all the systems of Nintendo up to Nintendo 64, Play Station 1, calculators and hundreds of other consoles/systems. Please stop writing that it is not possible, and get informed first. To start, you can go here: http://mamedev.org/, and as the sites states: "MAME now documents a wide variety of (mostly vintage) computers, video game consoles and calculators, in addition to the arcade video games that were its initial focus.". You can find a full list of supported systems in M.E.S.S. here: https://www.mess.org/supported_systems. I have finally been able to run the game "Pier Solar and the Great Architects" with M.A.M.E. (which now has absorbed M.E.S.S.), and I have read so far that that game can only be played with M.E.S.S. (or now with M.A.M.E.). So, how come that you keep writing that console games can not be played with M.E.S.S. nor M.A.M.E. and I have played so many already (N.E.S., S.N.E.S., Genesis, Sega Master System, GameBoy Advance and others)?. Informe yourself first before you write/comment, that is my advise. And again, thank you very much for your help.

    Have you tried downloading the rom from a different site. Maybe its a bad download? If I remember this weekend I'll see if I have that game and try it on mine and see if it works. Out of all the emulators Sega has kicked my butt the most. Be patent with pix07, he knows a lot but he is from Poland and he is still learning English but he is more than willing to help.
