CD soundtracks for mame2003 titles



  • The SNES Classic modification scene has figured out a way to add CD soundtrack support to their version of mame2003:

    Hopefully it can be added to mame2003-plus at least!



  • Now a part of mame2003-plus! Thanks to KMFDMFan and gpstar for coding this, and twinaphex for backporting it to mame2003-plus!



  • The problem with all these ROM changes and fixes to mame2003-plus is that there's just no way of easily finding the ROMs at all that I can tell.



  • @markwkidd Is there a guide on how to add the music?

    You have the find the ROMs the way that MAME users usually do, unfortunately. You use ClrMamePro and the XML DAT Generator to hunt down what you need. One thing we're being careful about with mame2003-plus-libretro is that all of the ROMs needed by the DAT are still in circulation, although not to my knowledge in once place.

    Your best bet is to either get romsets that have been rebuilt for mame2003-plus from someone who has already done this or to do it yourself. If you have specific issues rebuilding the new mame2003-plus-romsets then post about it and I'll try to help.

    Remember that some existing mame 0.78/mame2003 romsets also work better in the current version! You don't have to start out with all the new ones.

    @Darksavior the most current instructions for this are still in the mame2003-plus-libretro github repository, in the issues section you will see. It requires three samples -- one for each game that can can now use the CD audio. The source is the Sega CD version of these games. Then the audio is split into mono files and named a certain way. I'm still figuring it out myself.

    Standard MAME samples are freely and easily available on the web. I don't think these hacked ROMs were ever added by MAME so they are not quite as widely circulated. This only broke out into MAME 2003 over the last few days though, it might be that there are more copies of these samples out on the web than I realize yet. Things are early -- but exciting.



  • keeping in mind that samples ARE NOT roms, can someone give me info on where I would find these samples? I've tried searching, and mostly find youtube vids.
