I actually hate Darksukul as a person he constantly trolls me, but I agree with him here, Mame is pretty shitty. Even something as popular and common as X-Men Arcade is not emulated properly- the music is FM only, the sampled lyrics don't play or play very low, games have graphical issues or missing speech or sound errors, last time I messed with Mame and to be fair this was 8-10 years ago, games have screen tearing and input lag as well. Some games run too fast some too slow, ugh.
Ok thanks guys for clearing up the battery issue.
Its PAL. As for the tv and cable I used it years ago on an old CRT blocky tv and worked fine. They fit perfectly ok as of now but still the same display problem.
I'll look into this s-video to hdmi wire. Is this a good/best quality image I can get?
You say a lot, what are the limits? What doesn't run well? How about say, Sega Model 2 games (examples: Daytona USA, Virtua Fighter 2, House of the Dead),Sega System 32 (Golden Axe Revenge of Death Adder), Titan (which is Saturn based thus requires quite a bit, examples: Radiant Silvergun, Decathalete) PS1 based: Tekken 1-2, Namco System 22 (Tekken 3, Soul Calibur). What about Killer Instinct 2? What about Taito SH2 based stuff like RayForce, Darius Gaiden, SH3 Cave stuff like Mushihimesama Futari? Alot of this won't run on a modded Xbox for example.
Also I'm only doing this if the emulation is full speed. I can't tolerate frameskips, screen tearing etc.
"Incompetently made" is a bit harsh, cinematography, score, casting were excellent.
