Re: HELP WANTED: MRA file converter for MiST

No, I only did it for rom. I was under the impression that zip in part was deprecated. Why? It's not working for you? Re: setname. I cut them to 8 chars and replace a bunch of characters by '_': char bad_chars[] = " !@%^*~<>|:?'\""; nop. this zip part is where most of zip references ...

Re: MiST core and firmware changelog

yes, but i was talking about cores that will not (i think) be grouped... for example, for donkey kong, we can have an open rom feature (that now should not be needed) or start core with arc's. for this core, I also have this mra: Donkey Kong (2 marios) - HBMame.mra Donkey Kong (2600 graphics) - HBMa...

You can have several arc files for one RBF, e.g. game1_orig.arc, game1_hack.arc, etc...,just use the same MOD and different NAME. ok :( attri...

Re: MiST core and firmware changelog

other question: arc works out of the box with all cores or they need to be changed? What would be the benefit to make an arc file to a single-machine core? It won't handle the MOD value. Of course you can load any RBF via an ARC, just why? Maybe for overriding the core name (and ROM). so I can use ...

Maybe reading ROMs from the same directory as the core?
