    Helllo to all you gbatempers,

    have been browsing the site for a while,
    I have been using ndsl and supercard mini for some time for gba
    and R4i for ds,
    I'm a big fan of the gba productions
    just picked up a 3DSXL and am getting used to it
    and finally feel that the bigger screen is better, though I wait for the day
    when the make the resolution sharper....

    any way it would be the cherry on the cake if I could get metal slug to run on the
    mame4all emulator, but I can't get it to run
    and I don't wont to fiddle around with the converter soft

    any body can point me in the right direction I'd be v happy

    (I tried dingoo but couldn't get the .msv rom to run, (maybe I need to rename it ???? )
    not too computer litterate to be honest hahhaha
    thanks........

    Is it just me, or are you asking for roms?

    Ace thanks for getting back

    answer yes and no... I know what we can and can't do on this site....
    I found two sets of 0.37b5 roms at an 'old' site, if you follow,
    but when I drop the zip file into the mame4all rom folder
    they don't show up,
    even if i go into moonshell2 to read the folder it's empty even tho' the zip file is in there
    am I missing something or are all the mslug 0.37b5 rom sets not working yet..
    thanks....

    Ichidan,

    as far as I know you don't extract mame zip from the folder, they are read directly from the zip folder
    but the folder does have to have the correct name, mine are just zip files for now and
    contain a bunch of .rom files
    but they have become 'invisible' - everything else on my dstwo works AOK,
    its just I can't get anything I want to run in mame4all to run for now......
    so if anyone has run mslug in mame4all on 3DSXL with a dstwo I'd be v happy to know
    how they did it...................................

    No, you leave MAME/Arcade roms zipped.

    @[member='spAceshoOter']: Mame4All isn't a 100% mame port, it only does certain types of arcade boards, NeoGeo (which Metal Slug in run on) not being one of them. You're going to have to use NeoDS instead, if you're having problems turning the .zips into .neo roms try using this with the converter.

    I believed and maybe wrongly that mame4all supports any 0.37b5 rom set
    and some mslug romsets are available
    neods doesn't really interest me as there are no save states
    (i believe it runs .mvs files but my goal is to run mslug thro' mame4all)
    maybe it's too early........

    neogeo roms on the dingoo require conversion. you can run metal slug on the neods emu, roms require "conversion" as well. the included documentation should help you out. i'm fairly certain that you will not be able to run metal slug on mame4all. alekmaul included documentation that outlines supported games, why not give that a read?

    great thanks I understand part of my problem now.

    I dumped mame and am running neods, wow what a neat idea
    anyway my problem is in fact that when I hit the convert file it goes thro' the process screen
    BUT i'm only getting one file out, yes only one, and its the neogeo.neo file,
    i have renamed it to the .zip file name (ie mslug in my case) and loaded it but it appears in
    neods but wont run, (which is probably normal as it's a sort of side file thingy)
    so what I now don't get is why I'm not getting my mslug zip file to produce the mslug.neo file
    total mystery to me, but I am almost, almost there, after much hassle tho'
    any help appreciated again.....

    Just to conclude,
    I moved away from the 0.37b5 conversion problem as so many of them came up dead
    and just hunted around for .neo instead, neo are you out there ;)
    and so far have got 2 4 5 6 and X running, 1 and 3 were duds 1st time round but I'll keep a look out for them
    thanks a lot, sometimes a small hint is all it takes,
    cheers and happy gaming

    the .neo file is the converted file that neods will run. renaming it will break compatibility as the emu is looking for the .neo extension to populate its list. look for neo-geo mame v0.120 roms, i do believe these are the files required for this emu. i highly recommend the universe bios as well, it offers some nice features like cheats and dip switch settings.

    Thanks for the info on the mame roms
    as for unibios, you just delete the previous bios and replace with unibios is that it,
    no other problems after that ???

    And a closing comment, when you look for roms for neods they must contain .bin files
    they seem to be the only ones that are convertible,
    so check your zip file before you get disappointed and
    even then some of the .neo files just wont run
    and some may run better than others, sometimes you have to get
    10 or so zip files to get one good one, until someone starts
    to make a host site for working tested .neo files
    thanks to all who make it possible as it is great to be able to neogeo on a ds after all........................

    when you use the conversion file, switch 8 will use the universe bios. (-bios8)
