The latest release of Xmame/Xmess-0.72.1 has been released with the following changes:

Everything from MAME 0.72 and MESS 0.72. – The various effects enabled by -effect now work with rotation enabled.
– The Xv target supports more effects.
– The rc parsing code displays more compact and readable error messages.
– Xv windowed mode is now enabled with “-x11-mode 2″ or “-x11 2″, and Xv fullscreen mode is enabled with “-x11-mode 3″ or “-x11 3″. The “-[no]xv” and “-fullscreen” switches are no longer available for X11 builds. – Networking should work again. I’d forgotten to change instances of MAME_NET in src/unix to XMAME_NET in the 0.70.1 release. – Added hotkey switching for Xv windowed mode via ALT + DEL and Xv fullscreen mode via ALT + END.
– The xfx target should build again.
– Added -widescreen for Xv. This shrinks the width of the output for display on a widescreen TV.

    When are they going to fix the NES emulation in MESS? The last version that I know had working NES emulation was 0.39b7. We’re up to 0.72.x now.

    Anyone who hasn’t run mame with 3Dfx Glide renderer is missing out. Perhaps one of the greatest reasons to own a voodoo3, or a voodoo4 in that sense, is to have the hardware glide support. Allthough this doesn’t pertain to XMAME/XMESS, does anyone know if openGL is supported or is it just X11 renderer? And if anyone has tried, can you give a report on XMAME/XMESS being able to run on the alternative X servers such as DirectFB’s XDirectFB X Window System server?

    Thanks dudes
