4 humble little requests for the new version of FBA
« on: June 01, 2014, 01:56:07 am »
Was wondering if 4 things can be implamented into the new version of FBA before it gets released,

Stereo Fixed in CPS3 (and whatever else was effected)

Neogeo Macros returned

xBRZ added along with the original xBR

Universe Bios 3.1 for Neogeo

are any of these possible?

Sorry for asking a tall order, but im sure it would make alot of dedicated FBA fans happy.

The only thing I have against the Neogeo macros, is that they conflict with the FBA Macros which I know and love...  :p

Conflict?

So there was some reason they were removed?

Not just removed for the hell of it?

They were essential for me in alot of Neogeo Fighters to perform complicated moves, its REALLY hard pulling them off with just the 4 face buttons.

I'm not too sure, maybe we're talking about different things.  I'm sort of a newcomer to FBA, but I remember a version where the f-keys were were set up differently (for Neogeo games, I guess), and it was rather irritating.  Can you explain more of these macros you speak of, and I'll try to look into it?

Sure, you have access to fba_029708?

I believe that was the last version to have them in it, its not keyboard macros but game button combinations , like you can set different combinations of the ABCD neogeo buttons to a single button on the gamepad.

The ones for the Street Fighter games are still in FBA, but all those have/need are LP/MP/HP or LK/MK/HK on a single button.

Edit: attached a pic showing some of the Macros.

Already done. Also Hap's latest fix in mame for some repeated sounds is already added too.

Not sure on this one..

We'll see, I've never added a filter. I'm curious what it takes.

Can I ask why you didn't buy a six button game pad?  That was the first thing I did when I started using arcade emulators.  I know the four button ones are more common, but I was able to find one.

I think the Neo Geo macros got nuked when I updated the Neo Geo core to Jan's latest version to get Neo Geo CD support.

I'm not much of a Street Fighter player, I just map HP and HK to R1/R2.

You think its possible to add them back into the new core ?

Neo Geo macros hadn't actually been removed - they just broke with the Neo Geo core update of a long time ago.

Fix was pretty easy!
