Addidng Drivers to MAME4ALL on Dreamcast help.
« on: December 14, 2011, 02:02:50 AM »
Hi everyone.Im currently fixing up an Arcade machine and decidied to put  a Dreamcast inside it.I also want to get MAME running on it.Unfortunately the version that is released doesnt support CPS2.I was wondering if its possible to download the MAME4All source code from the website heree:http://chui.dcemu.co.uk/mame4all.html#Downloads, and then find the driver for the CPS 2 (from here:http://mamedev.org/source/src/mame/drivers/cps2.c.html) and add it in, just to see if any of the CPS 2 games will work.I don't really know what to do, is anyone able to explain what Id need to do to get this to run so I can try.

Mame4All is based off the Mame 0.3x series.   Which is approximately 11 years old.

It's practically a different project entirely to the MAME you find today.  You can't just copy + paste drivers from current sources into something so old, I doubt a single line would even compile.  The whole of MAME has been rewritten 2-3 times since then.
