Dip Switches Generator 1.0
« on: September 08, 2008, 01:33:35 PM »
Hi,  :cool:



Here's a preliminary tool which can rip the dip switches of a MAME driver, and convert them to be useful by FBA.

You just have to run the soft, then enter the driver path, and you will find a dip.cpp file in the executable directory ;p

to compile it under GCC, use the command --------> dipripper.cpp -03 -o dipripper.exe

However, there's few things that are incomplete:

- ATM the #define are ignored, need to modify the code to get them automatically :idiot:

- need to find a way to ask user which inputs he wanna use (i'm speaking off the first element of BurnDipInfo struct, nInput).

- Finally, need to adjust the mask values (like 0xc000, which FBA can't handle).

For the rest, that's works pretty well, it could already save a lot of time, just add a try with cps1.c from MAME, that's funny lol  :biggrin: :biggrin:


Hope it will help :wink:

Great project you have there!
Can't wait to see it finished! It will improve the driver creation for FBA greatly.

That's quite useful. It might be useful to post updates to this in the FBA section tho as they might get missed.
