Autofire

I've had it up to the high Heavens right down from the bottom of the screaming Hells with autofire. I absolutely refuse to play people who use it now because it gives them an advantage that was never intentional and it's especially deadly in games where you can mash for extra hits or tech hit a throw. Many people who would suck without it don't and don't tell me to use it because that's not the point. Yes, in a word I'm mojob' pissed (ok that was two, sue me).

Any chance of this being pulled from the next version of MAME32k?

i figured some people has controllers with turbo anyway, just add it in emulator to make it fair. there are too many ways to cheat in online games with thirdparty software.

Yeah but less people have controllers than you think, many, many use a keyboard and besides, you suck anyway if you don't use a keyboard because let's face it, a stick isn't as accurate.

I say make it a host option (ie: the person running the game decides if its enabled).

But really, a stick may not be as "accurate" but its certainly fast, and that's the whole point!

Call ME old fashioned for preferring a joystick or joypad when playing any game (or any game for that matter, that was originally intended for a joypad or joystick type controller) other than First Person Shooters or driving games (in which case a steering wheel+pedals is best).

0ld sk001 here. ; )

AUTO FIRE SUX

it makes newbies look good

i was just fighting this bitch in xmen vs street fighter and because you cant throw him and his supers do like 60% dmg, he looks good
he has no timing, he only learned a pattern i do because ive been doing it 90 times per game and when i modify it a little, it breaks him and he cant counter

its so gay, autofire should be an option of the game maker or something

I don't like autofire either, but I also don't like whining.

It is a tough situation.

Yes it's Visual Basic, sue me. I'll write it in C++ once it works. Now, this all works fine and dandy, but neither Finalburn nor MAME pick up the keystrokes. It matches perfectly with the message spit out by Spy++, if any of you have that program...

If you're so mojob l33t why don't you use autofire back against them with their same character. You should in the very least know how to defend better.
