I apologize if this has been posted already, but here's the problem... this has been happening to me a lot lately with the latest version posted on kaillera.com (mostly on the fugu server).
I'll host a game, and then exit. I try to host another game but the "create game" button does NOTHING, and often I can't see my own chat text either.
It's really annoying, and the only way it seems to fix it (to host again) is to restart mame32k completely.
Here is my system info:
geforce2 gts 32 mb
256 mb ram
AMD Athlon 1 Ghz
direct x 8.1
Also, another problem I've noticed is that in mame32k, whilst playing the "chat text" is crappy compared to how it was several versions ago. Now when it displays its in a tiny font and it leaves an ugly "blob" behind after its disapeared on the screen that doesn't go away.. its a banded whitish color.
I kind of wish the display options from the official mame32k were incorporated into mame32k.
Finally, I'd like to request adding back in "Steadykey support" to mame32k. It is a feature (in control options) of the official mame32, and it is very useful because it lets you press multiple keys at the same time (without having to record macros in the tab menu) and it actually works.
Otherwise, good job, and good luck with Kaillera 2.0 (or 1.0 whatever it is)!
Set your mojob mame color in display to match your stupid ass desktop color to avoid black screen in netplay, fukaz. t(';'t -TFR, AD 2-20-02
