I'm out. Wolf 183 doesn't want to run on my very old crappy laptop. Refuses to start a game. Got fed up with it and deleted the damm thing :realmad:

Whats the problem? Just won't start up or giving you some sort of error?

The Mamearcade frontend that comes with wolfmame flashes a small window for a split second then nothing. Using the EmuLoader frontend it knows the roms are there but says can't find path if I try to run a game including the Pong rom that's built into mame. My laptop is around 7 years old and running Windows 7 which probably has a bit to do with things not working. Wolf 166 runs ok on this machine with EmuLoader but gives an error using Mamearcade then runs ok

Hmm strange must be something to do with the frontend using too many resources with the newer build
You familiar with command line?

Well Barra, how is it going? Create a thread and then abandon it. What's happening? Is your team 4th at the moment? What's the plan for the turnaround? What role do you play as captain, and how do you gee up the other gamers? What's happening in the chatter on Discord, is it useful?

That's a lot of ... 142524

Very early days yet. Only one team (Mekanix) have their full set of submissions in....watch this space.

Discord is very handy, best platform to run this sort of event. Each team has their own discord for discussions etc. theres also a general one that everyone is in so we can post announcements - heres the link: https://discord.gg/wgFXM2W
