Where Can I Get Mame 0.36 b1 and 2

greenspun.com : LUSENET : MAME Action Replay : One Thread

Guys, I'm trying to playback a couple of recordings but need the first two 0.36 betas. They aren't on the 'Old Mame Versions' page and I've searched around a bit elsewhere but with no luck so far. There are plenty of previous final releases to be had but no betas.

I'm going to exchange a little secret... on mame.retrogames.com, they actually do have archives of earlier betas! They're hidden however, but can easily be found - I think the file is m36b7b.zip or something like that. Replace the b7 with b1 or b2(i.e. m36b2b.zip) in the location URL, and bang you've got the files! Be aware though, when you unzip the file, be careful you don't overwrite your newer MAME executable.

You can click on the Older Mame Versions Link on the mame.retrogames.com Download Page:

Neither answer works. The location url appears to be http://marp.retrogrames.com/exe/.zip for all the betas available on the Versions page where = mameXX for full releases (XX version number) or = mXXbY for beta release Y of version XX. I have tried the obvious


and more obtuse permutations with no success. Can you please be more specific, like actually specifying the url for Version 36, Beta 1 if it actually exists on this server.

OK, I have the exact URL now.


Replace b1b with b2b for beta 2.

I hope that solves your problem :)

Fantastic. I've got to them at last. Thanks for the info, I never would have found them otherwise. Strange that parts of my bulletin post were butchered - the html references. The bulletin doesn't seem to like angled brackets.
