Friday Post: AdvanceMAME 1.4 debs

Hey All,

Updates maybe sporadic for the next few weeks.

AdvanceMAME updated to 1.4 so I have recompiled the source and made .debs out of it.  This will work on the Pi and Pi2.

AdvanceMAME 1.4 Deb Download

To install goto a terminal and type:

sudo dpkg --force-install -i advancemame_1.4-1_armhf.db

You will now have a directory in ~/.advance and will need to edit your advmame.rc file.

nano ~/.advance/advmame.rc

Add to the first line:

device_video_clock 5 - 50 / 15.62 / 50 ; 5 - 50 / 15.73 / 60

Then press ctrl-x then y and hit enter to save.

You can now place your game files into the ~/.advance/roms directory and launch a game with the command:

advmame gamename
advmame sf2

Have a good weekend all!

  1. Hi,

    It’s more of a question than a comment. I install your advancemame in Piplay 0.7.10.

    It work fine but except for the system I want 🙁

    I’m trying to run TI-994/a. It start with the opening screen with the legal information and when I type “OK” it goes to a black screen.
    (advmess ti99_4a)

    I try other system like the C64 and it work fine.
    (advmess c64)
    What is wrong?

    Is that computer simply not working yet?

    Thanks for your help
    (I’m new to linux)

  2. Thanks, but not working on RASPBIAN JESSIE, atleast not with Zero.

    sudo dpkg –force-install -i advancemame_1.4-1_armhf.db

    Gives an error and will not install.

    sudo dpkg –force-all -i advancemame_1.4-1_armhf.db
