    I found another UI issue about the, WINXP simple Chinese,
    run the fba.exe, then click the Help–about FB alpha as quick as possible, you will find the little LOGO has not dissappear and the AP will hang up.

    Hi all! Thanks for great work!
    I’ve been compiling FBA with mingw(gcc 4.1.2), and
    got many compile errors; now I’ve fixed them.
    Please contact me on this - I think enhancing portability is always a good thing

    I have been looking for an emulator that can play my NEO-GEO Roms - This newer version of Final Burn Alpha is a dream come true.

    Thank You.

  22. 22 MisterParadox

    Add macro support, please.

  24. 24 EL_NACHO

    First, thanks for continuing the FBA development. I love the speed of this emu.

    2nd, Kaspersky Antivirus 7.0 detected a keylogger in this build. Is that to be expected?

  25. 25 MisterParadox

    False Positive by Kaspersky Antivirus 7.0. AVG Free Edition 8.0 says it’s OK.

    Did you get it from this site ?? If you got it somewhere else, it might have been tampered with.

  26. 26 John

    I’m sure this problem has been brought up before. But, for some reason I cannot play Snk vs Capcom. Likewise, I am using the svcpcb edition which is approxomitley 90mb. Further, this game runs perfectly in my current edition of fba which is Any help will be greatly appreciated.

    Thank you everyone for your time.

    hey John, the problem may be the same as what happend with Samsho1, the last feature listed on this update is: Matched all sets to “MAME 0.124u1″ apparently this new 0.124 requires different rom files than all the old ones floating around… I had to find a generic 0.124 update pack that had the files I needed to include in my samsho1.zip.
    hope that helps!

  28. 28 John

    Thank you gHoul,

    That really helps a lot.

    Hi !

    Thank you for this great emulator, a must have !

    Just one little query : I’m using it exclusively on my Samsung Q1 UMPC but the screen resolution is only 800×480 and the UI is too big :’-(. I know there are many things in it but if you could reduice it a little bit that would be wonderful :-).
