Description

Here is an update to the docs for MythGame?. "mythtv-HOWTO-15.html" This is a bit premature as some of the features are not yet finalized and adding this to the version displayed on the website would be confusing for people running version 18 as the new mythgame is only available through svn, but i thought i'd submit it just to get started.

Heres what i edited: I've added a line at the top to note that this is for xmame, but many other emulators can be setup in MythGame?. I removed the bit about symlinking xmame-##.display to xmame, figuring that if you want mythgame to launch different versions of xmame you would directly specify them. Added info on editing xmamerc to contain file paths. I made the capitlization of MythGame? consistant througout the page. Updated the Setup MythGame? section to reflect the new system and reworked the hints section.

I thought about adding a link to Jochen Kuehner's wiki that covers setting up a bunch of different emulators on MythGame?, but i haven't asked him and i'm not sure what the policy is for linking to other sites.

sorry about that, here is a diff against an updated myth-HOWTO.sgml file. I hope i did it right, i'm not sure how to check the formatting. like i said before i think committing this to the website's HOWTO is a bit premature as there are major differences between the stable version and the SVN version of MythGame?. -hary

Is the joystick portion of the instructions no longer relevant?

Summary: Updated MythGame DOcsUpdated MythGame Docs

in the SVN version of MythGame?, it is no longer relevant. in RPM release it is still relevant. What was happening was that in the previous incarnation of MythGame? xmame's options were hardcoded to use a joystick If you didn't have one setup it would fail to launch. This was a common enough gotcha to deserve hint status in the docs. The SVN version of MythGame? allows you to launch any emulator with whatever commands you like avoiding the whole Joystick missing gotcha all together problem with xmame.
