Mame Hooker 2.0 Released! (And an Apology) 
Monday, July 30, 2007, 12:33 AM - Mame Hooker
Mame Hooker 2.0 is out!

Major updates include but are not limited to:

Command-line/DDE support, which means that developers of front ends and emulators can interact with mamehooker directly via dde interface and users can send commands to an already running mamehooker by simply launching it again with command line options.

Fixed various bugs with the new display system.

Added a more advanced force-feedback command, and a launch and wait command.

Also mamehookerstart and mamehookerstop have been added.

The source code won't be up for a while as it needs cleaning.

It's in the interop section to the right, grab it now!

On a side note, it has been a while since the new site has been up and although I promised some big releases this summer, I haven't exactly made good with that promise. Unfortunately the real world often takes away from my programming time and summer has gotten away from me. Big releases are still on the way, just be patient. I promise, it should be worth the wait.

Visual Pinball Wrapper 5.1!

This is mostly a bug-fix release as it fixes some focus issues others complained about. I also added the feature of skipping the rom selection screen on tables that allow you to select the rom.

Regarding Downloads (Part 2)

The issue appears to be resolved. It was a very localized event only affecting people using winrar. If you had trouble downloading files in the Misc Utilities section, try again, as they should be fixed now. Again, if you find any problems please leave a comment or contact me.

Visual Pinball Wrapper 5.0! 
Saturday, June 30, 2007, 06:25 PM - Wrappers
This one has been a long time coming. The 5th version of the pinball wrapper adds better dual screen functionality, the ability to add backglass-based artwork files on your secondary screen, and improved general functionality. Per request, the warning screen can now be edited. Go to the wrapper download section or use the link below.

Happy Pin-Mameing!

Some people are complaining about corrupted downloads on the site. I can assure everyone that the files themselves are fine, but there could be something going on in the transfer process. If you have trouble with a file, please respond to this post with the name of the file and your byoac name so I can get in contact with you if need be. Please be patient, we can get this worked out eventually.
