How to contact developer: Driver:interpro

Wed Oct 23, 2019 7:03 pm

Hello, all. I have used mess/mame before many years ago, working with the Apollo Domain workstation emulation. Now I am playing with the Intergraph Clipper Interpro workstation (Driver:Interpro). I have managed to get the roms and I already had the software, and have gotten it up and running.

I have come across some likely bugs, and also have some questions (e.g., how to tell it I want to use its Ethernet), but am struggling to find the right place to post and get information on this.

Current status is a message in error.log: "[:eth] Network interface -1 not found", but I can't find any information on how to configure it.

Pointers/redirections appreciated.

Most development of the interpro driver have been done by Patrick Mackinlay. (https://github.com/pmackinlay)
Unfortunately, the computers emulated in that driver are marked as MACHINE_NOT_WORKING.

In the driver source code there are lots of FIXME comments.

In the Mamedev wiki you got some interesting info about the InterPro driver in Mame:
https://wiki.mamedev.org/index.php/Driver:InterPro

Hence, i guess it´s not worth to create a mametesters bug report, but it may be worthwhile to post an issue in the GitHub tracker that may help Patrick to fix any bug you've found:
https://github.com/mamedev/mame/issues

Good luck!

You can contact the developer on mame's IRC channel.
