How to compile WITHOUT the debugger part of it.

I know how to and can compile MAME without any issues.

I'd like to slime down build for myself, that doesn't include the debugger when launching mame with the "-d" command.

I thought compile with the "DEBUG=0 USE_QTDEBUG=0 " options would do the trick, but it doesn't. The debugger is still part of the build.

Any help would be grateful on what am I missing??

Re: How to compile WITHOUT the debugger part of it.

As far as I am aware, to do what you want to accomplish would be very difficult. Many internals are linked up to the debugger which has been part of the MAME normal build since version 0.126 and not simply a compile option.

Personally I don't see the value of erasing from the source such diagnostic tools to gain a potential 5-10% performance increase and lose cheats, LUA and many other essential to MAME function.

I wasnt looking to remove Cheats, and such, just the debugger part. But I see what yoru saying, it seems to be a major component of the build now. It didnt used to be! Thanks for the update.
