Unofficial Stern SAM enabled compile based on Visual PinMAME

Same as official VPinMAME except

1. also supports full color DMD patches for S.A.M. game code that require side channel loading to use extended memory

2. also supports full clones that have unique configurations in DOFConfigtool - blkou_hf, ratfink, missworld, penthouse

Instructions for use:

Install official Visual PinMAME


Overwrite VPinMAME.dll with the SAMbuild version.

Run Setup.exe again and press the 'Install' button.

In order for any user customized game code mods to load and run whether the mod adds full color DMD or a soundtrack remix, the game setting for the replacement game code set must have 'Ignore ROM CRC errors' enabled. 

PinMAME executable included for rom testing and auditing. 

Compiled with VC2015


PLAYERS NOTE (for 2.8 or greater):

To align with official VPinMAME set naming from driver.c, the following were renamed:

Iron Man & Iron Man Vault Edition im2 -> im
X-Men xmen -> xmn
The Avengers avg -> avs

This will also require renaming the rom in VP table scripts


For stable release based on official 2.7 go here and then click "See Changelog" button and select June 30 v2.34.
