Version
-------

FBA SDL for GCW-Zero is based on FBA 0.2.97.35.

Romset is synchronized with MAME 0.159


How to use FB Alpha
-------------------

FBA SDL is now merged with the frontend based on Capex in one application. Just
run it, press START and choose Rom Show mode: all, available or non-available.
If needed, supplementary rom paths could be set.

FBA SDL could be used as a standalone application when invoked with
rom zip with full path as a parameter:

./fbasdl.dge ./roms/dino.zip

Full path and extension are obligatory.


Commandline interface
---------------------

FBA SDL can also be invoked with command line options. 
The options are as follows;

./fbasdl.dge <game> [<parameters>]

<game>                  - The game's romname with full path and extension.
--no-sound              - Just be silent
--sound-sdl             - Use SDL for sound (mutex syncro)
--sound-sdl-old         - Use SDL for sound
--sound-ao              - Use libao for sound
--samplerate=<Hz>       - Valid values are: 11025, 16000, 22050, 32000 and 44100
--sense=<value>         - Analog sensitivity: 0..100
--showfps               - Show frames per second while play
--vsync                 - Syncronize video refresh on 60Hz
--68kcore=<value>       - Choose Motorola 68000 emulation core.
                          0 - C68k, 1 - Musashi M68k, 2 - A68k

Example:

./fbasdl.dge ./roms/dino.zip --sound-sdl --samplerate=44100 --68kcore=0
