    Hey there, guys! This is actually my first post on this forum, please don't get mad about it, would you? :) So, first things first, let me greet you! I'm belong to Russia as my homeland, so just bear that in mind when (possibly) a little misspelling/misunderstanding will occur. Name's Paul, 24 aged rocky-fella who likes PSP and anything relative to old arcade games. In fact, this kind of attraction brought me here and... err... never mind)
    Let's get started then. I've got all of MAME sources from mamedev.org, real practice for compiling them into single win-32 executable, and a little ("noobie" suits more in my case) pack of both knowledge and tools for making the same object for our-beloved-console. (Nintendo-boys, who asked you to talk?) :D
    Droping by several forums (ps2dev.org lying like dead one - that's really hurts me), i've met packs of MAME-builds in .PBP extension, but... none of them contains the games i'd like to mess with. For those, who wonders in kind of a games i'm talking about - take a look at this driver - http://mamedev.org/source/src/mame/drivers/multfish.c.html. As I can provide, this is a classical five-rows videoslot games, developed by "damn Russian" company 'Igrosoft' (Igra - means Game on russian) to pump out money from victim's pockets. I had no problems in compiling this for win32, but as for PSP... The truth is, i've never actually compile anything for it (him? her?). So there again, here goes my questions about how-to, answering which could be REALLY helpfull for me.
    #startif#
    1 - does MAME for psp requires any specific sources, that not have listed in mamedev's repository?
    #if 1 = yes then goto 2, else goto 3#
    2 - can I possibly obtain them somehow?
    3 - what tips'n'tricks should I know before start to organize whole .c & .h mess into single piece? Of course, regardless official readme's of any kind (still, i'm able to read something more difficult than hornbook).
    #endif#
    Whew... I've tired a little on writing this (don't forget, english is not my build-in language). So, I'm just looking forward for your answers, guys!
    P.S. Pssst! Feel free to express your hidden racism on me))) Nah, just kidding) :D
    Best regards!

    Well, thank you all for your invincible help. I've already figured things out by myself (it didn't take as much as been expected, though), so consider this thread dead. Shouldn't waste my time, either. Regard.

    MaxMouseDLL, this may sounds a little rude, but your behaviour in this case is pretty predictable for a man, who can't say anything regarding subject, but still quick to kick someone's ass with quite disgracefull flood. "Man good at nothing", I'd say.

    Good luck kicking his ass, dude.

    Seriously, Max, not much going on theses days(psp wise, anyway...) I pretty much just look for your posts now, for entertainment, at least.

    Bravo and do continue.
