I'm a bit confused. I keep hearing people say that Mame-X is one of the best Xbox emulators, but I don't know which one that is.
Is Mame-X: MameoX or Mame X?
If you're not sure, which one is generally considered better (or are they both so awesome that it doesn't matter)?

MameoX - has Mame .70 core, a pretty decent start on lightgun support. (Don't have a lightgun to test yet, something that will be remedied shortly). Sometimes has crackling sound (can be made to go away if you pause the game). Has what I think is a kickass UI that is only going to improve. No need to toggle between neogeo / cps games and 'regular' games. Freezes up less (kicks you back out to the rom list instead of freezing up.
MameX - some say it plays neogeo roms better, I'm not so sure in this latest release, I can't really tell the difference. But then again, some people here are real neogeo fanatics. (With good reason, they're great games.) I think that this release has the Mame .61 core in it, which supports less games than .70 obviously.
Right now I think it's a real toss up between the two from a _functionality_ standpoint, but I am personally much more fond of MameoX. It's also getting updates almost weekly, and is very active in development.
Give both a try.

mameox is the new champ no contest better interface ,play more games imo
The only question remaining is whether MAME-X still holds an advantage over MAMEoX in terms of framerate.
Does anyone here know whether there's a significant difference when comparing the 70.3b build?
