  1. Thanks to the forums I figured out the issue and I apologize for not including everything on how I was launching the game. The thread is here: I use Steam to open Launchbox/BigBox because I use Steam's mapping for my Dualshock 4. Apparently there is an issue when you try to open MAME via Launchbox which was opened by Steam, causing MAME to crash. There is a line in the mame.ini called joystickprovider, which by default is set to auto. It needs to be changed to xinput so it reads like this (these are currently lines 214-217 in my mame.ini: keyboardprovider auto mouseprovi
  2. Same directory as the executable. mame.ini mame64.exe The ini folder only has two subfolders inside: examples and presets.
  3. Interesting, it appears the Mame window is opening, going full to a black screen, and then closing. It does the same thing when I right click on the game and click on "Open MAMETI99..." If I go launch the mame64.exe directly in Windows Explorer, it opens up the mame menu. I'm running MAME v0.205. I also tried adding Arcade as a platform and testing it with tmnt arcade. I got it working in command line, but it won't load via Launchbox. So it's looking like I don't have MAME correctly set up in Launchbox?
  4. Running into the same issue. Below are screenshots of the modified settings. When I double click on the game in Launchbox, the Load Screen appears for 2-3 seconds, then it's a black screen for 2-3 seconds, then the Load Screen once more for another 2-3 seconds before it disappears and I'm back to the Launchbox program. I also tried increasing the Startup Load Delay for the emulator to about 10 seconds to see if that made any difference, but it did not.
  5. Hello, Lordmonkus recommended I post this here from the reddit thread in order to troubleshoot this further: I used to have a TI-99/4A system when I was growing up along with several cartridge games. Previously I used classic99 to run these, but found out that MESS and MAME worked with it as well. I've been getting emulators set up with Launchbox, but I'm having a tough time with this particular one. Eventually I'd like to get it working with Retroarch if possible, but for now I'm working with standalone MAME first. Mame64 location: W:\Arcade\mame64\mame64.exe
