  1. MAME 0.224 No-Nag View File There was no real change to last months codebase for Warnings. This could be the last No-Nag i release as the Mame devs maybe adding a softer option for game warnings, some code was added in the previous release but was rolled back just before release, notes were added in mame 0.223 as to what may be acceptable in future builds, the following are the notes as posted. As this may or may not appear in the next release i will wait until then to make a decision on future versions. -Revert "ui: allow to skip warning popup at start" [Vas Crabb] * This reverts commit 74f456df945cd1720dc4d6bc105f64c13e62ced8. * I will allow the feature with the following conditions: - No skipping red warnings. - A key-value map of device shortnames and yellow warnings must be stored in the .cfg file, along with a timestamp of the last time the system was run and the last time a warning was shown. - On starting a system, the map of device shortnames and yellow warnings must be built and compared to the one loaded from the .cfg file. If it doesn't match, if the system hasn't been started in seven days, or a yellow warning hasn't been shown in 14 days, the warning is not to be skipped. There is an added option in the TAB menu in game to see any Warnings that have been suppressed on loading a game, showing if the rom has any known issues, please use this option to check the game/rom before using any online forums for help with the game/rom in question NOTE: This does NOT interfere with the Leaderboards at all. **This removes the nag screen that informs you if a rom doesn't work correctly, or if at all, if you use this no nag, then please do NOT go to the mame support site with issues with games, please only use if you understand that there will be no help from anyone at mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame. mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.224 Its recommended to download the full 0.224 official pack and install it, then just overwrite the exe with the replacement, this covers any changes the mame devs may have made to the support files. After you have done this, make sure you copy the folders artwork, ctrlr, cheat, hlsl, ini, folders and the mame.ini file from your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install. For those of you on old installs make sure in the mame.ini file you have the following set. Skip_gameinfo 1 Submitter MadK9 Submitted 08/27/2020 Category Third-party Apps and Plugins

  5. They are just symbolic links, like shortcuts, just an easy way to link a folder without having multiples of the same folders, or moving folder structures that can break other things.
  6. Beta 4 now runs for me whereas 3 wouldn't run at all, nothing changed in the setup from previously trying. Also RL is fixed to a point where i see a symbolic link being used for the data folder, but i had to add an Images folder symbolic as well, as RL uses LB's image folder to gather images that are displayed on fades. I know there are some that use the video folder too in their fades. But in all from the very limited testing i did, beta 4 seems to fix the issues i was having, can't comment on other stuff until i test some more.
  7. i also ran in to difficulties with the new beta's. Rocketlauncher seems to be messed up, trys to load the xml file from core/data ??, i also couldn't get Beta 3 to even load, just did nothing, yet Beta 2 did at least load for me, rolled back to beta 2 and again it loaded. So not sure why Beta 3 wouldn't even load. No logs im afraid i rolled back to stable for the time being.
  8. Check the ini folder for another mame.ini if you find one in there just move it to a safe spot, and lastly just make sure you have 'Skip_gameinfo 1' set in the mame.ini, if you can't find it in the ini file that means its set already as the default is 1, so don't add the line if it does not exist, its more ofr people that still use older mame.ini files where it used to be set to 0. Thats all there is to it, i rechecked my local version and can confirm there is no issue with it.

  11. Pretty sure skip_validitychecks was removed from mame a long time ago. Also you can't skip the screens when loading a rom, you need to use a NoNag mame for that. Also skip_disclaimer is not an option either.
  12. Yep that would do it, roms change and evolve a lot in mame each month, so using the current mame with a 3 year old rom set will have a lot of issues. Mame's exe keeps its own db and has games marked as working/nonworking, and using a set that old you could be seeing games marked as working in the ui, but the games may not have be working that far back, so that set has damaged roms/files that the new mame is checking against and ofc can't find the files it expects.
  13. Are you using the correct mame version for that set as using the incorrect mame version for the rom set you have will cause issues. Also as im sure you are aware, that set is like 3 years old now, lots of changes and advancements have been made in mame since that release. and just search for mame 0.221 roms, i hear the archive site is pretty good
  14. I tend to agree with Neil here, i would like to see in LB just a versioning number for the current mame metadata version would be really nice, but i think there are far more important additions than this tbh. Even though i do the no nags for mame each month, contrary to that my setup is still 0.205. Reading the patch notes each month tells you what new games/clones are added, and you can add them yourself quicker than the team here can update the data, its not hard to find the metadata, http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/ is one site that covers each rom with all the information you will ever need.
