  1. MAME 0.222 No Nag View File 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 mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame. mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.222 Its recommended to download the full 0.222 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.

  3. 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.
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. 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.

  9. The issue at hand is the 3rd party version of mame you are using, the author changed the default path for mame.ini, using the proper mame exe will solve any further issues you may have, using a 3rd party version can carry risks of stuff not working correctly. And as LB uses proper mame as its default, then the issues you have fall at the mameui devs fault. The team here cant fix every issue that xxx emulator may have.
  10. Yes, just make sure you add that path to the mame.ini file. here's mine as an example. rompath "roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms Bios;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Atari\Atari 5200;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Misc\ColecoVision;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo AES;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo CD;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Sega\Sega Saturn;..\..\Roms\Arcade\All Killer No Filler;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System III;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System II;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Atari Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Capcom Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Data East Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Irem Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Konami Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Midway Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco System 22;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Nintendo Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega ST-V;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\SNK Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Taito Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Williams Classics;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Nintendo Game & Watch;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Tiger Handheld Electronics"

  12. I have to ask why you are Zipping CHD files? CHD files are already compressed to an equivalent compression ratio of Maximum within 7z. So compressing can actually make the files larger than a standard CHD file. Also just in case people are unsure, Mame 0.221 does not exist as of yet. Just adding this image, the same chd compressed in 7zip at Maximum compression, is 1k larger than the chd itself, i know that size is not even worth bothering with, but its just a time waste imho for no gain other than adding an unpack step where there doesn't need to be one. I guess getting them from other sources means they are 7z already which i find a little strange, so yeah the script can help a few people get to grips with it via a script, or just highlight all your 7zipped chds and bulk extract to mame folder using the context menu.
  13. From what i remember its pretty normal for LB to hang around in task manager after closing as it writes the xml's on exit, once its done that task it closes fully, so if you have it on a slower drive it will be more noticable. I had that message the other day, after trying to run LB too quick again after closing it.
