    How do i mass Import these Tables to Launchbox?

    When i click Import and select the files yo have uploaded then it also imports all the scripts and fonts which are in the files with the Tables.

    Is there an easy way of importing all the Tables at once and ONLY the Tables?

     

    Thanks

    There shouldn't be any other files in the Tables folder except the *.fpt files.

  2. Small addition for you guys, not much but it fills a hole for the time being, i also made up some 3D boxes using the Flyers, I may post them at at a later date.

     

    Also as a suggestion @Haggie55 delete the fml.bak files that will shrink the overall download by around 6-7gig as they are not needed. But i do appreciate the upload none the less.

    mame64.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.228

    You are required to download the full 0.228 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 ini files from the root of your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install.  

    make sure in the mame.ini file you have  the following set.

  4. Mame 0.227 No-Nag

    View File

    New Year, new release.

     

    This release is not a simple drop into Mame, you will have to use a full mame 0.227 setup from mamedev.org, this is due to changes that have been made since 0.226. Once you have that installed just drop this version on to it and overwrite.

    If you already have a Mame install that's not 0.227 i suggest renaming your current folder and make a new one, install 0.227 and the no-nag, then from your original Mame copy the folders artwork/cfg/ctrl/hi/ini/nvram/roms and any ini files from the root folder (mame.ini/plugin.ini/ui.ini). And overwrite when asked too.

  5. @ModerateNOOBI played around with this a little for you, Check in LB that game has the correct LB ID image.thumb.png.a1053d7d9e9d8dbe67986d220763310f.pngIf the ID number you have does not match, then click the red X to remove it, then make sure the title matches mine above, i had an issue right at the start i was missing the : and the LB database couldn't find the game, so i changed the title to just 10 Pin and then searched for it, it came back wth the correct title, and i added the media with no issue.

  6. As of 30th September MAME has introduced the soft no-nag, so going forward, i will no longer release no-nags, as the soft version they have implemented is in my eyes a good compromise going forward. That being said i'm sure others will still want to remove the no-nag completely, and as such i suggest looking for MKChamp's diff files and compile your own version, or wait for someone else to release their version.

    -frontend: Added option to skip repeated imperfect emulation warnings. [Vas Crabb]
    * The option is called skip_warnings, and it must be set in ui.ini (it can be set using the internal UI). Red warnings cannot be
    skipped; yellow warning can be skipped under certain circumstances.
    * For a yellow warning to be skipped, the system must have been launched in a way that allows warnings to be displayed, in a
    configuration with the same set of devices flagged with unemulated/imperfect features, within the last seven days, and the
    warning must have been displayed within the past 14 days.

    Thank to all who have download the no-nags in the past.

  7. 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

    Should the Core folder look like this?

    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.

  10. 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.

  11. 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.

    I am not using the same version of mame, I am using the latest (v.221). 

    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.

  14. 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 :)

  15. 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.

  17. 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.
