  1. Version 0.246

    4,213 downloads

    NOTE: Going forward all NEW versions of the No-Nag will be posted in this download thread only, if you wish to get the new releases every month, either follow myself or the thread, As the download section will not show any new releases. **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. Contents: mame.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. (Note mame no longer carries the 64 in its exe name changed by Devs in 0.229) It's advisable to download the full mame 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.

  2. So I had mame running perfectly but then I used the Bezelproject installer (windows) to see what the hubbub about bezels was. Admittedly they are cool however, after running 1-2 games I am now get the error "mame unable to create the direct3d device (88760868)" after installing them? It doesn't matter if I launch them through Launchbox or independently either, I get the same result. I tried doing a fresh install of mame 0.240b through launchbox and from the actual installer from mamedev (the version I was running before hand) and the problem persists. All the info about this error seems to be 3-6 years old but I haven't sifted through enough old forums to figure out a solution yet so I figured I'd ask here. I've un-enabled the bezels through the bezelproject program and then uninstalled it (which still left some files in its install directory -_-) . I'm was still getting the error from all three installs of mame (so I deleted all three and tried one last time to do a fresh install which didn't work out). Any advice on how to save my arcade setup without nuking it and starting from scratch?
  3. Edit: (August 10, 2022) beta version 0.04. Fixed: Import clones as Additional Apps now works. Edit: (August 26, 2021) beta version 0.03. Now strips (regions) and (notes) from game Titles. Added notes [below] for downloading Metadata. Edit: (June 28, 2021) beta version 0.02. Now supported in LaunchBox Version 11.3 and up. This plugin will import “Custom” made MAME xml files. With this plugin, you can import games from a Custom xml file into any Platform (new or existing) and set the Emulator for the imported games to whatever you want, regardless of the Platforms default Emulator (if importing to an existing one). If you import them into a new Platform, the “Scrape As” for the Platform will be set to “Arcade”. The xml file MUST be laid out in a standard MAME Machines format. MAME’s softlist xml files are formatted differently and WILL NOT work with this plugin. (Use the other plugin) This only imports the games into LaunchBox giving them their 'proper' game Name/Title as per MAME. Use LaunchBox's built in Download Metadata and Media Wizard to get you game data, images and videos. You'll also need to setup any required Custom Command Line Parameters for your Emulators (i.e. DEmul - for Naomi needs "-run=naomi -rom= ") History Years ago I imported a personally ‘curated’ set of MAME roms into LB/BB. This left out a lot of games available in MAME Including clones and games (partially or otherwise) unplayable in MAME. Including Sega Model 2/3, and Naomi. I keep this “personally curated set” in my D:\LaunchBox\Games\Arcade folder. I have also keep a Full (non-merged) set updated on my backup drive. Thought being, keep the games available in LaunchBox, “inside” LaunchBox while maintaining my full set elsewhere. As time went on and my Cab and I ‘matured’, I discovered SuperModel and DEmul. Great! But I can’t even create Playlists because these games aren’t ‘pre-existing’ in LB. So now it’s just a matter of getting those roms from the full set into LB/BB. That’s where this plugin comes into play. Using the plugin Download and unblock the zip. Copy the folder inside the zip into your ../LaunchBox/Plugins folder. i.e. D:\LaunchBox\Plugins\ImportMAMExml\MAMExmlImporter.dll Start LaunchBox. Select Tools, MAME xml Importer beta 0.03 The process should be fairly intuitive by just going through the Import Wizard. Select the folder where your Custom xml files are located. Select an xml. Choose a Platform (new or existing). Select your Emulator. Filter the clones (Import: All, as additional apps, none). Select the roms’ source folder (if copying them). Select the roms’ destination folder (required to set the launch path for the games). Select Copy & Import or Import Only. Downloading Metadata Right click on the new Platform and select “Edit”. Make sure the Scrape As: is set to “Arcade” and then click “OK”. Click on one of the games, then press CTRL+A to select all games. Now click Tools and select Download Metadata and Media and follow the prompts. Be sure to check the box for: Search for game information and media from the LaunchBox Games Database (recommended). I recommend at this point to not download Media. [just to make sure all goes well with getting the metadata] Click on Select None when prompted (again if you have an EmuMovies account). Click Yes, download and replace all existing metadata and media. Then click Finish. Creating your own Custom xml I imagine there are many different ways to do this and even places to download them. Here’s 2 methods to create your own Custom xml. In MAME itself: You’ll need the “driver.ini” file which you can get from http://www.progettosnaps.net/renameset/. Click on “category.ini (0.22x)” to download. Inside the zip file, copy the “folders” folder into your D:\MAME\ini directory. D:\emulators\MAME\ini\folders\ You may need to add ;ini\folders to your “mame.ini”, “inipath” line. (?) # # CORE SEARCH PATH OPTIONS # homepath . rompath roms hashpath hash samplepath samples artpath artwork ctrlrpath ctrlr inipath ini;ini/folders Open MAME and click “Category” [on the left pane]. Now select “File <driver.ini>”. Under “Group” select the driver you want to sort by and then “Return to Previous Menu” You’ll now see only the games (56 in this case) for this particular driver. Now click the yellow floppy disk at top [“Export displayed list to a file”] and double click “Export list in XML format (like –listxml, but exclude devices)”. Your “Custom” xml will be saved to D:\emulators\MAME\ui\exported.xml. If you do more than one, they will be named “exported_0000.xml”, “exported_0001.xml” and so on. Tip: If you want to expand you sort filters, instead of “Category” select “Custom Filter” (selecting the File and Group as one of your filters). Using the Arcade Database website: http://adb.arcadeitalia.net/default.php Click “Machines” “Additional Filters” “Driver” tab Under “Source File”, type in the driver you want to filter by. Click Search. You’ll now be seeing just the games for that driver/source file. Now click “Options” and select “Export the results”. Give it a Title. Click “MAME (xml)” and click “Export”. Your file is now downloaded. Tip: Look through the other tabs for more filter options. I don't know if this is practical or even useful for anyone else. Or if there's already an easier way to do it. But it was fun to make AND it works. At least it does on my cab. If you decide to try it and have any thoughts, suggestion or whatever (good, bad or indifferent), ... leave a post letting me know.

  4. ===========Dreamstate's - 4K and 8K - Realistic Vertical MAME Overlays=========== These overlays are in 2160X3840 and 4000X7111 resolution. I'll be making these with a focus on the artwork and not the game play. There's already lots of overlays available If you like a large game screen with minimal artwork. It's very easy to add those others to an overlay zip file like this so I leave that to you. I use these as show pieces when I want to just watch the game go through it's attract mode and admire the cabinet art. I hit crop when it's time for game play. My goal is to create something that doesn't look like a photo. Rather, a window view of a real arcade cabinet. The lighting on these overlays will primarily be neutral so most people should not have an issue with them being too dark or too bright. I've completed some that are darker and I'll post them for those of you who prefer that but going forward they'll be neutrally illuminated. I also prefer accuracy when it comes to the dimensions and perspective of the artwork, and whenever possible, English instructions since I don't know how to read any other language but English. High levels of detail are a priority at this resolution as well. Overlays will be posted here occasionally and in non alphabetical order when I complete them. As you would expect, they take a long time to complete and I have lots of other artwork to make and round up just to have all the needed material to start one of these pieces. Thanks and credit to individuals who's work I have used in the completion of each overlay is in the text file found in each zip file. Huge thanks to: Joshua Axelrod, Gib Ranx, Frame, Raspbear, Etienne Macgyver, Paul Swan, Spinhacker, Orionsangel, Ken, Nightvoice, Mikonos, Arsinvictus, Papashine, Briball, MrRetrolust, Thoggo, Jibmums and many others for the contributions they've made to the community and inspiration they have given me.

  6. All, Lifetime license holder here. I am considering a ServoStik (https://www.ultimarc.com/servostik.html) which has 4-way to 8-way powered restrictor switching. It can be switched from 4-way to 8-way and back via software (command-line or GUI). I spoke to the guy (Andy) at Ultimarc who said the restrictor can be changed automatically depending on the game using certain front ends. I asked about Launchbox/Bigbox, but he wasn't familiar. Has anyone gotten this to work, and if so, how? As this post's title indicates, I'm using Bigbox to run MAME games, and I'd like to have the joystick's restrictor plate to automatically change to 4-way when playing games like Donkey Kong and Pac Man, and change to 8-way when playing Street Fighter, etc. Any and all assistance would be appreciated. Thanks, -Mike

    This is the first set of transparent control panels. More will be on the way. These have been downsized to 1200 pixels wide. Any help would be appreciated. If you have an arcade close by or heading to a show it would be great to snap some high-resolution pictures. PM me if you would like to help. This is years in the making, so I hope you like them.
  10. Hey everyone, over the last few days I've been trying to get various computer systems to work with mame and having games automatically loaded via autoboot command. With the help of @JoeViking245 and @kurzih I was able to get several the Acorn Electron roms to automatically boot when starting a rom via LaunchBox. You can accompish this either by using a command line or by editing the electron.ini in...system\mame\ini\ (if you use retroarch: Example: # # SCRIPTING OPTIONS autoboot_command "*cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*run !boot\n" autoboot_delay 2 autoboot_script Since I'm a total noob when it comes to figuring out working autoboot commands, I thought it would be great to have a thread where we can share and collect autoboot commands (or even scripts) for several computer systems when emulated with Mame. The idea is that anyone who has figured out how to autoboot roms for a particular system can post instructions here and I'm going to add them to the following chart: System Format Command line Mame Standalone Command line Mame RetroArch Aamber Pegasus cart "pegasus -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Aamber Pegasus\" -rom1 \"%romfile%\"" ABC 80 flop abc80 -skip_gameinfo -autoboot_delay "3" -autoboot_command "loadhiresinv\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\n\nrun\n" -flop1 every rom needs its own command line, because the file name has to be typed out to boot each individual game. The command line above is an example for booting the game "hiresinv.zip". Also, depending on your machine, you might need to add a couple of ” \n”. Acorn Electron cart "electron -exp romboxp -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Acorn Electron\" -cart1 \"%romfile%\"" cass electron -skip_gameinfo -autoboot_delay "2" -autoboot_command "*tape\nchain""""""\n" -cass "electron -exp plus3,bios=1 -autoboot_delay 2 -autoboot_command *tape\nchain\"\"\"\"\"\"\n -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Acorn Electron\" -cass \"%romfile%\"" flop (ADFS) electron -skip_gameinfo -autoboot_delay "2" -autoboot_command "*cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*run !boot\n" -flop "electron -exp plus3,bios=1 -autoboot_delay 2 -autoboot_command *cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*run!boot\n -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Acorn Electron\" -flop1 \"%romfile%\"" flop (DFS) = .ssd files electron -exp plus1 -cart1 seds -cart2 ap5 -skip_gameinfo -autoboot_command "*cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*exec !boot\n" -flop some games need *run instead of *exec "electron -exp plus1 -cart1 seds -cart2 ap5 -autoboot_delay 2 -autoboot_command *cat\n\n\n\n\n\n*exec!boot\n -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Acorn Electron\" -flop1 \"%romfile%\"" some games need *run instead of *exec rom "electron -exp plus2 -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Acorn Electron\" -rom1 \"%romfile%\"" Apple II Apple IIGS Flop (floppy games that need to boot from OS) apple2gs -skip_gameinfo -flop3 "PATH TO System 6.0.1 DISK IMAGE" -flop4 "apple2gs -flop3 sys601:flop1 -rp \"L:\LaunchBox\Games\Arcade\" -flop4 \"%romfile%\"" Software list roms must be in the correct folders for this to work.

  11. As I've been adding my MAME ROMs into my LaunchBox collection, I've noticed that EmuMovies has given me "Controller Info" images, most of which show a standard button panel with the various default button mappings labeled. I've attached one of those and also a lightgun example image as well. The main reason why I'm posting is: what do people actually do with these kinds of things? I know you can display overalys in MAME when in-game, but I'm not sure if there's really any easy way to display a particular game's controls. Ideally I'd like to be able to flash something up on screen for X number of seconds when that game is started, so you can easily tell what the controls are, or have a button or hotkey you can press to display the controls in a nice manner. Does anybody on here use these or other images / text to help the end-user with MAME controls?

    I designed some overlays for my 4K TV since I couldn't find any at that resolution at the quality I was looking for. I'm in the process of creating more systems in Photoshop, but the console themed designs take quite a while at 4K resolution. Many of these are inspired by the consoles design, so they aren’t 100% accurate to the source, they are just formatted to look nice as bezels/overlays. These overlays are designed to maximize screen real estate (IE no integer scaling), so there is no gap on the top and bottom of the screen. Use standard 4:3 aspect ratio or custom scaling. So, I won't be creating designs for consoles / handhelds that display primarily in 16:9, as doing that requires shrinking the game. I use the CRT_Geom shader with these settings changed and the screens are curved exactly where they need to be: CRT Geom Curvature Radius: 3.00 CRT Corner Size: 0.00 CRT Geom Sharpness: 3.00
  13. Hi everyone. I asked a similar question in the MAME forums a couple of weeks ago, but I haven't got any responses. I'm hoping someone here may have some advice. I'm seeing performance issues (slowness, audio stuttering) when enabling HLSL and bezels at the same time, but only at a specific resolution, or when hooked up to a TV instead of a monitor. My monitor's resolution is set to 2560x1440. If I enable HLSL, but bezels are off, I don't have any issues with any games that I've tried. Everything works well. Similarly, if I turn HLSL off and turn bezels on, I have no issues. The sweet spot seems to be setting my monitor to 1920x1080, then I can turn HLSL and bezels on and have no issues. I'm only having these issues when HLSL is enabled, bezels are turned on, and my monitor resolution is set to 2560x1440. My question is, is there some setting that I have wrong in my mame.ini file, perhaps in the OSD PER-WINDOW VIDEO OPTIONS section, that would allow this to also work when set to 2560x1440? It was my understanding that HLSL can put a lot of work on the graphics card, but like I said above, it handles it fine when bezels are off. I didn't think turning bezels on would affect the performance. Is it likely that bezels affect performance just enough to only matter at that specific higher resolution? I get that that wouldn't be unheard of, but I'd like someone who knows more about this stuff to confirm for sure. For some reason I feel like this is just a settings issue or conflict that I'm missing somewhere and can't figure out. I realize I don't need my monitor set to anything above 1920x1080, so I'm fine with this limitation. I'm just looking to better understand what's going on with the resolution/screen/view/layout settings, so that if I need to make adjustments to work with whatever display I'm using, I can do so effectively. Maybe it's a botched setting in an .ini or .lay file? Just recently, I tried hooking my PC up to a TV. I'm seeing performance issues there, even if my display settings in Windows is set to 1920x1080. Big Box runs smooth, but if I launch a MAME game and have HLSL on, things get sluggish. Refresh rate is set to 60. Is there something else I should be looking at or tweaking? This is a 4k TV, but like I said, I have the Windows display settings resolution set to 1920x1080. Does it seem weird that everything would work fine when hooked up to a 2k monitor with the resolution set to 1920x1080, but a 4k TV with the resolution set to 1920x1080 would cause issues? I'm trying to figure out if this is a settings issue or an issue of my PC or graphics card being under powered. Anyone have any ideas or thoughts? Help is much appreciated. Thanks for taking the time to read this lengthy post. My current specs are as follows: MAME 0.240 Monitor: 2560x1440, 144Hz Intel i5-4590 CPU 3.30GHz 16 GB RAM 256GB SSD Windows 10 Pro NVIDIA GeForce GT 1030 (low profile D4 2G)
  14. I've had an issue with LaunchBox showing the desktop and Big Box showing the menu screen for a second right after the startup screen but before MAME starts. I finally narrowed it down to my MAME HLSL setting being enabled. When HLSL is disabled I have no issue at all with LaunchBox or Big Box startups. Is there a workaround for this or am I missing an extra setting to add? I've played with the LaunchBox emulator specific startup load delay, aggressive startup window hiding, and hide all windows that are not in exclusive fullscreen mode with no luck. Any help would really be appreciated!

  22. Hi! When importing MAMe files, no playlists are created for me. No matter if I import ROM or Fullset for MAME. Fehtl me there still any file for Mame or what can it be. Launch v 12.11, Mame 0.232 and 0.237 tested. Ciao
  23. I've got LauchBox Premium. I've also got a 'Retro Achievements' which used to work in the past, as I've got 200 points or whatever (which may have been before installing Launch Box - can't remember). I tried playing a few NES games using NEStopia through LB, hit a few achievements, but I'm not seeing it in either RA or, subsequently, Launch Box. What am I doing wrong? Thanks in advance.

    Create Playlists from MAME category ini files for your Arcade Platform. This plugin allows you to generate Playlists in LaunchBox from .ini files. The same ones MAME uses in its UI to apply filters used to categorize viewing of your games. To be clear: This doesn't really expand much on the already available Arcade/MAME Playlist building feature in LaunchBox. But if there's a rare instance you come across a MAME category ini file that has a 'pre-built' "filter" list and isn't already available in LB, well here you go. Regardless, this was actually a just-for-fun, 'let's see if I can' type of thing. And figured I'd just put it out here for whatever reason. ..now on with the show.. Only games that actually exist in your Arcade Platform will be added to the created Playlist. So say you choose “Control.ini” and Select “Joystick 8-way”, there are 6827 roms listed with that ‘filter’. If your Arcade Platform only has 1007 of those 6827, only 1007 will be imported into the new Playlist. Many of these files can be found at www.progettosnaps.net. (Specifically here) And several more at https://mameinfo.mameworld.info/ (Look for the “MAMEUI 0.2xx Category-, Version and Alltime inifiles” link). There’s probably other sources available out there too. These files are typically (and should be) stored in the ../MAME/ini/folders/ folder. Requirements: This plugin file. Place it inside the ../LaunchBox/Plugins/ folder. Your MAME/Arcade Platform MUST be named “Arcade”. v3.0 A valid .ini file (or set of files) to read from. (see possible sources above) (sample from “Controls.ini”) [FOLDER_SETTINGS] RootFolderIcon mame SubFolderIcon folder [ROOT_FOLDER] [Dial] 2mindril 720 720g 720gr1 ..... [Joystick 8-way] 10yard 10yard85 10yardj 1941 ..... How to use: First download and unzip the file. Copy “Create Arcade Playlists.dll” to you LaunchBox/Plugins folder. Right click the file and select Properties. Check the box to “Unblock” (if present) then click OK. Now start LaunchBox. In LaunchBox, select “Tools”, then “Arcade Playlists from ini” (near the very bottom). [not to confused with "Create Missing Arcade/MAME Playlists.."] When the plugin loads, it will attempt to automatically locate your ../ini/folders/ location and populate the “Available ini files” section. If it wasn’t able to find it or you want to look in a different location, click “Browse” and navigate to the folder you want to use. Click on the ini file you want to use. This will populate the “Available sections/filters”. If there are no ‘[Sections]’ below “[ROOT_FOLDER]”, that means there are only rom names listed, and those will be added to the “List of roms to add” area. Click on one the “Available sections/filters” you want to use. This will add all the roms for that selection to the “List of roms to add” area. Select the Platform that has all your Arcade games. If it's called "Arcade", it will be selected automatically. (new v3.0) Click “Create Playlist” to create the playlist. Click Exit or create more. (new look v3.0) Once Exited, select Playlist or Platform Category and expand Arcade to see the new Playlist. Notes: This does not work with Additional Apps (mainly clones). This adds “Arcade” to the beginning of the selected section/filter for its “Unique Name:” (to maintain consistency). The “Nested Name” will be the same as selected section/filter. The Playlist will be added to the “Arcade (Category)” of the Platform Categories list. If you click Create Playlist and you don’t have any existing games that match, an empty Playlist will not be created. If a Playlist of the same name already exists, either delete your existing Playlist or edit it and change the name. It will not be overwritten nor modified.
  25. I was originally running Mame by itself through Launchbox and for some reason only half my games would work. So I decided to run it through retroarch since I was already running SNES, NES, Atari etc. The Mame games run perfectly in retroarch using the Mame 2010 core, but when I try to play a game from Launchbox it doesn’t do anything. I have the associated platform as Arcade and the correct core to match but nothing I try is working. Like I said NES SNES ATARI GAMECUBE N64 all work perfectly in Launchbox from Retroarch so I’m not sure why Mame isn’t.
