I recently grabbed the complete 228 MAME romset (merged) and was surprised when I played TMNT (either of them) for the first time to see that it only supported 2 players. I didn't have this issue when I previously configured my Hyperspin-based setup a couple years ago. I'm pretty sure I have the normal (?) 4-player ROM for TMNT, as everything I've seen online seems to indicate the 2-player variant has "2p" in the filename, whereas my filename is tmnt.zip When I open the ZIP file I see a bunch of variants some of which have 2P in the title, and this is making me wonder if perhaps this is a problem with downloading the merged romset? I would be surprised that the main/default tmnt in the MAME romset wouldn't be the arcade original (i.e. 4 players).
Brand new to this! I just cleaned up a spare laptop and downloaded MAME along with LaunchBox. I downloaded a few games like Mortal Kombat and Killer Instinct (along with associated chd files) from the Internet Archive. The games work in MAME and show in Launchbox which is great. I'd like to download what I believe is called a "ROM set" where there are thousands of arcade games and not just download one at a time like I did. I've searched and read a lot, but I can't seem to find a place to actually download something like this. Can someoone point me in the right direction? I also hear things like merged vs. split, but again, I can't seem to find a download for one or the other. I'd like to download a large set and if I'm missing any games I want, then I can download individually and add them. HOw do I do that?
hi quick question for a noob i was watching a tutorial on naomi and noticed that the video advised not to get split or merged roms but that was for 0184. Which ones should I use for the latest build of MAME 0193 for use within launchbox? Any help would be appreciated Thanks
Hope someone can help on this one, but I suppose its not really a big issue (yet), just curious on how it is handled. I have a full "Goodsms" rom set. Each file is a 7z zip file, but each one of those can hold various roms. For example, Enduro racer has 4 files contained within it. The (J) , the good (!) and two others, (b1) and (T+Ba). If I right click on the game entry in launch box, I just get the option to play. Game then launches, using the setup in retroarch. Should I have the option to play any of these 4 roms? or it that something handled at the emulator stage? I vaguely remember trying something in snes9x and that asked me which ROM to use. I`ve since tried using only retroarch as the "go to" emulator at the moment
