mame games won't load

Recommended Posts

Thanks I kind of thought the same that merged had all the files after reading on the mame site, I will do a search for that.  I did find a 208 set. It was called 208romsonlymerged, would the roms only mean it needs files?

No clue to be honest, the only sets I fully trust are the "official" ones from PleasureDome, those sets contain everything required.

merged sets come with the bios files as far as I know. If you want to find the latest up to date set every month then I would suggest doing a Google search for Pleasuredome.uk

Much appreciated. I am buying the beer for that leg up. Very helpful, some great stuff on the forums there as well.

Double check that Launchbox is pointing to the right location and make sure your mame.ini is located in the main Mame install folder beside the executable and not in the \ini sub folder.

And where can I find the mame.ini because I only see the folder? Sorry I'm fairly new at this.

It might be in your "mame install folder"\ini folder, it needs to be moved to the actual install folder where your Mame executable is located.

Okay open mame in the UI go to configure options then go save configuration it will create the file if it isn't in the root directory then go into the ini folder and  copy it into the root folder depending where it creates the file

It only has settings to change the buttons layout  and to exit mame. I'm thinking maybe the configs or something like that?
