How to update MAME version?

Recommended Posts

So, presently I am using MAME64 v. 191. I saw that 193 just came out over the holidays and I wanted to move to the newest version of the emulator, but at the same time I want to keep all the configurations I have done to my version of MAME. I also like my current UI okay, but can't seem to find the same UI for 193.  Can anybody help? Just to clarify, I included a screenshot showing how my current UI is for MAME, in case it has a special name I am not aware of (From my understanding MAMEUI64 is different).

You're using baseline MAME from mamedev.org AFAICT. All you need to do is download the latest release (mame0193b_64bit.exe ) and extract it to the root of your mame folder overwriting all.

No, because those custom files don't exist with a new install. The only files that could be over written are ones that both exist already and are a part of the new install so all your configs will be fine because those are all generated after installing.

As always make a backup of your current working Mame folder just in case something does go horribly wrong.

Cool, thanks for the help! I just updated to the latest version.  It was pretty simple, I just wanted to make sure I wasn't doing anything that would mess up my custom setup I have going.

Just out of curiosity, which version of MAME data files in launchbox using to scan for media, metadata, etc?  On an old thread I saw it was .174 - just wondering if its been updated in the last year or so.

Still 0.174 but it was on the poll so it should be getting revamped soonish
