MAME Roms not Loading


Recommended Posts

I am having a strange problem with MAME. Whenever I try to launch a rom through Launchbox MAME opens up and tries to load the rom but then gives me the dialogue box stating that it can't find such and such rom. I know the roms are there, because the folder has been scanned into launchbox and everything was added. Plus, if I open up MAME and load the roms without Launchbox they load just fine. I am using MAMEUI64. Could that be the problem?

For some reason with MAMEUI and LB it doesn't pull any settings from the ini folder. I don't think that anyone has figured out why this is we just have seen the issue so many times we know what you need to do to fix it. So basically when your ini file is in the ini folder MAME can't read your ROM path when launched through LB.

Yeah, this is a weird one because it's something that changed in MameUI at some point but not sure when. I have used an older version (154 i think it was) and it was perfectly fine without moving the mame.ini file. I have long since switched to the command line version and manually generate my mame.ini file in the main folder where the executable is located.
