Everything working except Arcade games

Recommended Posts

If you are going to get a full set from PD I would recommend waiting til later this week, it's the last Wednesday of the month and the monthly Mame update will be out.

Ok, I have to wait a bit anyway.  I registered at PD but I have to wait for full access.  Meanwhile I can only download from the FREE area which contains only the 0.202 roms.   I found a rom set on my other hard drive called MAME.Roms.0.201.Split.Set.  Should I try these?

To import a different Arcade set should I delete the Arcade Platform and then import the new set, or is there a better way of  removing all of the current games, images etc.?

Thanks again for all of your help.  The frustration is slowly subsiding.  😀

Yes, remove all the games from the platform and re import using the Mame full set importer if you are using a full rom set.

Thanks, I'll delete the Arcade Platform and re-import the MAME.Roms.0.201.Split.Set.  and see if that set works better.

GREAT!  Imported a different set of roms and all seems to be ok now.  Out of the 30 games that I tested so far, only one would not run.  It gave me the missing files window but that's fine.  As long as the majority of the games that I want to play are running, I'm happy!  🤣

Many, many thanks to everyone who offered help and hung in there with me despite my Noobness.

A great bunch of guys!!!
