(MAME) Add Breakout to Launchbox

Recommended Posts

Hey! I was wondering how to add Breakout to Launchbox. This game does not have any rom files associated with it (that I downloaded) weirdly enough and as such I cannot find out how to add it to Launchbox.

It is in the MAME fullset.

I see its a paddle game, did you exclude paddle games at all? I cant remember if there is a filter for that or not. The rom is just called breakout, so should be easy to find in your romset.

There isn't a ROM its a TTL game.

OK, your gonna have to explain to me what a TTL game is then, cause in Launchbox it says its breakout.zip. :)

This TTL game is internal to MAME so there is no breakout.zip, unless the import process maybe creates a dummy one.
The MAME command line for it is just mame64.exe breakout
You can launch it through LaunchBox by making a dummy zip, or else, like I do, by pointing LaunchBox to just breakout.

Thanks! This is exactly what I was looking for. The fullset option wouldn't have worked for me since I only import games as I find ones that strike my fancy, I don't do bulk game adding or anything.

@neil9000TTL stands for Transitor to Transitor Logic it basically is for older games before they used microprocessors much like what the emulator Dice does some of these are built into MAME but they don't come with a zip file in the ROM set I'm pretty sure that Breakout isn't the only one but I'm unsure on what other TTL games are available in MAME
