Can't Get Launch Box to Work with MAME 0.193

Recommended Posts

Any time I try pressing a game on launchbox it says initializing and for some games it goes into machine loading up to about 50% then just closes. The tab just closes there is no error, I was previously having a problem where it said fatal error required files are missing the machine cannot be run. However, the problem has changed to not showing anything. The games also do not work on MAME itself. I've looked through different forums about the same question, but their solutions weren't working for me. I've tried editing the rom path on mame.ini. Thanks, for any help.

Those are not Arcade roms you have there, they are software lists roms for old computer systems and consoles. Mame needs specific commandlines for each system there to actually work, those are all old systems and not Arcade games at all.

So where am I supposed to get arcade roms from? A link would be helpful. I was watching a Youtube tutorial and he didn't provide a link he just said to search it up on internet archives so i wasn't sure if it was the right one. Also should I just delete all those files inside my rom file then if they're of no use. And sorry for not realizing that mb.

what should i search for to get the roms. And should I delete the other software list roms?

I found a rom set that says this "MAME 0.185 ROMs (split).zip" Is this the correct one?

Search pleasuredome roms in Google and then you are looking for the MAME 02.13 ROMs it comes in 3 flavors split merged or non-merged. Split is where all parents and clones are separate files. Merged is where all parents and clones are contained in the same file. Non-Merged which is the largest set has all parents and clones separate like split but all the clones also contain the parents thus making up the increased file. For example if a ROM has many clones then the clone rom archives will all contain that same parent. In two months 0.185 is going to be 30 versions behind so I would go to PD and just get the latest set to start off with.
