We will need more info than that to troubleshoot, "nothing works" isnt to descriptive, especially as you mention two completely different systems with there own specific importers. What exactly happens when you try to launch games? Do your MAME games work just using MAME without Launchbox?

Well if all your details are correct it would work. Is your steam profile set to public, as it needs to be?

As for MAME, what romset do you have and how are you importing, using the fullset importer or the standard rom importer?

Are you using the correct steam profile name, or are you putting in your username or account id?

i think that is part of the problem with my steam profile, the tutorial says under profile in the adress bar it should say id but instead im getting this (https://steamcommunity.com/profiles/76561198199424291/)

in steam click your profile and then edit profile, you can add your name instead of a number.
