Is it possible to move the MAME bios files to a separate folder?

Hi all,

Just a quickie... I have the MAME Bios files but (ideally) would like to put them in a separate folder out of the normal MAME emulator and Roms folder. I can't find a directory setting in MAME for 'bios' files and I can't see in the .ini where it could be changed?

Can anyone confirm if you can do this or not?

Thanks ?

Yes, just make sure you add that path to the mame.ini file.

 

here's mine as an example.

rompath                   "roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms;..\..\Roms\Arcade\Arcade Roms Bios;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Atari\Atari 5200;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Misc\ColecoVision;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo AES;..\..\Roms\Consoles\SNK\SNK Neo Geo CD;..\..\Roms\Consoles\Sega\Sega Saturn;..\..\Roms\Arcade\All Killer No Filler;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System III;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System II;..\Roms\Arcade\Capcom Play System;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Atari Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Capcom Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Data East Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Irem Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Konami Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Midway Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Namco System 22;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Nintendo Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Sega ST-V;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\SNK Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Taito Classics;..\..\Roms\Arcade Classics\Williams Classics;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Nintendo Game & Watch;..\..\Roms\Handhelds\Tiger Handheld Electronics"
