Is there a way to see which database version is being used on launchbox? Also how often are MAME databases updated here?

Thanks

At the moment no you can't see the version, how often? not sure I assume every month? to see if the database is updated check the modified date of the MAME.xml file in the following location \LaunchBox\Metadata\MAME.xml has changed and that should give you a rough idea of the version they are using.

The below threads might interest you I suggested a tool for users to be able to import the latest database based on the mame.exe.

Unfortunately, looking at the date of MAME.xml file will not tell you anything about when the MAME metadata was last updated. We do our best to update the MAME metadata every month, shortly after new MAME releases.
