Hey guys I was wondering if I could get some help. for reference I followed the set up from this video. link

Problem: Games wont load. Black screen then they return to the main menu. 

Set up: 
1: Mame is found in Lauchbox\emulators\Mame 
2: Mame is mapped to find roms in Launchbox\games\Arcade 
3: Launchbox is set up according to the link above 
- Problem I still get black screen. 

Trouble shooting: 
I tried a fresh install for Mame and its games following the steps in the video. Still no luck. 
I tried downloading several cores to run it through retroarch. This didnt help (tried using retro on its own without Launchbox) 


What am I missing? Thanks!

First question:

Do your games run directly in the emulator without using LB?

If no, there is your biggest issue.

If yes, then it is a LB setting issue. Check to make sure the name of your platform you imported the roms into is listed in the associated platforms tab for the emulator set-up in LB (the name of the platform must match the name you enter in the Associate Platforms tab).

Post a couple pics.

1. Edit your emulator in LB and post a pic of the Detail tab and the Associated platforms tab.

2. Edit a Mame game and post a pic of the launching page and the emulation page.
