Hi, so after adding a new set of mame roms into launchbox I found nothing was launching, after randomly digging around I discovered the rom path in the mame.ini was not correct so fixed this up and everything launches ok, but I was surprised I needed to do this, I was assuming launchbox feeds the rom path to the exe when launching, my sample command for mame is;

mame64.exe -keyboardprovider dinput "FULL\PATH\TO\ROM\FILE"

Can I have this work dynamically without having to manually correct the path in the mame.ini if I want to add / change folders?

Launchbox does not physically pass the file, it simply tells mame the shortname to load and MAME locates the files and loads them.

Sounds like you added your new roms to a new location then you had to tell MAME where they were located or it wouldn't work. Unfortunately you will have to continue to do so if you don't add the new files to the same location
