Hi guys, I'm trying to use mame to load odyssey2 games.
Emulator is set as MESS
Assosiated platforms: magnavox odyssey2
Default command: odyssey2 -cart
I have odyssey2.zip in mame rom folder.
Odyssey2 games are .bin
After importing Roms when I launch a game it trys to load and then a black screen then back to launchbox menu.  Is there something I'm missing.  Can someone help me out.  Thanks.

Try using just "odyssey2".  Or if you must, "odyssey2 -cart1".

You also need "i8244.zip" (device file) and "videopac.zip" (parent rom)

For MAME (and even [old school] MESS), the files need to be zipped.

For example: "A Labyrinth Game / Supermind (Europe)", MAME is looking for "2lbsprmd.zip".

Also, make sure Extract ROM archive before running is NOT checked.
