1. Before posting in MAME Help please check the MAME FAQs to see if your question has already been answered there.
2. If MAME FAQs doesn't help then try using the Search function to see if your problem has already been covered in the forums.
3. Finally, if all else fails then feel free to post here in MAME Help. Generally speaking, when posting in MAME Help it is important to add as much information as possible regarding your OS (Operating System - XP, Vista, etc.), your System Specs (Processor, GHz, RAM, etc.), and your version of MAME and where you got it from (eg. MAME32b.109 from MameAddicts Downloads). Narrowing down these variables can often help make it easier for us to help you.
4. 2015 Update:
MESS is now integral part of MAME and will be distributed as such.
MESS will NOT be regarded as an integral part of the 'MAME Help' forum here at MAME Addicts. Any MESS-related topics posted in 'MAME Help' will get dumped into the 'Other Emulators' forum instead.
Important! Also, please be aware of the few simple Site Rules we have here if you don't want to a) get your topic locked or deleted, or b) get yourself warned or banned.
