Re: New to MAME

Ok, thanks for that. I'll have to take a further look. I seem to be a bit stuck on something. Likely, there's a very simple configuration involved that I'm overlooking. 1.) So there's multiple ways to organize .CHD files. -So far I've only played around with a few games requiring .CHD files. I unzip...

Re: New to MAME

Well, I meant to do an "edit" on my previous post to include this recommendation, but I guess I'm blind and couldn't find the edit button. I was thinking about the MAME FAQ, and perhaps this suggestion is mentioned else where but I couldn't find it with the search bar. -Maybe mention within the FAQ ...

Re: New to MAME

Now, even though I tend to steer clear of MAMEUI these days, mainly because of the bloating from all of the non-arcade stuff that's included now. mameppk_bin_gcc-0.119-20070914 - As Incito mentioned, that's the Kaillera build for playing MAME online with other people. I have a pretty much full ROM ...

Re: New to MAME

I'll have to read your responses when I get a minute. I've been wondering about the different emulation disclaimers that occasionally pop up when loading different MAME games. And I'm curious if any of you guys play titles with these specific emulation disclaimers (i'm assuming you do), AND if so, d...

Re: New to MAME

If you wish to keep your FAQ as simple as possible your explanation is perfectly adequate. It might be worth mentioning to people who decide to update their MAME version that they may encounter game errors which will require the addition of new files to their ROM sets. This can be accomplished by un...

Re: New to MAME

Since this morphed into a help topic anyway, I've moved it from 'The Lobby" to 'MAME Help' and changed the name from 'Hello' to 'New to MAME'. * * * * * OK, I'll try to fill in a couple of gaps here. Leaving ROMs zipped was the default for a very long time and is still a good baseline behaviour to ...

Re: New to MAME

Yep, I've read the FAQ, but I haven't slept well in over a month (insomnia). So learning & remembering everything I've read isn't working out so well for me lol. 1.) This is from your FAQ, but I'm not sure if It's still accurate information? "Now put the zipped rom files in MAME's roms folder. The r...

Re: New to MAME

The video is a little dated but the installation is the same. https://youtu.be/sMWSbsFvpWQ There are many tutorials that can be found on the Mame Addicts YouTube channel. I watched that video before I read this post. Hehe I see that you're using MAMEUIFX version 0.144 which is different build? than...

Re: New to MAME

Most sets from decent sites will tell you which version they are for... Yes, I've noticed that emuparadise will tell you what version of MAME the ROM is for (though, I'm not sure if that's the case with every ROM). Some people I've spoken to have told me that sometimes the ROMs will work even if th...

Re: New to MAME

I'd say jump right in, get a version of mame, get a matching r0m set, Google can help with that, and dive in... There are plenty of guides in the Mame help section to get you up and running... With regards to VPN's, they are not blacklisted per se, but if a node has been used to $p@m the board then...
