It sort of a matter of details and security.

Add some details to what you are doing in the thread and how you need help. Adding details might make others feel a little more comfortable and maybe have some trust.

Ok the details are i made a completely setup file of mame0.139 the newest version compacting it into a rar file and uploading it to a file transfer site, i want someone to download it and unzip it and see if mame runs for them right away. since i dont know anything about the different control panels for mame i dont have any of that in there it has a basic menu i guess you would say. if it works then people can easily get mame right away and would only have to find and download the games themselves.

How is that any different from what they already have to do? What makes your mame download link better than others? If you've included any bios files or anything then that's illegal so... LoL I'll just wait to see what you've got to say Chris.

Tazuto, I appreciate you enthusiasm but you have much to learn before you can create a download package that well be used here. There is so much to consider when creating a package like this.

Most of my downloads come from the creators websites themselves.

Also, Nos here has been a member who has contributed time and again to MA. His knowledge is really good. It would benefit you to be willing to take criticism from those of us who have been around mame years before you have.

I am going to lock this post now cause I want my forum to have helpful conversations. One of my rules is members have to treat each other with respect. Break the rules and I will have to ban.
