New to MAME, need some help.

Thu Feb 09, 2017 1:21 am

Hey guys, I'm new here. I'm using the latest version of MAME on Windows 10 64bit.

So I went and obtained (ROM SITE EDITED) some roms. However, when I audit or try to, it freezes. Maybe I'm doing something wrong.

The roms that I guess comes with it, some work and some don't. It has a looong list of roms that is there but not all work.

Anyway I can get MAME to scan for roms and play them?

Thanks in advance.

If you're using baseline MAME that you can obtain from the Downloads on this site then it's very simple to have the game listing only show what you have locally.

It's as simple as opening mame64.exe and left clicking on Available which will then change the game listing to only selections that you have locally in the roms folder.

If you're using a derivative build of MAME such as MAMEUI, Sorry, I'm unable to assist with that since I don't use it.

If you're using MAMEUI or some similar derivative, firstly press F5 so it can find out what sets you have (takes a long time), then click on Available in the left panel.
