Re: Light gun configuration

I have my mouse working just fine for light gun control but I only have 1 mouse. I have a gamepad which I was able to set up to move the target cursor but the second player still shoots to the top left. I forgot how to configure gun targeting. Is there a configuration option?

Re: Light gun configuration

Nevermind, I figured it out. I go to configure options, not configure machine.

Light gun configuration

Is there a way to configure the light gun for all machines instead of each individual machine?

analog control issues

What do I do about analog controls? For example I am trying to play "Arkanoid" but the controls are something called "analog" controls. I don't know how to set them. MAME does automatically set them to my joypad if it is plugged in but the game doesn't allow me to move around smo...

moved to new computer, Now rom's don't work

I recently switched to a new computer, I moved all my games to that new computer, but now the mame games don't seem to work. I usually use Launch-Box to play arcade games but when I click on the game it first tries to "initialize" but then closes. I tried using the M.A.M.E. application pro...

Re: What is "IO read test?"

Hitting f2 didn't work, also I think I may have changed the command you are referring to because f2 doesn't activate service for me. Since I figured I must have changed it I deleted the "default.cfg" file to change it back but that ended up fixing it anyways so problem solved. Thank you gu...

What is "IO read test?"

I was playing "Contra" and then I hit "Shift F3" because that was the key combination I use in Snes9x to save to state 3 but in MAME that does a "machine reset." Now every time I try to open the game I get some kind of screen that says "IO read test" and nothi...

Invalid header

I updated MAME by downloading "mame0224b_64bit.exe" from https://www.mamedev.org/release.php and moving all the files in the folder to my folder with my past MAME and now my save states say "unable to load state due to invalid header" do I just need to move the save states to ano...

How do you delete save states?

I have been playing games using M.A.M.E. with my 6 year old nephew and he LOVES them. While I like that you can save a game state under any key unfortunately when I try to save a game, for example at the beginning of a level, he in excitement is usually pressing keys on the game pad saving a game un...

Re: How do you update M.A.M.E.

Alright I think I get it. I wanted to update M.A.M.E. but when the instructions said something that made me think I had to download one of those files that contained thousands of roms at a size of I think around 60 gigabytes. Since I already downloaded something like that when I first downloaded M.A...

Re: How do you update M.A.M.E.

Do you have a video link to "how to uncompress a binary package" or is it just copy over a file. Also because I emulate lots of different plateforms my roms are in a program called LaunchBox and that program just uses M.A.M.E. to emulate the program. Doesn't M.A.M.E. emulate the roms not t...

How do you update M.A.M.E.

How do you update M.A.M.E? I saw a youtube video and it seems to claim that you need to update a rom package as well as the emulator together. I just want the emulator and the option to choose which roms I have. The rom packs seem rather large and full of a lot of games I am not interested in, at le...
