Re: how to skip the checks when game start

Just hold down Insert to speed past the bits you don't want. It speeds past the red or yellow warning screen too.

Re: MAME crashes while playing game

Has this been a problem for a long time? If so, I'd suggest logging a bug over at https://mametesters.org/

Have a look how other bugs come with supporting evidence, so that can see how to create your report.

Re: [0.220] Filters

I don't think any frontend does auditing of software. Perhaps that's something for the future.

Re: [0.218] Use image as background

It has to be in the same folder as MAME, the location is hard-coded.

The only difference with my setup is that my background has a jpg extension - so it's background.jpg

I use Windows though, so maybe it doesn't work on other OS's ? - don't know.

Re: Silly filenames in software roms

Thanks for this list, although it didn't say which software-list to look in. 2 of those had been noticed and fixed last week. I just fixed the spectrum and apple ones (thanks). I agree with the long filenames, they are ridiculous, but they fall within the 256-byte limit I set for these things, so I'...

You might be better off asking on the QMC2 forum. https://forums.bannister.org/ubbthreads ... =12&page=1

There's a patched QMC2 executable available to fix some problem that occurs with latest MAME.

I'd say that clrmamepro is correct and that your QMC2 is in error.

Re: mame -listsoftware

Re: Is Possible to disable some of the "Images" Buttons?

1. There's no option to disable certain image categories.

2. How's it going to know what roms are there without having to audit all of them? It doesn't keep a cache of found rom info.
