Silly filenames in software roms

MAME 0.218 I've noticed a few software rom filenames that have been giving me a little grief, doing various things. Non ASCII - there are only 22, 7 of them are just European accents, the other 15 look like incorrect encoding. Long - I'm classing long as > 180, only 5 of them with one being 228. For...

Re: Load state path not expanding environment variables

BTW Using: -state_directory %APPDATA%\MAME\sta Does work, but this is because cmd is expanding the environment variable, you can tell by looking at task manager. Suppose I can workaround the problem by having a bat to launch MAME with all 7 output directories passed as parameters but its a bit messy...

Re: Load state path not expanding environment variables

Thanks for having a look. Sorry should have mentioned I'm not using a front end. That's just the path to a default MAME. Anyway forget about that I still have the problem with a simplified test (all from local drive) : - Extract fresh MAME binaries C:\mame0217b_64bit\ - Start MAME Configure Options ...

Load state path not expanding environment variables

Mame 0.217 Windows I’ve been experimenting with running the MAME application from a read only network share, its working pretty well but… It doesn’t seem to look in the right place when loading state. I configured the INI like so: state_directory %APPDATA%\MAME\sta When I save everything is sound. W...

Duplicate Machine Disk (CHD) and romof, merge

I was messing around with some code to export and validate machine disks. There are 787 unique machine disks (0.217). I wanted to see if I can work from a disk set that included no duplicates. It would appear that MAME requires some disks to be duplicated. Here is an example. Parent: "area51" Childr...

MAME database web site

Dear Forum I have built a quick and easy web for searching machines and software lists with details, also lists CHDs. https://mame.spludlow.co.uk/ No downloads obviously. You can search machines on ROM SHA1 for identifying boards, main reason I built it. Automatically updates from the driver XML and...
