add a search folder for roms

hi! in the old mame i had from some years ago, i could add search path for roms in a mame.ini file.

in the current mame version i downloaded i cannot see how to do that! there's no mame.ini, just a ui.ini which doesn't contain a variable for roms directory...

If you open a prompt, you can run :

Code: Select all

mame -createconfig
which creates a mame.ini in the same directory with the default settings, and there you can change the 'rompath' setting to where your roms are located.
