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 nothing seems to happen. Is there a way to undo this or do I need to replace the ROM?
Also what is "Attach a signature" under the post options?
The "IO Read Test" screen is part of the service mode options. If I had to guess, you mistakenly toggled it along the way by hitting F2. If you hit F2 again after you get to that screen then stop and restart MAME, you should boot into game normally.
A "signature" in this forum is a tagline or text at the bottom of every message you post here. Most people would have no need for it.
