When running mame from the command line.
Is there any way I can disable the press OK to continue and the messages I might get that this game does not run properly.
So that notification window does not come up.
Generally speaking, there are two 'kinds' of messages :
For all games (working and non-working): A 'general game info' screen, that lists things like manufacturer, and some hardware information. These can be suppressed by using the '-skip_gameinfo' option on the commandline, or by adding 'skip_gameinfo 1' in your mame.ini
For non-working games, you get an additional message that clearly states that (parts of) the emulation does not work yet. This message cannot be disabled. The reason for this is to make absolutely sure that the user understands that the game/machine does not work yet, that there is nothing to be done about it by the user, and that the user does not go asking around or submitting bug reports for machines that are KNOWN to not be working. In order to prevent this from happening, and potentially wasting people's time, the developers made it impossible to disable this screen.
