Crashing

Wed Apr 17, 2019 12:36 am

I am running the latest version of Mame, straight from their site with Game x and Mame continually crashes. I have gone through redit boards and created a config file. Changed video from ddram, nope, then gdi, same. crash. D3D, crash. opengl crash. I downloaded the latest version of directx. nope. Anyway, its windows 10 with the latest version of MAME and Game Ex. Although, Game Ex I don't believe is the problem. It mostly happens when I am scrolling through all games. Some have asked about video card in past posts. It's Intel Q45/Q43 express chipset. I feel like I have tried everything. Any Ideas?

Does the same happen when you do not use a frontend (like GameEx ), but instead run mame directly ?

Also, do you get a specific error message when the 'crash' occurs ? What is that message ? (You may have to run MAME from the commandline in order to see an error message).

That sounds quite weird...

Try to use the CMD console to see debug messages instead of double clicking the exe.

Start a "cmd" console, then start "mame64.exe -verbose". Please paste the log so we can help you further.

is it really supported in Windows 10 an old chipset like Intel Q45 ?

Good question. According to the Intel website it is not supported [1] (it's listed under 'Legacy Intel Graphics Products'), and they don't provide drivers for Windows 10 either [2].
