Thread: Newbe Help Please

    Default Newbe Help Please

    Ok I'm vary green at this and am having a heck of a time to get it to work. I have a pretty cool cab built with a 8" sub with it's own amp, 4 mids and tweeters on there own amp. 19" wide screen/touch screen for the jukebox. 1TB hard drive for Mame and another 1TB hard drive with 228,000 songs for the jukebox. The problem is I spent more time making it look "PRETTY" instead of making it function first. Running Windows 7 32bit. So here is what I've done. I have downloaded MameUI32 .160 and that seems to be opening right. I have downloaded roms .160 and put the zipped folders in mame roms folder. Did a game search, audit, refresh and another game search and maybe, just maybe have 6 games that work. I've download many rom sets with matching roms and have no luck. I am now on version .160. I have read, read, and read and can't seem to figure out whats going on. Came across a thread from somebody else with this problem that said they added bois and it worked. I downloaded .160 bois and put them in the rom folder also. Still no go. I have other troubles to but I will start with this. Please help, I'm bald and have no extra hair to pull out.

    Do your options match your rom types? I.E split sets looking for split roms? Sounds like it is just not finding the files.

    If you download the split set, did you audit for split set and did you audit with ClrMAMEpro or romcenter? If all roms check out, then in mame it should also check out. Also make sure to do the disk image files (CHD).

    Any folder, you set that in mame. I'm not sure if CHD is needed for CHD games to actually run (memory tells me yes). Though for non CHD games, you of course dont need it.

    Well I can't get the chd's it just stopped and don't want to go any farther. I downloaded romvault loaded 160 dat and uploaded it to romvault, put roms into sort folder, scanned everything, clicked find fixes and clicked fix roms. It went through all that. Says 2000 something didn't get fixed and everything else was geen which says it's working. Moved the new fixed roms to mame roms folder. Made sure directory for roms was pointed at roms. Did a game search in mame. Did a audit and the little screen that pops up says most games need new dumb or it said not working. I try to scroll through the games and it wont let me. just stays at a game called 88. I'm running mameui32 .160 on a windows 7 machine. Have .160 roms. Have put bois in the roms folder. Romvault says there good games. I don't get it. I'm about ready to buy a complete hard drive on line preloaded. Found a guy that sells them but I really wanted to do this from scratch on my own. Complete build from bottom to top but and reached the end of my patience. Is there anybody that see something I am doing wrong? Like I said I'm new to this but really enjoy learning but there is a time to say enough is enough. Please help

    This is all normal. I had the same luck until I found about sites like pleasure dome, closed community for rom sharing. I can't give you the url but search for it. Mame is a pain but learning ClrMAMEpro helps. Though non of that is any good unless you can get good clean roms.
