I just wanted to say that I successfully compiled my own Mame 127. This is a big accomplishment for me since I am normally terrible at this stuff. One stupid question though: Since I created the command line version, I'm not sure how to access the preferences so that I can enable joystick input and play around with some of the other options. Any advice? Smiley

Create a text file in the same folder as your Mame executable, with the following text, then save it as CreateConfig.bat (change mame.exe to match your Mame executable)

-- CreateConfig.bat --
Code:

mame.exe -cc


Now just double click the CreateConfig.bat and it will create a mame.ini you can edit in Notepad. You could of course just run that from a command prompt but I'm assuming you don't know how to do that.

I'm not sure I understand what you mean by "change mame.exe to match your Mame executable", since Mame.exe is already my mame executable. Also, inside the batch file that I need to create, is mame.exe -cc the only thing I need to enter, or do I physically need to type -- CreateConfig.bat -- in the line above it? I dunno!

That would be the only line you write in notepad:

mame.exe -cc

save the file as CreateConfig.bat in the same folder that the mame.exe file is and then 'open' or 'run' the newly created file.

OR....

You can open a command prompt...migrate to the mame folder via cd command. So, if your mame.exe is in c:\mame, all you type at the command prompt would be "cd c:\mame"
and then type "mame -cc" at the command prompt and the mame.ini magically appears :-)
