how to get mame to detect games

Postby zeeky » Mon May 09, 2005 9:06 pm

ok i had this prob and i'm tired of ppl b****ing about it

befor we start you'll need winrar so go get it

lets take a game for example

Darkstalkers: The Night Warriors (Euro 940705)

after you d/l the game you'll have quite a few files

take all the files and put them on your destop

then open mame and find the r0m you d/led

after that scrool right and find the diretory name

then go to your destop and highlight all the roms

then right click and find send to then go to ziped folder and click it

then right click the ziped folder and go to rename

then rename the folder to your r0m directory name

and put it in your r0m directory allong with all the r0m files on your destop

then go in mame and refresh the r0m list

then go to file and then audit all games

then go to avalable games and if its not there then i dont know what to do

hope it helps!
