I can't add Mame's roms. Help!
« on: October 17, 2019, 09:34:02 am »
Hello everyone

It is my first message in the forum, I hope that this doubt is convenient to express here.
I have an Rg350 for a couple of days and I'm really liking it.
I managed to add and play Roms de Snes, PSx and neogeo.

However, I haven't been able to do it with MAME. I installed a 32gb sd where I'm storing all the roms.

When I use both mame emulators (xmame and the other one that comes from the factory) I look for the route where I have the roms and it's like the emulator can't find them. I've tried it with .zip roms that work in a raspberry and a retrostone for example, but here it doesn't find them. I have also tried to include them decompressed in folders and does not run them.

I tried to use the internal sd opening to the machine, and when I plugged the sd into an imac there were no mame folders to incorporate the roms ... If I use a computer with windows will be different?

I have also tried using my own roms in FBA and it gives me the same problem.

Am I doing something wrong? Can someone help me?

Thank you very much and sorry if it's a silly question :)

Hi and Welcome !!! :)

1) Which ROM sets are you using ?
2) Which version of MAME are you using ?
3) Where are you putting the ROMS ?
4) Is this Custom Firmware or Stock ?
Dingoo A320, GCW0, RS-97 x2, Revo-K101, RS-90, PSP, GameGadget, New 3DS 128GB, PS Vita 200GB, RS-45, Gamebox Advance and a few other obscure devices

For XMAME 1.3 you will need to put the ROMs in the roms directory located where the executable is.

Also, there are three versions of MAME included 0.37b16, 0.69 and 0.84.

If you can wait a little bit I will be releasing XMAME 2.0 once I receive my RG-350. I should have it soon.

For XMAME you need to press the start button to refresh the list of games I think.

Awesome that Slaanesh is going to be developing Mame for RG350.
My unit should be here in a few days and i can't wait. Mame will be one of my main reasons for getting this device.
So cool that Slaanesh is going to be updating again.
Thanks Slaanesh :)

Slaanesh is also waiting for the arrival of the rg350, it is fortunate that he develops a new xmame 2.0
