Beta u53 release
- RESOURCE.ML updates to take in account new new known data regarding MAME
commands and romsets up to 0.148u1.
- Fixed issues surrounding using MAME
emulators being named
something different than their accompying .ini files. In some cases
would share folders, this lead to .ini files being
misread and causing rompath confusion such as using mame.ini instead of
mess.ini, with the results showing inaccurate assumptions of available
- Took out F8 (create/backup .ini file) as it was rather buggy. If you
need your .ini moved or deleted - it is better (and safer) to do so
- The new Misfitmame revival project "Homebrew MAME
(hbmame)" will work
just fine with ML. Simply extract this package (and the 2 added .DLL)
in the same folder as the HBMAME executable. Create a new .ini with the
command "hbmame -cc". Edit that hbmame.ini file to add the rompaths that
differ from "roms" in the current folder. When you run ML the first
time, it assumes you want to run MAME
. If it does not find it, you need
to let the program not find it, creating a file "favorite.ml". You then
edit this file - finding the line "executable_name=" and putting "hbmame".
Save the text file and run ML again. Everything should start fine.
