SubjectProblem with ROMs new Reply to this message

New to the Mame hype, so I have downloaded and installed the latest Mamece3 engine and I have loaded some ROM files in Zip format. I can bring up the Mame main page in the IPAQ, and choose to show all games. I get a huge list of games, which I am assuming are what I can play once I have the appropriate ROM files. However, I have a couple of ROM files in the ROM folder on the IPAQ and Mamece app. does will not recognize them and therefore I cannot play them. If I manually unzip the files then choose the game 1942, then I can play it...HELP>>>

This is correct.

My guess would have to be that your zipfile name is not correct. it should match the folder name used in MAME Version .36.
Try rezipping the files fresh or redownloading the ROM.

Hello Techmaster

Same problem, Games only work unzipped. I've tried with ghosts'n goblins unzipped and it takes (with blak screen) 10 seconds to run. I don't know if it is usual or not.

Please, help.

Best regards.
