Just dowloaded all versions of mamece, making sure to use SH3 version (that's what jornada 525 requires. Couldn't get any to work. Some ROMs freeze the system, requiring a soft reset, some blank the screen (goes black) for a second or two ad go back to the mame screen. I did notice that the file gx.dll wasn't on my 525, looking through its explorer, but it seemed to be looking at it from the host- apparently it's a hidden file?? Haven't been able to get any version/rom to work, have tried 8 or 10 DLLs. I could be doing something wrong, i know PCs pretty well but i'm a bit new to the PPCs.
I did try using the auto installer (exe)and also tried copying CABs to the system and installing that way. Did unistall through active syc between each reistall. Did try different versions of some roms.
