Didn't respond since i waited for a couple of weeks, no response, so i gave up.. just happened on this thread again when i decided to give it another shot..
I haven't hard reset since having it installed last time, though at that time i did try running after a fresh hard reset.
i updated to the latest gapi, mamece tried to install older, but i denied it (mabye i should allow it...?)
I copied ms pacman to rom folder (only rom i have that i know for sure has all correct files....
Loaded mame, loaded fine.
Highlighted ms pacman, clicked play, I got a console that said my file system is corrupt, please check. Several lines of that error and a references to roms that were installed last time i tried it. (again, this is a fresh install of mamece). Checked mamce folder for a config file that might have old rom references in it, none. Searched the registry (resco explorer 2003), no rom references..
After the errors though, same results as before. A box with text at the end of which is instructions to type ok. I hit left then right, nothing. I tried hitting alternatley left and right over and over, nothing. Tried hitting start, nothing. Apparently it's crashed. Hit the reset. Checked memory, 19.8 storage and 18.19 program.
