SubjectTwilight Zone table new Reply to this message

I downloaded the tz_94h.zip file for the ROMs for the Twilight Zone table and even put it in it's own
folder named tx_94h as suggested on this board but still got the message that ROMs were missing
or bad. Just on a hunch, I also downloaded tz_92.zip from Shiva's site. When I also unzipped those
ROMs into my \roms\tz_94h folder, I was finally able to get the game to play.

Only one file is in the tz_94h.zip file and nothing is mentioned of needing the ROMs in tz_92.zip.

This info may come in handy...

You might also want to avoid putting things in their own folders entirely and just leave the Roms zipped up in the roms folder. This keeps things even more organized and saves you hard drive space.

Lair...the problem with your suggestion for TZ is it seems to be one of possible two ROM zips that PinMAME has a problem with. I and many others have tried to keep the TZ ROMs zipped up, but it will never see or run the roms in the zip file. But creating the tz_94h directory and extracting the TZ Roms in it makes the game work! And before you ask, yes I've zipped and rezipped and rezipped the files since some of the Williams zips would not work correctly unless you extracted the files and zipped them back up again.

Odd, works fine for me. I downloaded them from Shiva's site awhile back when the table first came out I think. I also downloaded all the different revisions for each table I had so perhaps the files from one of the other zips were being used or perhaps the files have changed since I downloaded them. Not sure.

I understand the logic of leaving the ROMs in a zip file. I do that whenever possible.

What I wanted to make people aware of was that the recommended tz94_h file apparently doesn't have all
the ROMs for the table. The other referred zip file has the rest of the ROMs needed.

I didn't check to see if pinMAME could read both zip files. At that point, I had just unzipped all ROMs needed
into a tz94_h folder.
