MAMEUI not recognizing certain games from my directory?
#360196 - 11/03/16 10:04 PM


I just realized today that my MAMEUI is not recognizing certain games from my directory. For example, games like Metal Slug and Bloody Roar are in the Unavailable category even though I have them in my roms directory. I have 27903 other games in the Available category that were recognized just fine (although only 8333 are working). So why did some games, that I obviously have and work, not get recognized? I'm using MAMEUI64 0.179 with MAME 0.161 roms and I'm on Windows 7.

I thought about that, but it seems strange that most of the roms were still recognized even though the MAMEUI is a different version. Also, the roms that are in the Unavailable category are still playable if I open them...So yeah it's weird, but I guess I'll try to find an older version of MAMEUI because they don't have the previous releases of it on their website sadly.

With each mame versions, sets change. Sometimes a few, sometimes a lot...you need to update/audit them.

Yeah I got an older version of MAMEUI and it worked...Thanks a lot!

Also, do you know of a program that can delete any non-working roms? I got like half the games flagged as non-working...
