>> Being able to sort the game list by "Directory." Stock MAME can't do this, and it makes it much easier to find gamesets for troubleshooting.

> What's a "directory" in the MAME context? Like each folder of your rom path?

I'm convinced that, by saying "directory", the poster has in mind:



The keyword here is "gamesets" as he says (meaning "romsets"), i.e. the internal-romset-string-which-uniquely-define-each-game sorting capability of the GUI, and not sorting by the game's (human readable) name (which is game description internally... if I'm not mistaken... nevermind). Although I think the term "gameset" is incorrectly used here as it may have quite different meaning than just a "romset", no offense.

>> Custom INI files through a simple "properties" box. Okay, I don't use this so much any more, but it is still the slickest and easiest way to configure a game ini file, or mame.ini itself.

> Don't understand this one; could you explain specifically what it does?

Again, IMO, the poster talks about the specific capability that the GUI has of configuring concrete game:





...which affects nothing else, but that game's .ini file (stored in the "ini" folder by default):



...and also, the GUI's capability of configuring the default emulation parameters for all games:





...which affects the default emulation settings .ini file (also stored in the "ini" folder by default):



But doesn't MAME already has this functionality built-in via the <TAB> key when IN emulation?



Or are these in-game configurations different from the configs made through the GUI?
Sorry for giving more questions than answers.
