need help figuring out MAME or XP software or possible hardware issue
05/11/16 04:07 AM


Hello all, Trying to get an old arcade cabinet back from the dead with PC and MAME32.

Issue I am having is: when selecting a game it shows bar graph loading to 100%, then black screen, then instant return to game list. (not loading ANY roms)

I'm using no front end.

I have looked at stickies on this site and others but to no avail. (web research point to people updating roms or MAME but I have done neither (these were matched and functional).

I have and older dell pentium 4 PC with XP sp1 and MAME32 version 0.72 and matching roms (yes i know its not the newest) I bought this as a package (emulator and matching roms on CD) from somebody on ebayUK years ago (2004). This worked out of the box on multiple PCs years ago and since this cd is read only I am not capable of swapping roms, overwriting, updating and such. All should still work?

I'm thinking maybe because PC is using Windows XP SP1 or maybe directX related problem?

Is there a log to look at in MAME 32 or errors?

Thanks for any and all suggestions.
