Re: Softlist location

I have my MAME arcade ROMs D:\mame_roms\ folder and all MESS machines in d:\mess_roms\
All software list games are in sub-folders of the \mess_roms\ folder as I like to keep them separate from the arcade ROMs.

the software lists must be placed in sub-folders named the same as their software list names

Atari 2600 ROMs must be in a2600 sub-folder (d:\mess_roms\a2600\)
MSX 1 cartridge must be in msx_cart sub-folder (d:\mess_roms\msx1_cart\)

You do NOT need to define the softlist sub-folders in mame.ini, only the main folders. I have mine like this.


rompath D:\mame_roms;D:\mame_roms\chd_files;D:\mame_roms\device_sets;d:\mess_roms;D:\mess_roms\device_sets;roms

MAME will search games in software list name sub-folders automatically.
