I need a little help getting started. I use to have MAME a while back and it took quite a bit of trial and error to get things the way I liked them. MAME32 I believe it was. Wanting to get running again (or jumping rather as I am a huge DK fan) I have a few questions I hope someone can help me with.
I have a new laptop computer, HP 15 notebook running windows 10 Microsoft edge.
Question 1. I blindly installed MAME 64 version 0.185. At first it would crash to desktop and then stay on after the 2nd attempt. I tried several ways to uninstall it and now for some reason it boots right up. However I think I tampered with some files. I just want to completely uninstall it and all files and for the life of me can't find a way. Please help.
Question 2. I was reading that recently MAME partnered up and now you can play other types of games on the same emulator. Does that include all versions of MAME?
Question3. My main purpose is to play Donkey Kong but I have children as well. We are all gamers. What is the best version of MAME for me to play my DK and the kids to have a wide variety of not only arcade games but system games as well like the article I read?
Any help at all on any of the questions is greatly appreciated.
