Mame LUA extensibility - emu.gamename() returning "Nintendo" instead of cartridge name
11/28/17 12:14 PM


This may be by design, if so I am looking for help on a workaround.

When using the lua extensibility engine for Mame, and when I have a nes game loaded...when I query for
emu.gamename() when a nes game is loaded (Legend of Zelda in this case)

I get back:

Nintendo Entertainment System / Famicom (NTSC).

I'd like to either get back "Legend of Zelda". Is this a bug in the lua extensability engine, or am I just doing it wrong? Does anyone know of a workaround to detect which nes game is loaded from the LUA plugin system?

Thanks in advance
