Re: Mame LUA extensibility - emu.gamename() returning "Nintendo" instead of cartridge name

Gamename gives the romset fullname. For the software name use can use emu.softname() for the short loaded software list entry name or manager:machine().images[*imagedev*]:longname() for the softlist entry description (*imagedev* is the image device the softlist entry is loaded into "cart" for the nes). This works only for softlist images, for fullpath loaded images you're on your own.
