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

Are you loading from the softlist or fullpath?

With softlist loading you'll get something like:

Code:

mess64 -debug nes smb -plugin console
_/ _/ _/_/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/
_/_/ _/_/ _/ _/ _/_/ _/_/ _/
_/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/ _/ _/ _/ _/_/_/
_/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/
_/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/

mess 0.191

[MAME]>

MESS debugger version 0.191 (unknown)
Currently targeting nes (Nintendo Entertainment System / Famicom (NTSC))
[MAME]> print(emu.softname())
smb
[MAME]> print(manager:machine().images["cart"]:longname())
Super Mario Bros. (Euro, Rev. A)
[MAME]>


With fullpath loading you'll get empty strings for both. manager:machine().images["cart"]:filename() will get you the file name but that's all that's available.
