___empty being involved tells me that the UI is appearing at some point. To avoid that you need to provide the driver you're going to record. WolfMAME provides batch files for recording and playback, it is recommended to use these. Syntax is record gamename INP-filename [optional extra switches] It will add the .inp extension for you. If you have Tcl/Tk installed, there is a basic GUI that can be used also.

As for the "error in commandline" sounds like the inpview setting in mame.ini is incorrect (it should be a number, or 0 to disable).
