New to MAME. Using MAMEUI64.
Completely lost on how to organize my content.
I know that Roms, CHDs, and BIOS can be placed inside the Mameui64 > Roms directory. However, I speculate that you don't need to place these files in the Roms folder and instead you can point MAME to these folders - accomplishing the same result. I know that this strategy works in original MAME by editing the mame.ini and ui.ini files to point MAME at these folders and everything will work without the need of moving anything around.
But I'm using MAMEUI64 and things may be a bit different.
Plus, I have: "EXTRAs" and "Multimedia" folders that include artwork, ctrlr, dats, folders, samples, soundtrack, videosnaps, videosnaps_SL. I'm not sure where these go?
Also, I have "Software List ROMs" and I'm not sure where they go.
I'd think in MAMEUI I should be able to go: Options > Directories and point MAME to these specific folders/files?
Could really use some help on this; driving me crazy.
Am I allowed to use this forum with a VPN? Curious, as it seems like a lot of forums don't tolerate VPN usage. Thanks.
