Odd rom suddenly not working - DRIVING ME NUTS!
#342948 - 07/26/15 02:59 PM


Hi all

I have a cabinet running Maximus Arcade and Mame 0.154 and as generally all running fine. The last time I powered on the machine one of my favourite games - Gunsmoke - decided not to work. I get a very quick loading screen as usual then just goes to black screen. I did find a couple of other roms that did the same (can't remember which) but most other games run fine.
I've tried downloading the rom again (in case it was just a corrupt file) but nothing I try gets this game to run again.

Any ideas guys as its driving me crazy!!

If you have not changed anything on the machine, then I would suggest a corrupted graphic card driver or the graphic card failing.

Hi. Cheers for the response. Tried reinstalling graphics driver but no good.

All other games run fine...just Gunsmoke! Don't understand it.
I did manage to get Gunsmoke to run by moving some of the rom files and reconfiguring Maximus to look to that folder for games but then couldn't get any others to work.

GRRRR!!!!

So I have now pretty much tried everything....new graphics driver, new MAME, new rom file, moved all files to a new directory and reconfigured everything and whatever I try Gun Smoke will not run yet all other roms run fine.

Really pulling my hair out now...not that i have much left!

Please someone save whats left on my scalp and figure out whats causing this issue

If changing things in Maximus allowed it to run, then I'd say it's something in Maximus. Try outside of that. If all run, then you know.

I agree this should be easy to test outside of Maximus.

If I were you I'd delete a couple files and try again. Delete the gunsmoke file in the NVRAM folder if it's there. Also the CFG file in the CFG folder, the file in the Hi folder, and the one in STA if it's there.. Or just rename them and try to run the game.

If you delete them you'll lose any controller customization you've done, and your hi-score, but that's about it.
