Why do some emulator options not stick?
04/05/21 12:22 AM


I have noticed that some artwork include marquees and control panels- these may be fine for vertically oriented screens, but for normal horizontal screens these take up way too much screen estate so I want to turn them off. I did notice the default emulator options for MAME give me checkboxes to turn these off, but I have found that if I uncheck these boxes, click okay, then run the game the marquee and control panel still show. Going back to the default emulator options, the options are checked again. In fact, if I change the options, click okay then go back to the options without running a game, the boxes are checked again. I have found the only artwork option that will retain a change is the bezel option- the rest if I remove the check they will not save and will be checked again on reload of the default menu option dialog.

Am I doing something wrong? I know I should be able to change these options as well in either mame.ini or cfg/default.cfg but so far I have not found how to do this- I have tried copying relevant lines in (game).cfg to default.cfg, and can only guess if there are similar options that can be put under the core artwork options in mame.ini if only I could find them.

So far I can only do this per game in MAME itself after loading the game, but I really want to set it to not use marquees or control panels by default, whether in a MAME config/ini file or in Emuloader. Any help is appreciated, thanks.
