    Hi there,
    So with the help of fellow forum members I have been able to slowly but successfully get my mame system up and running. Super Happy!
    But a new hurdle is here. For some reason after downloading a full romset .161 onto an external hard drive, rocket launcher is unable to find the games. I added the new rom path in the same box as where the individual games I tested the system with are located. Its not coming up with any error. There is a green circle next to the rom path. I have not deleted the old path and it is still picking up on those three games. The only difference I can think of is that the new rom path is not in the same folder or drive as rocket launcher, hyperspin, or mame as its to large to fit on the computers remaining memory, hence the external hard drive. I'm not sure the romset is good either but I'm not sure how I would test it besides what I'm already doing.

    As always any help is greatly appreciated.
    Thanks in advance.
    Blake

    Hey I just thought maybe its because they are not inside the roms folder within mame?
    Could I move the mame folder over to the external hard drive without any issues and would this make any difference?
    Thanks

    Should'nt be any issue creating a folder on external drive and mapping to it. I'd say check your romset. Make sure rom files arent zipped inside another folder or something weird like that.

    ok your thinking there is an internal folder that's got them zipped? I know they don't recommend unzipping individual game files.
    thanks

    and by mapping you mean a simple shortcut?
    thanks

    When I mean mapping, i mean the path you set in RL. In my case all the individual zipped roms are located directly in my MAME 195 folder.

    Of course also check that the roms are named the same as in RL.

    it seems to be mapped fine, as there is a green circle. But it is in a separate drive from all other applications associated with this mame setup. The romset is the only thing not on my computer.

    Like I said, it doesnt matter if they are on a separate drive. You have the green circle on your mapping so its finding the path. What about when you search games in RL? Do they come up green? If not then they are named wrong or zipped wrong.

    Open one of your zipped games. Make sure all the rom files for that game are right there and they dont have multiple versions of the game zipped in the same folder.

    heres a pic of the romset folder. after selecting a different folder for the pathway i did manage to get rocket launcher to find 341 games but thats out of 8000 that should be there and after testing there are a lot that dont work. should any of these files be unzipped? i started unzipping one and stopped after finding the games. i identified the game rom file and thats what im using for my path. it has all the roms zipped.

    thanks

    I'm handcuffed a little right now as I'm at work. ill look at the individual game folders around 2 and let you know. Then after work ill really dig in and figure it out. I'm trying to get a head start.

    also just to let you know the file that's selected in the picture is the file I'm using the rom path of. Should i be utilizing the main folder as the path? would that possibly help with the roms that are showing as invalid?
    thanks

    The file you have highlighted in the screenshot is an archive. You need to extract the contents of the archive to a directory and point RLUI to that directory. You also need to set the rompath in the mame.ini to that directory (the emulator's ini file, not RL).

    so it looks like there is another folder where those files have already been unzipped. when browsing the selected folder after set as the rompath i can see all the games in there zipped files. but i cannot find the mame settings ini file to be able to change the rom path?
    thanks

    ok so after switching that rom path inside of mame.ini which was inside of the hyperspin settings folder i now see the 341 games in hyperspin. many do not work or load into test menu.
    thanks

    The mame ini agent47 was talking about will be in your mame emulator folder, not the one in the hyperspin folder.
