    I setup mame with like 36000 roms so I will play a lot of games only if I launch the games with rocketlauncher it will put the ini in the Main Mame directory where the mameui64.exe is so if I play a lot of games then it will be full inis
    I setup the ini directory in mameui64.exe if I start a game it saves it to the .ini directory.

    how can I make rocketlauncher to save the .ini to to the ini directory inside the mame folder ?

    Set the ini path in the module settings.

    Does it make any difference if i use PcLauncher to launch a mame game , ive put the ini in the module but thats Mame Module.
    I use a Reshade CRT GEOM shader as i prefer it over mame hlsl.

    i found out if i launch a Mame Game with the Mame Module the effects in the shader are disabled.

    I didnt figure out why maybe because something in the ini overwrites the efffect.
    If i launch the game with a bat the effects of the shader stays intact but it puts the ini in the Main Mame folder and not in the ini directory

    If i launch the bat without rocketlauncher it saves the ini to the ini directory because i pointed it in the mame.ini

    Yes, if you're not using the MAME module none of the MAME module settings matter.

    If you're using a batch file RL isn't modifying anything. It doesn't make sense to me that running the batch file from RL produces different results than running it directly.

    yes youre right , it isnt rocketlauncher.
    If i launch the bat it puts the ini in the main folder , if i run the game when i use mameui64 it puts it in the ini folder

    But i solved the problem i was reading an older post regarding enabling GLSL in the mame module that did fix the problem
    video mode set to opengl
    The shader appears right now , man that spares alot of time i was settingup making alkinds of .bat
