  1. Sorry, I forgot to post my files. Thanks in advance! Jim GameEx.ini runitgame.bat log.txt
  2. Hello! I have been using GameEx for about 2 or so months and had some questions that I just can't seem to figure out myself. Any help would be appreciated. Getting hiscores to work. I had previously asked and was pointed to HeadKaze's awesome Mamecompiler64. I have tried to use the autodownload feature, downloaded the files myself and a combination of the two. I have completely uninstalled everything and re-installed. The latest error I am getting is: Testing Diff Patch... Assertion failed: hunk, file patch-2.5.4/patch.c, line 343 patching file src/emu/render.cpp This application has requested the Runtime to terminate it in an unusual way. Please contact the application's support team for more information. Finished! 0 Hours 0 Minutes and 1 Seconds Elapsed. When I set up some of my console emulators, I cant figure out how to get the right game names to show up in the game list. As an example, when I added the Atari 2600 roms, I went through the setup wizard and I selected "Use database name". When I go to the game list, I get the rom file names and not the actual game names. I have been modifying the Arcade84 theme for my cabinet. I remember going to arcades as a teenager, and it really brings back a lot of memories. Anyway, the theme has a giant screen in the background and I was wondering if I could play videos on that screen. If I can, can somebody point me in the right direction. Another theme editing question. When the theme initially loads, the menu I have is transparent (i.e. you can read the words, but you can see through the list). When I click on the list or use the arrow keys to select something on the list, the list is no longer transparent and has rows of blue that I can't see through. Is there a setting where I can specify what the lists should look like. Lastly, I wanted to play around with Evolution but no longer can find the download file. Is it still available for Alpha testing? Can I sign up to be a tester? Sorry for the multitude of questions. Thanks, Jim Thanks, Jim
  3. OK, I am finally back from travel and have gotten pretty far with the compiler. I managed to get it to run all the way through and it listed an error in red on the second to last step (It took about 21 or so minutes). I noticed that I did not click "No warnings as errors" in Build Options. I clicked that option and hit go. Now I get a bunch of green (good) things and the same red errors after about 1 to 2 minutes. What am I doing wrong? I have downloaded a new version of MAME source code. Do I need to reinstall the MAME compiler tools? How about the Hi-Score diff patch? Here is the output that I got on my last run. The bolded lines are the errors. Any help would greatly be appreciated.
  4. I had no idea (this should not come as a shock to those that know me). I will take a look and install what you provided. Thanks! Jim
  5. I seem to be having trouble with the compiler. I will admit that I am not the most technical person. Here is what I did. I downloaded and installed the compiler from the link you provided. I downloaded and extracted MAME182 (the version of ROMs that I have) I downloaded the highscore diff file and put it in the proper folder When I hit apply patch, I get the following: Can you help? I tried compiling with the given errors but it works for about 8 or 9 minutes and then there wasn't any output (or none that I could find). Thanks in advance, Jim
  6. Thanks! I didn't realize that I had to do that. I will download headkazes utility and try it out. Thanks! Jim
  7. Hello! I am trying to setup some plugins. As an example, I downloaded the necessary files and checked the box in the setup menu to use hiscores, but nothing happens. After some research, I need to change a line in plugin.ini, but I can't find the file. I did a search and came up with nothing. Can anyone point me in the right direction or send me a copy of their file so I can edit it? Or I am just completely off-base and need to do something totally different. Thanks, Jim
  8. I am pretty sure that my ROM set matches the current version of MAME. Is there a way to verify? Thanks! Jim
  9. I have MAME mostly setup and was going through my game list and adding favorites. When I got to Kung Fu Master, GameEx froze up and I had to reboot the computer. If I scroll down through the list and stop on Kung Fu Master, the video snap plays and it shows the 3D cabinet. It is when I select the game and it shows "Play This Game" and the other options where this occurs. I thought it was the video snap, so I temporarily deleted it and the same problem occurred. It also happens on Ms. Pacman. I've attached the normal files that are requested. Any assistance on where to look would be greatly appreciated. Thanks, Jim log.txt runitgame.bat GameEx.ini
  10. I think I finally figured it out. I went into the setup program and changed the theme back to default and everything seems to be working. Sorry, Jim
  11. Sorry, I completely forgot to load my files. Jim log.txt runitgame.bat GameEx.ini
  12. Hello! When I tried to load Gameex today, I got the below error message. I ran Gameex yesterday with no problems and today it wont load. Any help would be appreciated. I tried uninstalling and re-installing and that didn't help.

  13. Sorry, it has taken so long for me to respond. I made the mistake of going skiing with my kids and my back wound up paying the price. I finally got everything working, although not perfectly. Like you guys said, I took out the extra space in - mouse tag and things worked from there. My rom set isn't matched with the current version of MAME, but I am working on fixing that. When ever I change something, if I do not do an "Update List", then nothing changes in GameEx so I figured that every time I change something I now just hit update list. So far, I love the front end. Once I fully get MAME working I am going to start pulling in other Emulators (N64, C64, NES, etc). I really appreciate everyone's help.
  14. Thanks for all of the help. I managed to get the entire list up and I will work on getting it the way I want. One problem that I am still having is that none of the games are loading. I've put in the files that you requested above. Thanks, Jim GameEx.ini log.txt runitgame.bat
  15. Thank you very much, I certainly appreciate the assistance. I've attached the 2 files that you requested. I tried to run 10 Yard Fight. As for the ROMs, I don't know which version they are, but they are certainly not the newest version. I am working on getting a new set. Is there a way to verify the Roms that I have agains the current version of MAME (for the ROMs that haven't changed) and remove the ones that have? I need to change the directory structure to what you have suggested and will do so shortly. I thought that I had put everything under C:\Emulation\...., but I will have to check. Again, I apologize for being so uneducated when it comes to all of this. I really appreciate your help! log.txt GameEx.ini runitgame.bat
