NOOB needs help

Post by madmalk » Sat Oct 07, 2006 11:40 am

I've been using mame32 for a few years and as you all will know recording and playback is quite easy but since finding MARP i need to learn how to use wolfmame and older versions of mame so I can watch some of the amazing displays of skill.

My problem is I'm new to DOS and need help I've spent 2 days straight trying to playback Novice@Team2ch.jp score of 5,347,810 on R-Type Leo (Japan) (rtypelej) using mame60

I've managed to set the rom directory but thats about it I can play the game but I have no clue how to record/playback

Heres my mame.ini

If your MAME .60 executable file is name mame60.exe, and you have the ROMset rtypelej.zip in your ROMS directory, and you have unzipped his rtype.inp file to your INP directory, then you would type:

Code: Select all

mame60 -pb rtype
...at the DOS prompt to play the recording.

I would type:
Mame rtype -playback rtype
Unfortunately, Hisa, though, does use tactics usually, not only skill.

Different MAME versions use different ini files. Better have separate ini files for every MAME version I think.

correct.
im planning a strategy rather than tactics,it is not important.
i have no excellent skills as you know.
to use my name as NOVICE for 15years is the truth.

just im not an extreme fool like ignorant complainers.
