The following instructions try to assume very little knowledge of computers, but it does assume you know how use Windows Explorer to navigate to your e:\Mames folder, create a new folder, copy files from your downloads directory, and how to move files with Windows Explorer.
Note: Wherever I refer to wolfmame-0108.exe or alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip or Playback.bat etc below, if your Windows Explorer still has the option set to hide extensions for known file types then the .exe or .zip or .bat etc part of the filenames may not be displayed. If the rest of the filename matches, you can assume you're copying or double clicking or right clicking on the appropriate file.
1. To avoid any possible contamination from your previous attempts, use Windows Explorer to create a brand new folder called Wolf108 in your e:\Mames folder.
2. Again, to avoid any possible contamination from your previous attempts, click on each of the following two hyperlinks to download fresh copies of WolfMame108 and the Kungfu Master recording from Alpha.
http://replay.marpirc.net/inp/1/1/0/alp ... olf108.zip
3. Once the downloads have finished, copy the two files wolfmame-0108.exe and alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip from your downloads directory to the e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder you created in Step 1.
4. Double click on the wolfmame-0108.exe application file.
5. If an Open File - Security Warning dialog is displayed, click the Run button to continue.
6. The 7-zip self-extracting archive dialog will now display with Extract to prefilled with e:\Mames\Wolf108. Click the Extract button to continue.
7. You should now find that you have 1 new folder, called docs, and 11 other new files in your e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder in addition to the wolfmame-0108.exe and alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip files that you copied from your downloads folder at step 3.
8. Create a new folder called roms in your e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder
9. Copy the kungfum.zip file from the roms folder of your existing WolfMame106\roms folder to the new e:\Mames\Wolf108\roms folder.
10. Create a new folder called inp in your e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder
11. Move the alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file from your e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder to the new e:\Mames\Wolf108\inp folder
12. Double click on the alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file. A new window should open up showing you the contents of this zipfile. Make sure the new window and the Windows Explorer window where you double clicked on the alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file are positioned so that you can easily see the white space area below the alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file.
13. There are two files in this zipfile. Move your mouse over top of the file called kungfum_wolf108_786540.inp, then click and hold down your left mouse button and the background colour of that entry should change to blue. With the mouse button still held down, drag the mouse so that it is over the white space area below the alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file in the Windows Explorer window. The mouse cursor should change to also have a box with a + symbol below the arrow. Release the mouse button at this point.
14. You should now have two files in your e:\Mames\Wolf108\inp folder. The original alp_kungfum_786540_wolf108.zip file and the kungfum_wolf108_786540.inp file we just extracted from the zip file.
15. To save some typing later, move the mouse over top of the kungfum_wolf108_786540.inp file, click the right mouse button. On the context menu that will popup, click the rename option. Rename the file to kungfum.inp instead of kungfum_wolf108_786540.inp and then press enter on the keyboard to save your changes.
15. Navigate back to the e:\Mames\Wolf108 folder in windows explorer.
16. Move the mouse over top of the mame.exe application, or just mame application if your windows explorer is still hiding file extensions, click the right mouse button. On the context menu that will popup, click the Create Shortcut option.
17. You should now have a new mame - Shortcut entry in the list of files. Move the mouse over top of the mame - Shortcut entry and click the right mouse button. On the context menu that will popup, click the Properties option.
18. You'll now have the mame - Shortcut Properties dialog displayed. The focus will be on the Target textbox, with all the text e:\Mames\Wolf108\mame.exe highlighted in blue. Press the right arrow key on your keyboard. The blue highlight should disappear and the carat should be flashing just to the right of the last 'e' of the text.
19. Type a space character, and then type -cc
20. The target textbox should now contain the following: e:\Mames\Wolf108\mame.exe -cc
21. Click the ok button to close the properties dialog, and the double click on the mame - Shortcut entry to run mame with the -cc setting. The black command prompt window will briefly flash up and you should then find that a new mame.ini configuration file has been created, or just mame configuration if you're still hiding known file extensions.
22. Ok, mame is now ready to roll, we have the inp file in the appropriate place, and we're ready to create a shortcut to playback the recording. Move your mouse over top of the playback.bat Windows batch file entry, it will just be called playback if you're still hiding file extensions. Click the right mouse button and choose the Create Shortcut option. You'll now have a new playback - Shortcut entry in the list.
23. Move the mouse over top of the playback - Shortcut entry. Click the right mouse button and choose Rename from the context menu. Name the file say Wolf108 Playback and then press enter.
24. Move the mouse over top of the renamed Wolf108 Playback entry. Click the right mouse button and choose Properties from the context menu. You'll now have the Wolf108 Playback Properties dialog displayed. Once again, the Target textbox will have focus and all the text will be selected in blue. Press the right arrow key on your keyboard. The blue highlight should disappear and the carat should be flashing just to the right of the last 't' of the text.
25. Now type a space character, followed by the following text: kungfum kungfum
26. The Target textbox should now contain the following: e:\Mames\Wolf108\playback.bat kungfum kungfum
27. Click the OK button to save your changes.
28. Now double click the Wolf108 Playback entry. It should open the black command dialog and shortly thereafter the usual mame screen waiting for you to press OK should be displayed.
When you want to playback a different game, be sure to put the inp file into the appropriate directory, rename it to the same name as the game name to save some typing, then adjust the Target details on the properties dialog for the Wolf108 Playback to reflect the different game name. eg: If you had a galaga.inp file that you wanted to playback, then the Target for the Wolf108 Playback Properties would contain the following:
e:\Mames\Wolf108\playback.bat galaga galaga
Just be sure of course to copy the galaga.zip file from your WolfMame106\roms folder to the Wolf108\roms folder.
I hope these instructions that are totally devoid of having to go anywhere near Command prompts helps you to get the Commandline only version of Wolf108 working. If any of it was way too basic for you, please accept my apologies in advance. I wanted to make sure these instructions were as complete as possible.
Note: It is possible to have your Wolf108 system read the roms from the same location as your WolfMame106, which is what the others were trying to talk you through, but I was trying to keep it easier for now. Once you have this running and working, let me know and I'll try to create similar level of instructions for doing that change, to save you having to copy the roms each time you want to playback another recording.
