Hi all,

I'm a bit of a a mame noob. But ive been playing around with mame 32 for years on and and off. Now I've built my first cab I've been trying to use a front end with no success.

Is there a good tutorial to follow?

And whats up with Mame, how the hell do you run it? i see no .exe (not mame32)

Ive got mala and mamewah, they both have me scratching my head.

any help would be appreciated.

Use atomicFE with mame32 and all should be fine.

Do you have the correct version of MAME from here?


DL it to its own folder called MAME under C:
Then just point MALA to it for the executable and roms, snaps etc.

Just out of interest, which front-end did you choose?

Gameex (http://www.gameex.net/)is a awesome front end. does all sorts of stuff

I use AtomicFE, I find it very easy to setup and use. And there are heaps of settings to play around with if you want to customise the front-end to your own taste :D
