  • Could you play mame onto a usb drive?

    geez I have been bored at work latley. I can't really surf the net that much without getting busted. I also can't install programs. I have a few little games on a USB drive that I sometimes play. I was thinking maybe I could load mame and my roms up from there - would that be possibe?

              As mentioned, MAME doesn't need "installation". It only needs to be decompressed from it's zip file and can be run off any media, even a CDROM. Although you won't be able to save your settings, as CDROMs are read-only. But of course you can change settings on the fly as the game runs, or via command-line options.

              There are several projects out there which aim to develop a completely independant, bootable CD or USB device that will load up it's own mini operating system and fire up MAME. One such project is this one:

                  If they have only hidden the command promt, try and make a new shortcut on the screen. just call it command.com

                    If that's the total amount of effort your sysadmin has put into their systems "security", they need to be sacked.

                    Too many goddamn MCSE heros out there.
