  • mame rom list

    Guys is there a program that will tell you what each rom zip file game is ? Like I got 4 gig's of roms and I am building up my mame cabinet but I only want a couple of games instead of 3400 ehhehe

    MAME will do it for you. From the command line goto your mame directory and then enter:

    mame -ll > gamelist.txt

    Thats a double lower case L not double one. This will tell mame to create the list of supported games for that version and write the list to the file gamelist.txt, you can use any filename and if you dont use the '> filename' option it will just display it on the screen instead. The list will have the rom name and the game name/description. If you look at the .txt files in your mame/docs directory there is one that lists all the command line commands for mame, this is one of them.

    I just downloaded 108 and tested it to be sure.
    Bite my shiny metal ass!
