  • MameWah help

    I have added a ROM into my mame/roms directory, but when I launch MameWah the ROM is not displayed in the Game List. How do I re-generate my Game List in MameWah?

    Press player 2 start button while at the frontend.
    It opens a menu box.
    Use joystick to move and player 1 start button to select/make changes.

    Player 2 to escape.

      I have navigated through all the menu items but nothing is causing the Game List to be re-generated. Is there a specific menu that I have to open?

        Its in their somewhere.
        I haven't used Mamewah for ages but I think it was in the 2nd to last in the 1st list, hit player 1 and then go to re-generate list.

        If you do this and it still doesn't show you prolly have a rom, mame version compatibility issue.

          I opened the menu from the main MameWah screen by pressing 2, then scrolled down to the option "Games List Options" and pressed 1. In the Games List Options window, I scrolled down to the option "Generate Filtered List..." and pressed 1. In the Generate Filtered List window, I pressed 2, then pressed 2 twice to get back to the main screen. The Game List had not been re-generated. The ROM that I expect to see is TMNT, and I have confirmed it is compatible with the MAME version by running the game from the command line.

              There are no filters, everything is selected for display (Clones, Manufacturers etc).

                  I've tried Mala, AtomicFE, GameEx, Mame32 and MameWah. Each of the FE's have their good and bad points, but once I understood how to configure MameWah, I found it suited my requirements better than than the other FE's. Except of course for re-generating game lists

                      Yep, other existing ROMs are showing up in the list, and I can play those directly from MameWah. But when I add a new ROM to the mame\roms directory, I can't re-generate the list to display the newly added ROM(s)

                        mmmmmmm.

                        IIRC some games require all the different roms, incl clones, to show in the list.

                        I remember this being a problem for me with Moon Patrol until I added both mpatrol and mpatrolw.

                          I dont really understand exactly what you pressed.
                          When you open the menu scroll down to the "Games List Options"
                          There should be three things???
                          Add Game to List
                          Remove Game From List
                          Generate List

                          You need to press the third one "Generate List"

                          Is this what you have done...

                          Otherwise what is your list generation method in your ini files

                            That is exactly what I did, but the games are not appearing in the list. The list generation method in the MameWah\config\mame\mame.ini file is "rom_folder_vs_listxml".

                              Sorry I'm a little confused from the above post...Are you using filtered lists...Do you have more than one list set up in your mamewah?
