error code on start up of mame
« on: January 16, 2017, 07:19:41 am »
Hi all, desperately need help... on starting my built arcade cabinet as soon as I try to go into mame games it comes up with ERROR READING GAMES LIST FILE.  I am completely computer illiterate so please bear with me. A friend tried helping, he has got into the report file and it reads ERROR; OBJECT CLASS: TFrmMain,object function: loadgamelist, Exception classEFOpenError.
Any ideas anyone? i'm lost but any help would be very appreciated,
Thanks from Darrell

This sounds like an error from your front end, not from MAME.  Are you using Mala?

I suggest upgrading, Mala had a bug that would do this a while back, see here: http://forum.arcadecontrols.com/index.php?topic=113439.0
