Changes.ini?
« on: February 14, 2017, 03:58:14 am »
Mame doesn't support this does it?

With Groovymame having new features each time I upgrade, I find it pretty hard to keep track of my ini changes by memory or by notes.  I was thinking we can tweak hardware specific ini files, like cps2.ini, with a nice short list containing only options of interest, then easily transfer them to a new mame version (usually).  Wouldn't it be handy if we could do the same thing with a global user-changes file?

Or is this possible already and I've just missed it?

You've missed it :) Every single .ini file is an override from the default settings or a lower priority .ini file. If you've not changed it, it doesn't need to be there.
Please don't PM me with support questions. Ask in public so everyone can learn!

Thank you!  I suddenly realise why every ini file I've ever used works as I just described.  I want the hours of my life back.
