Launching NES carts in MAME not working.
« on: December 19, 2017, 04:51:58 pm »
Hi guys. I like to launch my mame games from individual batch files. I can get my batch files to launch snes, Atari 2600, and Master System games, but for some reason nes games are not launching.

What is the exact command line for launching nes games?

For example I'm trying to launch Rad Racer. My bat file looks like this:

mame64.exe nes -cart C:\MAME0192SoftROMs\nes\radracer.zip

All my xml files are in the hash folder and my rom set is good per MAME Audit. Game works fine when launched from QMC2 or MAME itself. What is incorrectly typed in my command line above?

Your options are correct, at least they work for me with MAME/MESS 177. Maybe the zip file needs to be extracted for the command line to work? None of my NES roms are zipped - they all have a .nes extension.

Run the command from a command line and see what errors MAME tells you.

also use the "-verbose" command as some errors aren't apparent without it.
