You can set show_infoscreens, i think it is, to 0 in mame.ini. But the only way to get rid of all messages is to recompile MAME with the nonag patch, or go to Bandito's site where he posts various builds and grab one from there - https://b4nd1t0.blogspot.com/

IDK about the ui option. Finding the mame.ini options is a real pain. I can find the commandline options on mamedev, and normally you can work backwards from those to see what you should be using in mame.ini, but in this case it makes no sense to me.

ui cabinet = show the mewui (default) frontend on mame

ui simple = show the previous frontend on mame.

I know the option, name and choices make no sense at all.... and that mame's documentation, what there is of it, is severely lacking, and that's being nice about it..
The problem is that there's over 300 options in mame.ini (which is madness in itself), new ones get added all the time, and nobody has the time to say what they do.

Thank you for the info!

Would you know how to get the TAB menu to rotate? I've tried rotation options in mame.ini for Mame inside of GrovyArcade 2017 and it won't budge.

total brain fart on the GUI rotation.. I forgot that just like a real arcade monitor on the neck you can swap the X and Y to do rotation.. When you boot up a new PCB or arcade monitor donor from another machine you sometimes need to do this..

Well MAME has the same flip X and Flip Y options. you can enable both and guess what.. You have flipped the whole game and TAB menu. ... Can't believe I forgot that..
