Ultrastyle. Need help.
« on: December 09, 2007, 04:01:56 pm »
I desperately want to use Ultrastyle. Unfortunately it has been broken for the longest time and the install always hangs on "Shrinker - Reading LI.txt". I've tried it on 4 different computers with the same result everytime. If anyone has some advice or can zip up and send me their setup files for me, let me know.

Try a version of MAME .84 or lower. IIRC Ultrastyle uses the -listinfo option and it was removed from MAME back then.

I tried on a .64 set I have. how long is it supposed to stay on the shrinking step? Perhaps I'll grab .84 and try again, but how long should i wait? I gave it 45 minutes last time.

Don't grab .84. Grab .83.

I did a fresh install with .83 and it was a snap. Make sure you can get MAME running from the command line before you try installing the frontend. That's because Ultrastyle needs to know MAME's rom path.
