-skip_disclaimer "unknown option"
« on: April 16, 2006, 02:17:56 pm »
I've done a ton of searching on this, and I'm having to resort to starting a thread around here.  Aw well, hope it works out...

I'm running the latest version of mame (though I had the same problem with an older version) and the -skip_disclaimer option when starting MAME does not work, it just gives a parse error.  I have tried to get the same thing done by using a mame.ini file, and I got something similar (it ignored it rather than aprupt the whole thing)

I do know a little bit of C, so if I have to dig into the source a little bit and recompile, that is not impossible with a little pointing in the right direction.

By the way, -skip_gameinfo works, and -skip_warnings does not. (same symptoms

Any help is appreciated, of course.

Thanks,
spongebue

It's been removed.
I have changed my nickname to "Cakemeister". Please do not PM the Buddabing account because I do not check it anymore.

Please read the wiki!

Awww, dernit!  Oh well, I was able to just copy Mame over from another computer I have, and that works well enough :)

btw, it was removed because it only shows up once per game now.  It's not that bad...

You can recompile mame to remove the disclaimer...

I just recompiled mame .106b with the skip_disclaimer and skip_warning re-enabled in the config file... if anyone wants it, PM me and I'll email it to you.
