I know this thread is a bit older, but I have a question. I can't seem to create the mame.ini file. I follow the instructions, and I get this error "'mame' is not recognized as an internal or external command, operable program or batch file".
This is where I'm stuck. Can anyone help? I'm running Windows 2k


1) What version of mame are you running
2) Is in mame or mame32
3) What method did you try
3) What results did you get?

The big question is are you using Mame32, or Mame command line? Mame32 automatically creates an ini file for you on launch, IIRC. If you are using a front end, you should really be using the command line version anyways. Assuming you have the command line version, you need to run mame from a command line with the -cc switch. The error you are getting is most likely due to you not being in the correct directory.

Assuming your Mame directory is located in C:\Mame, you would type the following at a command line, or click on Start, then Run for Windows machines:

C:\Mame\Mame.exe -cc

That's it! A few seconds later, you will have a nice, shiny and new mame.ini file located in your Mame directory.
