That looks fine. Post your mame.ini file, chances are you don't have the rompath defined there.

I didn't realize that I needed to define the Rom path on Mame on top of setting it on attract mode. You are absolutely correct, Progets. It started working after I set the Rom path on Mame. I really appreciate the help.

Happy Gaming Everyone!!!
