Possible variables in emulator.cfg? Want to add [date]
« on: August 27, 2016, 03:53:35 PM »
There are some MAME competitions that require you to record your MAME game play. I would like to add a [date]variable to emulators.cfg.

Does someone have a list of variables that can be added into the emulator.cfg file? Is it possible to have a [date] variable?

For example I currently have
Code: [Select]
args      [name] -rec [name]
As you can tell every time I play a game again the .inp file will be overwritten.

I thought I could use a batch script however, I don't know how to pass [name] to the batch script.

Your help is appreciated.
Thanks.

In the meantime I have just written a batch script that solves my problem however,  I'm still interested in knowing what variables can be passed in the emulators.cfg file.
