I have a lot games MAME in Attract Mode, but i have this games(zip) with this names:

aliensyn
archrivl
atetris
ghouls

But my Artworks/snaps have this names (Full names/Right names):

Alien Syndrome
Arch Rivals
Ghouls N' Ghosts

My doboult is, have a way the Attract Mode loads right this, art games?

I try put the Bally Astrocade in Attractmode using MAME, and MAME have diferent names(Compact names) and the arts have Full names...

Generally for this to work well the arts must use the same names as roms, if it's different it won't appear

Ex: Rom = astrobat.zip - Snap = astrobat.mp4

arthurvalenca is correct. The videos need to be named the same as the roms.

That being said what is happening i think is AM is trying to make the closest match based on how the snap is spelled. I would suggest that you make Bally Astrocade a different emulator and use and folder path to that system's roms and artwork outside of mame's path completely (if you have not done that already). You can still use mame just treat it as a different emulator.
