I know you asked how to do this without RL but I want to make sure that you know that you can use RL with AM if your happy with your RL setup. http://forum.attractmode.org/index.php?topic=2401.msg16418#msg16418

Well I am not sure what the problem is. However as I said...

If you will use the gamesbd as an info source (i.e. info_source thegamesdb.net not info_source  listxml) when you build the list the list should contain long names even if you use mame roms for coleco vision on mame.

But that does not explain why you attract mode config is not working...  :-\

Could you post your mame.ini file please? specifically just these parts so that i can see your path setup please

# CORE SEARCH PATH OPTIONS
#
homepath                  .
rompath     M:\Emulators\mameplus\   <-make sure you have this
hashpath     
samplepath   
artpath     
ctrlrpath     
inipath     
fontpath                 


I tired with my mame after changing my rom path and AM will not work... Put the right path in in the correct place and it works fine

if you need to make an ini file go to your mame directory and type
Code: [Select]
mame -cc


Code: [Select]
#
# CORE SEARCH PATH OPTIONS
#
homepath                  .
rompath                   roms
hashpath                  hash
samplepath                samples
artpath                   artwork
ctrlrpath                 ctrlr
inipath                   .;ini;ini/presets
fontpath                  .
cheatpath                 cheat
crosshairpath             crosshair
pluginspath               plugins
languagepath              language
swpath                    software

I think, if i have any path error, the 2020.zip dont will work, but works!! and every game with short name works, only the big names dont...

try changing
Code: [Select]
rompath      roms
 to

Code: [Select]
rompath     M:\Emulators\mameplus\   

in your mame .ini and see if that makes a difference..it did for me anyway.

People want life easy..then complain about it

Wait a minute *facepaw*


wrong path!


put this in as your rom [path] instead

Code: [Select]
rompath           "M:\Emulators\Colecovision\Colecovision rom\"
(that was my fault for not paying attention sorry!)  :-X
