Config MAME emulator on M1 Mac

(1/4) > >>

DaveInFL:
Just downloaded AM for my M1 Mac and I have tried to set up an emulator for MAME.  I've gone over things several times and gone through several google results, but all to no avail.  Whenever I choose to Generate Collection/Rom List in my emulator it always comes back with 0 results.  I'm going crazy here as to why it won't work, all the directories are correct.  I've checked them over and over.  This is my Mame.cfg file:

# Generated by Attract-Mode v2.6.1
#
executable           $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/mame
args                 [name]
workdir              $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/
rompath              $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/roms/
romext               .zip
system               Mame
info_source          listxml
exit_hotkey          Escape
pause_hotkey         $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/artwork
artwork    artwork         $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/artwork
artwork    cabinets        $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/cabinets
artwork    marquee         $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/marquees
artwork    snap            $HOME/Documents/EMUs/mame64/snap

Is this a known issue? Why doesn't something as basic as generating the ROM list work?  Am I missing something stupid?

Any help would be much appreciated.

Remove the stuff you don't need and change the system from "Mame" to "Arcade". Something like this

Once you get it working you can add other options if you want.

Tried that, didn't make any difference whatsoever. Generate Collection comes back with "Wrote 0 entries to Collection/Rom List"

Can you generate the listxml file from the command line?

DaveInFL:
Yes, I did that and then ran the command line to generate the ROM list.  That worked, so that's good news :) Still, not sure why it would not work in the app itself.

Now, the next issue is that it is not displaying any of the graphics (snaps, cabinets, etc) nor will it start MAME.  Again, I have checked the directories and they are correct.  Very surprised that this is not working.  I must be doing something stupid, but I've gone through a few HOW TO posts and I believe I have done everything correctly.
