Open terminal, go to the directory where you compiled MAME, type

Code:
./mame -cc


and you should have a mame.ini file created

i know you can manually create one like etabeta78 said, but unless it is different on mac, shouldn't simply running sdlmame create a default INI file?

No version of MAME that I'm aware of automatically creates mame.ini. cfg files, sure, but not mame.ini.

I was able to fix this, thanks. But i have another problem now. Mame won't recognize the Rompath as stated in the other thread
