Do you have an idea how to read the Documentation?

And for those of you playing along at home, Brad could have also answered:

"I know where you can put the .chd file."

But if you got the correct answer, give yourself 10 points.

What? I think you got that wrong. It's suppose to be "documents/MacMAME/Hard Disk Images/area51/area51.chd" Tho' I wonder if you're using MAME not MacMAME.

Huh?

Yes, MacMAME is MAME for the Mac. If you want helpful answers, can you try to make sense and not take three posts to say anything, and stop talking about the same thing in a million threads.

I can think of numerous faintly ribald responses to the above, but I think the most important thing is that you're in the wrong place.

This is the MacMAME message board, which is why there is a large MacMAME logo in the top left-hand corner of the page. If you are using a version of MAME that isn't for Apple Macs, then you really need to look elsewhere. www.mame.net for example.

That said, Brad's original comment (i.e. read the instructions which came with the MAME application, whatever flavour it may be) still holds, and is probably more likely to be useful than posting plaintive messages on discussion fora.

Just goes to prove, that even though we're communicating by the written word more than ever before, it doesn't mean our literacy rate is improving any.

The same guy showed up on mame.net. Someone eventually pried out of him that his area51.chd is 6 megs. Mwahahahahahaha.
Posted By: Nathan Strum Re: area51 - 08/13/05 04:52 AM
Well, at least it was a nice, fast download. wink
