i just aatempted to play around with mame software entries inside the buildin mameui.
what i tried is:
after starting mame without any commandline parameter the mameui pop up. then i just entered a800 in the search and several atari 800 models appeared in the list. so i choose atari 800 (pal) and the contents of the software list showed up.
no matter which of the files i select from that list gives me anything but this.
in my mame.ini i have the following path configured.
# CORE SEARCH PATH OPTIONS
where in my roms folder is the main mame roms and inside the software folder is the various software list roms seperated in own folders. in my example a800.
if i do the same thing on the command line,
i can select an entry from the software list in the tab menu and the file starts.
so my question is what am i doing wrong to make this work properly from within the mameui aswell?
thanks in advance for any hint
