That's perhaps a platform specific bug...

For me what you have to do doesn't make sense according to the rom naming philosophy of MAME/MESS (which doesn't mean i think you made a configuration mistake, hence me thinking of a bug).

Anyway, Kaylee's problem is different as it works fine with MESS and not with QMC2.

Hello René, just a question.
The new file open dialog is not my favorite.
I miss the old file open dialog.

Is it possible to make it selectable between the new and old dialog?

I've just tried and here

Code:
./mess macclasc -hard1 mac608


works perfectly fine without any zipfile involved. it loads and boots fine both if I put mac608.chd in roms/mac_hdd/mac608/, in roms/mac_hdd/ and directly in roms/

The file-dialogs are now the Qt built-in ones because the platform-specific ones are different from platform to platform and desktop system... and the ones from Windows 8 even caused crashes when certain permissions were not met... so I've decided to only use the Qt built-in ones. Actually, that change is not so new smile.

It's possible, but I'd need to add support for it at many places...

Yeah, you've got it -- I'll add it when time permits smile! The problem remains though that users may see unusual behavior just because of the system's own dialogs (which are supposed to be "better", but it's actually more of a problem than a solution wink ).

Yip MESS sees it, as it's set up correctly, only qmc2 doesn't see the chd files

No, QMC2 doesn't "see" anything, it's just the set up of the emulator that counts! Please check working directory and ROM path.

EDIT: the working directory should be the same that you use (implicitly) when you run MESS from the command line!

On a nearly topic, and perhaps you already know it, but i just realized that even if the chds are launched without a problem from QMC2, the softlist checker doesn't see them (grey icon).

What does "mess64 -verifysoftlist <related_soft_list>" return for those entries?
