Is it possible to select and launch a random game when using MESSUI64? How do you do it?


The developers of MESS have my sincere gratitude. Thank you guys.

The built-in UI selects a random game by default...

For MAME yes, but for MESS it would be a system.

Isn't this kind of like if MAME was treating the Neo-Geo or the DECO Cassette System as if they were individual games?

I mean, perhaps this is something that also needs to be "unified" between MAME and MESS?

You can operate the Neogeo and Megatech in MAME that way by launching the bios sets. With Megatech you can even insert multiple cartridges like you can for things with multiple slots in MESS.

I've suggested in the past making them soft-list exclusive like MESS systems, but the idea wasn't a popular one, I guess because things like MAMEUI won't really like it.

Personally I think it would be good as it would educate people on the syntax needed for using most basic MESS systems, and it avoids having 2 copies of the megatech carts (one in MAME, one in the softlist) It might even help get people off MAMEUI and onto something like QMC2 if they realise it's the only proper way to launch NeoGeo, but I can't see it being completely unified any time soon due to opinions of some other devs.

By the way. I hate double sets. Totally waste spaces. smile

If the other Dev let you then moved those over onto the softwarelist. Won't hurt anyone to use a command line or ini or QMC2 to run those.
