I've built a bartop on which there is mounted a miniPC to run MAME.

Since I need to upgrade mame without having to deal with keyboard too much, I've created a set of scripts to automatically accomplish the installation task.

Here are some features:

  • Download mame from given url
  • Extract mame archived file to output directory
  • Generate mame executable shortcut file
  • Generate mame.ini and write entries taken from paths.lua
  • Generate ui.ini and write entries taken from paths.lua
  • Copy default.cfg (if exists) from script directory to mame dir

There are also other scripts for downloading useful data.

I'd appreciate any feedback, thank you smile
