LaunchBox Tutorials - Emulating the Arcade (MAME)

By SentaiBrad, 05/12/2016

Today's tutorial is one that has been requested frequently! MAME is a tricky beast, so we apologize if anything is missing or needs to be clarified in any way. If you do want clarification or have questions about the tutorial, leave them as comments down below and we'll answer them all. I go through importing your MAME rom set through LaunchBox using our MAME importer and a solution for power users that provides a bit more information and flexibility when it comes to importing your MAME games. I explain a bit about what MAME is and go over the prominent emulator MAME and it's forked core in RetroArch. Both offer pro's and con's so you'll need to decide which emulator you would want to use for your own set up.

iam having Problems with my Launchbox /Retroarch Setup:

When i want to start a Mame 2003 Rom (0.78) in Retroarch with the 2003 Libretto Core it starts right up and i can play the game.

When i want to launch a Mame 2003 Rom throught BigBox/Launchbox with the 2003 Libretto Core in place nothing happens... even Retroarch doesnt start...

What iam missing here?
