mame help

Im a mame noob. Never used it becouse the CMD stuff put me off.

Can anyone recomend a version of MAME that has a gui? Can anyone tell me if all MAME versions suport the same arcade boards? Like if I pick any random version of MAME thats upto date will it run X game or is it like any other emu were you would have to have 8 versions of an emu just to play all the games from that system?

Any help would be apriciated. Links welcome to resources.

MAME = Removed from PC.

Don't give up yet! Which games did you want to work? There are modified versions of MAME which support games the official MAME build doesn't (MAME PLUS).
There are also offshoot emulators that support newer arcade games (Nebula & Kawaks).

They do. They even support neogeo roms etc. Problem is some older roms wont work with newer emulators. So if you borrowed a bunch from somewhere you'd be better off finding a place to download them again. Also make sure you have the program properly configured.

Fairly simple actually. You only have to worry about a couple areas. Firstly making sure in the options the rom folder path is actually pointing to where your roms really are and not the default always wrong setting the program comes with, and mess with the control configuration and some graphic stuff. They're all in the options tabs. Very easy once you look at it.

Well that stuff is obvious, I mean paths are the first thing that you do in an emulater....

Anyways, I think I have gone back to MUGEN. Its been years since I messed with it but I happened to find out last night that someone leaked the windows xp beta that never got finished and the communinty has sprung back to life a bit.
