In the dev_hdd0 create a folder called ROMS (all capital) and in there i created the folders "mame_data" and "mame" and put all my rom zip files in the "mame" folder. all the games showed up on the next start of MAME...
Okay, I noticed on the source code change page there are lots of great changes already added. Anybody know how or have the time to write a guide to compiling and creating the package? It would be fine to just compile, install this version to setup the file structure, and then copy the newly compiled files over the top of the others via FTP.
I may dig into it some if I get some time tonight after a beverage fest as it would be really cool to try out some of the latest feature like auto frame skip, fixed prompt to find ROMs, cheats, and more "options" support in the menu. Don't go ballistic on the cheats comments as this is only in MAME and has nothing to do with killing the PSN, PS3 or Sony!
Are there any developers out there that can do a simple how-to or is this different not so simple?
awesome keep up the good work! I seriously can't wait to play in the hunt, biomechanical toy, charlie ninja, joe and mac, dyna gear and many other great arcade games on my ps3! sweet.
today I had the chance to take a look at mame v0.142 and to my surprise (considering it's still a preview) most games ran pretty smooth and without any problems. however games like in the hunt, gun force II, undercover cops had major performance issues. i also had to use /dev_hddo/ROMS/mame to make it launch otherwise it just showed up an error message. changing the rom path however failed (mame just crashed)....
stuff i'd like to see in the near future: different ratios (16:9), hd crt shaders (beautiful aren't they), save states and more overall performance to play my favorite games.
anyway thanks to the developers for making all this possible!

i tried everything, need help please.. step by step instructions. i have the mame emulator installed, don't see the roms same for all emulators.
for mame copy zipped rom images to /dev_hdd0/ROMS/mame (case sensitive)
you can use multiman [SELECT + START] to create dirs and copy files from a USB stick or follow this:
1) on FAT32 USB stick create folder 'ROMS' (uppercase)
2) in folder ROMS create folder 'mame' (lowercase)
3) copy *.zip images into folder mame
4) plug USB stick to PS3
5) start multiman and press [SELECT + START]
6) select dev_hdd0 on right pane and press [X]
7) select dev_usb000 on left pane and press [X]
8) now select ROMS on left pane and press [O] to copy ROMS/mame/* to /dev_hdd0
9) exit multiman, start mame and you should be happy
