Finally, from comango (via tortuga-cove.com/forums/viewtopic.php?f=21&p=38848#p38848) comes a new MAME 0.125 front end who states the following:

Hi there, I've made another MAME-port with frontend (linked above). It's based on MAME 0.125.

Create a folder name "MAME" on /dev_hdd0 or /dev_usb000. Then create three subfolders, "ROMs", "snap" and "samples". Copy your files there.

Root Internal

  • dev_hdd0 / MAME / ROMs
  • dev_hdd0 / MAME / samples
  • dev_hdd0 / MAME / snap

Root External

  • dev_usb000 / MAME / ROMs
  • dev_usb000 / MAME / samples
  • dev_usb000 / MAME / snap
  • and iso/DVD

dev_dbvd/PS3_GAME/USRDIR/ ROMs samples snap

You can create an .iso emulator or burn it to DVD and run the roms from these.

Note: You must run the emulator on the XMB (the .pkg) packages and select the route dev_dbvd / PS3_GAME / USRDIR / (iso/DVD) to load roms mounted .iso or DVD, because if you run it directly from the .iso or dvd it digs.

Sorry for my bad English.. you can also manually edit the path in the Init.ini file (MAME00125/USRDIR/Init.ini), to avoid duplication with other arcade roms emulators, but the MAME / ROMs route must always be present for this emulator, eg:

isodir = / dev_ms / ROMS / fba / MAME
isodir = / dev_sd /
isodir = / dev_hdd0 /
isodir = / dev_usbXXX /
isodir = / dev_cf /

Update: Hi folks, I just noticed my frontend has experienced some attention, so I registered here to give you a link (linked above) to a package that contains the frontend discussed above along with the snapshot folder, a readme explaining the usage AND the source code. BTW, I'm running FW 4.65 (HABIB) v1.02.

Have fun and MERRY CHRISTMAS everyone!

This is great news! I have been waiting a long time for this. Now I just have to find time to try it. Of course, I am sure my MAME cabinet is feeling nervous now as the dust starts to settle on it.

This is how you get it to work:

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...

hope all the games work too

rep me up if this helped.
