Hello everyone
Xbox 360 slim, Corona V2 (nothing but fun/problems)
[h=3][FONT=&quot]Dash: 2.0.16747.0[/FONT][/h] [h=3][FONT=&quot]RGH 2, Coolrunner 3 lite[/FONT][/h] I was able to modify the 360 and it has been running fine for quite some time now. My child is very happy but I decided it was time to relive some of the good old days.


I am having problems running roms using mame360. The n64 and snes emulators run fine.


I have followed this tut http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=3EhGFqzoMvg which uses “Angel0fDeaths MAME360” files I have also tried other tuts as well.



[FONT=&quot]There are some roms included in the files which work fine but I have downloaded some from http://coolrom.co.uk/ ect , only for testing purposes i intend to purchase them, but none of them work. They load to 100% and then it reloads the emulator home page. I have Googled to see if I need to patch them but have [/FONT]


I have also tried using mame from http://www.homebrew-connection.org “EmuCR-MAME-0.72-Release-2”.


File structure:


Xbox HDD:


HDD\EMUS\MAME360 - *also tried just “MAME” *


USB:


“USB”:\Emus\Mame\roms\*SomeGame*

If the roms in the “Angel0fDeaths MAME360” pack work then why not others?


Am I doing something wrong, is there a simple trick or am I just plain stupid? I have search and search. I know some of you clever members on here will be able to help me.


Thank you in advance, any help is welcome and appreciated.

You need the roms for mame v0.72, Mame emulators/roms change so much, that each rom is built for a specific version. there are only like 3078 roms that work in this version, and I have them all, and havnt had a single problem with any of them. Check your favourite torrent site and search for Mame 0.72 roms. You should be able to get them all in one spot, and then you can copy the games you own, and put them on your xbox. For the record, this is the easiest way I have found to find the roms you are looking for, and am not promoting piracy in anyway.

[FONT=&quot]gavin_darkglide I really appreciate you help thank you. I tried your suggestion and it worked. Sadly the game I was looking for (Killer instinct 2) isn’t available for this version. [/FONT]
