TOD Mess batch command

I am trying to make a simple launcher for TOD.

The changes in MESS over the years have me confusified a bit.

 

Any pointers here would be great

 

start mame.exe -cart tundoom.zip -floppydisk tunnels.dsk

 

I have several variations, it the mounting of the PEB's and such

that I am unsure of.

Not a MESS pro here:(

Using MAME .175 / .zip roms

Thank you/

Are you using MESS or MAME and which version.

 

The commands to mount things have changed a bit between versions.

I am trying a few variations of Mess/ Messui and MAME/MESS

 

mizapf you are the MAN! (man, I think:) )

 

Although tried this on MAME .175 and still no go,

 

Mame just starts in 99/4a

 

I believe I have all of the correct roms/ system roms in place for this system.

as it does work otherwise.

Should tunnels.dsk go into the roms folder as well?

It would be helpful if you gave me the error message that you got. Can you launch the console without any extensions (i.e. just mame.exe ti99_4a)?

 

The floppy image should be in the current directory; otherwise you must specify a path (like C:\mame\disks\cartdisks\tunnels.dsk).

No error. Just does not launch properly.

 

Yes the console launches, but that's it.

 

I have a few various forms of mess. Any specific one I should use?

 

I have tunnels.dsk and tundoom.zip in the main directory as this is

For a single .exe launcher for TOD I am trying to create

Just have to get the batch right.

 

Thanks for your time:)

I have been working on a MAME launched called 'OOEYGUI MESS' for Windows systems.

 

you can read about it at the below link and there is a link to download in the first post.

Do you start from a command line? I highly recommend to open a command line, try your MAME start line, and then (and not earlier) write that into a batch file. The reason is that you probably do not see error output unless you use the command line.

 

Do you have a mame.ini file? If not, use mame.exe -createconfig (or -cc). There you will see some path setting at the beginning. Make sure you place the system ROM into the rom directory. Create a ti99_cart directory where you drop the cartridges into. The disk images do not need a special directory but you must provide the path if they are not located in the current directory.

I have MAME1076B installed with all the disks in 'disks' sub-directory and issued the below command works for me from a command prompt. Please remember you need to have your BIOS files in teh correct directory. in my case it's in the 'ROMS' folder under the 'MAME0167B' folder

 

mame64.exe ti99_4a -cart tundoom -peb:slot8 hfdc -flop1 c:\mame0176b\disks\todgames1.dsk

 

I am running 64 bit verison of Mame with no issues.
