When I load other Tunnels of Doom games like Daring Adventures in Kmart it runs a script that chooses characters and names for me.  How do I get around that.  Pressing tab doesn't bring up the menu like it does in mame how do I bring up the menu?

Scroll Lock toggles 'Tab' key behavior for computer emulation.

I don't know how to do that.  I am running gamebase ti99 4a and the cc99 won't load the games automatically and I can remove the tunnels of doom cartridge from it.

 

I did fn + c and it caused the mouse to stop responding and a please wait script sending commands to the keyboard to be stuck on the screen. I had to restart my system

As mentioned, The Scroll Lock key is the default mapping for Windows for MAME/MESS to toggle machines which use a fully emulated keyboard.  You need to active what is known as UI_ACTIVE as either a command-line trigger or edit the .ini file and change the 0 to a 1.  Doing this will start your emulation in partial emulation mode in which normal UI commands are accepted when pressed as well as the emulated keyboard.  Should you want to remap while in emulation, hit TAB -> Input Settings -> Input Assignments (general) -> User Interface and then check the list for UI Toggle and change it from default to your desired key/key combo.
