Command line parameters for MAME ?
« on: June 23, 2018, 08:43:25 AM »
Is there a way to add command line parameters for MAME ?
For some reason all my roms are at -15 for volume and I want to set them to max (Value 0) with the command line option "-volume 0"
If I addd this to the end of the executable mGalaxy does not like it and disables MAME.
Is there a way to do this ?
By the way - I can find the setting in any of the MAME ini files for my version of MAME
Do you remember the site "MAME ROM Links" ? - That was me way back then.....

OK - found that it was actually being set by mGalaxy in the preferences window !
Out of interest - is it possible to manually pass command line options via mGalaxy ?

You can't pass command line to mgalaxy but you can pass "custom" command line to emulators, check the file mGalaxy\Data\UserSystems\UserSystems.xml

Is there a way to have custom parameters for individual games? (Specifically for Daphne if it's different per system)

Herrr, I don't remember if it's possible for daphnee, I think not.
I think the only one solution is using script, with something like that

Code: AutoIt
  1. If StringInStr($command,"game") Then $command = $command & "special option"

to add other params at the end.
