Artwork/Overlays not displaying
« on: July 23, 2016, 12:02:40 PM »
I'm new to mGalaxy (I'm using 6.0 on a Win 10 PC), but for some reason, I'm having a difficult time figuring out how to make overlays/artwork display while the game is being played. Certain games such as Armor Attack (armora), and Warrior (warrior) are impossible to play without the overlays. I've got my artwork files in the appropriate folder (in the MAME folder), but they aren't displaying when I play.

Please advise, or point me at a thread where this has been already addressed (I searched, but was unsuccessful). Thanks!

Idk, I have made a try with armor attack.
All works fine with the artwork (bezels + overlay) zip file in the artwork folder (not in the MAME folder), but even if I delete this file, I can play to game, the overlay is still here (but in full screen), just missing the bezels.

Take a look in your mame.ini file.

Edit:
Ha yes, there is 2 sort of artwork depend of mame version, >> http://mrdo.mameworld.info/mame_artwork_faq.php

I completely forgot that older versions of MAME (I like 0105b because it's less finicky) use older versions of Artwork. I had downloaded an artwork pack somewhere a while back, which must have been for a newer version of MAME. I just now downloaded some from mrdo and they work perfectly.

Thank you, very much, Aeliss. This was a bad case of brainfade.
