problem with my mame cab, need help

Recommended Posts

I cant seem to access the menu anymore on my mame cab. its a pentium 1 I believe. I have asked for help and everyone has been able to help me here. In the past, all I would need to do is plug in my keyboard and press the "tab" button and I would access the games. now, for some reason, the "tab" button wont work at all. I have tried different keyboards but nothing has worked. can someone recommend a fix? thanks!

I would just check your settings first, maybe you accidentally changed it. That has happened to me before when my computer was suddenly unplugged from the wall.

I dont think I can even check my settings. it turns on, I can play all the games but when I want to go to the tab menu, it doesnt let me. I know I may have done something a while ago when I was messing with the settings but now I think I may have deactivated it. Is there a way I can reset it?

Sorry if this is off base, but you could try to things:

 

Pressing different F keys during boot up. Usually F8 will get you into Safe mode, but Ive seen F5-12 access safe mode so i cant say what you need to do for your computer (presumably running windows 95).

 

If that doesn't work, can't you use good old ctrl+alt_delete to end mame? The easiest solution is also the laziest: just re-install MAME and your problem will probably go away.

I wish I knew how to do it on this cab but I dont. I didnt build it. :(

Sorry, I got nothing on ArcadeOS. I suggest just switching to MAMEUI.
