AHK file for MAME .215?


Recommended Posts

I updated my MAME roms to 215 from 0170 recently, since there are 1/2 more games I'm interested in available now and due to increases in accuracy etc. Just thought it was a good idea, but...

The latest AHK/module file from the downloads section (labelled for 212) seems to not work with 215, but it worked with 0170.

What do I do? Is there a AHK file that works with MAME0215 that I'm missing, or do I need to wait. If so, how long?

(I'm getting the .ahk error that means the .ahk file is out of date. I had this problem with 0170 and sorted it with the 212 .ahk file.)

For anyone coming after me who has this problem, you need to download the latest .ahk file for MAME that's in the downloads section and put it in HyperSpin\Modules\MAME.

I've solved this issue for now by rolling back a few versions - using MAME0210 with 215 roms, and it seems to be fine so far. You can download no-nag versions (removes warnings and machine info on game startup) from the downloads section.

I'm not seeing this file, and I'm pretty sure I'm having the same issue.

I'm setting up a new mame cabinet and using the latest rom set I can find and the latest version of mame and getting this same error.

I'm pretty sure there's something in the AHK that the latest mame version doesn't like.

Can anyone tell me what it is in the AHK to change or if there's a location where I can download the latest. I checked in the downloads section on this site and I'm not seeing it anywhere.

Hi. New here. 


I had the same error with MAME 0.234 using the 212 AHK file. Got the command line from RocketLauncherUI's log and put it in a cmd.exe window and ran the command. Found out that several switches are no longer supported. I edited the file and the .ahk started to work.

The following makes the AHK file work with mame 0.234

;useBezels := If (Use_Bezels = "true") ? " -use_bezels" : " -nouse_bezels"
;useOverlays := If (Use_Overlays = "true") ? " -use_overlays" : " -nouse_overlays"
;useBackdrops := If (Use_Backdrops = "true") ? " -use_backdrops" : " -nouse_backdrops"
;useCpanels := If (Use_Cpanels = "true") ? " -use_cpanels" : " -nouse_cpanels"
;useMarquees := If (Use_Marquees = "true") ? " -use_marquees" : " -nouse_marquees"
useBezels := ""
useOverlays := ""
useBackdrops := ""
useCpanels := ""
useMarquees := ""

      **This removes the nag screen that informs you if a rom doesn't work correctly, or if at all, if you use this no nag, then please do NOT go to the mame support site with issues with games, please only use if you understand that there will be no help from anyone at mamedev as you are using a modified version of mame.
      mame.exe - Normal Mame with Nags removed. For Version 0.238 (Note mame no longer carries the 64 in its exe name changed by Devs in 0.229)
      It's advisable to download the full 0.238 official pack and install it, then just overwrite the exe with the replacement, this covers any changes the mame devs may have made to the support files.
      After you have done this, make sure you copy the folders artwork, ctrlr, cheat, hlsl, ini, folders and the ini files from the root of your original mame folder, and move/copy them to the new install.  
      make sure in the mame.ini file you have  the following set.

      Can anyone tell me how to fix this issue?
      No matter what game im in, if I hit the coin button 3 or more times rapidly it exits the game back to the wheel.  I looked everywhere in Hyperspin and Mame itself.  I already have an exit button programed.  
      I would appreciate any help.  thank you.. and yes.. tried searching this before posting but couldnt find any help.  Maybe I searched incorrectly.

      I bought it in 2015 but adding constantly mods and software.
      Finally I added extra leds, light guns and a custom integration with HyperSpin described here : https://github.com/cboudereau/ArcadeCab
      I also added more and more emulators, updated the hardware and used a Logitech Z5500 digital.

      Good Morning,
      I've been a member on here for a good part of 7 years. I have a Hyperspin arcade machine running on Windows 7 however, everything I have is outdated - MAME, DAPHNE, FUTURE PINBALL, etc. I need to have the Hyperspin, roms and its components updated. I would like to keep Windows 7 installed if possible. I'd like to hire someone on here to properly configure and update all of my stuff that I use. I've got way to much on my plate to do it myself as I've been taking care of my son who is recovering from COVID.

      If anyone is interested and knows EXACTLY what they're doing, drop me a message.
      Be well and stay safe from COVID-19.
