    I've been trying to get MAME to work for a while, but I'm having a gigantic issue. Every time I try to play a rom, the app freezes and boots me back to the homebrew channel. I've tried several games that are confirmed working and I'm positive I have the correct roms, but so far nothing has helped.


    To be more specific, the rom shows that it's loading, but then crashes. I haven't seen an ounce of gameplay.

    Hmm...I was hoping someone with a bit more insight could help out. All I can give is a few basic pointers:

    -are you using the latest version? (0.6 at the moment of writing
    -do you have IOS58 installed? (apparently, it uses this IOS for faster loading).
    -do you have the correct romset? I think this should be .135...but I may very well be mistaken (someone confirm/deny, please?)
    -are you using roms that are listed in this compatability list?

    I doubt the above contains anything you haven't already checked...but I can't add more than that. [​IMG]
