Sorry you are having so much trouble. There must be a mismatched/corrupted rom version/file or wolfmame file giving you trouble (everything linked on MARP should work fine since they verified it for the bounty already). Also, if there is a /nvram directory in your main wolfmame-0152 folder then delete that and see if anything changes?

I still have another 10,000,000+ game you could check out. Maybe give this older MARP submission a try w/the GUI version of Wolfmame .104 (higher score actually but ZLK's "1 credit finish bounty" had to be on a more recent version of Wolfmame). This time its just point and click (the .INP file can be anywhere because you can "browse" to select it). Note: this is on the Europe Rev 3 romset of Toobin' not the US Rev 3 one. Different wolfmame version too:

(1) 10,756,727 points ::: Sat 4/12/14 Wolfmameplus-104 (GUI) finish @ Nightmare River Class 6-5 (All letters by the end of Class 3 and x5 bonus end Class 3>6) (by the skin of my teeth)
(1) http://replay.marpirc.net/inp/c/c/7/jky_toobine_10756727_wolf104.zip
(1) http://wolfmame.marpirc.net/wolfmameplus-0104.exe

After install: Double click the mame32 plus! 0.104 file. Then select Atari's Toobin' Europe, rev 3. Then at the top left tool bar click on "File", "Playback Input...". Browse and select the JRKtoobine10756727finished.inp file + click and off you go (hopefully this time!).

Note: I get all the Toobin' letters in this game but there is no T-shirt award splash screen because it is European version (only US version had the contest option ON).

Good luck!

If Toobin' runs fine from the command window (just mame toobin+enter) then that is just the normal game you can play without playback enabled (you were just watching the game's attract mode not any of my playback .INP file action). You are almost there.

Double check that you have an "inp" folder in your wolfmame-0152 directory (use windows explorer). If not create that folder (right click option + lowercase like the other MAME folders).

Then download and unzip the jky_toobin_10578390_wolf152.zip file from that MARP link into the "inp" folder you created (it should be a 1.67 MB file unziped as JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp). Go back to the main wolfmame-0152 directory and return to the command line again (via shift+right click). Then try typing this again+enter:

mame toobin -playback JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp

You may have to hit enter or type "ok" at the initial MAME screen that comes up.Then it should playback my recording including my entering two credits to start the game (you shouldn't see me die right away like the attract mode either...I pick up the letter N right around 124k points on the first river).

(+ if that works fine then copy/cut and paste what you typed on the command line to the playback.bat file using Notepad. Save+close that file then double click on it in the wolfmame-0152 directory to playback w/o using CMD line)

Just replace -playback with -record, and then you can record your own .INP files to share with others (or review like I do to improve my game...change rom/playback file name of course).

enjoy!
(or let me know what error messages if any show in the command window when you try to playback the .inp file)

What version of Windoze do you have?
Re-Command Line Prompt (from Windows Explorer):
http://www.sevenforums.com/tutorials/27778-open-command-window-here.html

(My bad) You may have to hold SHIFT and RIGHT CLICK to see the "open command window here" option appear in the menu (see link above for example). I edited my registery to offer this option without the shift.

Once you can see the command line/wndow (should be your wolfmame directory), try to make sure your version of wolfmame152 is setup properly b4 you try to playback anything (roms + directories). First, try to play Toobin from the command line only by typing:

mame toobin (Toobin' should load if the roms are correct and in the right directory)

If it does not load then what error messages do you see if any? (in command window) You may not have the correct roms or be missing files/wrong directory etc...

If that works then exit the game and go back to the command line after verifying the Toobin' playback .INP files are unzipped in the proper /INP directory. Then, at the command line again, try this+enter :

mame toobin -playback JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp

If it doesn't work you should get some error message. If so what does that say?

If that does work then go back and double check with Notepad that your "playback.bat" file is the same as what you typed in at the command line:
mame toobin -playback JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp

Save and close that file + make sure it is in the main /wolfmame152 directory and try to double click it. Does it work now?

The whole command line thing can be a bit confusing. But it is worth it to watch playback direct on the emulator (as opposed to video of it) where you can verify settings and options for yourself (+pause and fast forward to some degree).

If the archive does not generate an "inp" folder just create your own and place the playback files there ...sorry for any confusion with the new versions of Wolfmame (takes a few non obvious steps to get going sometimes). I prefer the GUI versions myself but I had to use a specific version for the MARP bounty I was trying to win at the time.

This is the version of wolfmame I used:
http://wolfmame.marpirc.net/wolfmame-0152.7z

It must be the same version of mame/wolfmame to work.
Playback files go in the "inp" folder.

http://replay.marpirc.net/playback.htm

Place/Unzip the JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp file into the WOLFMAME 0.152 playback/record folder (/inp). Right click on your main WOLFMAME 0.152 folder and then click on "Open Command Window Here". At the CMD prompt type/paste+enter:
mame toobin -playback JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp
(during playback you can use F10 to "throttle" the game speed=fast forward)

OR

Download the MARP generic playback.bat template file from here (+ place in your main WOLFMAME directory):
http://replay.marpirc.net/bat/playback.bat

Then open that file with Notepad/text editor and replace everything with:
mame toobin -playback JRKtoobinfinishRev3.inp
(+save and close)
Then just double click that playback.bat file and away you go...

enjoy!
