you've made it farther than I have recording MAME. 

kernzy, aren't you able to make a .inp file & have it playback?

shy don't you do that and then record the playback with your capture software?  that's what I do whenever the recording is bogging down my game.  my problem with MAME videos is I can't seem to make a playback file.  there's another movie option in MAME too & I failed to make it work as well.

.....................

you also beat my best score ever on Defender: 42k... cheers!

@S.BAZ:

if i record a playback, it comes out the same!
i will try again.
what do you mean can't you get a game to playback? inp?
other movie option, WMV?  I tried that, was much worse!  game did not even work!

@kernzy:

I suck at making & using .inp's.

one time i got one to play back for me with some tutoring from one of the gamers here. 

the other option, "Record Movie -- Shift F12"  doesn't work for me so far.   8/

@kernzy:

ya recording a playback might still come out choppy but at least it doesn't mess the game up while playing..

@kernzy:

I think so, yes.  mamep106gui-vc.exe

although after giving up I just go back to 148.

@S.BAZ:

so your using wolfmame 106.
it should be the same as for mameplus 148.
left click game name once to highlight it, click file/play and record input.

when done, to replay, click file/playback input. then locate the inp, it is in the inp folder.

@kernzy:

thanks!

well here is my problem when following your 148 instructions:

all of the games on the list have little slashes through them apparently indicating they are not available.  even the ones I have roms for in the "roms" folder. 

if I go through with it anyway, it starts & I get a black screen for a moment & then just back to the little window again.

@S.BAZ:

you may need fresh roms.
click file/audit all roms.
when finished, click the "available" tab in the left column, thats what you can play.
do the same roms work in 106?

@kernzy:

hmm, nope.  still won't play.  I clicked "audit all games" and it gave me feedback saying most of them are "correct."  it also removed the slashes for the roms I have in the folder.  it appears it is accepting the same ones that 148 & 152 also accept.  however, it still won't play them.  it just tries and then gags & sits back down.  frown

ok, go to options/default game options.
click advanced (or whatever is needed), and change "video output method" to "diredt draw".

@kernzy:

ok I found that "Advanced" Tab under "Default Game Options."

I see uner that tab, the box that says "Use DirectDraw" is already checked.
