Hi! I’m trying to enable the “External DAT View” option in MAME (current) core, primarily to have history and commands in in-game menu. I’ve followed this guide to the letter, but with no luck. I don’t even know if I have to use history.xml or the old history.dat. In any case, I tried both, amongst all other steps described in the guide.
I have vanilla mame 0.244 and using it I can see the option in menu. The core that I’m using in RetroArch is MAME (current), blocked - so it matches v0.244. I’m on Windows 10 x64 and I’m using Retroarch (latest version 1.10.3).
My question is: how should I organize files in system\mame directory to have history and command, and MAME info, as I have in vanilla MAME? Because the aforementioned guide does not work at all with recent MAME core. Is even the libretro core capable of that feature? I would like to get some info on this, and possibly a clear explanation of how organize files and folders in system\mame directory. I only get cheats to work, at the moment.
Thanks in advance!
