How to enable freeplay

Post by jasonatjones » Thu Jul 15, 2021 4:05 am

I currently use the pre-defined hot-key sequence to 'insert credits'. I want to enable freeplay by default (for those games that allow it). I see in the documentation that I need to set misc_freeplay yes, and i tried that in /boot/config.txt, but to no avail. Where (which file) do I edit to set that?

That only works for AdvMAME, other MAME versions need to be set manually using the MAME menu dipswitch submenu while the game is running.

For AdvMAME that setting goes in /home/pi/.advance/advmame.rc (and advmame.nosdl.rc too). You may need to go through the file in case the setting is already there as having a duplicate setting in the rc file can make AdvMAME stop working.
