    playing off usb

    Hello,
    I've got a usb question. I can play sdl mame games off of the sd card fine, but I'm a little confused as how to play off of usb. Can anyone point me out to where I should be? Is having the usb formatted to wbfs a problem? How cool is it playing gun games like "operation wolf" with the wii zapper?

    You need a FAT16 or FAT32 partition on you HDD. I don't know of any way to effectively way to resize a WBFS partition without destroying it.

    right on. thanks for the reply...okay lets's say i redo with FAT32 and forget wbfs like I was planning anyway. How would I go about loading the sdl mame from the usb. would i still load the progrman from SD and then have my roms on the usb?

    If your drive is FAT32 you can just put it all on your HDD. That's one of the nice things about having a full FAT32 drive.

    so apparently I can run SDL MAME off of the SD card and it detects the USB and all the ROMS on there...how cool? My little problem right now is trying to navigate away from the roms that start with numbers or A. I cant get into the search field and then I have no way to type. That's what I need is a way to type...any help?

    A USB keyboard is the only way to type. Your ROMs should just show up in order starting with numbers proceeding to the alphabet. How many ROMs are in your folder?

    I have all of my PC MAME ROMS on there (15GB). I know that only fraction will work, but I didn't want to have to keep messing around with dragging a few roms into the folder and then wanting to play something I don't have in the folder so I did them all. I really have never much liked the newest GUI on MAME, preferring the older one where there was a scroll bar on the right. ( I really don't like the GUI without a keyboard) But any usb keyboard and I'll be good to go, correct? My goal is to have all my wii games and all the major emulators and ROMS on my hard drive.

    You're limited to 150 ROMs with SDL MAME Wii. If you put more than 150 ROMS in your folder the emulator will only recognize and play the first 150 titles. There is no way around it. As far as the keyboard I've tried three different keyboards I had laying around on my Wii and it only recognizes and works with one of the three.

    i have a question for darkcide666.....i have the newest version of mame. v.06 and i have about 80 roms that work good. now i have a couple of sd cards and 1 usb stick. i find that its a little slow loading when i use a sdhc 8g versus a 4g sd card. is there certain sd card or usb stick that might load the fastest and play a little better. one of my fav games on the mame is battletoads arcade. ive played it but its a little choppy as far as music and gameplay, its most def. playable but i was wondering having the best device for faster loading. any thoughts??
