Re: Scripting news

If the core gets moved in the Wiki, i.e. from consoles to computers, it will be redownloaded in the correct directory only when (alternatively): - something gets changed in the specific repository triggering the repo check/update process (editing the README should be enough) - you delete /media/fat/...

Exactly: you have both 5.0V and 3.3V there and, obviously, with 3.3V the fan spins slowly and is quieter. The acrylic case is cut with a dremel and is kept together by the fan with double tape.

Thank you both for your help it's really appreciated I'm a lot further on than I was. I honestly don't understad your issue very much... my advice is using Notepad++ for editing ini files. Regarding target directories, when MAME_ARCADE_ROMS="true" MRA files will go into_Arcade, while RBF ...

Re: Scripting news

@Sorgelig I see you renamed some old cores releases dirs to _releases, reworked the wiki in order to point some entries to the parent core and now you're deleting the bat files for generating old style ROMs... this leads me to think that MRA is not only the future of arcade cores, but it's the prese...

Is it normal that the update script throws 'Transient errors' and is 'Throwing away bytes'? I also got whole scrolling screens of timestamps. I have the feeling something is wrong. Are you on Wi-Fi?
