Having burrowed deeper into the retrohole and trying out all the various different solutions I find myself returning to this addon for it’s simplicity, it could be even simpler though. All it needs to do is to point to the mame folder and from there key off the mame.ini and ui.ini to find the paths for everything, I presume the catver.ini files and other ini’s would live in the category path normally ‘folders’. The ideal would be to show all the same info the mame ui has (plus video snaps). So you could get mame configured properly in the built in ui then in kodi enter a single path in the addon, hit go and done.

Is it still being worked on

Hi ConvertApple,

Trailers will be available in the next version. However, note that IARL has its own customised database (withe pre-scraped artwork/trailers) whereas AML extracts the database for the MAME version you have. In AML you need to download artwork/trailers yourself from Pleasuredome or EmuMovies.

I will think about your suggestion about reading mame.ini and ui.ini. Also, keep in mind that in Windows all MAME stuff is inside the MAME folder you download in the ZIP file but in other operating systems (Linux) MAME stuff is kept and separated in several folders. I have to think in a solution that make every user happy.
