In Step by step, all functions completed successfully except for Build MAME databases which crashes with this error:

I have a suggestion: rename the "Machines by Score" filter to "Machines by Rating", to avoid confusing with scores in games.

Thanks for adding the MAME INI/DAT path setting.  This saves a lot of time when configuring the add-on.

All these issues should be fixed now. I did quite a lot of refactoring of the code in the context menu "Setup plugin". Also, I have improved the PDF manual reader (images are extracted once). There are two issues pending: 1) due to non-ASCII characters in some SL ROMs AEL crashes. 2) 3 machines fail to audit due to the location of the sample ZIP files. For a detailed list of all the changes please have a look at the changelog.

The code in master should be pretty close to the final 0.9.9 release. I did a lot of testing but some more testing won't hurt before I upload to the Kodi repo Smile If you find any more issues let me know.
