Does Arcade support the viewing of DAT files ingame such as Command,dat and GameInit.dat. I can see the DAT file information in the GUI before launching a game but not within the in game menus where you can configure the controller mapping and select dip switches.

It shows for me.

I selected Street Fighter II Championship Edition (sf2ce), press Tab, chose External DAT View, and there's the info.

You may have to configure ini\ui.ini to point to your DAT folder.


The only difference is that the External DAT View shows the command buttons with special symbols, but the GUI is not able to display those symbols.

Looks ok to me, assuming the dat files are in the dats folder.


You might need to check ini\ui.ini, rather than .\ui.ini

I'm not sure what you mean. The INI that I copied and pasted above is in the INI folder and the file is named UN.INI

He's probably having the same problem that I reported.

I tried the fix I read in that thread. It doesn't appear to have made a difference.

Hi everybody i'm not that good in getting DATS to work as when MAMEUIFX ended i had to start using MAMEUI & my DATS was working & I could see how to use special moves & other stuff but ever since I noticed that ARCADE had taken over MAMEUIFX I have never been able to get any of my DATS to work I use HYPERSPIN too & my DATS used to work when using HYPERSPIN but neither work now. I have taken screen shots for y'all to see if I ave to delete any folders & I can take more if needed to elp wit tis problem of mine. Any elp is really appreciated.

Your dats folder should also contain history.dat, messinfo.dat, mameinfo.dat, sysinfo.dat, story.dat, and marp.dat

They are currently missing according to your screenshots.
