DAT viewing


Recommended Posts

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.

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.
