I'm with a really silly problem here. I have a movie on mameui32 0.146 and I want to record an AVI out of it. But seems like mame can only either playback input or record AVI. It can't do both functions at the same time. Here is a pic: I can only either choose "Playback Input" or "Play and Record uncompressed AVI output", not both. Is there not a way to select Playback Input, and then the option to record AVI? It's just that I want to dump the movie that I have saved.

I never used this emulator and I'm not sure if this is going to work but maybe you can write a .bat that does what you want it to do. https://code.google.com/p/mame-rr/wiki/CommandLine

Sorry, but I don't really understand. I fail at cmd. mz taught me how to dump .avi from mame through cmd on another thread, but I'd like to know what I need to type on cmd to playback movies now. Maybe if I do the command to playback input and then to dump .avi, it could work... but I'm not sure. Sometimes I wonder why you can't simply playback input and dump at the same time. Every emulator I've seen that has those two features can do both at once.

MAME can do that very simply, too. Just read the documentation. ...And don't use the terrible piece of shit that is MAMEUI32.
You're just fucking stupid, everyone hates you, sorry to tell you the truth. no one likes you, you're someone pretentious and TASes only to be on speed game, but don't have any hope, you won't get there.

I'd like to know exactly what makes MAMEUI32 so bad to be called a "terrible piece of shit".

Your first post should give you an idea. It's missing most of the functionality of the real MAME, it's very outdated, slow, ugly, useless, not developed anymore, buggy, and so on. I was actually being very nice when I said it was a terrible piece of shit.

Can the official MAME 0.161 record inputs? I downloaded it and I don't see an option to record inputs there at all. I even read the documentations and could not find anywhere saying how to do that. At least MAMEUI32 can record inputs despite how bad it may be.

Oh, God... That shit doesn't add any functionality to MAME, it just makes a lot of other stuff inaccessible. It says very clearly in the official documentation how to record input:
-record / -rec <filename> Specifies a file to record all input from a game session. This can be used to record a game session for later playback.

I must have overlooked that part then. But I just tried things out through a .bat I made and they worked perfectly, so yay. also
