 Thanks again Tim!

I think I'll take Richard Cavell's advice and read the documentation. Setting writeconig to 1 had no effect.

In fact, when I used the MAME GUI to set the Skip game info screen option to ON and saved the configuration (after setting writeconfig to 1 in mamae.ini) the CoCo emulator came up with out the info screen, but when I exited MAME and came back, this option would be at OFF again and opening mame.ini with a text editor revealed that the writecnfig setting was back to 0.

Really weird, but I am sure that it has something to do with how I am using MAME. I'll follow up when I have more info and understanding about how MAME works. Again, thanks for your help. Salvador

Start MAME with the -createconfig option. It will launch and exit.
This will create a MAME.INI that has all of the default options in a
text file.

Edit MAME.INI and change the option of writeconfig to 1.

This will write changes you make in the GUI back to the config file.
