With newer versions of MAME you will get this error if you try to load MK2+



To Launch MK2+ you need to do it from command line. Either go to command prompt, change directory to your MAME directory, and load MAME with this command



This method can be annoying, so the best thing to do is create a batch file (like a shortcut) to load the game. To create a batch file simply load notepad and type in the following..



Once done, you're going to click "File > Save as...", change the save as type to "All files", name the file "MK2Plus.bat", and save it in your MAME folder.



You now have a shortcut to play Mk2+



Hope this helps!

I plan to have a custom version of MAME for those who need it without doing this work around.

A question: Does this work on MAME32 (not 64) 0.149b? I'm using that.

@zpaul2fresh8: I get what you mean, don't worry.

Should work with mame32. Just change "mame64" with the name of your MAME exe

Is there a way to play this on MacOs? I tired using QMC2-SDLMame and it loads the original mk2.zip but doesn't work if I patch the roms. I tired using terminal commanline launch and still doesn't work
