well as requested by MAMEBASE i've combined the two of these little addons into one thread
so i hope someone finds them usefull

1st up is mameinfo.dat
here's a little file i've found very usefull in the past and still do now
what is it ?
it basically tells you a bit about the game your playing
how far it's come in mame ,and sometimes what needs to be done ,plus any name changes that may have taken place(if you can't find your beloved game this may be the reason why) this only works on the ui versions of mame not the official version

getting it to work

unzip the file from the website then unzip it again with 7 zip then plonk the dat file in your main emulator folder where your mame exe is ,then when you fire mame up you'll get the information in the snapshots box under the snap of the game .if you don't like it or get fed up with it just delete it and thats it it's gone
go to http://www.mameworld.info/mameinfo/ and scroll down to where it says MAMEINFO.DAT 0.13*** (****kb) (* stars = current version of mame) and thats that
it gets regularly updated sometimes not straight away so be patient


2nd is history dat
The History.dat is a file that can be combined with your favorite MAME frontend. Have access to all trivia, facts and tips for all your favorite games. The History.dat file is directly extracted from the arcade-history database.
the latest version (as of the 3rd of november 09)can be acessed here
http://www.arcade-history.com/dats/mamehistory135.zip

and it's web page here (for future downloads)
http://www.arcade-history.com/index.php?page=download
anyway i hope everyone finds these two usefull
cheers for now

Having someone else's MAMEUI.INI is not wise !!!
This file is created when mame first runs and contains info on settings and folder paths.
No need for you to download one !!
