Hi there.

They can be a bit tricky, these PlayChoice-games, but here you are:

1. Press "5" for credits/life.
2. Press "?" (see below)
3. Arrow keys OR "2" to select game type (1/2-player etcetera)
4. Press "1" to start game.

Note: I have a swedish setup, which means that my "?" (questionmark) may be something else on your keyboard. It is however the button on the RIGHT side of the letter "0"...

A little tip to prevent you from going nuts/mad or whatever:
- Do not press the "`" (next to backspace). That button is "GAME RESET"...

Hope this helps...

/J

Well... it sure is interesting how the location change of a few simple digits can "screw" things up.

I only know how it works on my "setup" - based on pure logic.
I have "˝§" and the numbers 1-0 on the top row followed by "?\+", "`´" and "backspace".

On PlayChoice-10 games it works like this:
- the key "`´" is PlayChoice-10 reset (system reset for PC-10)
- the key "0" is PlayChoice-10 select button (you can select one of ten games in PC-10 - MAME doesn´t support that)
- the key "?\+" is PlayChoice-10 start button.

My guess is that, regardless of what keyboard setup you have (or what symbols you have in a certain place) the keys you press has to be "the same".

So, if my start button is "?\+" - then yours must be located in the same place.
Phew!

...unless of course you have a more modern keyboard, or even a portable one. Then I´m afraid you´re on your own :)

Good luck...

I just wanted to say...

A few minutes ago I downloaded "HoubaUI Plus! Plus!" and finished a test run of PlayChoice-10: 1942.....

It worked without a glitch. The keys were the basically the same as a "modern" MAME emulator.
The only difference was that player select button was "1" instead of "2"...
The key "2" was start button.

I simply inserted my rom directory paths and searched for roms, nothing else. No MAMEinfo, nothing.

I downloaded it from here: lunaticdawn.tistory.com/entry/HoubaUI-Plus-Plus-VS2005-build-0125-Release-8-no-more-new-houba

So, I either your computer is playing tricks with you or you just have to keep on trying...
