Summary 02604: Option to "Create .INI" in minimal UI.
Description A worthwhile addition would be to allow a "CREATE NEW MAME.INI" option when presented with the game selection/minimal UI screen. There are some who absolutely cannot fathom any command-line integration - this would assist those who would otherwise get frustrated and still do know to edit a text file from notepad.

This request is 14 years old, surely the current UI can do this?

You can create a mame.ini by starting MAME without specifying a system, selecting “Configure Options” at the system selection menu, and then selecting “Save Configuration”. I believe that option has been there ever since MEWUI was merged.

Initially, MEWUI would automatically create mame.ini when you closed the configure options menu. At any rate, it’s been possible to create mame.ini through the built-in UI since the initial import of MEWUI.
