The games don't start both with command line and using a frontend like qmc2.
I had to set console 0 in the ini to solve the problem.

|Uh.. this is a pretty vague report and very likely a configuration error or build error on your side. Not sure what to say to troubleshoot it other than try rebuilding (or acquire a binary from someone else) and use MAME in a clean folder.|

If you set console to 1 it says:
_/ _/ _/_/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/
_/_/ _/_/ _/ _/ _/_/ _/_/ _/
_/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/ _/ _/ _/ _/_/_/
_/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/
_/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/ _/_/_/_/

It's a new thing that Micko is (was?) working on.

Ok. I'm assuming that is the LUA console? Yes, still experimental and very WIP. .. not even expected to do anything.
I'd continue on as if it did not exist and keeping CONSOLE at its default value of 0.

|I wonder why createconfig creates an ini with console enabled by default if it is experimental.|

-createconfig isn't 1 in my .ini - not sure where it is getting picked up from but keep in mind that when you -creatreconfig, it takes your current .ini settings already changed and doesn't reset them - only adding the missing entries.
If you want a completely clean mame.ini, move MAME to a fresh folder and issue a -cc there. You will notice that console 0 will be the default. I'm only speaking with Windows usage. If someone can prove SDL is setting it 1 by default, that would be good to know.

|The console has been replaced with a Lua plugin that can be started with -plugin console. Like the old console any Lua commands can be entered into it with some improvements.|
