How do I mount floppy images in a MAMEUI emulated Macintosh?
Tab doesn't show any menu since it's mapped to the Macintosh keyboard

Does MAMEUI support remapping keybinds? This was a common issue for titles such as Journeyman Project running under SheepShaver in more modern cases. If there is no option, the question would probably be does it have any command-line options or custom configuration file ability to change those details? Otherwise on such old systems without networking an emulated hard drive on the host containing the application would be an option. Many non-commercial emulators lack drag and drop, and on-the-fly mounting, so this is a pretty common limitation. Since I mainly deal with SheepShaver and Basillisk running OS 8.1, 8.6, 9.04 and have only tried MiniVMac with OS 6.0.4 I can't comment on the specifics of MAMEUI except to recommend if it allows a second hard disk to store/mount image files in that fashion, it may be worth a try if the emulator lacks that "native" ability.

press the UI mode toggle switch (default: Scroll Lock) to access the MAME menu and mount floppy images

I don't think MAME is limited to this point of view, since for some machines it allows to mount things I didn't even know could be mounted.

Can't try that right now, I'm going to try that when I get home.
Maybe Scroll Lock is not useless after all *hehe*

Well, that worked.
Buuuuuuuut, there's another problem: when mounting a system 7 boot disk, the emulated Macintosh just restarts after the happy Mac.
Does this only happen to me or is it a known problem?
Never mind, installation disks work.
