I'm new to the command-line version, I usually use Mame32 but I'm trying to
set up my cab with Mamewah. Anyways, it seems to be working except when I
play a game, the screen is distorted. The sides of the image are all
concave (or convex, I don't remember which is which). How do I fix this?

That sounds not like a MAME issue. Did it do this with MAME32 too?

May be the command line version uses a different resolution mode?

Mame32 works perfectly, so I guess I need to know how to mess with the
resolutions and stuff with command-line Mame.

There's a readme.txt shipped with MAME. It explains some command line
option you mightwant to play it.

So "mame.exe defender -option parameter"

How will this work in conjunction with Mamewah though?

Many of the options have equivalent entries in the MAME.ini file.
