Slight update to have Settings button working.

MAME is strictly a non-profit project. Its main purpose is to be a 
reference to the inner workings of the emulated arcade machines. This is 
done both for educational purposes and for preservation purposes, in 
order to prevent many historical games from disappearing forever once the 
hardware they run on stops working. Of course, in order to preserve the 
games and demonstrate that the emulated behavior matches the original, 
you must also be able to actually play the games. This is considered a 
nice side effect, and is not MAME's primary focus.
