I really don't want to lose all my games from not knowing what I'm doing. torial.htmdoes it still look ok to follow this even though its from 2010 ?
also would i need a merged set or a split set , i can not remember Cheersok a bit more confused now , just looked up GM downloads and 0.171 is the latest so would i have to find a 0.171 set to make this work ?
MAME can solve this problem by erasing the duplicated ROMs from each of the clone sets and storing them only in the main set There is one final method: Not Split.
If there was an independent file for each set, for MAME version 0.59 there would be a total of 3290 files (the number of sets for v0.59).
The question of merged, split, and non-merged ROM sets has to do with "parent" and "clone" games.
Clones often feature a different language or updates to the game software.
Some clones are "bootleg" versions of a ROM -- for example bootlegs that remove encryption that which makes the "parent" ROM unplayable.
seems that could be difficult, also do CHD files change at all or can you use old versions with upto date roms ?
cheers To save yourself from headache...1) Download the latest MAME rom set2) Use Romcenter or Clr Mame Pro with the 0.171 romlist dat file to "downgrade".
