I'm trying to set up ClrMamePro so sort out some Sega Master System NoIntro ROM sets. I used this guide: https://www.reddit.com/r/RetroPie/comments/5njtvs/guide_how_to_trim_your_romset_of_duplicate_roms/
I have added a rompath inside the ClrMamePro settings. The rompath folder contains 559 *.sms files.
Yet, when I hit Scan or New scan, ClrMamePro returns the following error message:

"The following not empty rompath don't contain any valid set:

Either you selected the wrong paths or all sets have wrong names.
Recheck your settings or enable at least 'set' + 'name' check.

Do you want to go on with the scan?"

If I choose to go on with the scan, it says I have 0 ROMs.
What am I doing wrong?

i'm trying to rebuild a group of TOSEC rom files. I have set a destination dir, but instead of putting the ROM files in there, Clrmamepro is creating subdirs for each ROM file... What do I need to do so that all the ROMs are just placed in the destination dir and not in seperate dirs for each ROM??

clrmame Discussion / "Fix Wrong CHD Place" problem
« on: 24 October 2015, 07:49 »
I am using the scanner and I have checked all the 'Fix' boxes before starting the scan. clrmamepro finds a few "Fix Wrong CHD Place" errors related to a Beatmania game, and asks if I want it to move the CHD files to the correct locations. Even if I select "OK", clrmamepro will still run into the same problems during next scan. Here is an example of one of them:
"Fix Wrong CHD Place"
Set:   beatmania IIDX (863 JAA)
Name:   bmiidxa
File:   F:\mame0166b_64bit\roms\bmiidxa\863hdda01.chd
Wrong Place:   F:\mame0166b_64bit\roms\bmiidxa\863hdda01.chd
Right Place:   F:\mame0166b_64bit\roms\bmiidx\863hdda01.chd
Do you want to move the CHD?

What should I do to fix this? Should I move the files manually?

clrmame Discussion / Questions from a newbie...
« on: 20 October 2015, 09:02 »
I'm new to the forum and I'm trying to understand how to use the clrmamepro... I have a few questions.
1. What should I do, if I have a ROM folder containing both merged, unmerged and split sets, and I want clrmamepro to go over all of these roms, take the neccessary files and create brand new split sets (only split sets)? Is the rebuilder the feature I should use in this case?
2. Would the rebuilder make brand new ZIP files for all ROMS, including the ZIP files which already are split sets in the source folder, or would it only rebuild the ones which aren't?
3. If the ZIP files in the source directory are of different compression levels, would the rebuilder use the same compression level for all the new ZIP files? I would like to use the same compression level for consistency.
4. What about if I want to go thru the same procedure as in question #1, but with ZIP files containing Samples? Would the rebuilder also rebuild new ZIP files for the Samples? If not, how would I go about doing it for the sample files?
5. Lastly, CHD files... Doing what is in question #1 for CHD files, how would I go about?

Also, when I first set clrmamepro up, I did not specify any DAT files, I let it create one using the latest version of MAME's exe file. Will this work for CHD files as well, or do I HAVE to use DAT files for CHD?
And are there any particular pro/cons of letting mameclrpro create a DAT using MAME's exe?

Sorry for all the questions... Thank you for reading and hoping for some answers. :-)
