I was able to make this work by adding the release element to each game that has this problem. It looks like there are several cases where a (Rev 1) version of a game has been added to the no-intro DAT, and they removed the release element for the original version.

Thanks so much for your help!

Does the lack of a "release" element cause that entry not to be considered as a candidate in the set?

What is the general function of the "release" element?

I found the same question (unanswered) in no-intro's forums: http://forums.no-intro.org/viewtopic.php?f=2&t=2901&p=21429#p21429, so I thought I would ask here as well in case you have the answer :)

Thanks so much for looking into this, and for the explanation.

I think I misunderstood what 1g1r is supposed to do in the face of an incomplete romset. I was under the assumption that it would keep at least one copy of every game, assuming one exists from the regions you select in the rom manager. For example, I thought that if I select "USA, EUR", that the algorithm would choose the first of these:

-Some preferred version from USA (such as "Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" in this case)
-Any version from USA (such as "Mortal Kombat (USA)")
-Some preferred version from EUR
-Any version from EUR

My goal is to trim this set to contain just USA versions (or EUR if no USA release). Is there some other way I can do this that you know of?

Perhaps what I should be doing is this same operation, but with the datfile and pclone file from the same date that this romset was released (2018-03-07). It looks like "Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" is a new addition to the datfile since then. Do you know if there is any way to get older version of the datfiles from no-intro? I could be missing something obvious, but I can't seem to figure out a way to do this, if it exists.

Here they are. Thanks for looking!

clrmame Discussion / strange 1g1r behavior selecting unneeded
« on: 11 January 2019, 07:02 »
I'm using 1g1r mode to trim my SNES collection, and noticed something strange:

-I've selected USA as the only region.
-My set contains "Mortal Kombat (USA)" but is missing "Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)"
-In 1g1r mode, clrmamepro wants to delete "Mortal Kombat (USA)" as unneeded, even though "Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" is missing
-If I proceed with fixing unneeded files, I end up with no copy of Mortal Kombat
-This happens even if I add EUR as an alternate, second region
-The regular scanner mode (non-1g1r) shows my copy of "Mortal Kombat (USA)" as good and "Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" as missing, as expected.
Here are the relevant entries from the p/clone xml:

Code: [Select]
<game name="Mortal Kombat (USA)" cloneof="Mortal Kombat (Europe) (Rev 1)">
<description>Mortal Kombat (USA)</description>
<rom name="Mortal Kombat (USA).sfc" size="2097152" crc="def42945" md5="0934878bb5ef33f25c1fcaba18a1105b" sha1="c6ded5b8bca1716a2dddfdc697b31f085aaa05d0" status="verified"/>
<game name="Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" cloneof="Mortal Kombat (Europe) (Rev 1)">
<description>Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)</description>
<release name="Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1)" region="USA"/>
<rom name="Mortal Kombat (USA) (Rev 1).sfc" size="2097152" crc="7ca113c9" md5="3ca4ba9c14827abfa0d047151bc86634" sha1="cf1c70c368da2a5a38771465137d7ab243b16335" status="verified"/>

Scanner mode (you can see both in "set information"):

1g1r mode ("Mortal Kombat (USA)" disappears from the set information list):

1g1r mode (all copies of "Mortal Kombat" from all regions get marked as unneeded, even though I don't have "Mortal Kombat (USA) (rev 1)"):
