clrmamepro help with shrinking game list
« on: 03 April 2017, 04:40 »

With every new release of MAME, my list of working games shrinks.  The most recent release had several games end up in the not working list due to missing files.

I have questions regarding how to use clrmamepro to help update these games to working status again.  Am I required to hunt down each missing file, or can clrmamepro generate them using the mame exe?  I am still learning the ins and outs of the program.

Also, if anyone is familiar with the Nebula Model 2 emulator, please message me(in case addressing such a question is not permitted in the open forum)

No, CLRMAME can not magically create files out of nothing.
You will have to find the missing files by yourself.

What CLRMAME can do is help you keep all your files in correct order for the version of MAME taht you are using.
It works this way:
1) you point clrmame to the mame executable that you are using; this is done only once, and in this way clrmame "learns" what files are needed and in what order for your mame.
2) you let clrmame "scan and fix" your collection of files; clrmame will keep the good ones, give them the right name and order, and will put the unneeded ones into the backup directory (better safe than sorry).
3) clrmame will also help you "rebuild" all the files that you find out on the internet into the right place in your collection.

Each step must be redone when you upgrade your mame to a newer version.

This is just a quick overview, if you have any specific problem just ask.

So I am to assume that Google will be my friend in helping track down the files missing from my roms?
