Mame NoFiller Version 2 1.0.3

   (4 reviews)

About This File

Requirements:

A complete Mame Non Merged rom set for the version you are downloading. You must have this downloaded to your hard drive to use the batch file. If you have a seedbox you can use the included NoFiller v2 - *.txt file to copy / paste to a filter and only download those files if you don't want to use your own internet bandwidth downloaded a complete Non Merged rom set.

What is this ?

This is a batch file for people who only want to have a clean and streamlined set of games in their Arcade platform. It will copy out a curated set of roms from a full Mame rom set. The list of games selected was based off of input from people here on the forums, discord and my own personal experience playing these games growing up in the arcades back in the 80s and 90s. There are 434 rom files that will be copied out but there are some duplicates of a few games that have 2 or 4 player versions such as TMNT or Gauntlet for example, you can pick which one you want to use in your setup. (see below)

This is not the end all be all set of games of course but it is a good solid base to build your own personal set from rather than trying to pare down a complete set of roms. I tried not to include games that had really funky controls or light gun games though I did include some trackball and spinner games.

Included in the zip file you will find a batch file, spreadsheet document and 2 text files (1 list of roms and 1 list of games). The spreadsheet will allow people an easy way to maintain and add games as required. The rom list will make it easy to download only those files if you use a seedbox to get your roms from a torrent and the games list will let you compare what you have imported into Launchbox to see if anything is missing.

How to use this:

First you will need to download the Non-Merged rom set that the batch file was made with, using a different set than the bat file was intended for may or may not cause incompatibilities in roms. Then simply copy the batch file into the folder with all of the roms and double click the bat file, it will make a new folder within that folder and copy all of the roms into that newly created folder. From there you can copy that new folder of roms to anywhere you like and import them into Launchbox, be sure to update your rom path in your mame.ini to point this rom set location. You can now do whatever you like with your full set you downloaded, it is no longer needed for the NoFiller set to function, though you may want to keep a backup just in case.

Extra Notes:

Games that have problems importing into LB, will need to be imported individually.

Amazing, this is exactly what I've been looking for. It's cool to say you have 6000+ MAME games, but it gets annoying fast trying to find something actually worth playing.

Very useful - an assistance in curating the games I remember from arcades without getting bogged down in too many irrelevant ones. Spend more time playing the games, less time sorting them out and go with the NoFiller!

Thx alot. Will the 0.217 batch file work with 0.218 ? My 0.217 set is merged. My 0.218 is non-merged. 

It worked with 0.218 just fine. Copied everything even the few troubled ones you mentioned

Awesome, can't get .207 from PD anymore so will give this a try with .209...

Response from the author:

It should work with the 209 set, the file names did not change.
