Mame Romset...confused

Recommended Posts

Hi,

I try out Retrearch and Launchbox and look whats best for me!

Now i want add a Romset to Retroarch and some Games are working and some not.

What can i do to sort out the corrupted/Clone Roms?!

Or, are there a good Romset out that already sorted?!

I heard of CLRMAME but i dont know how it works!

I don't know of any pre sorted rom sets but during the import at the 2nd to last step you will have a box that looks like this:

Some people don't want them while some people do, it's personal preference.

Yes i have tried that but there still some Roms that dont work after filtering. But anyway, is it possible with Retroarch?! Because Retroarch dont have such a Function.

What version of the Mame core and rom set are you using ? In Retroarch Press F1 and look at the bottom left, if you have a newer core and your rom set is older you could have some roms not up to date for the core.

I forget which Mame core would be best for that set but either the 2014 or 2016 core (probably 2016). They used to have all the cores listed and what version of Mame they were based off on the Retroarch wiki but that seems to have been removed or moved.

My honest opinion on the matter though is you should use a stand alone version of Mame for a romset that old, those older Mame cores are not as good as the stand alones like it is now. You can get a UI version of Mame and use the audit tool in it to figure out what roms are good and bad and what the bad ones are missing.

There is no 2016 Core in Retroarch for me. And yes i search a Tool to audit the roms, is it CLRMAMEPRO? And how it works?!

Shit, they got rid of it.

MameUI has it's own rom audit tool to check your roms to what games are working and what ones are missing.

As for CLRMamePro, I don't use it so I cannot tell you how to use it.
