Switching from Merged to Split

so I was able to get to this today. I did leave the merge same name roms, but I still see duplicates. crap, think I answered my own question after typing this outloud. Key word "name". although the pictured games are the same, they don't have the same name. Should start keeping a list and let people submit and when importing the app can go out and get the updated list for things like this. Would have to be curated tho obviously.

When you import ROMs you are presented with this option

Had they had the exact same title for both, they would have been merged combined and then I could right click and decide which one I want to play. Since they names are not identical, I have to do a manual merge combine. If there was some sort of database where in we as users could mark that these are identical, then this could be prevented.

Edit: Sorry I shouldn't be using the word "merged", but "combined"

There's 4 different versions of this game:

https://github.com/mamedev/mame/blob/master/src/mame/drivers/toaplan2.cpp

Batsugun batsugun

Batsugun (Korea PCB) batsugunb

Batsugun (older set) batsuguna

Batsugun - Special Verson batsugunsp

But yeah, I see what you're saying. Hopefully in the future there's a 'Combine clone ROMs into the Parent'

That would help elevate the pain.
