When the new MAME importer says clones will be imported as “apps”... what does that mean exactly? I don’t remember hearing that phrase in regard to LaunchBox before

It means that the clones will be available to run from the right-click menu, or from the game details menu in Big Box.

They are added to the parent rom in the right click menu.

@theolsonhome If you import hacks, sometimes unfortunately those hacks can end up as the main game, which is why you're seeing Hangly Man and such. This is due to the region prioritization, but I think it could be improved to skip over the hacks, so I'll look to do that here soon. If you skip the hacks though, then you won't have that problem.

Thanks Jason. I have been pulling my hair out trying to figure out what wen wrong as I have started from scratch twice with the same results. I will do it again without clones. Thanks for all your hard work. I really do appreciate it. GB.

@Jason Carr A bit late but I was finally able to update my Mame library with the new import system and all mame updates and want to let you know it works amazing and am astounded how much more details and information the games have now, thank you so much! :)
