MAME Import Full Set Issues? 0.222


Recommended Posts

Hi, I was trying to import my MAME 0.222 Full Set but for some reason when it gets to the final screen to parse the list of games I see nothing?  The window is blank.  I am using  v11.2.   See below the screenshots.   My first attempt was using the Import MAME Arcade Full Set wizard.   When I attempted instead to use Tools.. Scan for Added Games.. Arcade,   I get the error message.

Something seems strange I had an older set which was the exact same path but I replaced with this newer set to re scan, and this happened.   I had a v 0.198 set that seemed to important when I tried originally.  I completely emptied out the folder though before placing all the 0.222 ROMs (and .CHDS in respective subfolders).  So there shouldn't be anything in the folder causing this problem...

There was another thread that indicated 0.222 was updated relatively recently. Unfortunately, you cannot tell by file version.  I have also found in at least in two cases on my system that I have had to do a force metadata update. For whatever reason the MAME XML file wasn't getting updated even though other metadata info was fine.  So I take as precursor practice before MAME import to just do a force update to be sure using most recent version.  Capture.thumb.PNG.adbbc3563019c11662d96b0b78c389b3.PNG
