Cleaning up a *merged* romset?

Recommended Posts

I made 2 mistakes when I imported my roms into Launchbox:

1. Chose a Merged romset (it was the only one I could find for 0.235).

2. I Didn't filter out *anything* when I did the Launchbox romset import.

Is there any way to clean up a merged romset? Every single post and youtube video I find only cleans up Split romsets. Am I better off trying to clean this one up, or using something like Clrmamepro to converting it to a Split set so it can be culled? Or some other way?

Launchbox works with any romset type. Just run the mame fullset importer again, and make sure you use the 0.235 version of the emulator, and uncheck downloading any media as you already have it all.

Deleting all games from Launchbox, then re-importing worked great!
It took me a bit to wrap my head around the idea that deleting games from Launchbox will not physically delete the games from my MAME\roms folder. Launchbox is merely an "organizer" of sorts.
Thanks!

You didnt need to delete first, thats why i just said to run the importer again, it would of resulted in the same outcome. Launchbox by default does not delete your roms when you delete them from Launchbox, there is a setting that you can turn on that WILL do that, but even then it will warn you first, all you are doing when deleting a game from launchbox is removing a line or two from the data file for that platform so that that game is no longer listed.

Glad you are all sorted though.
