Scan for removed roms / Mame import issues


Recommended Posts

 I just imported a full mame arcade set in launchbox.  One issue is when I scan for removed roms, launchbox wants to remove a considerable amount of the games that were just imported (over 2200).  The games are there and they work, so why would launchbox consider them as missing?  How does launchbox determine a game is 'missing'?


 Another issue for importing Mame sets is that genres of games are imported that are not supposed to be.  For example, even though Casino games were checked to be skipped, they are still imported.

You cant use the scan for removed/added roms tool for MAME that is a sure fire way to break your MAME romset completely. You need keep all the files in a MAME romset unless it is specifically a Non-Merged one.Also the MAME importer does not actually look at your rom folder at all, so again that tool will not work for MAME as no games were actually really imported, it's just a list was created, MAME is different to other systems, as is the importer.
