Thread: Merging Roms folders

  1. #1

    Default Merging Roms folders

    Hi,
    I have two Mame32 versions. The standard mame32 0.95 and the [Neo]MAME32 Plus! 0.90. Each of these have it's own set of roms.
    Tired of having two versions running, i decided to keep on (the standart one) and merge the roms folder into one that would centralize all roms. when i moved all roms to the Mame32 rom folder and performed a restart of Mame, the emulator didnt add the newly added games to the list (not even the "all games" list) - before and after the merge the number stayed constant (5578 games).
    I tried to reinstall Mame32 and perform an audit to all games but it was useless
    Does anyone know what's the issue? Thanks

    It won't change anything as MAME32 and NeoMAME32plus is totally different version compiled by different group. NeoMAME32plus mostly compiled on all NeoGeo games (including the latest ones that is not included in MAME32.

    While MAME32 is still holding the old rules that newer games released will not included in MAME game lists. That's why your MAME32 can't scan the other games even you merged all folders into one.

    Thanks dude for ur reply. So if i understand right what i did is not a solution, and i tried to use the neo version for all games and it didnt want to add them roms. Fo u think there is a solution to have these games managed from one single location?
    BTW, How hard is it to compile a version?
    thanks

    I did not having the problems as you mentioned as I do not have all the games available for MAME.

    But did you refresh them?

    Yes i did, I've refreshed, audit, and even reinstalled mame32 but the neogeo thing didnt show on the available list. To show you the thing:
    on my standard mame32 I have 5107 Games.
    on my neo Mame32 i have 254 games.
    normally i should get sthg like 5361 games. but after adding them i dont get any additional game (5107 games).

    You're probably missing some NeoGeo BIOS file on neogeo.zip . The ROMs inside are usually different from official MAME to MAME derivates like NeoMAME32Plus.
    Check the audit option or download ClrMamePro or Romcenter, create a ROM dat with it & MAME, then you'll know wht ROMs (if any) you're missing.

    Are you sure? It looks to me something is missing in your neogeo.zip, because if only one file is missing on it, you won't see any NeoGeo game available.
    As I can see, you put your neogeo ROMs on the same folder than every other ROMs. You can't see the neogeo.zip by itself because it's not a romset, it's a a bios, so it's a needed part of every neogeo romset to play it.
    I think your "main" set might be missing the neogeo.zip, o maybe it was overwritten by the NeoMAMEPlus one. As it's an older version (0.90) than the offcial MAME (0.95) you got, and not the official one too, the bios might differ from the official one.
    There had been many changes in the neogeo bios, please check it by the case. Excuse me if it's not your case, I'm only trying to help

    The MAME 0.95 neogeo.zip (bios) should have the current files:

    That's another question. I thought you can't play any neogeo game. Games like svc chaos are banned from official MAME because are very new: Only games >2 years older are enabled in official MAME. Furthermore, hacks/bootlegs like zintrick aren't playable. The newer not in official MAME games are:

    King of Fighters 2003
    Metal Slug 5
    Pochi and Nyaa
    SVC Chaos : SNK vs. Capcom
    Samurai Shodown 5 / Samurai Spirits Zero
    Samurai Shodown 5 Special / Samurai Spirits Zero Special
