NOT about missing features Eric but wrong/missing ROMs.
I'm new to Mame and ROMs obviously but by using RomCenter, the internal audit of Arcad64.exe (v180) and or ClrMamePro I just get more and more confused.
I have begun downloading v180 romset and is why I opted for v180 Arcade64. Everyone in-the-know says match your Mame to your ROMs for an easier life! Sounds like a great idea and simple enough!
Lots of ROMs but why not audit ongoing with what I have and see how it's going right? Okay, but depending on which program I use I get different reports. I expect the "missing" component to be big but lessen each time I add the latest download and this has happened using the internal facilities of Arcade64 but with Romcenter (which I prefer to use over ClrMamePro) I am getting a weird result.
I get as an audit from Mame (Arcade64_v0.180) itself:- 5020 Correct, 765 Incorrect and 4143 missing ROMs. I have noted that "missing" amount is reducing as I add more downloaded ROMs and is a logical result.
With RomCenter (spelt centre here in Oz) and an audit on the same folder of ROMs I get these reports:
//You are having 34 of 4455 known arcade64 items (only mains, roms)
//You are missing 4421 of 4455 known arcade64 items (only mains, roms).
This is obviously not correct and to me not even possible but although the process seems straightforward enough, I may be doing something wrong.
Can you guys help? I really want a clean set as I probably will never update once this is settled. The PC engine of my bar-top cabinet will never go online and will be used for the most part by several pre-teens and teens (we have 7 kids) so once working fine I will throw it to the wolves.
Any help here would be greatly appreciated.
