    Hi people!

    I've got a question about clrmamepro that bothers me already for quite a long time:

    Is there a way to update a dat file without having to do a full scan of the rom set again? If I add a dat file that is an update to an existing one, clrmamepro notices this fact but the "fastscan" option won't be available any more and the rom manager only allows for a full scan which is annoying if there are updates on a frequent basis as a full scan of a large rom set will take quite a long time. (btw: with "romcenter" I don't have this issue, the program will only scan the new added files and use the hash values of the older roms already calculated before.)

    Any suggestions would be highly appreciated!
