    is there any reason I should do merged vs split set in clrmamepro?
    I did split because most said to go with that or use default, which it was set on.
    trying to get the best compat on mame 1.0
    and trying to get my dirty hands on that 1.1rc but can't figure out that compression they used here.
    HALP.

    because mame for wii uses 134u4 roms and most don't work so just doing what most have suggested on the path

    I have a 134u4 dat file and used clrmamepro and did the scan/convert to split sets
    that seems like the best for wii mame
    I just downloaded this and might try it.
    think I'm doing it right

    any help on how to create or fill in the gaps for the red roms?
    I think I've played altered beast on wii mame but it shows it red.
    I'm able to generate some with the dat file.
    but a batch operation doesn't work. I have to go file by file for it actually to generate missing roms.
