So I’m having an odd issue with Mame and figured maybe someone could enlighten me to whats up.
I have 2 separate Mame sets.
One I converted to v0.37b5, split sets, using clrmamepro.
One I downloaded that is already at v0.37b5 off a user named Jackhammer over at EMP.
Both exhibit the same issue.
As usual, ROMS show up fine and play fine.
Both Parents and Clones/Child, no issue.
However some of the Child files link to different games completely.
One of the 10 Yard Fight clones boots Pac-Land. One of my 1943 clones boots to Kung-FU.
And so on.
Sure I could just leave them there, but I am a bit OCD about it. I like having the clones but not all these “false hope clones” as I’ve been calling them. I am also building pie set ups for my close friends. They buy the parts and I supply the SD image… So I’m trying to clean things up just for the sake of being a good guy.
Follow up on my issue.
I copied all my roms from mame-mame4all to mame-libretro.
The “false hope clones” no longer show in libretro. All games I tested seem to run ok and are accurate to the on screen title.
