Samples merged mode: Split

Post by maeztro » Tue Jun 19, 2012 10:02 am

Running a scan using the MAME Superset v0.140 dat file with RomCenter v3.6.2.

I have roms, chd and samples each in its own directory. Under Preferences - Romsets - Samples Merge mode, I have selected Split (Samples in a separate folder).

For undumped samples, I created dummy files. For some reason, some of these are "recognised" by RomCenter and others are not and it is then trying to fix the sample file by adding the roms from the rom directory and deleting the dummy files.

For example:
MAME 005
http://gamesdbase.com/mame-rom/005.aspx
The rom file is ok, with 23 rom files (including one baddump) and seven samples (not available; see http://samples.mameworld.info/) The seven dummy samples are listed as ok.

In contrast,
MAME cosmo
http://gamesdbase.com/mame-rom/cosmo.aspx
The rom file is ok, with nine rom files in the rom folder. In the samples folder, it is marked yellow, with the nine dummy sample files marked as unknown, and the roms as available in another game.

I have added the dat file info at the bottom for reference.

The uncertainty comes down to this:
1. How does RomCenter handle samples that are emulated, but not available yet available?
2. I was under the impression that files in the sample folder will be handles as sample files, but this is not the case where unavailable samples are concerned.

Game info from dat file:
