2 Eric, a question about samples in MAME:

What if one does not not have/wish to include samples in the roms at all?

For example, i have no samples at all. Still, RC shows in red all roms that contain samples. Can i somehow tell RC to ignore missing samples so the roms will be colored in green instead of red?

No, you can't. But it could be a new option in a future version.

You must remove samples from the datafile before creating the database.

Yup, that might be useful. Since the games are playable without the samples, it would be nice to be able to see them in green somehow.
