Hey folks,

 

Maybe not the best place to post...just wanted to get an and idea and maybe some input.

Been a long time since I set my old arcade cabinet up and can't remember the app I used to filter out all the MAME games you don't want to see.

 

Any suggestions on a good tool/application to create the xml database filtered by gametype/controller type etc?

Thanks Brolly, yeah it was.

I'm really surprised by how much the rom set has grown in size...iirc the last version I was using was 0.133 that must have been about 20 gig, now 0.148 seems to be double that (excluding CHD's n samples).

That's mostly because mechanical stuff like fruit machines has been added to the Mame set.

That would explain it, seems like quite a few more Asian n Japanese sets as well.

Got the Romlister to prune it down to a slightly more manageable 1500 games instead of nearly 30k! :)
