Ok this means i will need all the CMD files. One for each game. Depending on the number of games i’ll end up with this sounds like a lot of manual work.
It’s a similar situation with the FM-Towns zips + ISOS but those are just about 60 games i cherry picked since the system doesn’t have that many games and half of them are Japanese text heavy adventures.
Anyway, the only frontend i use for scraping is Launchbox. The other scrapers are not frontends (Screenscraper and Emumovies). But yes, all these recognize the MAME arcade roms. However, i’m not sure about the software lists…
MAME’s naming schemes are the silliest thing about it. It creates issues with scraping or implementing in other frontends and if that’s not enough, they rename a few roms each month, just to make it a bit harder
