I have tried to use CLRMamePro to compile a list of the latest .212 Split rom, but I keep getting an error when running a check. I am using .212 Split from PD. The end goal is to find out What CHDs are working so I can grab them, and I was told there are a few CHDs that are games by themselves and I would like those to. I'm just trying to keep a personal database of my own to figure out what I need to grab or delete in future updates. They give similar errors like "Centipede (bootleg, set 1) [folder: centipede - parent: centiped - size: 14kb]
wrong placed file: K:\Emulators\MAME\roms\centipdb\136001-211.f7 (move to parent: centiped)
wrong placed file: K:\Emulators\MAME\roms\centipdb\136001-212.hj7 (move to parent: centiped)
wrong placed file: K:\Emulators\MAME\roms\centipdb\136001-213.p4 (move to parent: centiped)"

This is a brand new set obtained from a legit source so I know the files are good

Those files have nothing to do with CHDs.

Yes, I understand, but that was the initial scan of the new SPLIT 212 pack

There's an error in the pack then. Report it to whomever you got it from.

The pack came from Pleasuredome, and the games that should play, play just fine. The problem is only when scanning with CLRMamePro. I don't think the pack is the problem

Test for corrupted sets.
Turn off the "Remove Matched Sourcefiles" from the Rebuilder on clrmamepro.
Rename roms folder to backup_roms.
Make a new roms folder.
Drop the centiped (zip or 7z) onto the clrmamepro scanner screen. Rebuilding into the roms folder. But it will not delete the centiped files from the backup_roms.
If the sets get made and none is missing then it the (zip or 7z) issue. But if the files won't get put into a new (zip or 7z) then the files are corrupted or missing pieces.

I saw that you didn't click on "All" button on fix.

I didn't click on that because it's a new set from PleasesureDome. The exact set I am using is "MAME 0.212 ROMs (non-merged). I decided to use the Non-Merged as I heard it was better for Arcades systems and Launchbox. At least that's what the mame site said. Unless I missed it, I would think a list of CHDs and MAME roms that are working, not working, and CHDs required would be available each Mame release.

That's pretty much all I want to do with CLRMamePro. I also heard some CHDs are games by themselves so I would like to know which ones those are if they are playable. I will re-run that CLRMamePro test and see

why aren't you asking this on the site where you got the things? this isn't a ROM management support forum.

You should never need to run ClrMAMEPro on sets from PD. If the games play in MAME but ClrMAMEPro shows errors, it's probably using an incorrect DAT file.

I still don't understand what you are attempting to accomplish here.

Just start MAME.
You'll get a UI with which you can list all your romsets in various forms. With the default MAME interface you can make a custom filter to do exactly what you want.
Select "Custom Filter" on the left side, then add the criteria you want to filter: EG: CHD REQUIRED + WORKING
Then, when you select Custom Filter, all those will combine to show you what CHD games are, from MAME metadata, considered WORKING.
On top of that, you can then export your list to .TXT file (or XML) for consumption outside of MAME by clicking the orange DISC icon at the middle-top of the main menu.
