As the title says I need some help running snes games from the software list. I have the firmware files but it seems like MAME expects merged roms for the firmware.
If so how can I merge these roms? For example for Pilotwings I have dsp1.data.rom and dsp1.program.rom. However, when I try to run the game MAME only expects a
single dsp1.u2 file.

Thanks

I think for DSP1 you can just concatenate the program and data and it'll work.

Windows: copy /b dsp1.program +dsp1.data dsp1.merge
Mac/Linux: cat dsp1.program dsp1.data >dsp1.merge

I just tried that, but, when I try to launch the game, this is printed:

Code
dsp1.u2 WRONG LENGTH (expected: 00002800 found: 00002000)
dsp1.u2 WRONG CHECKSUMS:
    EXPECTED: CRC(2838f9f5) SHA1(0a03ccb1fd2bea91151c745a4d1f217ae784f889)
       FOUND: CRC(465c4e1c) SHA1(78b724811f5f18d8c67669d9390397eb1a47a5e2)
WARNING: the machine might not run correctly.


Ingame I get this:

You don't need a video, if the program doesn't match it's not gonna run.

I guess just find it on a ROM site. Google "MAME 0.196" and the zip file name and it should be no problem.
