    Yep, I'm sure. You can see it in my pics. Example bs4thmix: How you can see in the left pic in the Audit details, Mame is search for four 847kaa... files, and it searches in the parent bm4thmix. In ROM details the needed CRC values are shown. In the right pic you can see in the the ROM details of the parent, that the need roms are there (CRC !!!). But with different names, 847jaa... If I copy this 847jaa... inside the same folder and rename them to 847kaa..., Mame is happy. Even clrmamepro isn't finding the missing files in the parent folder. Normally it's noticing correct files and renames them. But the originally 847jaa... files are still needed by the parent so it doesn't touch them. 847jaa... from parent and 847kaa... from clone should MERGE but they do not. It should be like this: For the clone bs4thmix Mame looks in the parent bm4thmix for the 847jaa... files, which are there and correct (CRC!). That's it. https://mame.spludlow.co.uk/Machine.aspx?name=bs4thmix Same with the other 2 examples.

    Hello and thanks again for the new Arcade gem. 😄 I found some audit mistake (they exists since some versions). Now with 0.235 the third example has come up (gtrfrk2mja) so I want to report and ask for a solution. Here Mame is searching for romfiles for a clone in the parent folder. These files are there (compare the CRCs) but Mame is looking for the wrong names. After copying the affected files (the "old" names are still needed for the parent itself) and renaming them the audit is successful. Of course, clrmamepro does not like these files. I found these 3 examples:

    I noticed something important: If setting a custom filter, everything isn't saved, no matter what, an Audit, a folder change etc. If I start Arcade, do an Audit and leave, it's saved. If I start Arcade, change a rom folder, it's saved. If I start Arcade, set a custom filter, do an Audit, change a rom folder and leave, NOTHING is saved. It seems that changes aren't saved immediately, but during the closing procedure one by one in a special order. That's really bad, because one save crashing and all following are unsaved aswell.

    Great and many thanks, I'm very happy to see a nice fixed release next time. For me the Audit All Games works, but the results aren't saved. If I close and restart Arcade, the old roms status is shown. Perhaps the old save file is corrupt somehow. Could you tell me please in which file the Audit results are saved ?

    @mamesick Thanks for confirming. Worse than the missing filter saves (only one click) is the missing save of the a new audit status (some few minutes of waiting). And if you don't change the filters, it only works if never used filters. But having an old interface.ini with filters already inside, the prog crashes while loading. So it even can't handle good ini files at the moment.

    ARCADE 0.232

    Many thanks, but still broken since 0.230, so already the third time. Will it never be fixed ? After endless years of perfection it changed from my favorite build to absolutely useless like this for me. Still saving no audit changes and no custom filter settings and generating an unused mame.ini in the mainfolder. The ini handling must be totally broken somehow. A simple and fast test shows it without having any roms or other additional needs: Extract the arcade232.7z to a folder, start arcade64.exe, choose section CHD. Rightclick on CHD and choose custom filter: not working First game is now Area51. Mark it and leave arcade. If now starting again: 1.) the filter should still be set. 2.) it should have marked at the last game Area51. Both is not the case !!! Same with audit: Add any good roms, run audit, the rom is shown green. Leave Arcade and restart it. All is grey again. I love Arcade and I can't believe it's given up getting no fixes. Btw. I'm always on newest Win10, so now at 21H1.

    Of course, this doesn't help at all if you don't use the things causing the problem. The exe with special settings crashes. Or it saves nothing. Not the last used rom, the last scan, filters etc. etc. So only changing the exe changes nothing.

    It seems since 0.230 these filters aren't used and saved at all. Nothing will be saved in gui\interface.ini, whatever is changed in Mame this files doesn't update at all. And yes .... if folder filters are set in the interface.ini MameArcade is crashing at "Loading folders structure".

    Why ??? It is on the normal offical page as always: https://arcade.mameworld.info/ Sadly the new version has the same mistakes, MameUI works still fine.

    Yep, with the 2 mame.ini's is already more than strange. After refreshing all icons become green or red. If I leave and restart, all is gone, so another F5 press is needed. Very disappointing. Overwrite all files with 0.229 and everthing works again. Overwrite all files with 0.230 the setings are broken again. So it's for 100% the 0.230 files fault. Sure, everyone how doesn't touch his settings and lists with notice something. I didn't at the first run, too. But because of the crashs I had to refresh all and the mistake was there.

    ARCADE64 0.230

    I've checked it again: Arcade 0.230 is definitely broken, doesn't save the most settings. Using 0.229 again, everything works perfect as usual. Switch again to 0.230, nothing is saved again, not the last folder, not the result of refreshing the list, no filters, nothing.

    The most CHD games don't work, only 281 are on the working-list, most of them music games. This part is untouched. A lot of the other start but are not really playable, whatever that means.

    Hello v0.230 is the first time ever where's something very wrong for me. First time after updating the files it worked. The second time it always crashes while building at the beginning without any error message. So I decided to use a fresh new build. It starts. But it doesn't save any settings. No interface settings will be saved, no font size, no folders, no gamelist, no selected picture tabs, just nothing. Starting the first time it generates a mame.ini in the main folder AND in the ini folder. So which one is used now ? However non is used to save any setting, neither mame.ini nor ui.ini. Btw. MameUI works still fine after updating.
