All the games are combined so that you just need to make a BIOS change (TAB -> BIOS Selection) then use the arrow to choose version you want to use then select "Reset". It will restart MAME running the chosen version. The defaults are the former parent versions for both kinst and kinst2.

when i check for KI or KI2 they show as unavailable. i have 0.192, are they incompatible with that version?

Right-click on the game, choose Audit, it will tell you what's wrong.

In my case it complains because I've got an old version of the CHD, however it still runs.

both say quite a few files are missing, including the CHDs. and i tried running them anyway to no avail are there recent and reliable versions of the roms available individually?

Just a suggestion here...

Please let ClrMAME Pro be your friend!

Makes life so much easier to bear...
