> Or I could just get some help since it's obvious clrmame doesn't work for me....
Someone gave you a link to an excellent guide to use clrmame.
I told you what you were doing wrong and I'll say again: "You don't need a "dat" file. Using this guide, go to "Using The Profiler" and jump to "Setting up an "EXE" file".
So what you did? You say: in my interpretation of the guide, you're wrong. Without even trying????
Then a moderator gave you a clear hint... not a hint, he said exactly where to find the roms... but damn, even that you can't understand.
People are being nice and helpful to you, but you're just being stubborn...
