Re: How can I batch remove all non-working MAME roms?

Well...the name check should be clearly visible in the scanner dialog...since it was enabled by default, you disabled it....so you already used it earlier ;-)

I'm not sure if you're too familar with all the terminology and the use of cmpro. If the scanner listed sets with a red cross, your collection is not complete...and that means that you may have a different understanding of "working" status. Again, if you're talking about "not working" in terms of "MAME moans about missing files", then you can use cmpro to remove all listed incomplete sets as mentioned in my previous post...but such sets are INCOMPLETE and your end...and that's why they don't work.

The other case is that MAME flagged a set as "NOT WORKING" (e.g. because it's encrypted, it got known missing IC dumps or something similar). You can identify such sets by looking at MAME's -listxml output, use XSLT to build your own set list and batch delete them....or within cmpro, you can use Scanner->Set Information->Select Sets->%D=good and hit Apply and enable Scanner Advanced option->Mark disabled sets as unneeded. A new scan with all check and fix options enabled will delete the ones which are not Driver Status = "good" ,i.e. driver status imperfect or preliminary...

Again, this is something for the more experienced cmpro user....
