IBM/AT 51570 and all of its clones require dozens of device sets.
You will not find any MAME tool that will give you what you're looking for. List all device/bios sets required for parent set+clone sets.
But this is a nice idea. I could implement that in my frontend.
1. select a parent sets that has clone sets
2. click "Search all required .zip files for parent set + clone sets (device/bios/CHDs)"
3. the frontend would show a list of all .zip filenames required for each set
4. perhaps add an option to copy files to an external HDD or something ???
I like this idea!
You can try a frontend that shows grouped view and then go thru the parent set, get all the device sets/bios sets it needs, then go thru all its clone sets and get all sets it needs.
That's the only way.
Using my frontend, this is somewhat easier to do. I'm sure other frontend that show games in groups (parent+clones) can help you do the same.
