Your English is fine, Norskjävel.
Unfortunately, 0.119 is quite a number of years old at this point, and given the sheer amount of development that has gone into MAME since then, as well as the fluid nature of the team's population, we can't really support versions that old.
For what it's worth, we understand the effort that it would take to remake your settings, but consider on the other hand the amount of effort that has gone into making MAME better over the past decade.
