is there any chance the message could be a little more dynamic

one thing I've noticed over the years is that when pepole see 'or CHD' they instantly assume a CHD is missing, even for things that don't use them.

Maybe splitting the message into sections 'Missing ROMs' 'Missing CHDs' 'Missing BIOS' 'Missing device ROMs' and saying where each should be would help, as the added complexity introduced over the last few years is really throwing a lot of people off, they don't realise they need more than just 'the rom' If there's nothing missing for a certain category, don't show it.
