so you're missing the roms..
I'm struggling to understand posts like the one you've made.
We specifically say a game is now working because missing roms were dumped, and yet people seem to think the romsets they've had for years should still work. I don't understand the logic there.
The same is happening with World Rally 2, people seem to think it's a terrible thing that MAME now requires a new rom for it to run, and are utterly confused by that concept, even if all the posts talking about it talk about how the previously missing rom was dumped and the game is now playable.
If MAME says roms are missing then roms are missing, it's not the most complex of things, and it's getting rather tiresome seeing people claim games are 'broken' in MAME just because they don't have the correct roms. Changes are often needed to move forwards.
