I imagine it's just like the Megatouch stuff, the CDs will upgrade existing HDD images (and maybe require activation / a new dongle) but if the base HDD region / dongle is of a certain region then various options aren't available, it likely all gets installed tho.

It allowed them to keep inline with different regulations / licensing agreements in different countries / states etc.

I think it's one of the issue some of the Megatouch stuff has right now, it's a bit confused about the region and game enables because the keys are faked.

Once MAME documents the various CDs, HDDs and dongles it will all likely become clearer tho.

There are Golden Tee Fore! upgrade CDs that MAME doesn't support yet too (although you have to activate with IT after using them, so they're kinda useless) I think those should probably be added as Software List options in the driver tho, so people curious about them can try the manual upgrades. Upgrade roms for Gauntlet Legends etc. were added as alt bios sets, but again might be more logical to use the Software Lists there too.
