Hi I recently updated my MAME to 0.222 and it won't load any CHD based games (Ex. sf2049, sfrushrk, etc.), CHD games worked fine in 0.220 and now the latest version doesn't load ANY CHD based games. How do I fix this?

If you have a separate folder for CHDS, each CHD be placed in a folder inside that ROMPATH entry which matches it up to the actual game.
Using the above example, for instance, with multiple rompaths (separated with a semi-colon ;
ROMS could be in::
CHD could be in:
