Mame4Droid .37b5 CHD files not found

Sat Dec 15, 2018 6:52 am

Evening Folks

I have been working with Mame4Droid on my android tablet. I have .37b5 roms installed and they show up in the game list....a lot of them say they cant run because of missing chd files

I have looked for them without any luck

I am wondering..... do they have to be .37b5 CHD'S.....if there is any like that.....from what ive read so far ....they are game specific.

or do all midway games for example, use the same CHD?

it says to create a folder with the CHD name in the ROM folder and the name should match the ROM name and put the CHD file in the folder

I cant find any CHD files of any kind so far

thanks in advance

Well, hate to break it to you, but officially, MAME 0.37b5 does not have CHDs. In fact, CHDs were not a thing in MAME until version 0..63 with War Gods. I'm not sure if that android version has backported drivers or not, but it falls outside the realm of normal MAME support. Just have to make sure you romsets match what is expected - that's all I can suggest.
