Do I always have to create custom *.mra files whenever I want to try out alternate romsets of arcade games or is the old way of loading rom files still supported and I'm just doing something wrong?
I would really appreciate if the old way of loading rom files could be kept as an alternate way for quick testing if an alternate romset is working. Besides, the joined rom files have advantages over the MAME archives. Once a joined rom file has been created, it will last forever. The same cannot be said for the MAME archives where the naming conventions for the single rom files change from release to release. If this trend continues, keeping the *.mra files up to date is a nightmare.
We go back and forth on this. Although I do think if you are the one creating a new rom file, then creating a new MRA file will be much easier than creating a new .rom bat/.ini/sh script.
