« on: December 26, 2020, 04:59:48 PM »
So im wanting to build a 1G1R romset for FB NEO, I have the dat file for the latest release of FB Neo but i also need a catver file, i know i can use a MAME catver ini file but it need to be the same version MAME version that FB NEO was originally derived from.

FBNeo is always trying to stay in sync with latest MAME romsets, however we support hundreds of romsets that MAME doesn't support (hacks and homebrews).

I'm not sure, in the first place i don't understand why you need catver (which gives the category/genre of a game ?) to make a 1G1R list (1 Game 1 Rom list ? so i guess a list trimmed of its clones or something ?). I believe the latest version of catver would be mostly fine for the games we have in common with MAME.

As the dat files i have found for FB NEO seem not to include Parent/Clone info as in ClrMamePro the 1G1R option is greyed out and it says the reason its greyed out is because the used dat file doesnt include  Parent/Clone info ??

The official dat files include parent/clone info. If you are using official FBNeo windows builds, you should be able to generate them from ui, otherwise it'll depend on the port you are using, where did you pick your dat files ?
