There is a problem with your split dat file. The parent/clone relationships are not correct and as a result the clrmame
cant let you choose the "split set" option. For example the Lines in your dat looks like this:

<game name="puckmod">
      <description>"PuckMan (harder?)"</description>
      <year>1981"</year>"
      <manufacturer>"Namco"</manufacturer>
      <cloneof>"puckman"</cloneof>
      <romof>"puckman"</romof>

And the right way must be like this:

<game name="puckmod" clone of="puckman" romof="puckman">
      <description>PuckMan (harder?)
</description>
      <year>1981</year>
      <manufacturer>Namco</manufacturer>

Anyway way it's no big deal.

No it is a big deal!
Thanks will fix it!

There's also still another issue with some file sizes being incorrect. Fixing this as well.

After a few hours inserting and fixing roms, cause the mame4all from slaanesh as i can see has a romset mix from different versions of mame, i made a full set of correct roms based on his dat file. There is 2914 games. Now its time for test on Gemei!

Also i fixed the wrong size issues in his clrmame.dat(no the split one).
Here it is:

Again thank you slaanesh!

I've fixed my code too which generates the clrmame.dat file in the first place, so it should be okay now.

I might just stick with the split version - unless there is popular demand to have both versions.

Next step is to list which Modules contain which games.

This document will be generic and cover all MAME4ALL v2.0 ports.

Well, if the dat file includes proper information about parent and clone roms, clrmamepro will allow you to create merged, non-merged, and split romsets.

I personally prefer non-merged sets because I only want to keep one version for each game. IE, if I want to have TNMT 2 player version, I only need to have tnmt2po.zip (if I was using split sets, I would need to also have tnmt.zip, and they will appear as 2 separated entries in Mame4All game selection).
