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).

I've been away from the Gemei A330 code for a few weeks, bring the Dingoo A320 version up to speed a bit.

Good news if you have an A320 as well as I've implemented hardware screen scaling - which is very nice!

Now both the Gemei A330 and Dingoo A320 will have hardware screen scaling!

slaanesh: just quickly tried out Beta 3. So far works fantastic. Zaxxon and Congo Bongo now work great. Exiting a game still takes a while. ROMS and Samples still have to be renamed from .zip to .mz. Maybe I have a bad ROM, but couldn't get Donkey Kong to run. All in all, this is a great new release for the Gemei A330. Thanks slaanesh for your 'magic'.

Just wondering.........what is the correct ROM set to use for this release? And what is the purpose on the included Mame4all.dat which is part of the MAME4ALL_beta3_gemei_a330.zip? Does it get copied to the Gemei somewhere?      Thanks

A good question.

There is no absolutely correct ROM set anymore. The Mame 0.37b5 ROM set is the closest (from the GP2X) and will serve you well for most games.

You can however create a perfect set by using clrmampro or some other equivalent tool to create your own ROM set.

You will need:

ROM sets: Mame 0.37b5, 0.84 and 0.148 (or later).
Dat file: mame4all.dat supplied
Utility: https://mamedev.emulab.it/clrmamepro/#downloads
