I build sets for each system using the dats mentioned. It’s not space efficient, but I know my sets are clean and more or less guaranteed to work. Any set that fails for me is either due to the version of the emulator not fully supporting the set itself or the Pi can’t run it.

Unless you get the parent set 100% checked in clrmame (with associated bios if required) there’s no point trying to load it. All the mame derivatives will check for each rom in the set at loading. If any are missing or fail the checks it will bomb out.

Clrmame can be a beast to work with but it’s very powerful. There are plenty of people here that can help out if you get stuck
