    Default Don's HyperSpin ROM Renamer crashes on MAME ROMs

    Worked fine on other ROM's, but when I try to run even a limited number on MAME ROM's in crashes out - anyone have any ideas?

    I tried it on several versions and I do have the latest MAME list.

    Default Don's HyperSpin ROM Renamer crashes on MAME ROMs

    Why would you want to rename mame Roms? That's just asking for trouble

    Good question. I was using Don's tools to give the ROM's pretty names and then using his list generation tool so that I can filter a decent portion of the 8000+ ROM set that I don't want on the machine. If you can think of a better way, I'm all ears.

    Now that I open up the HyperList XML for MAME games, it appears they reference the short names I already have - I guess I don't need to rename them after all...

    Make backups always when ever attempting renaming is what I have learned.

    The ROM renamer was not intended to rename MAME roms, and therefore it was not tested for that system. Thankfully the HyperList XML files provide a nice user friendly description rather than the cryptic MAME files.
