Some to try out are Mamewah, Mala, Game Ex, and Maximus.At some point in the future you might want to look at something a little more advanced like Hyperspin.If there is no romname in the cloneof column then that game is the parent rom.So for example if the (US) version of a game is listed as the parent, then the EU, Asian and any other versions won't work if you haven't got the US rom in your rom folder.Start CLRMAMEPRO Read the welcome message dialog, then click "OK" Click "Create..." Click "..." next to filename and find your mame exe Type a description like "MAME0138" Click "Create Profile" Click "OK" select the new profile that you created click "Load / Update" Click "OK" and wait a while Click "OK to All" or "Yes to All" on any window that pops up Now you're at the main window Click "Settings" Click "Add" to add a ROM path Browse to your MAME roms folder and click "OK" It should now look like this with your ROM path In the drop-down, pick "Sample-Paths" Click "Add" to add a Sample path Browse to your MAME samples folder and click "OK" It should now look like this with your sample path Click the X in the corner to close this window Now you're at the main window again Click "Scanner" Click "New Scan" to scan your current MAME roms If you get a popup about an empty samples folder, just click ok Here's the statistics window Click "OK" to close this window when you're done looking at it Here's the results window, with one of the incomplete sets opened up so we can see what files are missing Click the " " button under "Fix", then click "New Scan" again If you get popups, click "Yes To All" Here's the statistics window after we fixed some problems Click "OK" to close this window when you're done looking at it To rebuild your rom set when adding new files, use the rebuilder from the main window Select the source of the new files that you want to rebuild into your current set Click "Rebuild" This is useful when you have a set for an old version of MAME that you want to rebuild for a newer version of MAME Here's the statistics screen from the rebuilding process Armed with the knowledge above, you should be able to rebuild and scan/fix your MAME set.Maybe I'm just not searching right, but I can't find tutorials on updating multiple packs.

Finally the roms you have must be compatible with the Mame version you're using.
Most sources for mame roms will specify which version number of mame they are designed to work with.
