"A so-called ROM-manager."
CLRMAME (Cool Little Rom Manipulation and Management Engine) Pro is a ROM (read-only memory) manipulation utility that helps you maintain the quality and accuracy of game emulator ROM files. The software compares the data contained within previously installed emulators with the appropriate data files to ensure that your arcade/console game emulators are true to the representation of the original game, while also giving you the ability to make your own patches/adjustments.
At a file size of only about 2 MB, this software downloads and installs extremely quickly. To complete the setup process you'll only be required to click “OK” or “Next” a few times. After installing and opening the software for the first time, you may want to click on the “About” icon in the top right corner of the main window to make sure you have the latest version. Upon doing this you can schedule the software to automatically check for updates on a daily, weekly, or monthly basis.
The user interface is neatly organized into six main sections – Scanner, Rebuilder, Merger, Settings, Profiler, and About. When you open the software, you'll be shown the Profiler window automatically, which displays all of your emulators, as well as their individual data files.
Makes it easy to maintain the integrity and functionality of all of your game emulators
Scanner module quickly finds any errors within your emulators and brings them to your attention
Rebuilder module provides an easy way to re-create ROM files and find missing ones without having to go through the process of re-downloading them. This powerful feature utilizes CRC32 checksums to reassemble files
Profiler module makes it easy to maintain multiple data files for each of your emulators
The Merger module lets you combine ROM files from various sources to create a single emulator, while also giving you the ability to split ROM files into parents and clones, compress ROM files, and remove unneeded files from sets
Because this software is capable of automatically moving, adding, deleting, and renaming files that are crucial towards the operation of emulators, it can sometimes cause significant errors that are hard to fix. Thus, the developers recommend creating backups of all emulators/folders that you plan on modifying using CLRMAMEPRO, as they cannot be held responsible for unintentionally lost/damaged files.
Because of the multifaceted functionality of CLRMAMEPRO, it is truly unique in the world of ROM/emulator management.
If you're looking for an easy way to fix, improve, or simply maintain your arcade/console game emulators, this software provides an ideal solution. Ultimately, CLRMAMEPRO is a must-have for any advanced techie that regularly uses their computer to emulate video games.
