i'm going to do the same thing, in order to light up only the button used in the game.

I found the same project you linked and i think i will use this for base, but i have a huge number of roms and i'm afraid you are right: it's impossible to create and configure a single dat file for each rom!

I am thinking to edit a dat file for each consolle instead of one for each rom: usually every game of nes uses 2 buttons, megadrive 3, and so on…for mame roms it's better to use single dat file per rom.

What do you think? i already don't know how to do that ?

Did you find anything else that could help us?
