First and foremost, I would like to say thank you for creating and sharing this amazing collection!

Second, I was wondering which rom sets and which versions were used to create this build? I assume that MAME was used for arcades, if so, then which version? Some No-into sets, Goodsets perhaps or only MAME SL roms?

Once I download this beauty, I intend to keep it updated as much as possible. It's my first retro gaming project, so I guess that I'll need some sort or rom management software and .dat/.xml files to verify the roms against. It would be great to know where this collection is at currently and how to keep it up to date.

Many thanks in advance.

Right, since no one bothered to answer... I downloaded the whole thing (after a month!) and the info from Wolfanoz says the following on this matter:

"[The release] has a solid 23,000+ games which I mostly hand picked with some no-intro sets included. (...) Thanks to the filters built in when you import roms, it weeded out a lot of the unwanted games (especially for MAME) as it's the full current set."

It seems that the MAME version here is 209 (2019-04-24). As far as I can tell it contains +12000 games.

Probably because everyone who has downloaded it wont be checking the Wolfanoz forum 🙂 and its fairly old now so some of us (me included) no longer have it installed 🙂

Glad you have it sorted....

My original query was back from November, but I added the information recently for other people. It's nice to see that someone reads this forum every once in a while ? Weirdly enough, I didn't get a notification of your reply despite subscribing, just checked it out while doing something else...

Is there a better place to talk with people about the releases here? I know that Colpipes has his own discord (I joined that) and I also use Launchbox forum, but that's more for general retro and Launchbox stuff rather than ArcadePunks releases, like the Wolfanoz one...

Why did you uninstall Wolfanoz? What are you playing with now, Pipiggie?

Sure am, and getting involved in the community fixes, I believe there is also a guy creating a PIPIGGIES to LAUNCHBOX conversion too !

That would be great! Thanks for letting me know. I hope that the release looks as complete in terms of artwork, videos etc. as Wolf's release, especially in Launchbox (not Big Box).
