Using romcenter 4.1.1

Trying to fix some roms, romcenter gives for many of my roms the incomplete status (yellow). See screenshot

For example in the screenshot you see and romcenter tells the file dl-1425.bin is “available in another game”.

But the file dl-1425.bin is inside the bios qsound_hle and qsound.

I both have those bios and the game 1944 runs fine in mame.

Inside are only the following files (from mame listxml output) and I checked, those files are exactly in my

Why does romcenter tell the game is incomplete in this case? I don’t have dl-1425.bin in my and it belongs in qsound_hle and qsound bios roms.

    The bios merge mode is set to split. So should romcenter not see the file dl-1425.bin is in the bios qsound_hle and qsound.?

    This is a normal behaviour as of current state: this rom is a device and devices are not yet handled as a specific rom class yet. Instead, they are spread in all games where they are needed, just like regular roms. Project is to handle them like bios or sample: split/merged/unmerged
