My bad @badhemi i didnt see your Mame chd folder post earlier. 

 

I know im late but just in case,

 

Its just standard mame folder setup i.e. kinst.zip with matching \kinst folder that holds the chd.

 

But none of it works in retroarch until the system folder is set to the correct mame bios set.

Yeah i did with my original 139 set, using a bios pack for .139.

 

But i've just recently updated to ,173 and i just upgraded my bios set to the .175 bios set, so even tho my roms should still work fine, I'lli need to update my romset once more.

 

I'll retest  it again on monday once i reupdate.

Don't think there is an easy way to find out. Unless you have an info text file or no file that states it. It's a case on remembering what version number you sourced. MAME gets updated regularly so you could narrow it down if you know when you got it. Someone else may know a way.

The best version quoted for mame4droid is 0.139u1 I believe. The current one is 0.174 or 0.175 I think

I think badhemi has 0.164 from his posts recently he has been working it out.

Literally 2 post back.

@badhemi how did you figure out your version in the end?

This thread is intriguing to me.   I was under the impression that CHD roms were not working properly with the retroarch mame cores.   

I am not using a 'bios pack' with mame but I did find a downloadable 'pack'.   

 

Did you just extract those files in the retroarch <system>/mame folder directly?

Currently I have /artwork and /samples in my retroarch <system>/mame folder.

Did you use mame4droid 0.139u version? And if so, changing the xml list, wouldn't that mess up working arcade games of other wheels which run with this version of mame? Say, you got konami classics, if all your games in this wheel play with mame 0.139u and you change the xml list which is based on 0.164, would that affect games, will they still work, or do you have to convert the roms to 0.164 supported ones?

There isn't an "easy" way but there are ways to do this with a PC.  Download the MAME .exe for whatever version you want to check with (ex: .139u1).  Then use mame -verifyroms on your ROM folder, it will tell you which ROMS are valid/invalid for the version of MAME you are checking with.  You can do the same thing with clrmamepro.
