Colour Codes: No Known Issues! Works Partially Doesn’t Work Not Tested

SCI+tgmi = System, Controller, Icon + Title, Gameplay, Marquee, Icon

NOTE! While the above table idicates working status, it may NOT work on your setup! Colours are based in the feedback of users, so green means that someone has managed to load it without issues.
NI (No-Intro), CL (CustomList)
* ixbar3000 works, but the emulator doesn’t (ie. missing mess drivers).
¤ Load ok, fail on exit, no stats
` Works in theory, but ixbar3000 lacks functionality
^ Load ok, gets stats, exit needs sudo kill -9
~ Highly experimental. Does run something, but fails alot!
While loading mame works, if one chooses to start a rom that doesn’t work, it might freeze the OS! Parser doesn’t handle compatibilities. Mame parser skips data.
