@rwood

I tried different combinations but always end up with 126 missing samples. Strangely though, the 6 sets that are missing samples adds up to 108

@ToeKnee

Your fixes are 5.31gb. I was going to do it but i'm sure someone has a faster upload than i do  :-[. In a few days i will have faster though  8)

@uglyman: Here is your fix

The missing samples are not really missing, they are reported as missing because of the missing roms. One day maybe we get all those missings and everything can be green again.

@Eispic, roydudul, sting932003, KingTut: This should fix your missings as well.

You are missing the non-existing colored ROMs. You used a different DAT.
Those "Colored ROMs" are just placeholders for ROMs you can patch yourself, so that they have a different user-defined colored DMD. This is nothing official to collect. Download a DMD color palette you like and change the displayed colors in the DMD as you wish (ok, it's a bit more complicated, but it describes the point). The placeholders are just there to load those ROMs within VPinMAME. In the official DAT they don't even exist, these are only in the SAMBuild version.

This seems to be the best you can get for now (from my point of view).
But the developers once had those ROMs. Many ROMs came from MAME, so maybe some stuff can be found in MAME Rollback collections. Hopefully we will get some of them someday.
Keep up searching.. I will :D

how do u scan the samples? i use the pinmame.exe in clrmame and i can only select roms and sets

clrmamepro uses a seperate option in settings for samples paths:
Settings > Drop down arrow box > Sample-Paths > add your samples folder here.

If importing the pinmame.exe doesn't give you samples, then try making the dat manually using piname -listinfo OR pinmame -listxml and then edit the dat to include a ROM manager header.

I tried different combinations but always end up with 126 missing samples. Strangely though, the 6 sets that are missing samples adds up to 108

If a set exists with no ROM dumps, then the ROM manager can't assign the samples to it and thus lists them as missing.
To get around this, simply make an empty zip archive using the set name and drop it in your ROM path folder.

It's similar to how people create dummy sample files for mame, but this is silly because you're giving the illusion that these missing samples then exist, or at least to noob scanners :)

EDIT:
Also, some sets require both pinmame (genpin in MAME) and s3250u3 samples, but I don't think ROM managers can handle both, and so it's easier just to add pinmame samples to the s3250u3 archive to clear up scan errors.
