@Claudio16:
I rechecked your fixdat with the fix from vadr62270 and I have nothing more.

@sting932003 and niallquinn:
Sorry, I have nothing more for you.

Maybe someone can have a look into MAME Rollback ROMs.

All stern 'should' be here > [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

The problem is that they replace older versions with the latest download links.
If anyone is is good at/has the tools to do it, then webcrawling their site might find them. I suspect all older versions are stored 'somewhere' on their server.

Here's an example > [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login
So my guess is that finding the variations of "/776/ACDC_PRO_english.zip" will find the older dumps ?

You are right, at least some of them are still there. I have already found some back in the days of PinMAME 2.8 and 2.9, that's why we have only 32 missings :-)
CarnyPriest also did a great job in finding some ROMs especially for 3.0, but he doesn't have those 32 as  well. Maybe they are there. I would need a tool that tries various URLs and downloads everything it finds. I know of HTTrack, but as far as I know, it just follows links, which is not what we need here.
Can someone help?

I assume you just downloaded by following links?
That I already did as mentioned before.
You would have to "know" the URLs of the files, maybe by guessing or trying every possible letter.
The problem is, that the files are there, but not linked anymore.

So what you're saying "AOL sock cucker"* is that we're knackered, and like previous versions of PM, we're not going to get a complete set?

Thanks!

I think we could get it complete.
The MIAs are all Stern ROMs. Assuming they are still hosted on their website although not linked anymore, they are still downloadable if we find out the URLs (as Connie said as well).
