If I'm thinking what your thinking, wouldn't they be on the previous downloads section of mamedev.org? ..along with the older version of the emu.

I just moved it to C:\MameUI64, and lo and behold, games are working now.

Congrats! Time to live it up! :)

 

Haven't used the DAT files, though.

I had some luck reducing files & storage on my RetroPie setup with an existing .DAT file, but no luck finding ones for MAMEUI64 + respective ROM set revision.

Speaking of rom sets, where does one get .DAT files(or is it XML?) for various rom set versions? I have a rather large ROM set, where I would rather slim 'er down to just originals. 

what kind of rom subset dat file are you looking for. E.g. golden age arcade games

Any & all arcade games.

 

I noticed there's a "golden age" section in MAME. Is there any way to tweak the settings to allow more games in the list? Or is it a static list?

Maybe you can use the exe in the Arcade version of mame with clrmamepro to reduce your rom set.

If you have a non-merged set you can reduce the size by converting to a split or merged set.

 

You can add to the "golden age" filter in mameui just as you would with a custom filter.

Ah this version is much nicer.

 

When I type in a specific name(one I just made up) in the filters column, should it add itself to the list at the left? So far, it's not for me, but I shall try again.

Sorry I shouldn't have said filters. In mameui you can create your own folder by creating an ini file in the "Folders" subdirectory.
