What are the CPS-2 Roll-Up Packs?
The Roll-Up Pack List is a documentation of ROMs that can be placed on an SD card for a complete CPS2 kit setup that's ready to use. They include every CPS-2 game and hack. This will save people from having to scour the forums to find everything. I'll update my lists whenever new content is available.

How to Use
Format a microSD card as FAT32 using Windows, not Mac or Linux.
Extract a pack to it using 7-Zip. If your card is the I: drive for example, the layout must be exactly I:\games\rom folders\

New vs Old Pack?
The current pack is for the latest firmware, wired to support key writing. This allows it to flash MAME ROMSs, with accuracy so perfect that Twin Galaxies is now accepting submissions on the kit. The old set is for the pre-key-writing firmware.

Troubleshooting
The most common kit problem is SD card incompatibility. Test multiple cards before reporting problems, especially if they are larger than 4GB. Format only as described above. Format the SD card every time you update your pack, before copying new files to it. This prevents corruption and alphabetizes the game list. Format and re-copy everything, every time. "No SD Card Detected" probably means you didn't create a \games folder. It can also mean that your microSD isn't compatible or needs to be formatted correctly.

I should ask, just to make sure. Does this have the Rockman 2 fix on it? Downloaded but hadn't pulled my kit from the cab yet to copy the files over yet. Sat down to play RMPB2 and had it lock up, realizing I hadn't put the patched version on myself... T_T
