    the FBA core (fbalpha_libretro.dll) is more preferable for Neogeo emulation, lighter on system resources and other enhancements that only the FBA core can do.
    THE BEST METHOD to run PSX games (and everything else for that matter) is via Retroarch - http://buildbot.libretro.com/nightly/
    If you have any questions on how to set it up on Windows please feel free to ask, its very easy.

    It will but if the crc is does not match what the emulators is looking for then it will report them as missing and refuse to use what you have

    another words those chips have been dumped different ways an older method and a newer method

    unless I have more information to go on I can't be of much help and the report is of no help either as you have stated yourself having the correct file names is not enough

    I don't know if the emulator comes with documentation with more info or even a clrmame dat file, but I would need more information
