The rom-extension isn't correct.
at the moment, AM search for files with extension: ".3ds .cci"
you have to seperate multiple items with semicolon: .3ds;.cci

romext               .3ds;.cci

Not sure if this will help, but I had a similar problem before and this was how I solved the problem

remove/delete  thegamesdb.net from "info_source"

maybe you left an unused space character at the end?


I've set a space at the end of emulator configuration, started AM, generated Romlist and AM crashed...
After restarting AM again, the space character was automatic removed?!

it seems, that AM can't work with spaces at the end, if you edit the emulator config before...
