Just realized that several jongs uses a template snapshot:

Can work out a script to detect all of those without much hassle.

As an example, the screenshot stored at MARP for Mahjong Hana no Momoko gumi (Japan 881201), ROMset "hanamomo", is as pictured in Kale's post. However, the actual table as played in that driver looks like below, which Barry can upload if he cares.

I think I'll let somebody that cares more about Mahjong than I do take up that cause from there.

Proof of concept:

List of mahjong snaps matching the template one:
https://pastebin.com/8UMyamjb

List of missing mahjong snaps (404). Some of these are clones (catver.ini doesn't have a separation between parent and clones):
https://pastebin.com/7ADLTiYK

TBD: find a pythonic way to run MAME, make a snap, close it off, rinse and repeat then downconvert to GIFs.
Not hard just time consuming ;)

ETA: Done, used Irfanview for the batch conversions (which I hope I got ok):
