Re: How do I rename a ROM entry?

If I scan a folder with, say, .dll files it does list the dll's in it. But doesn't add the .iso files in the same directory. If any file types are allowed, why don't the .iso's show up? Maybe it doesn't like files over 800mb-2gb? RC is made to primarily handle compressed files (zip, 7z...). It can ...

Re: How do I rename a ROM entry?

How do I create a datafile to import? Dont I need a SHA or CRC fore each file? This should give you a way to do it manually (sorry, i don't know of any tools). It will generate a datafile which you can use as a template to create your own. In order to do that, you should enter in the .dat (or .xml)...

Re: How do I rename a ROM entry?

You could add custom dat entries in the datafile then. After that, you could re-create an RC database including them.

If you eliminate that possibility, then there is a chance that the combination of datafile and romfiles you use has caused a hidden bug to appear, either in RC or in Wine. In any case, since in that case it would be a developer issue, only Eric could help.

Well, "Out Of Memory" should be clear enough. Maybe the computer actually does not have enough memory to support what you're trying to do. Two questions would be: do the two computers have the same amount of memory and are you trying to scan the same datafile with the same rom folders? If you wish t...

Well, when you can either click on a rompath to fix all roms in that path, or click on a specific rom inside the rompath to fix that rom only. Choose wisely and proceed with caution. :)

Create a new DB from the datafile and add a new roms folder in which copy only the files you wish to check/fix. In any case, have a backup of your roms somewhere, just in case something goes wrong. RomCenter has protection though (when it deletes files, it can be configured to move them to the Recyc...

Hi.

Search the forums, but IIRC, the mame dat files are not directly compatible with RC3.71 any more. RC4 final was released a couple of weeks ago, which is based on .NET 4.0 (which is compatible with Windows XP). Download the zip (non-install version) and try it out to see if it works.

Hi there,

Personally when upgrading RC4 version x to version y, i just copy the new files over the old ones and execute RC. This retains the old settings. Then, when opening a database, it is just upgraded to the new version (when necessary) and all paths are also retained.
