XML data files for RomCenter 3

I have started re-uploading my datafiles in the new Generic XML format (supported by CMPro and RomCenter 3):

They are available from http://www.logiqx.com so please give them a try in RomCenter 3 and let me know how you get on.

The MAME SuperSet is a datafile which contains ROMs other than just MAME (e.g. Nebula, Kawaks, etc). You have downloaded the supplement which is to be used in addition to a MAME set. The supplement doesn't contain any MAME ROMs (hence only 172 games in your case). It sounds like you have completely ...

p.s.

It does fix the problem. You must still have the old version installed somewhere.

There is no difference between using DatUtil v2.32 in RomCenter or downloading my data files (which are generated with DatUtil v2.32).

You might find that today's release of DatUtil fixes the problem. MAME now describes resources differently (0.117u1 and 0.117u2) so an update was required for DatUtil to understand the new XML. Maybe this resulted in a data file that RomCenter couldn't handle properly (causing it to crash). Try the ...

I wasn't doing datafiles back at the time of MAME 0.34 (which was released 8 years ago). I would suggest that you download it onto a PC from http://www.mame.net/oldmame.html and see if it has the "listinfo" option. If it does then you should be able convert it to RomCenter format using DatUtil. Logiqx

It's the other tags (like author, version, refname) that I was thinking about. If I don't make DatUtil support them then they will get lost during conversions. ;)

Let me know when you decide on them and I'll add support.

I am guessing that it is from pocketheaven.com because a quick Google search showed them at the top as supplying a PSP datafile. I've had a look at it and their data file is in 2.00 format so I am guessing that the lack of filesize is something to do with the transition from 1.92 to 2.00 many years ...

Hi Eric, I don't know if you have seen my PM or e-mails. If you give me admin rights and access via FTP, I will make the necessary changes so that spam does not appear on this board. I've done it for 3 other boards so I am confident that I can upgrade this one without any effort or trouble. ;) Logiqx

There are two other significant possibilities: D) main set + multiple clone (treat like A) E) multiple clones w/o main set (the most complicated scenario) Anyway, I think that there are two important points here: 1) It is non-trivial to implement.

OK, suppose a game has 5 clones. To which clone the main game's files will be added? Select one of them arbitrarily? to that particular clone which requires these. if more than one does, pick one of those arbitrarily (to avoid duplicates, thats the whole point). That wouldn't actually work because ...

One final tip:

You can 'fix' the generated data file by running it through DatUtil...

datutil -f rc2 "<something>.dat"
... then rename datutil.dat

No, you've missed my point. DatUtil is what makes supporting non-listinfo/listxml emulators possible so it can't be removed unless Eric decides to write RomCenter 3 to support all of the formats that DatUtil provides (like Nebula/Nebula Jukebox drivers, M1 XML, etc). That would be quite a waste of E...

I've made a couple of additions to the XML this morning:

- Changed the M1 definition to 'm1.exe -d' (since m1.xml does not exist yet)
- Added RAINE
- Added Nebula Jukebox (which uses 'datutil -j')
