Re: How does romcenter handle CHD files?

Rom are processed as chd if they have the flag 'Disk' in the datafile.
The crc calculator extracts then the sha-1 value from the mame chd header.

Re: 3DS romset question

Crc is calculated taken from the zip header if the file is zipped. It is calculated from the binary content else. For console dat, a plugin can be use to calculate the crc of the game code only, skipping the cartridge copier header. This way, the crc remains the same whatever cartridge copier is use...

Re: How does romcenter handle CHD files?

Hi Romcenter will store CHD unzipped in a folder with same name as the game, as expected in mame. You can try it on several chd from a backup and check if it is what you expect. http://wiki.romcenter.com/wiki/doku.php?id=chd Btw, final release will be out by the end of the month.

Re: Deleted files/roms etc, where do they go?

I just checked and you're right. It seems there is a problem with moving to recycle. I will fix that of course.

Fyi, final release should be ready very soon. There will be a windows installer version and a portable (same as beta versions).

Re: A couple of issues

Hi

The plugin used with your dat in romcenter 4 is probably not the same as in romcenter 3.7. The plugin used is written in the status bar.

Does it ask for the plugin when you created the database ?
Try to use another plugin. Create a new database and choose the other option when asked.

Re: Please re-add the ability to work with unzipped roms

I have fixed the problem. It will be released with the final version.

mgd is a snes rom format. snes plugin shares code from ucon64. You can read more on this format there.

Re: Please re-add the ability to work with unzipped roms

Can you tell me if a plugin is used in your tests. The current plugin is displayed in the status bar. Should be crc, or snes.

I suspect a conflict with a new bios file recently added in the dat (and which must be zipped). I will check.

Re: RC4 renaming roms to mgd

Romcenter analyses rom structure and rename them with the correct extension.
Just deny the use of snes plugin when you import the dat (some rom in special formats won't be detected any more).

I will improve this part in a future release.

Re: Please re-add the ability to work with unzipped roms

Romcenter 4 does not automatically zip your roms. You can keep your console roms unzipped.
Which datafile are you using ?

Re: Crc changing on each load

If no plugin is defined in dat, romcenter attempts to detect if one has been used to create the dat. The detection is based on crc of specific games for consoles (defined in romcenter.config file).
So, the best you can do is to put the plugin line in the dat.

Re: Trouble sorting roms

This is the normal behaviour. See http://wiki.romcenter.com/wiki/doku.php?id=1g1r

If 1g1r is selected, only one rom per game will be loaded in db, all others will remain unknown and appear in grey.

ps: swith to rc4 ;)
