How to create dat file for RomCenter 1.70

Post by caius » Fri Apr 02, 2010 11:53 pm

Hi,
RomCenter 3.XX is great but I'm also using the old 1.70 version, I found his .zip "darg and drop" utility very usefull.So, my question is : How can I create a DAT suitable for RomCenter 1.70 file from latest MAME? I was able to find only DAT suitable for ROmCenter 1.70 files until MAME 0.129 release.
Thanks

P.S.
Or better: How can convert DAT file for RomCenter 3.XX to 1.70 version?

Yes, thanks , I managed to convert it with Datutil using this sintax:

datutil -f romcenter2 MAME 0.137u1.dat


P.S.

The drag and drop .ZIP scan function was very usefull, why didn't exist anymore in new 3.XX Rocenter?

Because it can be achieved by adding a 'incoming' folder, put your new roms inside and refresh it under romcenter.
