PlugIn directive is ignored.

Post by sbeaudoin » Tue Oct 04, 2011 10:26 pm

Hi, I have searched for more than an hour an I can't see what I am doing wrong. I downloaded the latest no-intro dat file for N64 who is in clrMame format. I used datUtil to convert it to the xml format. I modified the dat file to include the plugin directive :

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE datafile PUBLIC "-//Logiqx//DTD ROM Management Datafile//EN" "http://www.logiqx.com/Dats/datafile.dtd">
<datafile>
	<header>
		<name>Nintendo - Nintendo 64</name>
		<description>Nintendo - Nintendo 64</description>
		<plugin>n64.dll</plugin>
		<category>no-intro romset</category>
		<version>20080210</version>
		<date>2008-02-10</date>
		<author>SolidSnake & No-Intro Staff | www.gbadat.altervista.org</author>
	</header>
...
I then created a database file from this dat file in romcenter. The problem is, it still use the arcade.dll plugin (I see this in the "about" dialog in the plugin tab).

I tried to copy the n64.dll to the romcenter folder (parent of "plugin"), no effect. I used procmon to see what dll is loaded in the database creation and the database log process and it don't event try to find n64.dll.

Please help me and also, I would be glad is there was a possibility to select the add-in in the preferences.
