clrmame Discussion / specpls3_flop.xml issue
« on: 31 May 2015, 08:11 »
I seem to be having a problem with the specpls3_flop.xml from mame0162 when scanning via system settings. It rebuilds all 128 files fine from scratch but the scanning keeps showing all 128 zips as missing.

Don't know if it's something to do with the fact that the file is called specpls3_flop.xml and inside the xml it lists softwarelist name="spectrum_flop".

I renamed softwarelist name="spectrum_flop". to softwarelist name="specpls3_flop" and cleared the cache but it's still showing them as missing.

On a sidenote once I unticked specpl3_flop from the systems...the scan seemed a lot faster (but that might be all in my mind).

Thanks, that sounds hopeful... I've wanted multi-folder rebuilding/scanning since I first touched TOSEC. That and the capability of having a dat which will recreate a folder structure that contains both normal files and archives (ala GB64).

I found the batch mode slow in the past (I last used it years ago) because I generally do a full rebuild so I give CLRMAME a folder with a hundred gigs or more of ROMs in it and let it do it's stuff. The problem I had with multiple dats was it would parse this source over and over and over again. Join DATs together and this extra parsing of the source folder was reduced dramatically.

I must admit I'm not a great lover of the batch facility, I've tried it the past to do a full TOSEC ROM rebuild and it would have taken for ever. In the end for TOSEC, I made a small program that joined the hundreds of dats into about 4 combined dats with "rebuildto" fields - strewth was that fast. There were a few problems with scanning and duplicate names but they were fairly easy to overcome.

Anyway, this thread got me thinking why not do the same thing for the MESS SoftwareLists and take some of the pain out of rebuilding/scanning process.

I took my original TOSEC joining program and altered it to parse the MESS XMLs and create a single simple clrmame.dat file (I ignored clone relationships and chds and used the .dat format because I had already done the code for that before).

It actually works fairly well, coupled with some slight changes to clrmame it could work really well for MESS and TOSEC.

Anyway, I've documented the current process and have some questions/suggestions here:-

Thanks...guess I was blind :(

Never knew there was even a right click menu there.

Difference between that and mamediff for my cheat renaming wasn't great thankfully (under 10 differences) and I fixed them at the time as I thought I'd made a few cut and paste errors converting the mamediff output into a batch renaming script for my master cheat.dat.

Thanks for the double check though :)

Any chance of adding <description> to the report at a future date so that for simple renames where the roms stay the same but the description (longname) changes it will create a report like this:-

[ Tehkan World Cup ] [Tehkan World Cup (set 1) ]

The Rename Wizard is not directly visible at the moment...but still easy to find.
Check out popup menus if you want to know more ABOUT it.

Sorry, I must be blind...I can't see it anywhere. Can you give me some pointers to where to find the popup menu?
