Yup.... it pisses me right off prepping the next TOSEC release. LOL.

In reality it is not a big deal, most (all?) modern 'ROM' managers can handle either EOL type DAT, I just like to keep all the TOSEC DATs in Windows format rather than Unix for consistency, and therefore it's just ANOTHER thing to check when new DATs get submitted.

Though I guess it does serve a practical purpose when contributors are manualy checking/amending DATs, though I would hope they using something a bit more sophisticated than vanilla Notepad!

You are quick!   :o   I'm embarrassed now for being slow sorting out an example...

I've tested this on a random selection of TOSEC sets (both single rom per and set, and multi rom per set) and seems to work a treat... thank you.

Sorry... got really caught up at work. Will try and send some examples later tonight. Apologies for the delay!

Sorry, wasn't around over weekend. Depreciated.

Let me create one and send over in a bit...

Quick question: do you know why Dir2Dat randomly seems to choose either Windows or Unix line endings? I can't figure out the pattern of why it does this, though it does seem to favour Unix.

Any idea why? Or it is possible to add option to choose which every time?


I have another small request, though it may already exist and I just don't know it!

Keyboard short cuts for frequently used commands, such as switching between scanner/rebuild/profiler etc.

What do you think?

I have a small request: can we have h/r/s attribute warnings saved in log?

Quick question...

Do you know if CMP handles folders/paths in a different way to WinRAR?

The reason I ask is in regards to DATs which include a very large number of ROMs in an individual set (Yori Yoshizuki's Unrenamed DATs for example). Rebuilding these to RAR can take ages, especially once the 'set' becomes large since every additional (tiny) 'rom' that gets added causes the whole set to be re-compressed again.

So... what I typically do with these DATs is rebuild uncompressed first, then use WinRAR to compress each set (only one pass per set then), then switch CMP back to 'compress with rar' and scan. This works pretty well, EXCEPT if the set contains folders/paths. CMP doesn't recognise any sub-folders created by WinRAR. Any ideas? Are there different ways to store/declare paths in RAR archives?

Failing when I attach an archive...

clrmame Discussion / Scanning issue on specific file
« on: 14 October 2012, 15:53 »
I'm experiencing a weird issue scanning a set with a specific file.

If I use Redump DAT 'Audio-CD' and rebuild the CUE file 'D's Diner - The Director's Cut (Japan) ([3DO] D no Shokutaku - The Director's Cut Bundle).cue', it rebuilds fine. However, when I then scan the DAT CMP hangs on this set. I have not rebuilt the actual image yet, the set ONLY includes the CUE atm.

I'm using:
MS Windows 7 Ultimate 64-bit SP1
ClrMamePro v4.08a
WinRAR v4.20

I am rebuilding to a RAR archive. I experience the same behaviour if I manually add the CUE using WinRAR.

Pertinent files attached.

Any ideas?

(same for rar).

That would be great...

clrmame Discussion / Re: WinRAR suggestion/query
« on: 10 July 2012, 16:49 »
OK, cool. Would be good if it can/you can implement... is difference between it taking a few seconds (rename) to potentially >20mins (add/del) depending on set.
