External MESS ListXML DAT File - Warning Message
« on: 20 September 2014, 05:50 »

Keep getting this warning message when I try to load an external MESS ListXML DAT file.



Normally I process MESS ListXML through DatUtil before processing in clrmamepro. Needed to test something out.

Clrmamepro doesn't have a problem with loading external MAME ListXML DAT file.

MESS ListXML included in the attachment below.

MESS -listxml format is slighlty different from MAME's output.
That's why you need to switch to "MESS" in Profiler->Create if you want to import data from a MESS binary.

For Software list xml files you can simply use them directly as "DATFILE" datfile type in cmpro's profiler.

But...you got a MESS -listxml output file....that cannot be loaded with the "DATFILE" type...
You can add an entry to your engine.cfg file like

engine (
   name MESS_DAT
   gamelist mess
   replace machine game
)

,restart cmpro, select (one click) your datfile, switch to the "MESS_DAT" type and click load...then it will work fine..

...but still...for MESS and MAME it's simply better and easier to use an exe-based datfile....Profiler->Create...

@Roman: Thanks for the help. I was looking at this link earlier before I made the post. Must have missed something when I went to make changes to engine.cfg.

@oddi: Thanks for pointing that out. My search skills suck.
