Some questions in batch rebuilding
« on: 31 December 2015, 12:25 »

hi!, i've been used laterly crlmamepro a lot and have a pair of questions,

In batchrun rebuilder, i don't understand why i can have "don't remove rebuilt source" and "always remove rebuild source", both unchecked, aren't both of them mutually exclusive?. What means when both are unchecked? sources are remove or not?

Also, what means when i have "skip complete folder after" 0 "skipped files". I know if i put a number, lets say 100, it work (i cant see skipping the folder once reach this number), but, if 0 is valid, what clrmamepro does?

thanks!!

I can answer the questions in detail next week. Happy New Year.

regarding the remove options, They should be radio buttons instead of check boxes. I will check this later.

Actually I cant check at the moment what a 0 value does. the option is rarely used....so please be patient till early 2016

No prob, answer when you could Roman!

The skip files when 0 "does" something, why?, because if i run a batchrun, not all files are detected (and rebuilt),
but if a run a single profile against, it works!

happy new year everyone!

They are not mutually exclusive!
If both are unchecked crlmame will remove or not-remove the sourcefiles according to the configuration of the single datfile that is loaded in that moment.
So basically the batcher option is an over-ride of the single datfile option.

ok!!

then, in case the profiles are loaded firstime, it's best to override it in the batchrunner, to be sure about...

thanks!

generally during a batch scan/rebuild, the single profile settings are used unless you tick some batcher options to overwrite them. So both options makes sense and in the UI you can only tick either none or one of them...so there they are mutually exclusive...maybe I should use radio buttons there.
But I hope the general usage is clear...you can overwrite the single profile settings either with "remove rebuilt source" or with the opposite to never remove them.

Regarding the "skip rompath" rebuild option...yes, 0 is not a clever value to fill in there....the test after a file was processed is not(#skipped_files_for_current_folder > #setup_max_files_for_skip)....
so if the first file was a valid, rebuilt one you get not(0 > 0) which is true...and the folder is skipped from then onwards. If the first file was a skipped one you get not(1 > 0) which is false and it continues...

Guess for the next version I will set the minimum value to 1 which will solve the problem
