A couple of random requests...
« on: 28 March 2012, 12:35 »

....whilst you still in a coding mood.   :)

a) I love the h/r/s attributes warning option. I know it may sound very anal, but it does bug me when images have incorrectly applied attributes. Can these warnings be saved somewhere if enabled (maybe as part of the scanner fixdat or log?). I'm asking for when scanning in batch mode as it would be easy to miss any warnings under than situation.
b) Speaking of batch mode, at the moment (I believe from personal experience unless recently changed) if CMP loads a DAT and finds a problem such as no path set/found (could be because an external hard drive isn't connected or turned off for example) it will skip the DAT and go onto the next. It would be more useful to throw up an error rather than continuing, as it would be easy to get into a situation (as I have in the past) of thinking a set has been scanned and is 'complete', but in fact the batch mode just keeps 'skipping' past it because of this issue during a batch run at some point in the past.

Thanks for listening.....

how about a warningswindow log file and a batcher log file.....then at least you get all warnings and in the batcher log you can see if a scan was done or not...

Even reverting the "Missing Sets" and "Missing ROMs" field to "-not scanned yet-" as a way to identify them would be a start.

Yup, batch mode issue resolved - works like a charm. Just resets to 'not scanned'. BTW tested x64 only though, since that's what I use.

Thanks much.... especially for the rapid turnaround! Fingers crossed for HRS logging...
