Scan ROMs without subfolders
« on: 07 June 2023, 23:54 »

I want use clrmamepro for verifying images of PS2 discs from my collection. Use .DAT file by Redump.

Rebuilder can rename and move files into one directory, without creating subfolders - I have found this setting. But when I try to start scanner, it always shows a message: "The following not empty rompaths don't contain any valid set...".

Is it possible to scanning files right in root directory, without placing it in subfolders before?

No. The storing method is
Rompath/setname/file1…file n for deompressed sets or
Rompath/setname.zip (.7z/.rar) (where the archive holds file 1…file n) for compressed sets. Where file 1…file n corresponds to rom files of that one set.

You have to follow that.

If you want single-file sets on the same folder level you need to edit the datfile to have one set only holding all sets in one set.
