Help with submitting new DAT files/ROMS
« on: September 03, 2013, 07:24:54 PM »

I have been interested in the TOSEC project for about 2 years now, but I have only recently decided to start contributing here. Right now I have updated the following systems,

Sharp X1
Tandy Radio Shack MC-10
Thomson TO8

with hundreds of new files. But now they''ve been sitting on my HD for a few months, so I would like to get them submitted so that others could use them and possibly provide corrections too. But how do I get them submitted to the project? Thanks in advance.

Hey Riley110,

First of all what do you mean by "updated". You renamed a few files, added new entries, or updated the datfiles? I''m not sure if someone is currently working with those datasets but any help is always welcomed. To start contributing you need to know a bit about our naming convention and also how to use and create datfiles (or edit them manually). It might seem hard at first but don''t get scared :)

Maybe someone around here might be able to help you a bit more. Once you have something to submit PM me and i will send you the details. The dats are normally verified to check for naming errors (using our tool) and later are added to the pack and release.

(Sorry for any errors here but i''m really tired today)

I did a bit of work on the TO8 dats a while ago, but I think that was just splitting the old "Various" dat. Happy to try and help answer any questions you might have.
