CLearMamePro Dat Use
« on: December 29, 2009, 02:49:00 AM »
I am french, and my english, is not so good (very bad), and my knowledge from cmp too.

Some many year, i am a fan of tosec, all my Youth ... Atari st etc etc. Yes, i know, i am a old man  ;D

i dl all the missing tosec files torrent on pdome site.

I am sure thats all my tosec is up to date (3 branche) , except some Trandy TRS (with copyright ??)

you can explain in some word, how i can use the entire dat with the cmp option to preserve my old directory structure.
 il wil hope not select one by one (1000 arghhhhhh) . i have a moment use TIM (and create my own db) , but this software have many probleme with the renaming Zip tool and crc.

Cmp pro it's à best choice.

If you have a easy solution, I am a customer lol

Thank for your job

Hi there :)
Your English isn't very good but i will try to answer, you might want to try using|en| if you don't understand this, anyway i'm almost sure PD tracker doesn't have the 3 branches yet, you will probably have the iso ones that didn't change, most of the main and few of the pix part.

TIM is bad and doesn't support this dats so you really need to use cmp, a good part of folder structure changed and you should create these new folders, if you delete all old tosec dats from clrmame pro folder and add the older ones, then load all dats with batch scan mode it will recognize configurations from the similar old dats (the older versions), newer ones will probably need to be configured.

Anyway, i've to go now and you probably won't understand much with this, i can't help you out with french too so my suggestion is asking in pd forum, they are a big community with lots of good folks that speak french and use cmp frequently so they can actually help you out.

The best solution would be generate all new folders for pix + main (with the batch files for example), generate cmp configuration for all those new dats/folders (i don't know if there is some tool for this) and then do some rebuilding. :P

To finish - sorry

i have made my own little programm with freebasic to change all 6 variable used on each cmp file on the clearmamepro settings folder with the good name and directory
better than all one by one

i load all set on cmppro
i load all set with batch
i move all set on the unique profile
i launch my application with my own directory structure
i must just re-check  all and verify all set not scanned (big work to do)
i have time ... ::)

I hope have no new surprise !! 8)
