Title: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on September 17, 2015, 03:24:19 PM
So you may have noticed that I haven't been around for nearly two years. Stuff happened. I was busy. What more do you want?

Thankfully, I am no longer busy at all, and since no one else has fixed the GB(C) DATs since I was gone, I figure I'll do them myself.

I don't have much to show so far, so I won't post the DAT, but tomorrow night after I have a lot more, I'll post it. I'm currently basing it off the GB(C) GoodSet, and I'm doing them in alphabetical order so I don't get confused.

Also for the love of god, if I make any mistakes, please tell me. I'm doing something ridiculously massive, I'm bound to make mistakes. More experienced members, please guide me.

Wish me luck!

Okay, this is my first crappy attempt. I know it doesn't have many games, and I know the DAT and the ROM names are probably sloppy, but I haven't done this in about two years. Hopefully you can help me out!

New version! I finally finished (almost) all of the ROMs beginning with A in the GoodSet. Really this is all just renaming, the actual breaking up into separate types will come later.

Cool, welcome back!

Oh hey, it's you! That one with the face! I've seen you around.

Didn't get as many as I hoped today, but I had a looot of stuff to do, so yeah.

Post by: megaminxwin on September 21, 2015, 03:35:05 PM
Again, bit of a poor showing today, but tomorrow I'm planning to get at least 50 sets done. That's... that's going to be interesting.

Thanks! Yeah, I'm planning to stick around until at least the first draft of this DAT is done, because I feel somewhat guilty about letting the previous one go...

Speaking of, here's the latest WIP. I lost count of how many I did, but I think it's more than 50.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on September 23, 2015, 04:23:25 PM
Not too many again, but I've had worse days.

Should I move this into the WIP forum? That's basically what this is.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on September 24, 2015, 03:47:29 PM
Hooray, I've finished off the Bs! Who thinks I should go completely insane tomorrow and do every single C set that there is in GoodGB(C)? This is going to take forever otherwise.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on September 25, 2015, 04:25:53 PM
Welp, I did it. I'm really tired now. Yay.

Someone please check this over if it's not being done already, I'm not 100% positive on it.

Cheers. Now I actually know the order, something I really should have paid more attention to... I don't know how to fix the "publisher is mandatory" problems, though, considering I have them quite clearly there. Weird.

No, I don't have it, because for some reason it's not actually up on the site? I'm assuming this is a mistake.

EDIT: Okay, apparently that was a lot harder than I thought to fix. Didn't add a single new one, only fixed old ones. Sorry guys  :(

Post by: megaminxwin on September 29, 2015, 03:47:36 PM
Got a couple more in. The main problem is that there are thousands of Game Boy ROMs, and I'm only up to 843, which is slightly demoralising. Then I have GBC, and then I do a full check to see what games need to go in which category (educational, games, demos, etc)... THIS WILL BE FUN let's do this.

So my computer just roasted itself. Thankfully I kept backups, but it's gonna be another day at least before I'm back on track.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 07, 2015, 02:53:31 PM
I'm back! I don't have many new ROMs here, but it's a good start. Hopefully I'll continue at a good pace.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 09, 2015, 02:29:48 PM
So.

Many.

Damn.

Doraemon.

ROMs.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 10, 2015, 02:21:07 PM
Wow, I'm nearly up to a thousand. And still only at D... christ.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.

Only up to a thousand, which is somewhat slow progress for two days... Sorry.

Again, not too much, but I'm planning on a tonne tomorrow. Wish me luck!

Okay so it's been three days and I have hardly anything to show for it. Sorry.

Should I try and post less frequently with more ROMs? I think I might do that.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 28, 2015, 01:58:30 PM
I've decided I'm going to post once a week from now on. Sounds reasonable to me.

Yaaay we broke the 100 kilobyte barrier

Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 09, 2016, 12:00:52 PM
Apparently I was, I can only apologise.

ANYWAY. New DAT, frickin finally. I lost interest for a while there, but now that I have a new computer, I'm properly back.
Title: Re: Imma fix Game Boy.
Post by: megaminxwin on October 10, 2016, 11:17:42 AM
I've decided to work through the ROMs in the GoodGBx set by letter. I'll do one initial at a time, so for example, all the ones beginning with L at a time, all the ones beginning with M, etc.. That should speed things up.

Also I won't sort them into categories like applications, games etc. until I'm done organising them all in the first place. That'd just slow things down unnecessarily, I feel.

Anyway, new DAT, finishing off the Ls. The Ms might take a couple days, since there are 189 of them when they're merged...
