Old user trying to figure out the new dat set works
« on: April 10, 2020, 03:01:43 PM »
Hi,

I have been out of retro gaming for a few years (lack of time).  Since I have time now to back to my hobby, I am trying to figure out how the dats work.  My last year using dats was 2012.

At that time, when downloading the Tosec ZIP file, it contains all the dats for all system the structure of the root directory was:

CUES
Scripts
Tosec
Tosec-ISO
Tosec-Pix

In the Tosec main directory, I would find most of the dats files from Acorn xxxx to Watara Supervison xxxx


Now looking at the most current zip files  I see the following directory structure

CUES
Scripts
Tosec

However, the Tosec directory only contain DAt from Acorn XXXXX  to COmmodore C128 XXXXX

What happenned with all the other dats that were in the 2012 files?  Is the current ZIP file only containing changed files?

I am very confused.... anyone can helP?

Thanks in advance

Thanks a lot,

Very strange, I downloaded the file again and it unzipped correctly with all the files... Not sure what happened but thanks

Probably the download stopped half way for some reason.
If you don't use an unzip method that reports errors, then the method you use extracts only what it can.
(it is possible depending on the compress mode)
