Title: Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Compilations - Games - [Z80] (TOSEC-v2006-06-06)
Post by: Diaboł on January 02, 2010, 04:17:53 PM
In the previous TOSEC release there was a set called Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Compilations - Games - [Z80] (TOSEC-v2006-06-06). Because it's missing in the last release I'd like to ask what has happen with the files from that set? Are they merged into other Spectrum sets?

Could it be that they were moved to:
Sinclair\ZX Spectrum\Compilations\Various\[Z80]  ?
I checked my folder and don't have any Compilations\Games\[Z80].

Hi Diabol(? - your l is strange :P)

First of all thanks for your interest and your support, at least from my part they are really appreciated :)
About your question, after a few checks: that datfile was present in the 2006-06-12 release by the last time, after that it was dropped out at the last release before this one (2007-03-14) with the following note:
Quote
Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Compilations - Games - [Z80] > replaced by: Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Compilations - Various - [Z80]
That's why it isn't present in the 2009 release or even in this one too 2007-03-14 (http://www.tosec.org/userfiles/Complete_(TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip) :P

Anyway thanks again for asking that because it could be a mistake (there were a few on this release) and we need to fix all the ones we find out soon :)

Thank you for answer. The set was dropped indeed. There was 9 files and I think they don't belong to any set now as long as my clrmamepro didn't make any mistake during rebuilding :-). BTW the I is nor really I it's suppose to be Ł (a Polish diacritic mark).

Our polish letter might be problematic on international forums  :)

AFAIK, the only "dropped" files were a few TZX which were actually Sam Coupe files rather than ZX Spectrum - they should appear in a future Sam Coupe dat.  The Z80 files from this dat were picked up by some of the other Spectrum dats (couldn't tell you which now though - sorry)
