Interesting one, will look into that as I'm pretty sure I'm responsible for the addition to the Electron dats. From memory that was taken from MAME software lists but will investigate and clear up one way or the other.

ETA: Should have said it's good to see you again Cassiel, is this just a flying visit or can we expect to see more of you about these parts soon?

Cool.

I've had to rebuild my entire TOSEC collection again from scratch (don't ask), but it has afforded me the opportunity to spot some duplication errors. Will post more reports as I sort through them.

All reports welcome, I've been spending a lot of time recently cleaning up Apple II which is a mammoth task (and even after my current pass will still have plenty left to do) and I can only imagine how much work is needed on other systems that haven't been touched in years. Too many dats, too little time, but at least any time errors are flagged up we can sort them.

Oh, for sure. And only so many eyes.

I know back when I was actively DATing, I found CloneSpy super useful for spotting dupes.

Actually, might make a Tools post about that too...
