Release:

TOSEC - DAT Pack - Complete (3096) (TOSEC-v2021-02-14).zip
MD5 624c7fc987ccd5641c9565eb0ba31f0d
SHA1 c2f2dc4e7d7fbe5f28079e07d814d203f399e88e

In file: "./TOSEC/Apple II - Applications - [DSK] (TOSEC-v2021-02-12_CM).dat"

- The name "VCR Companion (1988-09-28)(Brøderbund)(IIE)(Disk 3 of 4)[[128K]" should correct the "[[128k]" to be "[128k]".

In file: "./TOSEC/Commodore C128 - Applications - [D64] (TOSEC-v2020-07-03_CM).dat"
The following names should correct "(Program(" to be "(Program)":

- "Superscript 128 (1986-03-03)(Precision Software)(DK)(Side 1 of 2)(Program([a2][40-80 column][autoboot]"
- "Superscript 128 (1986-03-03)(Precision Software)(DK)(Side 1 of 2)(Program([a5][40-80 column][autoboot]"
- "Superscript 128 (1986-04-10)(Precision Software)(Side 1 of 2)(Program([a][40-80 column][autoboot]"

In file: "./TOSEC-ISO/Sega Dreamcast - Samplers (TOSEC-v2020-07-20_CM).dat"

- The name "Dreamcast Promotion Disk - Dorimaga Tokusei! GD-ROM v1.002 (1999)(Sega)(JP)[!][[Dreamcast Magazine 1999-04-02]" shold correct the "[!][[Dreamcast" to be "[!][Dreamcast".

In file: "./TOSEC/Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Games - [SCL] (TOSEC-v2021-01-15_CM).dat"

- The name "Flying Shark (1987)(Firebird)[h Slider, BrokImSoft '98[t]" should correct the "'98[t]" to "'98][t]".
- The name "King (1995)(Sharin, Andrey)(RU)[[aka King]" should correct "[[aka" to be "[aka".

Additionally (in the same file), having ()'s inside of other ()'s complicates parsing. These are not errors, but I do suggest in the following names change the "(128K (load in USR0 mode))" to "(128K - load in USR0 mode)" to eliminate inner ()'s and avoid ambiguity.

- "Holly (1993)(BC Masters)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(RU)"
- "Holly 2 (1993)(BC Masters)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(RU)"
- "Super Tetris 2 (1996)(Accept Corp)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(RU)"
- "Katharsis (1998)(Master Home Computers Group)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(RU)[Funtop]"
- "Inner Universe (1994-06)(Extacy-3)(128K (load in USR0 mode))"
- "TriNitroToluene (1992)(President, The)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(NO)(en)"
- "TriNitroToluene (1992)(President, The)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(NO)(en)[a]"
- "TriNitroToluene (1992)(President, The)(128K (load in USR0 mode))(NO)(en)[a2]"

Likewise, in file "./TOSEC/Commodore C64 - Music - [T64] (TOSEC-v2021-02-11_CM).dat", the publisher "(Moz(IC)art)" complicates parsing. I have no suggestion for this that fits TOSEC conventions... (My data set re-encodes the names using '{' and '}' to separate the parts, instead of '(' and ')' which can occur more commonly in names and titles.)

- "Depressed (1989)(Moz(IC)art)"
- "Different (1989)(Moz(IC)art)"

Oops, I missed copy-pasting one:

In file: "./TOSEC/Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Games - [TAP] (TOSEC-v2021-01-15_CM).dat"
The name "Exolon (1987)(Hewson Consultants)(48K-128K)[h Nmi-Soft\x7f]" (where the \x7f is the literal binary character 0x7f), the \x7f should be corrected. I only guess that it simply needs to be removed.

Thanks for these - I have fixed the Apple II one now for next release and will notify the maintainers of the other dats.

My parser has no problems with this, however I'll give your suggestion a thought.
