Small incorrections in DATs
« on: April 22, 2010, 06:16:06 PM »
Hello,
after using various renamers finally got my collection stable (I think). Thanks to everyone that contributed to the various projects.
Now, i scanned my collection with a duplicate finder and found various dupes. Could someone verify the DATs in question and tell me if some are really dupes?
Also, in Archimedes DAT, 'Impression Jr." it's an application (WP/DP) and not a game (I own an Acorn).
Thank you.

list attached.

P.S. Sorry for my english.

Thanks for the report!

I'll take a look at the '32 in 1' image in Sega Mark III/Atari 2600.

Unfortunately I'm not actively involved in any of the other DATs so I'll have to leave those to be investigated by other authors...

Keep up the good work...   ;)

Hi bernie,

Thanks for those tips, renamers will have check the dats/images so it may take some time before it gets fixed but the info is highly appreciated :)
After a brief look at some dats of the dats i can see that some files are indeed duplicated (crc/md5), we've tried to fix cases where that happened before but mostly inside the same dats/systems i think. Sets with various roms are a bit more complex as you know since some dupes could be false positives, like a readme file or an image that is indeed similar between 2 sets. Anyway that should be checked and thanks again for the info.

If you have anything more to help us out feel free to do so :)

It's nice to see that some are ZZZ-UNK in one system and correct renamed for the other, so you already can asume to remove the ZZZ-UNK because it belongs to the second.

"32 in 1 (19xx)(-)[p][ b]" is incorrectly in Sega Mark III/Master System. The image is actually a Atari VCS/2600 image.

I will remove from the Sega DAT and make a note in the latest 'Cassiel FTP WIP' thread when I upload.
