hello there

Pandemonium what exactly are the "Invalid Sets: 30" ??

File name with unicode caracters on name ?

Also there are a weird problem on the Sega Genesis game dat

There is a space on the name of "Strider (1990)(Capcom - Sega)(EU-US)(en) .zip"

on the dat :

game (
   name "Strider (1990)(Capcom - Sega)(EU-US)(en) "
   description "Strider (1990)(Capcom - Sega)(EU-US)(en) "
   rom ( name "Strider (1990)(Capcom - Sega)(EU-US)(en) .bin" size 1048576 crc b9d099a4 md5 fcab622a6e56f7e9b1e0907ab5a630df sha1 26fe42d13a01c8789bbad722ebac05b8a829eb37 )
)


That leads to CLRmame pro wanting to remove the space and Romvault wanting to insert it ,)

Hi Tim,

Thank you for the interest on our work as usual :)

Direct to the questions, the invalid sets are just sets with names that do not follow the rules we currently describe on the TNC. A few examples are sets with date fields like "1990-10-2x" or with characters like "(" or ")" in the title field. This happens for several reasons, possible (future) changes in the TNC, problems with the tool that checks that and so on.

Concluding, there is no problem at all with the sets, just some names that are different than what the parser expected.

About the Genesis dat, yup that is a mistake, thanks for reporting that! That extra empty space shouldn't be there and will be fixed in the future :)
