duplication across systems is to be expected as some disks can contain multiple system releases. Within the system dats there should be no duplication!

ok thanks. I will keep that in mind and very likely change my algorithm to handle this. Not sure how - maybe with links.

But thanks for the explanation.

Brilliant, thanks for your contributions! On first glance these look good and compliant with TNC which is excellent.

Looks to me like you've made the right call in terms of the copyright flag for each of them. On the first one, while not explicitly specified in TNC, my belief is that the (demo) tag generally excludes the use of development status tag and that you've made the right decision not to use (beta) here.

I'll make sure these are added to the DAT for next release and that you're credited as a contributor.

Thanks for this, we'll take a look and see how best to resolve these duplicates.

There is potentially an argument in my opinion for having dupes in some limited circumstances e.g. where we want to represent a file both as part of a collection but also in its respective category. Just a bit of a limitation of the system we use at the moment.

That said, I definitely want to minimise duplication so will look carefully at each of these and try to resolve appropriately.

Thanks for this, it's a strange one for sure. As far as I'm concerned, all files should have all three hashes. Looking at the dates, those haven't been touched in a while so presumably just a small historic oversight.

I'll take a look at them and update those DATs with MD5 values for the files.

Thanks for flagging this up, really appreciate it!

Hi,

here some additions to the 5200.

1) Combat II "demo" released at: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/17851-z-adventure-and-combat-ii-binary-demos/?tab=comments#comment-187485
If through the demo is (C) 2003, the post with download was available in Dec 2002. I'm not a law expert but should be freeware. It also could be seen as a beta-software. Please correct if other rules apply
Code: [Select]
<game name="Combat II (demo-playable) (2002-12)(Mean Hamster Software)(FW)">

</game>

2) DEBUG52 V1.10 released at: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/3236-5200-debugger/
sadly the linked page is down :-(. The Application has also a Copyright but was free to download so FW.

3) 5200 Doom released at: https://atariage.com/forums/topic/11577-5200-doom/
sadly the linked page is down. It is a tech demo, i don't have the source anymore but was according to the post released - thus PD

Database / Datfiles / duplicate SHA1 in DAT files
« Last post by doomwarrior on April 16, 2022, 11:21:26 AM »
Hi,

i currently write a little TOSEC mover and are a bit confused about the number of duplicate SHA1 checksum (with matching crc and md5). The worst systems are Ti-xx, C64, Radio Shark. I'm not sure whats up with that.

I can group them into 2 categories. Obviously duplicates entered in two TOSEC files. I'm not if this is desired. Example:
Code: [Select]
WARNING:root:TOSEC file {MGT Sam Coupe - Magazines - [DSK]/FRED Issue 04 (1990)(-)} with same sha1 {7ad3fa837dbfa9c92d0a039c5a0eb2c8948ef138} and matching {md5=True file=True} already found in other TOSEC file {Sinclair ZX Spectrum - Magazines - [DSK]/Fred issue 04 (19xx)(-)(+3)}
WARNING:root:TOSEC file {Commodore C64 - GEOS - [D64]/Geos (19xx)(-)(Disk 1 of 4 Side B)} with same sha1 {c5a34c8830ceb2aea41548a3f91fd7ae5ebdeac9} and matching {md5=True file=True} already found in other TOSEC file {Commodore C16, C116 & Plus-4 - Utilities - [D64]/GEOS v3.5 (1985)(CBM264 Software)(DE)(Disk 1 of 4 Side B)}
even through it is a bit odd to have different attributes for those entries.

But other entries are a bit strage:

Code: [Select]
WARNING:root:TOSEC file {Atari ST - Collections - Floppyshop/Floppyshop Demos 6116 (19xx)(Floppyshop)} with same sha1 {655cc46b10664057b4a8aa158d5806113da755a3} and matching {md5=True file=True} already found in other TOSEC file {Atari ST - Diskmags - [ST]/ST+ Issue 21 (1997-10)(ST+ Incorporating)[a2]}
WARNING:root:TOSEC file {Enterprise 64 & 128 - Games - [BAS]/Lander (19xx)(-)(PD)[basic]} with same sha1 {4a4c1572e14fbaadfddb9143a9738544fa7ae11a} and matching {md5=True file=True} already found in other TOSEC file {Enterprise 64 & 128 - Games - [Multipart]/Lander (198x)(-)(PD)[m zzzip][basic]}

the naming convention does not explain what to expect. For me I don't want to have duplicate files in different folders. What is the ruling here?

Database / Datfiles / Entries without MD5
« Last post by doomwarrior on April 16, 2022, 10:49:12 AM »
Hi,

because I'm unhappy with the tooling is started to write a little program to use TOSEC DAT files to move stuff around as I like it. A few amount  of entries don't have a MD5 value. The Logiqx dat file does not require to have a md5 entry. But i found it odd, because it is only missing on the following files. What is the policy here?

Code: [Select]
