General Discussion / Re: Have you ever heard...
« Last post by Cassiel on April 09, 2021, 05:20:35 PM »
Oh dear... Analogue had a new batch of stock in today (at 08:00PDT, not that I was watching the international clock rather than working or anything).

I "accidentally" bought an Nt Mini Noir, a SF Super Nt and a Black Super Nt (fighting all the way to get them through check out, everything sold out in about 13mins). My poor credit card must feel like a battered wife at this point (though I'll be the battered one if the real wife ever sees this months statement.... and I haven't even paid the import duty yet).

In other news, if anyone has a pre-order on one of their Pockets I think my card can take a little more punishment.... myself, maybe not if wifey gets wind of it.

It's Valentine's Day and because you're all very special to us, we've
worked heart and soul to put together a very special TOSEC release for
you.

duncantwain has continued his lifelong love affair with the Commodore
C64, bringing thousands more fixes, updates and changes in this release.
It looks like our Commodore powerhouse's eye may have been caught by a
couple of the C64's relatives, as this latest release also brings some
changes to the C128 and VIC-20. We've no doubt this is just a harmless
flirtation and that his devotion to the C64 remains unwavering. Our
Amiga contributors, crashdisk and mai, meanwhile, have continued their
labour of love in cataloguing every possible piece of software out there
for the system.

mictlantecuhtle, meanwhile, has returned to his first love, the Sega
Mega Drive and has added hundreds of new files as well as some tweaks
and changes to existing files. In classic "distracted boyfriend" style,
his eye has of course been caught by some other systems that need a bit
of love, so we've also got some minor additions to the long-neglected
Acorn Archimedes.

We've seen an old flame reignite in the past months with Cassiel's
return after several years away from the project. We've no doubt that
his new submissions for the Analogue Mega Sg, Nt Mini Noir and Super Nt
are but the first sparks of a rekindled love for all things emulation.

Last but by no means least, ladyeklipse, our ZX Spectrum superstar, has
returned with a truly staggering set of new dats for the system. It's
clear that her passion for the Spectrum knows no bounds and we hope all
you Speccy fans out there enjoy!

We have to give our thanks to Zebrasqual on the forums, who pointed us
in the direction of some more EACA Colour Genie software. That means
these dats now have a significant amount of the output of the British
publishers of software for this machine added as well. Many others have
contributed files, notes and corrections and these are really valuable
too, so please let us know on the forums if you're able to help improve
our database in any way.

It's time now to come out of our rooms filled with old computers and
spend some time with our real-life loved ones - until next time!

General Discussion / Re: Dedicated Handheld Devices
« Last post by mictlantecuhtle on January 25, 2021, 09:51:05 AM »

Yeah I'm interested in that. Are there any procedural guidelines that you all follow that I need be aware besides the obvious?

It should be pretty much straightforward - rename the files according to the TOSEC Naming Convention and put them in appropriate folders. It should hopefully be obvious from the way that current dats are named but the basic convention there is Manufacturer System - Type - [File Type] e.g. Apple II - Games - [DSK]. You don't need the last part if all files are of the same type, it's only used where we have multiple file formats represented for a specific system.

When it comes to creating the dats themselves, different people take different approaches. I tend to use the dir2dat tool in clrmamepro, whereas others I believe have custom scripts or tools to meet their own needs. We can cross that bridge when we come to it.

Other than that, basically keep in touch and let us know how it's going, ask any questions etc. If you want to send some WIP dats for us to take a look over and comment on, just send me a PM.

You mean like Game&Watch?
This would mean storing the actual roms?

Correct.

As far as I'm concerned these would all be in scope for the project, it's just a case of finding the time. Always happy to take submissions of dats if it's something you're interested in working on.

Yeah I'm interested in that. Are there any procedural guidelines that you all follow that I need be aware besides the obvious?

Sorry for my English.
TOSEC Database is unfriendly just all. People makes tools like  DATinate for edit flags or ROMSetMerger-0.22 for rebuild dat file.
It was just a suggestion to rename and regroup in future. Nothing more.
