Title: Why I don't like RomVault
Post by: Kodoichi on August 12, 2013, 03:41:05 PM
Is RomVault part of the NSA or what? Please fix these things, GordonJ.

Hi Koidoichi
Clean install then try again, I personally have none of the issues you listed since probably last year.
Best program for rom collecting/sorting.
Well done GordonJ

Second bullet point isn''t true. You can right-click the "RomVault" node in tree view, then select "Set ROM DIR". In fact, every single ROM folder can be set to a different path that way. It may take a couple of clicks if you have lots of DATs loaded, but you will get the menu eventually ;)

RomVault comes as a Zip file without installation.

You can right-click the "RomVault" node in tree view, then select "Set ROM DIR".
Why aren''t we told this on the website or missing manual?

Alright, found out that the crash can be avoided by opening the EXE with admin rights on Windows 7. Now all I need is 7Zip support and I'm starting to like this tool.

I have no idea if it supports 7z (or plans to) but from my small experience RomVault is awesome to easily manage an huge amount of dats like we have here :)

ATM as plan exists. From the romvault homepage:

"May 23th, 2013, ROMVault 2.1
... The 2 main things I am focusing on are 7Z and CHD support, and the good news is both are coming along well, and both work to a degree. ..."

 :)

And agree, by far the best manager.

You know, I'm all for having a manual, but if there is none, one should use their general knowledge of computers to explore.  Context Menus have been around since mid 1980s.  It should be an automatic instinct to try it out as it's part of standard UI design.

Anyway, I know this is a very old post ... not expecting a reply

Here is one :P
I partly agree with Kodoichi here. Although any good application (or any other thing in 2016) should have decent usability and user experience, making its usage obvious and self explanatory, a bit of documentation, even in the form of a small web page of howto / quick tutorial just to let a less computer savvy user quickly scan and rebuild his sets.
I haven't used both RomVault and cmp lately but that would just be a couple of images each to: copy or import dats to the right place / organization; configure system(s) folder(s) [source, destination, output, whatever], and action [scan, rebuild, or others].

So, an instruction manual is what you want, how about an instruction video, and has been around for 7 years.

Very first line on www.romvault.com says:

For a very quick 'How to use RomVault' Scroll down to the very bottom. (Read April 12,2010 post.) or watch This YouTube Video
