ClrMame datfile

Recommended Posts

Since scans is updated sometimes, i think would be useful having a ClrMame datfile

so everyone can check her/his collection.

File usually used to check your MAME Rom sets against the current MAME version etc to ensure they are up to date. Not sure what use it has re mags though.

I love MAME.

Thing is, this isn't an emulation site. I think you might have posted this in the wrong forum, eadmaster. All we do here is scan magazines.

I'm not too worried about it. I don't know how that would be implemented on a site like this. And as long as people keep an eye on the Most Recent Files box, as well as the monthly updates I put out, it should be fairly easy for users to keep on top of things :)

You just need to hash the files with a tool like DatUtil,

then host the resulting datfile on the site.

Everytime a new mag is added/updated you update the datfile is updated too.

Datfiles are useful for keeping a consistent naming scheme too.

I see what you're getting at now. It would possibly be useful, but can you use that to keep track of files hosted on MegaUpload?

No, datfiles aren't link containers.

They can be used to check downloaded files integrity btw.
