clrmamepro DATs

Are their dats for killergorilla whd packs?

In the faqs it mentions that their are on his website, but it says "coming soon"

if their aren't, can someone explain how I could make one?

I've tried using dir2dat in clrmame but it comes up with errors.

I'm sure Damien will come to the rescue later, but for now can you post the error you get when you try to make the DAT? Oh and I think the DATs are still on KGs 'ToDo' list, so he would appreciate your effort

I'll whack together some dats soon.

You can't use dir2dat unless you specify that each zip is an individual game/rom (which I do).

Thanks Killergorilla, looking forward to the dats!

If your wondering why I even need the dat, I am using your packs in emucontrolcenter (ecc).

I am adding metadata to each game (info from HOL) and importing images for each game (mainly from gamebase packs and some from HOL).

Because ecc is crc32 based, when another user uses my imagepacks and rom database, not all their games match with mine (because their crc is different from mine).

So I was thinking if their was a dat, everyone could match up with my list of games.

Is my logic correct about this?

I have no idea how exactly ecc works, do the games need to be unzipped or are they left zipped?

If they are left zipped then it should be fine.
