New Tosec Update!

A new verion of Tosec - TIM (V0.6.10) and a huge dat update released today! Get it while it's hot!

"After alot of work from all the team, a new release is online. It is pretty important that you install this update before letting TIM look for any online database updates, as the database structure has changed slightly.

Basically, the lists of countries, languages, etc have been added into the TIM.db. If you run the online update without this version installed, you will get error messages at the end of the import when it is updating the 'listbox' table. TIM will automatically create the 'listbox' table when you first run the new version, so this is why it's important that you are running the latest version of TIM."

Yes please

This is the way for me, I much prefer ClrMAMEPro and am very used to it (since I use it for everything MAME / Neo-Geo / Raine etc. related)...

TIM 0.6.11 Released. A quick bug fix release...

Still got some issues with the renamer tool and posted a bug report. Waiting for V0.6.12...
Anyway, this is just the rommanger tool. The new dats are fine!

As stated on the TOSEC page if you are running an older version than 0.6.10 then you cant do an update without getting 'a zillion database errors'.

So go update the main app 1st.

Meh, gave up keeping up with TOSEC years ago
All sets are rar`ed up (cant tell how I hate having 10.000 files flying around) and somewhee on DVDs, so I dont think that will change to soon.

Their commitment is outstanding though.

I always use Clear Mame Pro for that. It is way easier to understand than TIM (which I don't understand ).

Romcenter is the simplest and more visually understandable. but clrmame is the one to use if you are in need of rebuilds (copy or move and correct and/or rezip the objects, in this case adfs, in another directory, with the option of move or delete also the remaining uncorrected files)

Hey Methanoid,

Hmmm, haven't used RC in ages and ages.

ClrMAMEPro is much better although maybe a little bit harder to use. You can find a good tutorial here: http://www.mameworld.net/easyemu/clrmameguide.htm

If you get stuck with this I can help you

I just bought a new HDD so I decided to upgrade to the latest TIM (0.6.12) and re-scan my collection late last night (around midnight).. it was still going strong at only 43% completed at 8am this morning and I've got a huge lot of missing files.

i don't want to offend the developers, but to me TIM is a crap. emphasis on - to me -
probably you have let it move or delete unneeded files or something like this: the new DATs are pretty good, but if you had many non tosec files they have been maybe considered unneeded. check your backup directory in TIM.

it could be that your latest loaded DAT is faulty or ridicously large or points to some faulty location: try clean up the DATs directory. if it's not that it's a RC problem: maybe you have installed a release candidate that is missing files because it required to be installed on top of the older stable version or it needed a clean install. it's a while i don't check the site so i'm not sure
