Here are the instructions you should follow:


Preliminary:
  • Download the latest version of ClrMAMEPro 32bit (zip) from here.
  • Extract it to your hard drive e.g. "C:\CLRMAMEPRO".
  • Download the file "Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip" from the "User\DamienD\DATS" directory on Magix's FTP server and extract the DAT file to ClrMAMEPro's datfiles directory e.g. "C:\CLRMAMEPRO\datfiles".
  • Create a directory called "___ORIGINAL" on your hard drive i.e. "C:\___ORIGINAL" and then copy all your .ADF files into this.
  • Create a directory called "___FOUND" on your hard drive i.e. "C:\___FOUND".

Running ClrMAMEPro:
  • Start ClrMAMEPro and click "OK" at the welcome screen.
  • Double-click on the "Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM)" displayed in the right hand window and then click "Default".
  • Click the "Settings" button, click "Add...", then point to the directory where your files are stored i.e. "C:\___ORIGINAL", click "OK" and then click the "X" to close the "Settings" window.
  • Click the "Rebuild" button, click the "..." button under "Source", point to the directory where your files are stored i.e. "C:\___ORIGINAL" and then click "OK".
  • Click the "..." button under "Destination", point to the directory where you want your rebuilt files to go i.e. "C:\___FOUND" and then click "OK".
  • Tick "Remove Matched Sourcefiles" and then "Rebuild...".
  • Once totally finished the "Statistics" window will appear, click "OK" then "X" twice to exit ClrMAMEPro.

All renamed / identified files will be sitting in the "C:\___FOUND" directory.
Any rare / unrecognised files will be sitting in the "C:\___ORIGINAL" directory.

Greetings,
Indeed Damien has done a great job of combining the files, I still don't like Clrmamepro, so I will still develop my own software.

The moment of truth revails that I do indeed still have much that's not in TOSEC and that is just from the single archive that's been done and doesn't include all of the additional images I will have available soon from various other collections. I'll collate a list for perusal and we'll go from there, should be done by Friday.

Big thanks to all that have helped in these matters,

Paul

Greetings,
Here's the list, an X donates that TOSEC couldn't find anything, although with some of the titles, I know they will exist, or the original archive that I have is corrupt, or different cracker / coder / loader / intro, if someone wants to sort through, be my guest. If someone wants something, again, just ask.

@DamienD

That's a job for me to do this weekend then - I'll run my ADF CDs through this to find out what I've got/not got.

This will make my life a lot easier.

Thanks

Greetings,
Everything is uploaded, I no longer have the time to sift through, someone else will have to do that.

Many thanks to Magix, I have used plenty of your server, but in a few weeks, if that's ok, I will remove things as I have time, all the non working entries, or serious repeats. I urgently have to find work, if anyone needs an Electronics Tech, please email me, zero242@internode.on.net

ftp://eab.whdownload.com/User/Loedown/

ftp://am1ga:JayM1n3r@eab.whdownload.com/User/Loedown/ <--- This link seems to work, sorry about the other.

Go mad people, documents are there, one set is the original disk I found, the other set is the remaining disks I found after they had been put through Clrmamepro.

Enjoy,

Paul

Doesnt this just do the same as BatchRun? I was kinda hoping it would be the solution to my problem and put the files in the correct folders. It chucks ALL files into one folder, leaving me with 100,000 odd files perfectly named but in no kinda order!!

Hey Methanoid,

I've read your other thread... Definitely something that I think would be useful / beneficial so I've done all the hard work

Basically, here's what I had to do:
  • Use UltraEdit to amend each DAT file with the required line rebuildto "<datname>.dat" into the correct location for each entry.
  • Combined all the modified DAT files into one.
You can download the new "Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined With Directories - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip" from the "User\DamienD\DATS" directory on Magix's FTP server. Instructions for use are the same as in post #2

Nice work PandMonium

I've tested my new DAT file with multiple files from various DATs and it works perfectly... I'm sure yours does too

LOL, slight correction to my post above in regards to the location

You can get both DAT files I've created from the "new" EAB File Server. They are loacted in the "User\DamienD\DATS" directory

Here are direct links:

... Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip
... Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined With Directories - [ADF] (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip

Ah, my heroes... Seriously though guys, mucho thanks. That's why I posted here and not on some anonymous CLRMP forum...

Pity I have done 90% of the files but this will make the job so much easier on the rest and checking those odd files. This is how the DATS should be IMHO....

Anyone for asking Grendel or Idoru

Hey jrom,

Only the .ADF based DATS were included as listed in post #1 ...

Over the weekend I'll create the following:

... Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip
... Commodore Amiga - Latest Public DATS Combined With Directories (TOSEC-v2007-03-14_CM).zip

These will include all DATS excluding CD based ones
