Very simply, I'm requesting a link to download all the various dat infos in one zip, arranged in a sensible hierarchy:
(Small selected sample)

Fujitsu FM Towns series\cues
Fujitsu FM Towns series\dat\
IBM PC compatible\cues\
IBM PC compatible\dat\
IBM PC compatible\sbi\
IBM PC compatible\led\

Alternatively, possibly the better option, is include a single folder for each disc type with all relevant files in that folder and just negate the need for subfolders per file type. This is probably the preferred option for both the user and for you as a coder.

Fujitsu FM Towns series\    ;contains all cue,dat
IBM PC compatible\    ;contains all cue,dat,sbi,led


Bump. smile

I don't think its gonna happen. It was available back in the day, but it produces to much calculation and you should only download what you need.

PX-760A (+30), PX-W4824TA (+98), GSA-H42L (+667), GDR-8164B (+102), SH-D162D (+6), SOHD-167T (+12)

What about a No-Intro style XML that can be used in something like clrmamepro that we can check for dat file versions?


Sure. But can it be used by other datfile managers other than clrmamepro?

PX-760A (+30), PX-W4824TA (+98), GSA-H42L (+667), GDR-8164B (+102), SH-D162D (+6), SOHD-167T (+12)

Romulus has similar functionality. Romvault doesn't have any online dat checking feature AFAIK.

Either way a simple XML file would be easy for someone to build a little checker tool if they didn't use clrmamepro or romulus.

Based on your reply, I guess the zips are made on the fly, per request? If that's the case, why not have the site generate a given zip (and the "master" zip) on each submission to the db? That way you only have to generate one zip and then serve on request.
