@nitro322 You also have to add the pregap since sarami's tool removes it. I always keep both the bins for mounting and flacs for easy consumption. I suggest to do the same.

Since I keep my stuff uncompressed I figured a workaround that maybe will help you too. I manually rename the folders and I drop any subtitles and disc titles. I also add the database entry number to find it if I need to. So you chould make it like this:

Zoku Hatsukoi Monogatari - Shuugaku Ryokou (Japan) (Disc 4) (63632) or
Zoku Hatsukoi Monogatari (Japan) (Disc 4) (63632)

When I scan with CMP I don't fix sets, untick it. That works for me.

For example "Tomb Raider III - The Lost Artifact (Europe)" uses the USA spelling and not artefact. This is for the easier search rule? But then if you search for center and centre you will get different results. Also honor and honour. And they might be more.

Maybe keep the authentic name but use the US spelling as an alternative for the search engine in european games?


Baldur's Gate - The Original Saga (World) (Disc 4) (Soundtrack - Music by Michael Hoenig) ([PC] Baldur's Gate - The Original Saga Bundle)

Does this name needs to big this huge? 137 characters. I get sql error in romcenter, clrmamepro wants to delete all the files, sometimes windows doesn't copy them if they exceed 255 characters. It is not convenient. I don't see this name in this cd scan https://www.mobygames.com/game/baldurs- … rId,17599/

ok thanks. And what am I supposed to do with this?
can i fix anything?

I don't see anything relevant to the wiki.

1. What are the SBI files used for? They are not in the dat. Can I use them to fix ISOs? Are they part of the copy protection?

2. The securom sectors, can I use them to fix ISOs? They are only 10 columns instead of 16 so how do I do that?

For months now the wiki is filled with shit spam pages and bots yet no one is deleting or banning. Although there are no links to find the actual pages, you can only see them from feeds. But it's a waste of space and i assume resources. Maybe a clean up should be done.

happy hollidays to you too  smile

use EAC for audio


lol this topic starts to remind me that dude Eidolon.

Anyway Nologic, the methods described here can be pain in the ass sometimes but they exist for a reason. You either accept them or not. If something changes (which sometimes does) it will be a progress, doing 2048 is going backwards. And there are cases of cds like PCE, pc protections etc that require raw data and/or subs too. For consinstecy we treat all cds the same.


plz search  smile

dude you will save me if you can tell me what to use to split the pc dat into cd and dvd. splitting the iso and bin entries into two dats

Yeah it happened to me when I was dumping red alert soundtrack. Luckily I know my plex can overread and the LG can't (very well). So I redumped last track alone many times on the plex. you have to figure out which of your drives are best for this. do some more eac testing.

Go to options -> image files -> iso/bin/tao lower tab -> untick default iso to bin extension. Tat way you know if an image is 2352 or 2048 in a glance and it saves you the trouble of renaming. Its nitpicking maybe but it helps.

I see mds are needed and mdf are isos anyway. anyone can mount them whats the problem? At least consider the file date thing, because...

Anyone has already tested http://sourceforge.net/projects/t7z/files/?

... its slow as hell (compressing, decompressing and renaming), uses solid archiving by default and for images is worthless, it was designed for merged rom archiving which makes sense. and it completely removes the file date, call that a nitpicking but I hate that.
