Try downloading the "manual installation version". It has no setup, you just unzip the files and run romcenter. All data files are stored under the "romcenter" of your path (if you unzip it to D:\RC, all datafiles will be stored under D:\RC\romcenter).

RC358 installs something on C:\ but i decided to use my own path.
Dont let em install on harddrives i absolutly deny!
I installed, and after i recognized installing something on C:\, i decided to deinstall.
After that, every Point in the Program was grey, so it wasnt usable!!

Thanks for reading...

No-Intro's datomatic allows customizing .dats before downloading.
But redump.org doesn't! :-(

That'd be awesome!

Also count me in for 7z support! :-D

Thanks!


try my application, it will let you manipulate redump.org dat files as you wish

I'm just starting to use ROM manager but 7zip support will be great.
BTW, any dates of v4 release?

Re: Romcenter 3 wishlist

Post by RomCenter on Sat Aug 27, 2011 6:44 am

7zip will be supported in .net v4 version.
Dat filtering is an idea for a future version.

Performance

Post by maeztro on Sun May 15, 2011 8:54 am

Thank you for posting this. I just thought I was going nuts and a virus has invaded my pc. Fortunately still have 3.56 for reinstall. But still the best rom manager, in my uninformed world.

The latest version (3.57) seems to have some performance issues. Either use 3.56 or wait for Eric to take a look at it. Perhaps he can improve the speed in 3.58 and bring it back to what it was in 3.56.

On my Quad core PC, 3GB RAM, 1TB of HD, it can take 30mins or so to import Mame set

Changing split options, well I think I killed RomCenter after about a hour of hard disc hammering.

I really like RomCenter, I used 2.71 for ages, and although ClrMamePro was much quicker I liked the user interface. But comparing the performance of ClrMamePro to RomCenter 3 is like chalk and cheese.

I know this is probably down to the external database engine you use, but it does distract from an otherwise excellent product.


I just downloaded the new version, it's been months since I've updated my MAME set so I forget what version I was using before. But the updating does seem to take forever compared to what I remember. For example, when manually renaming a romset and refreshing the list with F5, it never used to take 10 to 15 minutes, maybe a minute or so. There are occasions where a romset needs renamed manually, for example I had "batridk", which needed to be renamed to "batriderk". But Romcenter was seeing it as "batrider", so I couldn't rename it within the program. I manually added the e, and refreshed, and it took about 15 minutes to refresh thew list. It also took about 2 hours to add the rom path BTW. Is there a reason it's taking so much longer? Is there a setting in the options that would speed this up?

I had this idea in mind, but never thought how to show it on gui. This is a good idea.

Re: Romcenter 3 wishlist

Posting this wish here, just to have it in mind. I guess it may come up in a future v4.x version...

The ability to go (via a file's the context menu) from DB note to ROM path node and vice versa.

Explaining: When rightclicking on a file in a rom path, a "Go to the respective database node" entry should exist. This entry should have the same children as the tree database node ("All games (main->clones)" , "All games (flat)", etc)

Respectively, rightclicking on a database game, a "Go to the rompath node" entry should exist, having as children all the rom paths in which the given rom exists.

Clicking on any of the child entries, the selection should be moved to the respective node (when on database it should move to the selected rom path and vice versa).

Hey mate,
add another vote for 7z support.

IMO your ROM manager is the best around - so much easier to use than a few of the others - however the lack of 7z support makes it, unfortunately, un-usable for what seems to be the most common compression method for distributing content.

Re: Romcenter 3 wishlist

Post by hal on Tue Feb 23, 2010 5:05 am

7z. This is absolutely necessary. I would love to use this software but everything I have is 7z. I know you can integrate 7z libs into your project. Unless it violates some license this should be top priority.

Post by Bahamut on Sun Feb 07, 2010 2:34 am

Please, i need 7Zip support, i thought it was already supported like a lot of tools! :(
Im very dissapointed this romcenter doesn't support 7Z!
If you don't implement this soon this is not any good -_-
And i bet it's very easy to implement... please don't be lazy =_=

7zip support. I'm not about to convert all my ROMs, but if this supported 7zip archives, it would be tremendously useful.

Not possible until Delphi offer a 64bits compiler, or I move to c#.net :P

Hi, first of all, great software, thanks alot.

I have two requests:

1. The the move or copy shell operations not automatically rename the files if they already exists, need some kind of option to you select if you want replace or no.

2. Natively x64 (64 bits) version.

Post by Drakul on Sun Oct 04, 2009 3:44 pm

Hi !!!
First it's a great software you got there, the one I use and prefer toward crlmamepro !!!
But nowadays, it becomes more or less vital for those roms handlers programs to manage 7zip files due to the incresing size of those roms directory!!!
For example, more than one hundred gigs for the NDS one so it's a good think to change for 7zip which as a better compression rate than zip.
Please, please can you add support for 7zip, please !!! I don't want to change for Crlmamepro which as support for it !!!
Thank you aniway for your great software !!! :clap: :clap: :clap:

When on a file in the database branch of the tree, pressing "fix" produces this message: "You can't repair files from this location. Go under 'roms files' node and select a physical file".

It would be very nice if instead of that message, a new window popped-up in which a multi-select listbox existed. In that listbox, all the paths this game exists in will appear, so the user can select one or more paths and "fix" them by pressing a "fix" button that will also exist in that form.
