Re: Work in progress

About upgrading a db (because a new rc version comes with a new db version), rc actually does it when opening the db. There is no specific action to do that and you have no choice but updating. I think that a messagebox is shown in case of a db upgrade, though i can't remember if it's just an infor...

Re: Work in progress

Syntax for commands are open. It will more or less be what you propose. That would be nice, i was wondering though what would happen if a user wants to perform multiple options on a DB. That way, my app would execute RC multiple times for the same database with different options, each time re-loadi...

Great news Eric.

Re: -> Participate in Romcenter version 4 design!

If yes, I can provide in the next version a command line interface. This is one point in my todo list. This behaviour is already used for the tests. Hey Eric, If you do provide that command line option, it would be nice if RC did not ask whether to upgrade the database from an older RC version (it ...

I'm not sure to understand the goal. Do you mean updating romcenter databases with datafiles new versions ? without opening all databases ? The goal is indeed to automate the database update process for entire systems. For instance, the TOSEC Amstrad CPC system consists of several dats, which means...

Re: -> Participate in Romcenter version 4 design!

Hey Eric. In this thread, there was an earlier discussion about how to handle entire systems (i.e a C64 set of roms - which is composed out of several different dats). Given that this is a one-man-show and your devoted time to RC is limited and also there is much work to be done, such a feature may ...

Re: How do I rename a ROM entry?

If I scan a folder with, say, .dll files it does list the dll's in it. But doesn't add the .iso files in the same directory. If any file types are allowed, why don't the .iso's show up? Maybe it doesn't like files over 800mb-2gb? RC is made to primarily handle compressed files (zip, 7z...). It can ...

You could add custom dat entries in the datafile then. After that, you could re-create an RC database including them.

If you eliminate that possibility, then there is a chance that the combination of datafile and romfiles you use has caused a hidden bug to appear, either in RC or in Wine. In any case, since in that case it would be a developer issue, only Eric could help.

Well, "Out Of Memory" should be clear enough. Maybe the computer actually does not have enough memory to support what you're trying to do.

Create a new DB from the datafile and add a new roms folder in which copy only the files you wish to check/fix. In any case, have a backup of your roms somewhere, just in case something goes wrong. RomCenter has protection though (when it deletes files, it can be configured to move them to the Recyc...
