Re: Mysql

Romcenter uses an internal sql database (firebird 2). A lot of processes are handled through stored proc, which are specific to fb. Using external database requires to rewrite proc into the new db, or rewrite these processes in the main program, getting rid of stored proc. I'm not sure a lot of user...

Re: Hyperspin XML Files

Hello. I'm not sure how many different datafile formats exist out there but an interesting idea would be for RC to expose some kind of plugin-API. That way, community could create plugin-DLLs to add support for New database creation / update for new datafile formats (provided that the original data...

Re: SubFolders [RC 4.11 Beta]

Hi

Romcenter currently read compressed archives one 2 levels deep. This is mainly because all emulators work that way.
So, unzip your multiples folders and add them to romcenter. You can drag them all and drop them in rc using drag and drop.

But you have only unzipped roms, right ? When rom are zipped, the crc (required to identify the rom) is available in the zip he...

Re: Romcenter 3 wishlist

Hi thanks for your mail.
Rc4 is indeed in c#, rc3 was in delphi.

rc is closed source for now, and I'm not ready to open source it. I have to decide what the future of rc will be before taking a decision.
But that's something I will take into account.

Hi

Edit the datafile and add

Code: Select all

<romcenter plugin="fds.dll"/>

Hi 1 - You can safely delete or rename the german language file. Rc will fall back to English. 2 - Rezip will re-compress already compressed files. You can't actually zip unzipped folders. This will be added in a future version. Btw, I recommend using rc4 now. It is stable and rc3 is no more up to d...
