For some of the datfiles i was just using my existing CMPro ones and everything seemed to be fine. The issue i'm running into is datfiles from no-intro that need supplementary header files (a separate XML download for CMPro). From reading the forums here i found out you have to click "standard dat" and then "Romcenter Format" on the no-intro datfile download page to get the proper format file. No worries, easy enough. However, when i try to import that DAT into RC, i get the following error:
Code: Select all
Creating new database Atari - 7800 (20140326-040142_RC) from datafile Atari - 7800 (20140326-040142_RC).dat Copy Database template Loading datafile Atari - 7800 (20140326-040142_RC).dat Dat in Mame 0.70 format Error: Error reading datafile : The 'rom' start tag on line 14 position 4 does not match the end tag of 'game'. Line 15, position 4. (line 15, position 4) Error: The 'rom' start tag on line 14 position 4 does not match the end tag of 'game'. Line 15, position 4. Duration: 00:00:05
Is this a RC bug or a no-intro bug? I should note that as an experiment i opened the same DAT in the latest stable RC 3.X and it opened fine. This appears to be the case for every RC formatted file i download from no-intro. Is there some trick i'm missing?
Apologies if this is a "known solution", but i poked around on the forum and wasn't able to find an answer. Thanks ahead of time!
