Ignore FDS/NES headers w/no-intro database?

Post by HunterZ0 » Sun Aug 20, 2017 8:02 am

I'm trying to verify some Famicom Disk System ROMs using the latest no-intro dataset, and it doesn't recognize most of them - apparently due to the presence of headers.

I downloaded No-Intro_FDS.xml and put it in a bunch of places, but it doesn't seem to be recognized by Romcenter 4.0.0.beta11.

Am I missing something, or does RC4.x not have the ability to deal with FDS/NES headers?

Hi

Edit the datafile and add

Code: Select all

<romcenter plugin="fds.dll"/> 
in the xml header.

Next version will automatically detect which plugin to use.

Thanks, I was able to figure that out on my own by looking at the parent-child flavor of no-intro DAT files. Not sure why they include romcenter metadata in those but not the standard ones.

Hi, I saw this thread, and I was trying to setup the same thing.

How exactly did you get it to work?
Adding the entry to the XML file outside the detector wrap or inside?
And where exactly do you place the XML file and tell Romcenter to recognize it?

Thanks in advance.

Here's an example:

Code: Select all

<?xml version="1.0"?>
<!DOCTYPE datafile PUBLIC "-//Logiqx//DTD ROM Management Datafile//EN" "http://www.logiqx.com/Dats/datafile.dtd">
<datafile>
	<header>
		<name>Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System</name>
		<description>Nintendo - Nintendo Entertainment System</description>
		<version>20170719-133541</version>

		<homepage>No-Intro</homepage>
		<url>http://www.no-intro.org</url>
		<clrmamepro header="No-Intro_NES.xml"/>
		<romcenter plugin="nes.dll"/>
	</header>
I think I got Romcenter to recognize it by importing it as a new database.

Heya!!

Sorry for a late reply, got busy and never got back around to checking here.
Greatly appreciate your answer, I did that and it worked. (Although it crashed the first time I did it with RC4b11, the second attempt, it went through and recognized it). :)
