RomCenter destroys sets with subfolders in archives

Post by Tester » Fri Mar 09, 2012 11:54 am

Some dat files from TOSEC contains archives with subfolders.
e.g. "Atari ST - Online Magazines (TOSEC-v2009-09-01)"
When you load such a dat file with RomCenter and Build your set new, RomCenter will destroy your set.

Because RomCenter removes the folder structure.

e.g. you have something like that :

test.zip
-> main.txt
-> rev1/sub.txt
-> rev2/sub.txt

after rebuild with RomCenter :

test.zip
-> main.txt
-> sub.txt

rev2/sub.txt will be lost

can you please fix this?

Hi

The current version does not support output to folders. You must edit your datafile and remove folders.

Afaik, no emulators support folders so it is useless with roms. For magazines, it could be used...

This problem exist not only for Online Magazines, it also exists for the TI-83 dats from TOSEC and the Noika N-Gage dat from no-Intro.

I will have a look at this problem, but it will not be part of the next release.
