Databases: switching from RomCenter 3 to 4

Post by Bobby » Sun Oct 14, 2018 8:41 am

First: Thank you for this great tool! :)

I used RomCenter 3.7.1 so far, but it seems that I have to switch to RomCenter 4 for some new dat files.

In RomCenter 4, can I use and load my databases created in RomCenter 3.7.1, or do I have to expect problems if I do that? Would it be more safely to create all databases new (what would be a lot of work)?

Hi

Unfortunatly, you can't migrate an old 3.7 database. Version 4 db has been redesigned and is no more compatible with old one.
But rc4 offers some improved feature to help you create new db.
You can drop a dat file or an exe to open the creation dialog.
You can drag & drop several rom folders at once from explorer to import them.

I hope you will enjoy this new version. The final release will be out soon, but the current one is stable.
Report bugs or ideas in the issue tracker (see icons in the application ribbon).
