Connie's DATs
« on: November 15, 2012 - 02:49:36 »
I noticed someone had made a dats folder on the FTP, so I thought I'd join in.

You'll find all? my created dats in the sub folder 'Connie' under  '_Current DATs'.

There are a number that I use just for personal use/checking, but feel free to try them out and pass on your feedback (and request probable fills ;) )

Hi Apache!
I join your reasons and you've all my solidariety. I've was the starter of the TOSEC AMIGA APPLICATIONS DAT and during the new management my credits was deleted (my name was SEA7). When I asked about it on TOSEC forum they said... it's not important". I've chosen to give up renaming right now. I've spent a lot of time and money thinkin' to be helpful and to be part of a community. I was wrong. All my work was forgotten and my name / myself wasn't important.

Hi SEA7. I remember you. The real problem of the TEAM TOSEC was Grendel. Did a lot of injustices. I have nothing against the current members of the TEAM TOSEC also because  many of them don't know anything about what happened in the past. The result is a defeat for all. Because i see that the current project goes very slowly and with extreme confusion. They create only a multitude of low-quality dats committing seemed the usual errors of split files multiple tapes or disks into individual files.

This Is useful....latest dat collections on teh FTP

For ages, I have wanted to sort out my collections, by name of Datfile Creator....here Is the opportunity.

Yoshis are easy.....

Connies...not too bad either...

But I certainly hope, other creators jump on this and also upload their dats....

@ Apache, and SEA7(I remember your name)

As I have told others, MOSTLY THANKLESS BUSINESS THIS......so do It for the love of Roms, and the classic old days...

Trouble Is, some do It for "Prestige Points"................and think Its gonna give them some sort of power, to be a part of some Elite Group...

I do It for the LOVE.......and the fact that one day, Im gonna have the BEST MANCAVE In Australia...Im a BIG KID, see!

To all datters....I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME, PATIENCE, sometimes MONEY, AND ALL OF YOUR WORK!

To all Uploaders.....I APPRECIATE YOUR TIME AND BANDWIDTH!

To all Collectors.....I APPRECIATE YOUR HARD DRIVE SPACE.....Especially when one of mine fails!

Now.......lets get over that crap, and get on with the job..

Its not about EGO, afaiac.

Btw......this was meant to be a PEP TALK......and get all you datters, datting, and uploading to the FTP, so I can download them...and update my sets!

Internet Is VERY BORING, with nothing to do...

And, I dont like seeing you fellas all sad and nostalgic.....lol

Cheers

I would like Main dats, with an associated Patch dat, and I would like ClrMame Pro, Integrated with Xdelta, and all available emulators, for on the fly patching and testing, and playing, and and and and.......

Lol

But yeah Apache........Why not that also....

Single zip, Same game, multiple roms with differing extensions...and a single datfile and single directory, Instead of possibly half a dozen.

Would make things simpler....

Aint gonna happen, unless someone does It themselves, and It becomes popular...........things usually only get harder and more complicated, In "RomWorld"

If It ever happens, maybe Ill even consider t7z, because by then, surely they will have ironed all that out as well...

Cheers

Next release around Christmas. Thank you for your past work ;-)
Best regard,

You have already done a similar thing I don't realized.

From your dat Commodore - 64 (merged 20121029000000)

$54 Zipper [PRG][TOSEC].zip
$54 Zipper [T64][TOSEC].zip


1x1 Proportional Charset Converter [D64][TOSEC].zip
1x1 Proportional Charset Converter [LNX][TOSEC].zip
1x1 Proportional Charset Converter [PRG][TOSEC].zip

If you can merge the names into:
$54 Zipper.zip
1x1 Proportional Charset Converter.zip

It would be great

Ok, the next merged DATs will not have [D64,...] but [TOSEC] will not be removed

Nice to see some clarifications by Crashdisk.

Also, things around TOSEC are slower due to real life taking most of our time. Still, everyone knows that the emu fever has generally passed years ago and we don't have the amount of people involved has before, creating a lot of dats. Calling the current work confusing or low quality is a bit unfair, for instance mai and Crashdisk have been doing and amazing work fixing and properly naming lots and lots of dats. The truth is that TNC is complex and in parts incoherent, in addition most of the sets added in the last decade were poorly renamed, create massive dats (with lots of garbage too). We are dealing with that now and trying to fix it, that's why most of the updates mainly renames. It would be way easier to just add tons of unrenamed / nongood sets to our dats and have major updates, such as what happened before. Fortunately that's now what i call a high quality work so we are doing the opposite.

Sorry about the rant, just wanted to point out that quantity and quality are not the same. If you have any suggestions just let us know, even around here (me, Cassiel, Crashdisk, Aral, and others are registered).
