Supermodel v0.3a (r726) [DEP & XML]

48 Games 'supported'.
I think there are only name changes.
I tested a few and they seem to work ok.

Let me know. :)

Hi Connie,

Thanks for dat update supermodel (r726).
It's ok now  ;D

For my information, how did you do to extract the dat for supermodel and what is the DEP format (XML, i know) ?
Thanks again ;)

You could write a macro to clean up/convert the supplied 'Games.xml' or what I did was get the ROM set names of the 48 listed games and make a dat file via MAME using

Code:
Only registered users can see contents. Please click here to Register or Login. ...from the model3.cpp

DEP, as already discussed in the forums, is Deprecated. The 'original' format for dat files which clrmamepro would create and can use before xml was prefered.
Compare the two dats in a text editor and you can see that DEP is much easier to read/edit.

PinMAME (SAM Build) v3.1 r4504 (May 12 2018) [DEP]

Several new additions.
ROM naming will probably get fixed when an official PinMAME is out. For now, it is based on the new VPinMAME.dll

Lots of name changes and samples now fixed to reflect PinMAME.exe and VPinMAME.dll
Some coloured dumps removed, 1? dump added.

Now online for you anal switch collectors ;)
Nintendo - Nintendo Switch (0117) (20180523) [DEP]
Nintendo - Nintendo Switch (0117) (20180523) [XML]

The dat format is as follows:
All entries are numbered to reflect scene release order.
Archive (name field) and xci dump (rom field) file naming is based on No-Intro.
Description (description field) is the scene folder name with the nfo/split RAR name in brackets.
I've used the sourcefile field to store the game card serial.
The year field holds all the various game release dates. So a World release may have at least 4, even eShop and card release dates can be different.
Also used is the manufacturer field which uses the format "Developer / Publisher / Publisher, etc".
Lastly, as well as the usual CRC32/md5/sha1, the date field can be found at the end of the 'rom field' line. This is the date/time stamp of the actual xci file, hence when it was created (and strictly speaking, it's release order to the scene).

117 releases are datted (116 xci, 1 nsp)
Naming and languages are taken from Nintendo sites where possible. NFO's and various game sites provided additional info.

I've been over the dat with a few searches to fix bugs, but of course, I'm only human and need your help with verifing.
I also welcome any suggestions :)

Thanks to the dumpers, sharers, carers and uploaders!

EDIT:
I forgot to add, I've added Japanese/Korean titles in brackets after the English/Romanji naming. [ ]
The dat is in UTF8 format, so if you see unusual characters, ? ? ? ? ? ?, etc., then you need to add ASIAN language support to your OS/text editor.

Nintendo - Nintendo Switch (0121) (20180524) [DEP & XML]

I fixed a few bugs, fixed some (World) to (Europe,USA) regions and added a missing Japanese title.
It seemed only fair to add 4 new dumps ;)

Nintendo - Nintendo DS (Numbered Patches) (20180527) [DEP & XML]
3 more created.

Nintendo - Nintendo Switch (0122) (20180527) [DEP & XML]
Fixed another error and added another dump.
Let me know if any of you wish to continue using my dat, or if you prefer the one from DoM now that a version is added.
Main differences are some additional language names, the date/time flag and some language differences which will have to be verified later - I based mine on what the Nintendo site lists.

PinMAME (SAM Build) v3.1 r4508 (20180527) [DEP]
Another new dump added.

Have just checked and all the dats are contained in the links in Connie's signature, but can see what you mean re the new dats  as they don't seem to have appeared.
