In this year, I recompiled almost all MAME/MESS (0.34rc1 to 0.171) sources (includes u versions).
And re-generated these DATs.

[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login (about 420.5 MB)

== NOTE ==
I've applied minimum modification from original sources (makefile correction, smallest bug fix or TD enabling).

I have not MAME 0.99u4, 0.83u4(private version), 0.83u3(private version), 0.83u2(private version), 0.83u1(private version), 0.71u3(private version) sources.
Also I have not MESS 0.36b13, 0.36b9.1 sources.
So I cannot recompile them.

MAME 0.80u1, 0.80u2 source can generate from MAME0.80u1u2u3 diff file. It is concatenated diff file (u1 diff + u2 diff + u3 diff).
SL files are Software List dats using -listsoftware option.
TD files are generated from MAME/MESS with TESTDRIVER enabled binaries (not separated).

I found some little difference from EgoElf/ARMAX's Rollback dats.

Am I being a bit thick? In the computer section I don't see any evidence of the Sinclair ZX80 computer in the 1980 folder??

not sure what you mean. where exactly are you looking?

Update: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

added those dats provided by Ancient and jpantarotto
added some dats that i have grabbed from here and there
you will most likely have some unmatched dats, from the time of my absence, cant do much about that without the files, sry ;)

i have a feeling there is not much more to do with this project in the future. so i will leave it like it is and move on to other stuff.

so enjoy this last release for now, and thanks for your support. aight~  8)

Thanks for the update, be a real shame to stop the project when you've come so far.

thanks ;)

when i started this project i had one goal in mind, preserving and cataloging all dats ever released up until that point in time.
with the help of the romshepherd community we have achieved that goal together in a few months. as an extra, sorting all files and creating a naming convention on my own was fun :) (not mentioning how much time i spend comparing each files usability and necessity :P)
i dont think there is much more to add from the "past". which means from now on i would only work on maintaining updates, which is not my intention :)
but i have plans on working on a new project called UEC, for which i have a similar goal. i have to start slow on it, but eventually we will get there again :)

thanks again to everyone~
