Strictly speaking, the DATs are headerless. That is, the hash that's in there is ONLY the game data. That being said, CMP has the ability to skip copier headers and only get the game data hashes. So games with headers can still be matched to the DAT. The other option is having the headerless files that match the DAT without having to use the skipper.

How do I convert the NES ROMs from "headered" to "headerless"?

And to convert the Nintendo 64 ROMs from "Big Endian" to "Byte Swapped"?

Converting I will not need to download the same FullSets twice.

s4nQy29A, Would it be possible to get a GHWT Wii DLC bundle?

I can offer you a crudely coded utility to decrypt them; if you compress them I can re-encrypt them on my end. Would save me a hell of a lot of time.

(I've always meant to keep working on the tool to actually distribute it someday, but I keep not having time to work on it...)

I am new to the whole DAT thing, and I need to update my ROM sets. Where can I get the best info on how DAT's work, and how to keep my sets up to date?

Please people, stop posting "random" fix requests in my thread.
There are dedicated threads for nearly all systems. Just take a little bit of time for searching and you'll find them. ;)
If you come across dead links there, then let us know. If you see dead/non-working links I have posted, then please leave a short message here or just PM me. I'll gladly do a reupload. ;)


@XC-3730C

Now you have to be brave: Open a datfile with a standard text editor and prepare for the worst! :o
No, really, this question has been asked several times over the past weeks.
Just play with the search box a few times and wonders will happen! 8)
Even though I was cynical now, both pieces of advice were meant serious. ;)


@nanonago

Could you please elaborate? I don't really understand the part about decrypting/encrypting... What am I supposed to do now? :p

I feel like I'm misunderstanding something; what's the difference between "non-merged, non-split" and just "non-merged" like s4nQy29A wrote?

@pignouf

you probably want to go to datomatic.no-intro.org and grab the latest dat from there. The set you have downloaded should cover 99% and you can find the others in various threads here.

otherwise here are 2 dats from that era, though neither is exactly that date (2016-07-04 and 2016-07-22)

I did this a couple days ago and i don't know why but when i did a 7z rebuild i was missing 1500+ sets. After reading your post, i've re-checked (minus 7z conversion) and got only 107 miss... Dunno what's happened. I'm more familiar with mame stuff, No-Intro is rather new for me.
Anyway, problem solved :) Thx !

@The_Cameraman

"merged":
e. g. "Mario (USA).nds" + "Mario (Europe).nds" + "Mario (Japan).nds" => "Mario.zip"

"non-merged":
e. g. "Mario (USA).nds" => "Mario (USA).zip"; "Mario (Europe).nds" => "Mario (Europe).zip" etc.

"split archive":
e. g. "big_archive.part1.rar" + "big_archive.part2.rar" + "big_archive.part3.rar" + etc. => all parts are needed for extraction

"non-split archive":
Each archive can be extracted independently.



@all / who cares

I've been quite busy with real life for some weeks now (some may have noticed that my "online activity level" has drastically dropped in April/May).
So expect some time until you get a response to your PM and don't be mad if you don't get a response at all if I think you can handle the challenge yourself. :p
I think I will have some more time for RS again in two or three weeks but who knows? -_-
I really like this site but if we are honest: It's just something like a hobby and I fear I didn't always chose the "correct" priorities in the past... ;(
Besides, I'm convinced there are many helpful people in this community, so I don't think I am missed too much. :D

Hi, This is my first post and I would like to give many kudos for all the great work everyone has done and continue to do for the community :)

I wish I had found this site many weeks ago and finding posts like this one as it could have saved me countless hours of downloads ... lol

Anyhow, there appears to be dead links or issues with a few DSI DLC (see attached fixdat). Also, the DSI DLC single ROMS list appears to stop at 0324 for some reason as I'm sure it was a full list the first time I looked?
If anyone could help I would very much be appreciated.

TIA

@zambobway

Don't know if the DSI DLC list was "completer" some day but I surely should update those html lists generally. ;)
