If you have nothing from the collection, the torrent is a good starting point.
Also a good starting point is if you have TOSEC and eXo's SCUMVMM collection (any version will be better than nothing).


Then you can follow the request thread

The TC Grubby torrent is the 20171001 version. just 2 1/2 months old now. Oops 3 1/2 months

I am using a crazy huge dat structure in romvault. based on attractivos newest UDC.

since these Grubys newest dats are not yet included I do a side thing (in case of UDC updates. I would hate to go searching though 1,000s of folders for my added stuff)

these are datroot folder structures I use for Gruby...

DATRoot > DATs 4 [unsorted] > Emulator > Multi > ScummVM > Gruby > (General) - Computer > Gruby [ ]

(Variations) > 20160903- AddonPack -[XML].zip
20170601 (folder containing dats)
20140424.zip
20140425.zip
20150921.zip
20151002.zip
etc...

DATRoot > DATs 4 [unsorted](CW) > Emulator > Multi > ScummVM > Gruby > (General) - Computer > Gruby [ ]

20171001 (folder containing dats)
20171208.zip
20180101.zip


lets say I want to update from 20171001 to 20171208. I would just zip 20171001 and unzip 20171208, move 20171001's ROMRoot to the tosort folder. update dats, scan fix. whats left behind in the tosort folder is the rollback between the 2 of them, assuming previous version was all green to start with. whats in the corresponding romroot folder is everything but new needs. dats within a zip archive in the datroot, are not recognized as dats by romvault, very handy IMO. as long as the torrent is based upon torrentzip, corresponding dats are known, easy to get, or better yet included, its easy to maximize the preload of the download.

Hi!

I have a question about some roms.

There are some ROMs that include OGG files, but I do not find them online. Those games I have the original ISO with the audio tracks.

What program can I use to convert them to OGG and recognize that with Gruby 's DAT? I have tried some programs like the Format Factory or CDex and it does not recognize me.

New UNSTABLE ScummVM Engine, SUPERNOVA with 2 new games:  :)
- Mission Supernova 1
- Mission Supernova 2

The engine for the Mission Supernova, a freeware German adventure game made by Steffen Dingel, has been merged with the main git tree.
The engine is relatively small, about 9.5k lines of code for the engine itself and the game data.
It is the result of the last year GSoC work, as well as work of the mentors and effort of many translators who translated the original game from German to English.

You may get the game from the author's website: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

Thanks people.


Is there a reason your zip contents do not have timestamps Aviloria?
Makes it hard to sync/update files.

The AdventurePack development is paused because I have some trouble with my heart, my doctor recommended more relaxation(?) (rest in bed). I hope I can continue my work within a few weeks.
