update 2016-06-28:

Rollback DATs - MESS SL (v.0.174)(@tractivo_20160628)
Rollback DATs - TOSEC Main,ISO,PIX (v.2016-01-03)(@tractivo_20160628)


MESS SL: i have added support for original setnames and description-setnames.
all in the mess sl rollback archive. pick the one you like better
for example
O-SetNames:
<machine name="MESS v0.141\a800\alphashd">
D-SetNames:
<machine name="MESS v0.141\a800\Alpha Shield">

TOSEC Main & ISO:
i had to move three dats from the 2006-06-12 release from main to iso:
Sega Dreamcast - Demos - [CDI] (TOSEC-v2007-03-07_CM).dat
SNK Neo-Geo CD - Unofficial - Demos (TOSEC-v2006-02-26_CM).dat
SNK Neo-Geo CD - Unofficial - Games (TOSEC-v2006-02-26_CM).dat

if you already have build to my previous dats, just grab the new and replace the old ones. the files should still be inplace.
as my first release, you can find normal and superdats in my archives. use the one that fits your needs.
peace~

Your rollback for Maybe-Intro classifies Hacks as a removed subsection of the overall package, but I consider it an independent set, separate from English Translations.  None of it should have been 'trashed' really, even if the author abandoned them.

you have a good point Zandro,
those hacks dats do belong to maybe-intro but as you stated they never saw a second release (that i know of), so they cant be considered as rollbacks.

i have a solution for that. i will still include the hacks dats (untouched) in the maybeintro rollback archive, but seperate them from the real t-en rollbacks. they cant be found in the latest official release from Powerpuff's site, so at least they will not be lost or "trashed" completely :)

attached is the updated maybeintro archive 2016-06-30

i am working on no-intro rollbacks. so far i have used all dats i had. they are sorted by year and chronologically deduped from starting with each the newest dat of each system. this means only the files from the last release they were listed in before rejection are kept in the rollback.
also keep in mind that if you use the normaldats instead of the superdat with romvault, dats with the same internal name will not be loaded. so i suggest using the superdat for no-intro rollback.

as we all know that no-intro's goal is to keep/list only the best possible dumps of each file, they regularly discard bad dumps. these are most likely found in the rollback here.

the newest dats i compare the older releases of nointro have following standarts:
not numbered
including everything
physical support: all
decrypted (might add encrypted if needed)

and a final word about this release. if there is interest in the kind of rollback dats i am generating, i would appreciate if you can share some dats that you think i havent included in my releases. to determine if i could use any dats from your collection, i have included some additional information in the archive.

now enjoy, peace~

I'd rather not think hard about what dats you don't need, and instead give you all that did not match the dats dat.  [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

nice one Zandro. thats exactly what my idea behind that dat-dat was. just throw any (in this case) no-intro dat against my dat-dat, and only share the ones that are not detected by the dat-dat. thanks for participating :)

edit: if anyone wants to help and is not sure what i might need or not need, just pack everything together and share. i will sort things out on my side :)

I grabbed the dats posted at PD and filtered them down to 234 unmatched. [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login
