OK... OK... I got it.  You renamed the files you attached above based on the page you took them from???
The page link also doesn't have the underscores in it's text... but I just downloaded the 2 files directly from the site and sure enough they DO have the underscores in them, well in the .zip file only that is ... the actual files inside the .zip don't.

Anyway... fucking underscores playing with the search and driving me crazy! LOLz

Thanks again bud!!!

Thanks,
Mords

no the second attachements are the original archives from emulab. untouched. not recompressed or anything.
the files inside have no underscores besides the one infront of the XML tag: MESS - ROMs (v0.145u3_XML).dat

i dont rename any datfiles for my collection. only the set/folder names if i see fit. for example i sort them by date, but the datfiles stay untouched and unrenamed. original as they were :)

glad i could help. peace

Zandro the m.v.p. in the house :) i knew i could count on you. thanks man.
isnt it crazy that all your hard work with those smw hacks gets compressed to only 817kb :)
i will add them with the satisfaction of having Zandro dats 100% complete within the next update ;)
thank you very much~

Actually, it compresses to 30GB.  Some day I'll have a static database website for this collection up and running.

@Mordor there are AntoPISA MAME from EXE dats that have been errorfixed by him after the initial releases.
you are listing the unfixed (intitial releases). so if you consider getting the fixed ones you should look for these MAME DATs releases from here: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

0.9
0.10
0.16
0.27
0.35rc1
0.78u6
0.132u1
0.146u3
0.149

i have compared the contents with the first release and he fixed some missing tags, notclosed tags, wrong symbols etc etc.

i have datted these next to the first releases to my superdat and tagged the setnames as [f] for fixed:

0.9 [f]
0.10 [f]

peace~

@Connie aight no big deal. thanks for letting me know ;)
