Thanks for all you guys have uploaded.

Is there any way you or decodermtri can add a MAME 0.182 ROMs (T7Z-Merged) set as well?
This change at PD is leaving tons of people scratching their heads and they're refusing to update because they've removed the smallest portable option. Myself and other people have received tons of PMs...

I'm tempted to buy News access just to upload it, but if someone else would do that then that would be cool :)

B2K24 is asking for T7Z-Merged (Torrent 7zip), not Torrent-zipped Merged, since PD now only uses zip and no more 7zip. Your upload is torrent zip ;)

Thanks ToeKnee, but I'm not going to worry about usenet anymore. Best option probably is to find an efficient way to just put it on archive and point those that ask to that.
Just trying to think of the most efficient way to get it posted over there.

Can I use the "PD's merged tzip dat" to build the t7z merged set?

No. Their MAME DATs are worthless because the entire MAME set is split into 3 or 4 different things to accommodate some kind of preliminary tools they're interested in or messing around with. It defeats the purpose of a 100% complete merged set all-in-one post.

Importing the official binary into ClrMAME is the better option.

Thanks B2K24.
I'll try it. Now I'm going to compile MAME arcade only binary, then import it. And then start rebuilding process.  ::)

Just remember to set the appropriate Hash collision and 7Z options so you can match other T7Z-Merged sets that are out there if you're interested in doing that. For 7z.exe use 9.28 Alpha

Done!
I just have a small problem: the clrmame's stats.
33 sets are missing, no roms miss

Missing
·Sets                 33/32543
·ROMs                 0/259566
·CHDs                 -/908
·Samples              -/16314
·Bytes                0/213gb

What I've done:
- builded mamearcade from source code
- import mamearcade in clrmame
- set clrmame as B2K24 said
- rebuild from against03's 0.182 merged roms

Is there something I'm missing?

I don't deal with arcade only builds or custom compiled builds/DATs. I deal with only the official released builds posted at mamedev.org
I'd recommend importing official baseline mame into clrmame and you can still use Arcade compile to play if you need it just to be sure you don't get errors or missing files when launching any games.

Does it show names if these 33 sets in statistics window or can you create a fixdat?

This is yet another reason why the PD DATs are bad that I didn't mention in my last post here. They don't mirror exactly 100% of what the latest released MAME asks for in terms of files and how they're named, so as of right now you'll have 72 thousand users that can't properly match what they post because they've chosen to go in the direction of unofficial tools/DATs. Many people will also just expect the Merged torrent itself to have everything (because it should) then get presented later will missing files messages because devices and other required files are split out of what's supposed to be a complete set. Having 20 different MAME torrents that rotate out every month is not only confusing for casuals, but really non-optimal.

I think the arcade-only build I've compiled is not exactly a custom build: I used the official 0.182 source and the latest build tools, both on mamedev.org. The command I used was "make SUBTARGET=arcade -j7" instead of "make -j7".

Tomorrow I'll try to import the original (=already compiled)  mamedev.org bin file, then start a new scan.

Ps: sorry for my english B2K24  :)

@baldo,

Please read this: [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

Although B2K24 despises the PD .dat files, one benefit of them is that PD removes the CHDs listings from the .dat so that the ROMs-only torrent doesn't suffer from the issue you are experiencing.

This thread is dangerously off-topic at this point, the last few posts have little to do with Usenet Uploads.   If you need to discuss this further, perhaps you ought to make a new thread in a more appropriate forum.

The link to emulab was really helpful for me. Thank you!
Sorry for the OT. I have no more questions.

@kdin, it's not a benefit. It's actually inconsequential.
