Ultimate EMU Collection (UEC)
« on: March 07, 2017 - 01:49:58 »
Welcome to UEC!
An Initiative to find, save, preserve, sort and catalogue all Emulators for Windows and DOS, from oldest to newest Release.
Excluding: "source-, svn-, dev-, nightly-builds". In some Cases, they still can be included.
Each Release is checked for Version, Date and Properness. The Original Archive/File is then added to the Collection.


How to Build this Collection
be aware that building archives "as files" with romvault does require you to put the archives in another zip archive before you hit the "Scan ROMs" button. (for romvault 2.6.2 users, same goes for 7zip).
alternatively you can make use of this tip from Zandro: "Tip for scanning archives: You can change the extension instead of zipping to hide the fact it is one, changing RomVault's interaction with it to allow building."

the links provided with each dat-release are the ones that i have used to build the sets. i will provide links each time i have added new files.
whenever anyone finds a better source than mine then please feel free to share a link. (if the alternative/better link hosts the original (or "better") release archives, i will change them with the ones already datted, and move the unneeded to UEC [OBS]) also if you find more versions than me, please link me to them. i will then add the versions. i may also have overlooked something on the links i have provided myself. again please let me know.
one more clarification. i will tag some links with a "+hidden". this means there are downloads that are not seen on the site but still can be accessed by typing the version manually into your browser. for example the arculator homepage provides no links for version 0.5. but it has a working link for version 0.4 like this one:

b-em.bbcmicro.com/arculator/arcul04.zip

now if you manually change the link to

b-em.bbcmicro.com/arculator/arcul05.zip <- then you are able to download version 0.5, even though the link does not visually exist. so whenever i tag a link with +hidden, you know what to do. if you step on more hidden versions that i have missed, let me know.

the links start from [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

@darksabre76: because what would a rom be without an emu :P

@gremlin1968: thanks. actually there is one old dat for emulators: "peckhamspring Emulators (v1.00u1) (20101013)(XML)", and "Mordor" covers MAME related stuff (which i wont add to UEC for now). but other than that, you are right, its about time :)

@Zandro: thanks, new dat attached to first post. or click ---> [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

Maybe just the external hashes of the archives should be done? I see a lot of original release in RAR and even LHA format...

@Yori Yoshizuki, thanks, that helps to fill some old releases :)

@darksabre76, i know what you mean buddy, but it helps to dat the content of the archives, rather than the archives themselves. only exception are releases that come as executable/setup files (like the dolphin releases). those obviously wont be extracted beforehand. all other "portable" releases are contentwise datted. makes no sense to dat the external hashes of the archives. there would be tons of archives with different hashes for the same release without any variation of the content.

for new dat check first post

I'm attempting to mirror patpend.net/ftp right now, so others shouldn't need to...

It may be better use the main site, the mirror is slightly out of date.  [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login
