@exodust
could you please provide a link to where you get the archive from. it will help to justify its properness.

but these are good changes ;)

@exodust: okey that counts as a user made archive then. its not really a proper release file/archive. please share only downloadlinks and not selfmade archives for now. thanks :)

ok , so i liked the previous incarnation of the DAT , i had around 80% of it ... now i have 0% .

Someone give me a solution ... maybe i'm thick, drunk or just too old. Ive followed the instructions in the 1st page but i cant get any files to rebuild ?

going to try a few other things .. but there must be an easier way ?

or is it simply that i cant use the files i already had and need to re download everything again ?

I have the same problem, half is the mistake of not keeping downloaded archives untouched, the other half is that the manager is trying to read inside the archives instead of the archive itself.  If you still have the originals, use the console command: ren *.zip *.zip_ ...and re-scan.

thanks Zandro , im in the preocess of re  downloading a handfull and trying , shame if thats the case as i put alot of hours into this so far .

** well , looks like we have to re download most of the files if you did not keep the original archives , which im guessing most of us did not . Got some matching after re downloading

@Zandro: definitely proper, thanks for the links  :)

@zxyo: sorry buddy, i know about spending hours. but its for the best. keeping the archives untouched will be more accurate for preservation. that way its guaranteed that the releases will be stored exactly how they were released. i could have went on with the previous format and always feel responsible if some files were altered through my datting process. like i have explained with changing filenames while extracting archives. as a compensation i assist filling the new format with all the links to the right places. i hope this will make up for the lost hours

The links are good, even better is that RV lacking date support is no longer a concern.

@darky, thanks for the warning, theoldcomputer should be aware of the license restrictions.  However, this project is to dat releases for preservation, it is not attempting to distribute them.  Linking to the packages is perhaps the bigger offense.

@darky: just the right ones, thanks

@Zandro:  i dont think that it was a warning. i think he just mentions what was missing from the original releases. at least thats how i get it :)

Indeed, It wasn't a warning. I don't even know what it's for. Just wanted to help.

Did the potato not feel hot?  Must be safe to eat then.

Basically if the emulator is freeware and open source, and it doesn't end up in a bought/sold situation, I suppose supplying the DLL (with license) is acceptable.  I just remember it having to be removed from something in the past.
