turns out I only need 18 out of over 1,000,000 after scanning all my other collections. and I am using romvault. here's the fixdat of my missing

and I'm not saying that torrentzipping this collection is necessarily a good thing, just that the PD torrent readme file says it is when it is not. and torrentzip does not have to be used with RV, this can be changed in the settings.

I would like to but it is large. only have a free 15 GB limited mega account. I could make a TC torrent of just the diff-pack if you want. I ran your diff dat alongside the tdc 14 dat. I only need 16 still for your diff dat. with your 2 fixes I assume I now need 16 for tdc 14 dat. the TDC 14 (diff) is at 47.1 GB.  the main collection is at 100 GB. BTW I did use torrentzipping in my RV. not sure if I should have now...

Personally I would love to get the whole collection on TC. Would you mind sharing, when you got it complete?

not sure if I will now. will be many complaining about how I mangled, messed up or destroyed the collection by torrentzipping it. if its 10,000,000 to 1 chance of any 1 rom incorrect, there's a little more than a 10 percent chance that at least 1 rom is incorrect from torrentzipping.

Yes you can't torrentzip these DOS sets otherwise they mess things up and some game won't work.

Instead of using a ROM manager, try using DOSCenter (what the dat was designed for) with it's dat to scan your collection.
Uncheck 'Use Ignore List'

Let me know how complete you are then ;)

is it that the actual game install's, or the way the files are used when running them that makes some not work. IE, are date stamp's needed as information other than from the dats point of view...

I'm running the TDC 14 (diff dat) through a cmpro64 new scan as we speak, all check options checked. not in the mood to learn new dat tool at the moment. it is slow but at 10% now with nothing in the scan log yet :D

ok, pointless check duh, will run the original/normal TDC 14 dat/post torrentzip collection through cmpro64 shortly

only way you could possibly scan that properly in RV would be to first..do a dir2dat of the complete set.as is.. then
<clrmamepro forcepacking="zip" /> in header.. which would zip your zips..allowing for torrentzipping,only problem with that is you would potentially have either 1 large zip for whole collection or depending on how you set the dir2dat setting multiple zips for the years with all the zips inside..not good for sharing but,does work for collecting the set...plus anytime you wish to add to that set u must first in to sort folder rezip the zips/otherwise RV would ruin the collection..as RV user its been what i have had to do for alot of older scene sets and previous versions of this collection,does make pain in but if goto update set as u must first unzip it.then seed or whatever,but it is possible..

It is true that once torrentzipped there is no going back. cmpro64 finds none after. does this actually affect the roms in action (not just because RV has a higher probability of verifying the wrong file) or just the way different rom manager/tools deal with them. and I understand what you say slipnut, such as in the way scumm 1.8 dat is zip within zip and over 90 gb. takes forever to rebuild even if only adding a tiny file.
