I much prefer the new layout with the unsorted and discarded in the main folders.

Can the next dat remove non-obsolete Encrypted DS games from the obsolete No-Intro DS dat, and instead mark them as Encrypted? They're one not obsolete, and two I think just for organization Encrypted roms should be marked (as well as Byte Swapped roms for n64). Obviously for a lot of roms that would mean looking at them all individually, but for ones you can find dats for I think it should be done.

byteswapped is obsolete, as it is reconstructable by converting the main (little endian) files
encrypted is obsolete in my opinion, as it does not add anything new to the main decrypted ones, which are the default dats on DOM aswell.

the main goal of aio is to keep the collections as small, organized and usable as possible. keeping duplicates of any kind as few as possible.
if you think you need something multiple times in different formats, then you are free to use those other dats instead

Can they be labelled? I have no problem keeping them under obsolete as I agree they are easily converted and provide no real use, but if [Enc] or something could be added to the file name it would be very helpful for organization and identification of what a rom is and isn't.

Hey attractivo,

thanks a million for the AiO dats. I'd always hoped someone would do a project like this.
I really appreciate the massive amount of work that has been put into this project.

I have a question about the use of the pipe character "|" in the folder names.

Do you have a way outside RomVault to create/rename these folders?

Although NTFS supports this, windows doesn't (see [You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login)
Trying to create a folder with "|" from explorer/cmd/powershell causes an error, if I do it via bash it gets automatically renamed to another character.
RomVault gets around this by directly using the kernel32.dll and not the fileIO api that cmd/powershell use.

Would it be possible in the future to use a different character for folder names?
This would then allow batch/powershell scripts to also work with this folder structure.

Cheers

you have mistaken those two characters:

|    "vertical bar or pipe"
│   "box drawings light vertical" <-- this is the one i use in AiO

in windows you can generate the character with "ALT + 179" (press the ALT key and while holding it type 1 7 9 on your numpad)
[You are not allowed to view links] Register or Login

the character is supported by all tools i use (sabretools, romvault, advancerenamer, totalcommander, masterseeker etc..)

workaround for batchfile:
1. open a new document in notepad++ and change the encoding to "Western European\OEM-US"
2. add your lines/commands now
3. save the file and run it


Ahh that explains a lot, then forget what I said.
Thanks
