sure. drop in a fixdat and i put it up here. no need for credits :).
i am registered already on the tracker. i assume some admin over there chnge my status ?

bumping down teh list is easy. all you need is UG as a tracker to end up with 25 missings :)

basically you need to have darkwater & redump. then get the linlhutz packs 1-20 (minus pack 09) and the mahjong 2&5 pack.
then grab the 100% ntsc set from same place and download all the files the darkwater set didnt give you (roughly35gb). then download the 99.9% euro pack and download what darkwater didnt give you (again ~35gb).then go through ug's list of staurn games and pick the 7-8 singe game realeases you still miss. then head over to emu paradise and get the other 5 or 6 :). bingo youre down to under 30 now xD.

emuparadise have more that you need especially those crappy iso/mp3 ones but even with a step by step guide with the same sourcefile i wasnt able to get a matching chd.

I've grabbed and gone through those already. The only ones I haven't checked is emuparadise but thats only becuase the download is horribly slow for me. If you can take a look at the dat and suggest where to find a few, I'll certainly have a go at getting the list lower.

Cheers again mini....

NQ,

Spot on mate.....I was there for years and loved every (Conspiracy theory) minute of it :-)
Postings there started dying off so it was decided to let it go, lost a few buds from that
but made up with quite a few here :-)

One nice feature they implemented was Mame game reviews, got some really nice postings
from some talented people there.

I'd say its a shame the scene changed but i believe it matured :-)

you were on a good run :). i pretty well remember most of the names from the point when i was stuck.

i pmed terra_cresta over at the tracker for uploader status. but no luck so far. but i have all your files ready and will put the torrent once im allowed to upload.
if you plan to upload the whole set to the tracker i can help you seed a bit (just not 24/7) for weeks :)

Cheers minireaper,

Appreciate the offer and help. Anything I can help you with in return just let me know.
As for up-loader status, TC has a tendency to set up-loader status and NOT telling you ;-)
Just check your pm's on the tracker (rather than here) now and then....

with what i have uploaded you can make a 100% easy since the torrent covers all hard to find ones aswell as the ones which you cant convert to a matching checksum by your own.

your welcome :)

well i cant have any obejections. once you have the full one up i help you seed it as good as i can.

my only concern was that some things are still uncertain (flac/no flac, change of checksums and stuff). so it might have been better to sort this out before the files go on the wide audience. to prevent having all who download this set from converting it to whatever is standard in mame/mess soon. but since haze ditched the set entirely it wont matter much now :). so the duplicates and stuff will stay inside until someone else picks up this list. but oh well we will see what the future will bring.

and also the more people have the files the lower is the chance they get lost. so overall a win xD

Minireaper,

When you say Haze has ditched the set entirely, do you mean he has abandoned doing anything with the set?
Going by his blog, it looked like he wanted to add some comparison option to chdman to try and differentiate between duplicate games. And what with the flac option going on I would have thought if anything he's trying to make progress with the set.

last thing i heard was he had to format the hd with the saturn set to use it in another pc. he even told that to eta in his blog. so i guess yes, haze won't update the set anymore (makes sense with 0 files on his hdd)

there were several shoutbox posts from developers like "bla saturn emulation is too bad, so no one will go after the softlist" or "since no "major" saturn emu supports chd format so no one will care about the softlist" :)

so in general you can say the saturn softlist wasn't born under the luckiest star :)

if the set will ever be taken up again, im afraid only the mess peeps can tell you. until then we can just sit and feel dumb xD. which i mentioned several posts earlier when i told you what my thoughts was.

Yup,

Just gone through the latest blog posts. What a shame its come to that. Well, I guess its down to folks like us to keep what Haze has done alive. Hopefully if the set "gets out there" the devs may look favorably upon the saturn list a bit more. You never know.

And after reading those posts, i can fully understand why you said what you did in the earlier posts here with your concerns. Like I said though, its down to the individual if they want to "waste" their bandwidth or not, we just offer it to them.

Like any platform, maturity needs to happen before we see results.
