This feels like a more worthy successor of the WoD DATs than anything. Feel free to pilfer from the WoD Redux sources to get a better set going. I salute you  :)

@tractivo: edited in the preavious post!  ;D
I've loaded it in RV... but I was wondering... While WoD merged DATs used to avoid dupes crossing multiple DATs files... Would The Ultimate DATs Collection do the same (diffdats)?? or as it collects all DATs releases should unavoidably contains dupes?

TIA for the explanation!  :)

Hey bud... I'm always on the look for missing files for the Archives collection... thanks so much!!!

But... I need to ask, where did you get these from?
You see... I assumed I just hastily missed these files when I was creating the MESS portion of the MAME Archives a few months back as I added a ton of files then... but I just scanned over all those original files that I got from ARMAX directly and these were not there either.

Thanks,
Mordor

Post by: Mordor on July 18, 2016 - 21:17:49
Cool... thanks.

Interesting though... they truly appear to be his files but they also don't follow ARMAX's way of labeling either.

BY that I mean:

This would be his style... with the underscores
MESS_-_Rollback_ROMs_(v0.145u3)

but the files above don't have any underscores at all.... which likely fails my search.

Thanks again though... will look more into this and likely include them into the next MAME Archives update!  ;D

Thanks,
Mordor

OK... OK... I got it.  You renamed the files you attached above based on the page you took them from???
The page link also doesn't have the underscores in it's text... but I just downloaded the 2 files directly from the site and sure enough they DO have the underscores in them, well in the .zip file only that is ... the actual files inside the .zip don't.

Anyway... fucking underscores playing with the search and driving me crazy! LOLz

Thanks again bud!!!

Thanks,
Mords

I am stunned by how fast I fall behind in this set.  First, a few things to point out. Later, after the dust settles, I need to post a fixdat~

typo: DatFiles\Redump\Cutsom, Modified

There was a range of time where ROMvault had not yet adopted the <machine> tags which had replaced the conventional <game> tags. During, I might have altered some dats by replacing the tags to make them compatible with RV.  If you noticed some strange alts, this could explain a few.

Release Files\TOSEC\Documents: sizedist.txt and torrentsplit.txt were my personal files, not from TOSEC. They weren't released except for the dat pack I provided, and should be moved to Trash.

Did you pick up Kludge's DatRoot?  Hundreds of dats are still swimming around in there.

dir2dat can obviously be d2d... I'm not familiar with the comp/uncomp attributes.  The common ones are listed in logiqx's datafile.dtd (http://www.logiqx.com/Dats/datafile.dtd). fm/fnd/fp n-s-f/o-r-i/z-u... beyond that I wouldn't care to delineate them other than that the dats are 'special'.

Part of my reasoning about alts was that if it is knowingly inconsequential to delete one and keep the other, then you can.  I didn't fully realize Kludge's were all of that type until just now that I see his fileshare elsewhere is all folders instead of archives.

^ "good behavior"? Are your standards really that black-and-white?
This site lacks a distinctive rule to put the users into its place, so I don't know what you're expecting out of someone's behavior at all. Not that I care anyway since twisting their words to make them their enemy isn't exactly good behavior either.

Sorry for jumping in to the discussion as if from nowhere, so I try my best to avoid any problems if necessary.
Title: Re: The Ultimate DATs Collection
Post by: Zandro on August 02, 2016 - 05:18:38
What I will apologise for is my poor choice of words to describe the behavior, and that I am unable to reshape my character to fit your ideals.  It's basically correct that you hadn't fought me; I wrote that in the first hour of my day. I am justified in defending a respected member when their input, though trite, is not merely dismissed, but ridiculed to such an extent. I already had the sense you were being unfairly testy with me in your PM despite the progress I believed we were having, so I'm not so keen on the idea that I should be looking at my character for faults.  How I react is what brought me to where I am.  It's not always a good thing to mess around with.

Like others, my participation in this forum and with its users is without monetary reimbursement (it's actually damaging), and only happens because of my selfish interest in collecting and preservation. Call it egotistical if you must, but nobody was being harmed for it.  When someone makes a derisive comment such as: "thanks anyway. though i think i got ignored the first message and thats very unpolite", when I was physically away for a few days, I had to decide whether you were telling that to yourself or directly to me.  Either way, it was an unwelcome comment that tipped our relationship toward apprehensiveness.

After your complaint about lack of participation from others and your hanging of Connie's relatively passive comment on a pike, I found even less chance of keeping things stable unless someone spoke up.  And now this new post showing you still need my admission of guilt over the way I've handled your misunderstanding and its destabilization of the situation?  My pride instructs me to say "count me out", but that fails to recognize the larger order, and that too many projects die this way.

I think your suggestion that I should apologise first before I can provide further input is irrational as hell, as shown above.  By participating, I thought I presented that I was willing to move on, 'put the past behind us' as they say, and help you do useful things again.  Each person has specific needs though, and to feel safe with me you clearly depend on an apology, and whether you think I am being genuine about it should also be important.  In these situations, the cultural, spiritual, and psychological definitions of an apology cross swords in my head and eventually cohere as either a farce for selfish gain or a resolution to maintain a peaceful environment.  The latter is where I want to be.

You have my gratitude and thanks for your amazing works, but I must also thank gryla for his interest in the part I wasn't, since I fear that was necessary to keep everything going.  If thanklessness and lack of participation are conditions you're not ready to endure as a producer in this hobby, expect times where you might feel ill.

Hey guys, why don't we keep any hard feelings to PMs and bars, eh?  :D

This is a thread full of DAT preservation, and it takes us weirdos to even want to keep them around. So all the collecting weirdos stay together  :D

Hi ppl,
I went completely crazy and downloaded your datfile for datfiles (yo! we heard you like datfiles, etc.etc.)
Now I went through all the fixfiles in this 3d, and also scoured my collection of present and old HDs, and went down to about 15.000 missing sets.
Is there a torrent for this collection, or should I ask for your help with my missing's fixdat?

I also realized that on my HD there are a number of old datfiles not listed in your collection. They are basically into a few cathegories:
1) MAME datfile from exe in deprecated format (made by me for internal use)
2) HBMAME datfile from exe in deprecated format
3) MisfitMAME datfile from exe in deprecated format
4) FBALPHA datfile from exe in XML format
5) MAME datfile from ARMAX in XML format (from 0.1 to 0.28)
6) EMMA and VARIOUS dating back to 2013 in deprecated format.
Are you interested in getting them?

You mean to say that you actually want UDC to have DATs that people can use? That's LUNACY!  :P  I think that's a great way to do it, having "usable" DATs in one folder and originals that are copies or unusable in another. Maybe the [Del] DAT should be called "UDC (Rollbacks)"  :P

If I remember correctly
DATs 2\Emulator\Multi\ScummVM\ScummVM\ScummVM\ScummVM (v0.99.2)
is an old version of what later became (the amazing) Gruby's AdventurePack
it was called (ScummVM GIT v0.99.2 or something similiar)
if so, it probably should be moved to DATs 2\Emulator\Multi\ScummVM\Gruby's\ScummVM GIT v0.99.2

can someone please verify?

@tractivo,

Cleaning up my PC so I threw this together real quick, here are some DATs currently residing on my active drives, you likely may have some (or most) of these files already, so sort through them beforehand or just download the whole thing and sort through them afterwards.

I would say that 99% of them are my own, 0.5% were generated from some emulator binary and the other 0.5% are from other authors.

They are in a folder with your name on it --- > https://mega.nz/#F!f98FmJpI!ZZ9iUtOXLKGP_W_Z1uHPBw
I'll delete this folder in a week or 2 so take your time if you are currently busy with other things.

Thanks,
Mords

In this year, I recompiled almost all MAME/MESS (0.34rc1 to 0.171) sources (includes u versions).
And re-generated these DATs.

https://mega.nz/#!scE3DAxS!epk_a3F3SCP3pnrL7KV2BAlMNr0SIQARmSboLcT0HfU (https://mega.nz/#!scE3DAxS!epk_a3F3SCP3pnrL7KV2BAlMNr0SIQARmSboLcT0HfU) (about 420.5 MB)

== NOTE ==
I've applied minimum modification from original sources (makefile correction, smallest bug fix or TD enabling).

I have not MAME 0.99u4, 0.83u4(private version), 0.83u3(private version), 0.83u2(private version), 0.83u1(private version), 0.71u3(private version) sources.
Also I have not MESS 0.36b13, 0.36b9.1 sources.
So I cannot recompile them.

MAME 0.80u1, 0.80u2 source can generate from MAME0.80u1u2u3 diff file. It is concatenated diff file (u1 diff + u2 diff + u3 diff).
SL files are Software List dats using -listsoftware option.
TD files are generated from MAME/MESS with TESTDRIVER enabled binaries (not separated).

I found some little difference from EgoElf/ARMAX's Rollback dats.

Post by: an0rmal on May 01, 2017 - 19:42:17
Thanks for helping. What i've done is try to decompress, starting from file 05... i renamed the previous 1..4 to .rar_, forcing the decompression.

Well, it work, files missing from _04 and beginning of 05_ but at least i could used 05..62, thanks original uploader and fixers.

DATs Updated!

Look out for the new DAT in the Collection :)

Hollo.

I've noticed that some sets have name like:
DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.150-abc1600
but, in fact, contains many more files (not only abc1600). I think it is little bit misleading. Wouldn't be beter to rename such a sets to eg.: DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.150?
On the other hands, there are some sets thts contains only one file:
DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.185-cgenie_cart
DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.185-cgenie_cass
DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.185-nascom_flop
I think, they all could be in one, "DATs-MESS SL-_Old-0.185".
What do you think about such a re-organization?

Please could anyone post last DAT from @tractivo?
Thanks guys

Any helping hand with "dat" file?  :D :D

Also if possible project "cleaned" dats will me happy!

Edit: OP finally sent me the files. I've mirrored it in multiup.

C64User: thanks for missings!, i am all green now

I've seen you are missing some dats, i generated my missing files with romvault.

Do you know a easy way to get the files you are missing from my collection? Must i duplicate the whole collection and use your dats as source? or are they any option to do this?

thanks again!
Title: Re: Ultimate DATs Collection (UDC)
Post by: cannonwillow on October 30, 2017 - 21:40:41
an0rmal, all you need to do is stick the fixdat in the datroot (in the same folder as "Ultimate DATs Collection (20170226)[@tractivo].dat") open romvault, update dats, scan, find, fix, then the missing files found will be replicated in the romroot under the fixdats folder name. this will not remove any files from your original romvault, just replicates the files neeeded.
Title: Re: Ultimate DATs Collection (UDC)
Post by: an0rmal on October 31, 2017 - 08:20:45

any files in your ToSort folder will be removed, and not placed in your own collection, if only needed in the fixdat. (meaning files not needed for your own dat(s))

what sucks is I spent a lot of time searching/downloading UEC stuff when you first started that project. I never did get around to running it through RV and organize it though. somewhere down the line I accidentally deleted most of it. thats what happens with unorganized stuff scattered around quite often :-[


quick question, I see that there are a lot of archives listed as roms within the dats pertaining to UEC. I know that in order for RV to recognize as roms that the extension must be changed, if .7z or .zip, or compressed into a .7z or .zip archive. the question is are the original archives left as found or are they torrentzipped (or 7z equivalent) as for as the dat is concerned ?

what I tend to do after downloading/gathering a bunch of random roms is the following. stick them all in a folder (I call L1). then do searches in L1. *.zip, *.7z, *.rar, *.tar, .cab, .lha, .lzh, .gz, .bz2, .iso, etc (lots of other archival maybes), ending with a *. search (viewed by type) just to double check. then move into folders such as zip1, 7z1, rar1, etc. the .zip's and .7z's I compress into a single zip each and also decompress them, after which I delete the original zips and 7zs. rar's and any other archives I only decompress (no deleting here). all decompressed stuff gets moved into (L2 folder). process is then repeated search wise. some must be checked for multiparts, mainly rar's. To get even more sometimes an iso needs to be mounted with daemon or .exe installed on junk computer (to avoid very bad install clutter).gotten to L7 folder before doing this. all this to maximize possible files that might be found for romvault deduped dats +some. I considered also converting all .zip into torrentzips and then compressing these into a single file also. another words ending with zip1.zip and zipT1.zip along with all the decompressed folders. not going to do this now as this is already a stupidly long prescan process ::)

Hi Attractivo,
first of all I'm speechless at the amount of work and dedication that you are putting into this collection. THANK YOU!
Second, I'm just starting now to rebuild everything with your latest datfile and I notice that in the DAT folder there are 7 instances of my EMMA datfile and more that 50 instances of my VARIOUS datfile.
But, according to your description, only "everything that is unique, hot or still pending" should be there.
In case of my datfiles, only the latests EMMA, VARIOUS and IMPOSSIBLE_TO_FIND are needed, all the older version should belong to the OBS folder.
I know that there are a few very old versions of my datfiles with 1 or 2 roms in them that where not present in subsequent releases, but those are just errors, typos or something that crept into the datfile unwillingly.
IMHO they should be moved to OBS, keeping into DAT folder only (as of today):
EMMA 20171227
VARIOUS 20171227
IMPOSSIBLE 20151230

Keep up the good work!

great work attractivo, very impressive.

been slowly getting EMU and to a lesser extent Tool. I thought I would have had more of the new section (Patch) than I did. Of the 6000+ roms from the Patch section of old deduped UDC I had, only some matched (mostly non archives). any hints as to good sources for Patch. Dats that contain archives for roms are very source dependent.

did you use python-3.6.4, one .warc at a time placed in the python36 folder, using from administrator command prompt "python warc-extractor.py -dump content". then stick whats in data folder in the tosort folder. make sure warc-extractor.py, imageboard-scraper.py and json-extractor.py is in the python36 folder (not subfolder of). also need to compress all .7z and .zip files from the data folder into a single .zip before scanning with romvault...

Hi attractivo, just wanted to say a very big thank you for that huge dats collection. I crashed my NAS couple of months ago, loosing everything on it, including old "rare" systems (and their dats), and been struggling (and often unable) to find them. Thanks to you, i got back every lost dat, and much much more.

Big thanks also of course to everyone helping on the fixes, especially cannonwillow !!! Well, now i got a huge work to fill the collections, but at least i know what i'm looking for !

Edit:

I am missing some dats ( arrived too late for most fixes in this thread  :'( )
Most important for me are in the UDC.7z file.
The others are in the fixDat_DAT.7z.

Any help welcome.

Thanks

Hi,

Would you know if that kind of bug also affects the attached dat file (taken from UDC) ?
There is a weird behaviour with that part : romvault always sees need to fix files there (although fixed previously), and keeps aborting (modified archive). Noticed the behaviour with music files (that i try to collect), i do not know for other sections (don't collect).

Or if any of you knows about other dat file(s) for music files, please PM (I would not like to hijack the thread), unless of course those are dats from UDC (i'm still missing many)

Thanks a lot

also "forcezipping no". doesn't rescan each time but 2nd fix rips apart the first fix. if you see blue on second scan, find it (problem rom/s) in your romvault, save it somewhere, compress it or change extension (normally zip or 7z) and before fixing. then stick back in tosort, modify the dat in your datroot (delete problem line), update dats, rescan, fix, golden

with rom vault, I always like to rescan with empty tosort folder after one that was full of fixes.
Title: Re: Ultimate Dats
Post by: Thx738 on February 17, 2018 - 10:58:22
Hi,

Many thanks for the information.
Yes, issues are the "blue" roms on second scan, that then are fixed, then blue again ... endlessly. Actually fixed a few dats using attractivo trick, i'll look deeper once i can have a good dats base that match my needs.
I have been "collecting" since early 90s, moving data from HDD to bigger HDD, then NAS... and got a big crash last year where i lost all dat files, some of them very old, and ended with many corrupted rom files, and many files (some 8 TB) unknown although i believe many shall not be corrupted, so probably unknown cause i could not recover yet the relevant dats.
That's why UDC is an awsome project (Thanks again attractivo for big help for music dats... :D), and Romvault is awsome, as i can tune dats then "mass scan" (using one setup to "scrap" through parts of the unknown files to a buffer directory and another (using the buffer dir as sort dir) to maintain proper new sets on a new setup that i'vebeen rebuilding those last months...
So was kinda weird to see some of the proper new sets being fixed at each scan.

So thanks again, with both explanations i would be able to "tune" the dats i intend to use for the new build.

P.S.
I am still looking for missing dats (above post), so any help (or pm with sources, ....) most welcome

whenever you come across the issue that romvault asks for rescan each time, look inside the header of the dat. if it has these two options:
Code:

then you have found the culprit. assuming that you are just trying to complete the dat, possible workarounds are to remove one or both of that lines from the header. this will break the intended dir structure, but at least romvault wont ask for rescan again and again.

i am not much into music related collections. but you can look here:

unbelievably brand new dats are still including <clrmamepro forcepacking="unzip" />, that I must still delete with text editor :o, as long as the .zip isn't 20 gb big, no prob. why not make it smaller, more compatible, more consistent (compared to unzip version) as long as the rebuild/fix time is not overly compromissed....

superdat or regular dat. problem no matter what. .zip or .7z files must be archived, or extension changed, to prevent them from being considered as an archive instead of rom during the next scan

hi,

I noticed the attached dats are missing from the latest UDC version. maybe these could be added to a future update.

and also some missing md5 sheet files that were in previous versions of UDC

It would be nice to include fruit machine emulator's in any future updates (at least I didn't notice any). front ends such as hyperspin would be nice also (not sure if this should be in emulator section or tool section...

Is "Ultimate Dats Collection (20180106-1442)" the latest version? If it's not can you post the updated set on the tracker?
