Re: Up-to-date ECC DAT Files?

Hi again, Well, I've managed to get hold of almost 15GB of Emulators ;) (approx. 5GB of MAME/MESS versions and quite a few duplicates across different systems). What would be the best way to get them to you? I can post a USB if you want to PM me an address, or if you have FTP I can start uploading (...

Helping with EDC

Hi Buddy,

I can probably get heaps of emulators, but it won't be for a while as I have to go to Brisbane for a week next Tuesday.

I'll see what I can do.

Regards

Up-to-date ECC DAT Files?

Hi All, Just wondering if anyone had more up-to-date ECC DAT files than those in the download section? I've seen a few posts where users have uploaded them to the forum, but most of the links are dead and PutLocker sends my laptop into meltdown :cry: Any help would be greatly appreciated as I now ha...

Import EmuControlCenter DATFile Dialog Freezes

Hi Phoenix,

Just thought I'd let you know that the 'Import EmuControlCenter DATFile' dialog freezes if the last accessed folder no longer exists. Occasionally it displays an error dialog, but not always.

Regards

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

so does it takes that long?
I left mine running for almost 2 hours and it still hadn't finished :cry:

Once I added the indexes startup is almost instantaneous :P

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

Hi Phoenix, I think I may have worked out what's wrong :detective: All I did was add INDEXES to 'eccident' and 'crc32' for both 'mdata' and 'fdata' and ECC now starts with no problems (that I've noticed) :clap: I believe that the query running on startup was just taking too long due to the number of...

Debugging ECC

Hi Phoenix, Just wondering if there was an easy way to debug the PHP code of ECC? I have tried adding various 'print' type statements (as per several different PHP websites) but they all seem to crash the Console Window when I place them inside a Class (such as App in ecc.php). Thanks in advance. Sh...

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

Hi Phoenix, I've been doing a bit of digging myself and have come across a couple of anomalies in my non-working eccdb. 1) There seems to be some discrepancies between mdata and fdata. 2) Some extensions in mdata appear to be wrong. I have attached a spreadsheet just showing my 32x listing with the ...

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

You could very well be right :( I've just exported the table from SQLite Browser and I can already see some strange characters when I open it in Excel using UTF-8 encoding! If I open in Code Page 1252 (Windows Western Europe) the characters appear fine. I have quite a few Russian & Spanish games for...

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

Hi Again, When I run Step 2 I get the following error: table mdata_TEMP has 34 columns but 37 values were supplied I guess this means that my dB has already been updated correctly??

Re: Importing Images Issues

Just thought I'd post my updated code which seems to account for both of the above issues: def parseDAT(self): o = untangle.parse(str(self.sDATFile)) iCount = 0 self.txtConversion.setText('Renaming ......') fi = ntpath.basename(str(self.sDATFile)) if ( fi[:7] == "pS_Snap" or fi[:7] == "pS_Titl"): fo...

Re: Importing Images Issues

Hi Phoenix, I thought I would just post the relevant code from my main Python file as it is really a simple XML reader that renames the relevant .png file (the rest is all GUI stuff so probably not of much interest??): def parseDAT(self): # "untangle" is a simple xml parser for Python # "self.sDATFi...

Re: ECC Crash after Update 00622

Hi Phoenix, I renamed my database to "_160916_old" and started up ecc. ECC started fine & received an update but with an empty database. I checked my old database in the SQLite Browser and the three columns are all there. I then deleted the new blank database and renamed my old one back. Restarted E...

Re: Importing Images Issues

I have put together a small Python program (using Qt for the GUI) and it renames all the files based on the DAT from Progetto-Snaps.

Hey buddy,

No joy converting :(

I'll see if I can put together a little program to rename the files.
