info from romdb not downloading properly

Unread post by da1koopa » 17 Mar 2010, 20:24

I'm having trouble downloading info from the romdb. Just added a load of DS roms (138 in total) and it didn't find any info for any of them. I had a quick look at the database and there is plenty of info there on DS roms, so i found one that had complete info (pokemon diamond), clicked the rom in ecc and then clicked import datfile. After it had finished there was still no information on the rom. I renamed the rom to just Pokemon Diamond (same as it's listed in the romdb), tried again, but still nothing. Re-parsed my rom folder just in case that would help but no, still nothing. Can you tell me if this is a known issue or where I'm going wrong? I'd really like to advoid putting in all the data manually if it's already there to be downloaded!!

EDIT:

Just remembered, all the roms have been trimmed, not sure if this would affect anything? Also the checksum for the pokemon diamond rom is different to the 3 listed in the gameDB - again dont know if that would affect it

Hi da1koopa,

ECC works with CRC32 codes, not names ;), and if the roms are "trimmed" they have another CRC32 code than the original, or other roms, that's why the info is not applied on your rom :yes_head:
