No need to wait for Logiqx

Unread post by lordashram » 07 Nov 2010, 15:44

Have MAME create the original mame.dat for you:

Code: Select all

mame.exe -listxml >mame.dat
or

Code: Select all

mame64.exe -listxml >mame.dat

Sorry for posting a new topic but the other two are locked.

Also, wouldn't it be possible to integrate that script into ECC?
Using ECC's path\to\mame\executable variable to create the mame.dat,
then running the rest of that script to create the dats,
then copying & injecting the new dats into ECC.

Hi lordashram,

yeah logiqx is getting behind, i knew the command above :P, but do we need to convert it to the oldstyle CLR mame dat first? or can the dats be directly created from this XML file, i'll see if there is any automation possible...

That is the second line in my own script (first is to delete all current dats in my temp dat folder),
So yeah the dats used for ECC can be used from that one, once converted using the datutil.

Well i am currently working on a DATfile updater like lordashram asked here, it's almost done, but a little work to be done by splitting the dats and create a GUI option in ECC, more soon!

this module will be called ECC-DFU (DatFileUpdater), some screens (wip)

Ok, the tool is almost complete, but it still needs a 'backup' function for your existing dats ;-), for the rest it's fully functional!, more soon!
