RomCenter DAT is not supported

Unread post by Shando » 17 Nov 2015, 10:35

Hi All,

I am having some issues creating my database of games.

I have just finished downloading the AMIGA CD32 ROMS and tried to obtain the Images/Snaps etc.

Firstly I tried the ECC Database, but that didn't contain anything.

Secondly, I tried EmuMovies but that keeps giving me this error when it gets to one particular ROM (Manchester United - Premier League Champions v1.0CD): "Object reference not set to an instance of an object"

Finally, I tried downloading all of the images from EmuMovies and trying to match them using a ".dat" file. I tried TOSEC, No-Intro and a couple of others I found lying around the internet and each one gives me this message: "This RomCenter DAT version is not supported".

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Thanks

Shando

Hi Phoenix,

Attached is one of the dat files from the "TOSEC - DAT Pack - Complete (2293) (TOSEC-v2015-06-04)" download.

Hi shando,

ECC cannot import DAT files based on XML, you have to convert it to clrmame first, i tried the converter DATUTIL here: viewtopic.php?f=54&t=2573

But it spits out an UNKNOWN error when ran with:

Code: Select all

datutil.exe -f cmp "Commodore Amiga CD32 - Games (TOSEC-v2012-07-13_CM).dat"

Code: Select all

===============================================================================
DatUtil v2.46bh (22 February 2012) - using DatLib v2.36bh (22 February 2012)

===============================================================================
Processing Commodore Amiga CD32 - Games (TOSEC-v2012-07-13_CM).dat:
  Loading the file into memory (first 8.0KB)...
Aborted processing due to errors!
So maybe there is another converter on the web?...
