clone info - not in eccDat ?

I want to show you what I'm doing some evenings in my spare time.
At first I want to say that this is ONLY A PRIVATE HOBBY PROJECT, I don't want to "kill" eCC, But eventually wake up Andreas a bit ;-)

clone info - not in eccDat ?

Unread post by Vicman » 14 Jul 2012, 15:30

Hi Micha,

i've marked many vic20 games as clones.....(using the option : mark for linking - link as clone)

then i saved the eccDat file (export ecc1-datfile) and reloaded the Dat.
Now, all "clone-infos" are lost ](*,)

it seems this infos were not stored to the eccDatfile.

Do you want to add this clone-info (and maybe also other infos) to the Datfile in the Future ?
Or do we need a special Datfile for eCC2 ? - ('cause those Dat's wont work with eCC1)

Is there any solution yet, to save "clone-infos" etc. to a Datfile ?

-------------------------------------------------------------------------
EDIT:
2 Questions :
1. I can mark a game as "Favorite Dump" in Metainfo/Personal
- but can't find a button "show Fav.Dump" - so, is this a to-do ?

2. for Image-Edit view :
can you please add the column "Cover 3D"

Hi Vicman,

There is NO 'clone' option in ECC, so therefore it is not available...Micha has to write a 'own' DAT for ECC2
Are your info's not in the ECC2 DB stored? (not lost?) or did you empty the DB after export?

Hi Phoenix,

yeah...i used the option "hide all roms and delete metadata".......

don't know, where to find the db-info.....to bring the datas back......

however, i've added the "clone-info" again......
but no way yet, to save them to dat....

btw.
would be nice to have this option in eCC1......
i know.....atm we need Andreas for those options.

Yeah actually....we need Andreas back to get some 'major' functions added in ECC fast :sorcerer:

But i did some ECC PHP programming myself in the past 3-4 years :smartass: , i could do it, but therefore it just costs me too much time atm...i hope you understand...

Besides i got more things for ECC to come m8, just wait... currently i am busy with eccUpdate, the replacement of eccLive! and later this year we have EDC 'reloaded' coming up!

Ps. Can you download a emulator like Project64 from the downloads section, would you try it for me please!

Thanks for testing!

The download in this board are just the beginning of something great, imagine more than 1000 emulators stored for about 180 platforms....all versions known....and installed & configured in ECC with just a few clicks, no more searching...ECC would be the first & only frontend to pull that off! :thumbsup:

Hi, phoenix is right. In the dat are only these options, that where in ECC1 available... I have to extend the datfile format for storing these values. But then they are not compatible to ECC1.

And yes, handling favorite games is on my todo list.

@Phoenix: I don't think we need ALL versions for emulators. We need WORKING versions.
