Importing data from RomDB - Lost Playcounts

Unread post by PerlMan » 16 Feb 2010, 19:29

Recenly I Imported RomDB for GBA.

:evil: I lost my rom's not in RomDB :evil:

Why is it made like this? Usermade metadata should never be deleted. It should supercede the data one gets from internet.

...

Alright. After reparsing: The roms were back in the ecc :yes_head: , but playcount's were all at 0. :angry:

Hi Perlman,

I don't think every 'userdata' is submitted to the ECC romDB (yet ;)), instead, create a backup of your database...

Or wait untill Andreas comes back from his wintersleep to get back to work on ECC ;)

So everytime I import RomDB from teh internets. My personal data gets overwritten?
And roms that aren't in RomDB are then removed too. So I have to reparse?
Is this why it's a beta?

Hi,

I can not verfiy this:
And roms that aren't in RomDB are then removed too.
I just added some roms, imported from internet and they are still here (and still with no meta since they are not online). So this should be another problem. Which platform you tested?

Platform was Nintendo DS.

The roms that 'were lost' were located in a different directory.
/ROM/NDS/TESTING/(here's lots of sh*t)
/ROM/NDS/(here's the hand picked few that were lost)

Could it be that ecc remembers only the dir that was added later or something similar?

Temporarily losin the roms is not a probles as they are physically still intact and after reparse thay are all back with my ratings and all, but losing playcounts is critical for me as i'm a stat-wh*re.

retest with GB.
Well, it didn't lose the game that i'd played, but nothing was imported either. No GB roms in RomDB? really?
Nevermind. After few retried I got some GB results. and my playcounts were left intact. :cool:


also a bit OT
When is RomDB supposed to update? I would like to contribute, but the metadata from the few games that I tried to submit hasn't appeared yet (it's been 2-3 days.).
Do I have to register in RomDB too?

Hi PerlMan,

The romDB is updated every hour...at least the online DAT file...;), so i assume the entries should be added :-k
