This is so wonderful, thanks ressurectionx!
I just got everything downloaded and tested and it is working great. You saved me untold hours.
I ran into a snag though.... my xbox is out of hard drive space so I decided to only use the English games to save space. Now I'm trying to figure out a way to slim down the artwork and video previews to only include the matching English box art and game previews. Any suggestions on how to do this?
I used your English datafile and that worked for the ROMs, leaving me with just the 700 odd titles. I've been thinking maybe I should try and write a script that will search through the artwork folders and compare what it finds there to the English ROMs that are left and move any that match. I'm not very good at writing scripts though.
Perhaps someone has a better suggestion? If not I guess I might just separate them manually. I mean you've already compiled everything into one nice and neat pile, how long could it possibly take to sort 700 titles?
Wish me luck.
No problem. That's what I'm sharing all this for....
Whenever I want to take things out of a set or a particular folder, I use my FTP program to make it easy. Now that you only have the English roms, go to your XBox folder for your SNES roms in one window and your videos in the second window. Just filter out all the matching names and then you can delete the rest of the videos easy.
Probably should put this tip in the main thread since I included the separate datfiles. Thanks for bringing it up.
I figured out Boulder Dash, but I forgot to tell you. I've also got a ton of games to work right without a problem after giving them a chance and taking your suggestions. I'm about 2/3 through the compatibility list and I've got suggestions for controller fixes and I point out games where I don't have controller fixes in mind but there definately needs to be a fix (I'll leave some of them up to you). Also, when I decide that the AdamX sound engine works better I make note of it. There's also a few games that don't work for me at all and maybe you could try them and verify.
I'll probably finish it sometime tonight.
Here it is:
Let me know your thoughts and fixes and I'll update the list.
Thanks for the tip. Any idea on the easiest way I can do this so I can reupload a datfile that works for everyone?
