I have some complete romsets, and I use the goodtools sustem for checking and renaming. But I do not need every single version of a game only the U, E and J rom for a particulat game. I was thinking aboiut doing a find in a specific folder then invert selection, delete. But as one set is not complete, and some roms dont have the [!] only U E or J without (hack) or whatever i cannot do a cearch which does not delete wanted games. Can I use goodtools or another prog to delete the clones and other games that are not [!] gooddumps


Many Thanks

how about using windows/linux search feature and looking for *(U)*[!]* ?
Then you just cut them out of the folder, and you can simply delete the roms left if you want to do so. But remember some (U) roms do work, but aren't 100% verified and therefore dont have the [!]
although they might really be the good dumps smile.gif

If you use goodtools you can have it put them into subfolders for you as well... (sorted)

How do i do that, I am using the GoodWindows frontend. Some roms are like "Game (U)" and not "Game (U) [!]" so I cant do a search for "!". I cant find the right perameters in goodtools

Thanks

Yep, now I can cut down the amount of roms I have, no need for 20 versions of the same game! I dont have to have subfolders to avoid hitting the 4096 file limit of FATX

run 'goodxxxx rename dirs' and it will separate all your roms into their own directories, usa, jap, etc.
