z010 - LEGO City Undercover - The Chase Begins (USA) (Demo) (Kiosk) is absent in decrypted 3DS.

xuom2, could you do something with this? As I thought problem with absent decrypted files was solved for old ones and new ones should be always good - but I was wrong it seems... Maybe you can do some sort of check to ensure both encrypted and decrypted are present before save (or something along these lines)? As really I do not feel safe anymore using decrypted dat because of such discrepancy...

It was the last one (there is a tool to check the missing data: Search / Reports / #9).
I think it was added directly without Decrypted data.

Added, thanks.

When I download them, they are named like this:
  • Nintendo - Nintendo DS (Decrypted)
  • Nintendo - Nintendo 64 (BigEndian)
But when they are imported into clrmamepro, they appear like this:
  • Nintendo - Nintendo DS Decrypted
  • Nintendo - Nintendo 64 BigEndian
And since the same time, for those 2 dats, when thee is an update, they don't appear as updated in the WWW Mode (profile.xml) feature and I need to compare manually they last update date/time.
The same thing is actually happening with "Wii (Digital)", which, once downloaded, is labelled "Wii (Digital) (WAD)". Thank you for fixing this :)

https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.ph ... =52&n=2852

There is some issues with that entry:
  • There is a non-authorized character in the name (é)
  • No region in name (Spain) with double (N64) instead
Thank you for this fix :)

Yay, it's me again :D

It seems the dat for Wii U Digital CDN can't be downloaded and produced an error message about a cache issue.

Code: Select all

Custom settings for this datfile have been blocked.

Warning: this datfile is available only in cache-mode.
It's possible you get a download error until the proper cache is written by a datter.
Is it possible the download have been voluntary blocked? Thanks for fixing it :)

WiiU CDN is back and the new cache system doesn't need the "incremental" clicks anymore. This will be extended to the other "big" systems.

Something is wrong on Datomatic after last upgrade I think
If you choose "decrypted" option - it still downloads encrypted, even that file name is "Decrypted", but inside it is Encrypted
For example you go in https://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php?page=download choose New Nintendo 3DS, choose Decrypted, click on download and you get Encrypted instead, even that filename is "Decrypted" in zip

Thanks for reporting.
I did a clean up of 2GB of caches and it seems to work.
Wonder if it's an old bug in old caches or some random bug in my crappy code.
Please let me know if this happens again.
Thanks!

(now without caches DOM will be a bit slower for some time)
