Request for explanation on some new tab when we donwload DAT files

Post by Oo_HappyKool_oO »

Hello friend my name is Oo HappyKool oO I was known here on the nickname Parappa 620 so I preferred to abandon Parappa620 for my nickname Gaming Oo HappyKool oO which is the one that suits me best.

I saw new categories on certain systems to create the dat according to its needs I would have liked to have some information on the way as it is again listed for example I saw the category [MIA ROMs] this one I think l to have understood it includes the roms for the moment MIA.
Another category is [Empty archives] what it corresponds to when we do our scan by the ROM manager. Then I saw for the *Nintendo entertaiment system* ROMs two options but I don't really understand. In relation to how this will be taken into account with the ROM manager. Header skip: [Add plugin] is this going to be requested with for example the header on CLRMAMEPRO if yes perfect and if I take the dat but with the Header skip: [Ignore] will this ingnore if I I understood the same thing for example with the *Famicom Disk System Entertainment* is this correct?

Thank for advance.

"Header" refers to the headers added by some tools. iNES header for NES, and the less-popular (and useless?) FDS header used for FDS. The hashes in the dat are for the unheadered ROMs - the header skipper files are just definition files to help ROM managers skip headers.

If you "include empty archives", you will see "missing roms" in your set marked as "undumped". it's a way to let people known what's missing.
Just exclude them (it's the default) to avoid confusion.

A similar situation is: "include private dumps". Probably you will not have them: set them to exclude to spare some time with your p2p searches.
