CD-i cue files

Post by Gefflon »

Recently some CD-i files were renamed (region fixes) which of course also needs changes in the .cue files.

Redump offers the cue files for download, since they do not contain any copyrighted information.

I don't see this on dat-o-matic. Are there any plans for that?

ok, we have a preliminary support.

don't send cue files as normal source "files" but as source "attachments".
1) when submitting them, flag them as "cue" in the submit form
2) replace file content that has to be replaced by archive title with #####

you should be able to download the cue with the correct content.
dom will change the file checksum, so once we confirm the new functions, they will be easily included in datfile.

hiccup is testing this (at the moment upload and download should work, I'm waiting more feedback to add cue inside datfiles).
the best is having examples from the various different Non-Redump systems, to avoid future surprises or code re-engineering.

my biggest doubt is attaching cue to files or to sources. and if it should be optional to replace ##### with archive title or file name.

Can you confirm the difference between "in datfile" and "not in datfile" in the cue upload?
I am going to test here
