Romcenter Imported Files

Thu Oct 02, 2003 6:35 am

1st of all thanx for such a great job that you have done on this. :)

Ok now my problem i have download the said CD's and all works great.
But i thought i would create my own database using the romcenter import feature.

So here's what i do.

1: Create New GameBase
2: Import RC Dat File e.g. Commodore C64 - Games - CRT (TOSEC-v0.02_RC)
3: Check ADD Zip File Extension
4: Check Tosec File Names
5: Check Scan For roms
6: Uncheck Only Search Maching Filename Extensions

Now Game Field Name is set to Col 3
And Game FileName Field is set to Col 5

I then Scan and it does it's thing.

I then load GB and load my new Database, next i add the path to my roms.
Then i verify and none of the games show up...?

If i change Game Field Name to Parent Description Col 2 it finds some of the games if i don't scan for roms.

Can anyone help me on how to set this up so it finds my roms please :)
