finding corresponding game sets is rather easy. :)
In your (or my) case certainly ;) because I think you already have a "clean" romset, or a well known romset like NO-INTRO without renamed file ;)
but I can garanty it's not always so easy ;) I have associated manually about 4000 Roms to there own games (on 470000+ Screenscraper DB have) and sometime it's a real pain in the A. to match a file like "XmZ2.zip" to the good game ;) Even when you know on wich system it is ;)
That's why I spoke about a "universal" file... It's just impossible it works on 100% case (even 80% will be a miracle ;) )
I have an eye on what UXS Scrape in the world and what is found or not by the API on Screenscraper (API Error Result Page) and every day their is lot's of.... "silly thing ?"
Gameboy game scraped as MegaCD game,
File like "_1.zip",
100Ko Iso file,
And so much different case...
An other thing, creating theses files mean creating a "new" local DB... because it will be very hard to have "complete" file.
You always found someone who have the "special Hack Edition Unrealeased merged Turbo ' Alpha 2 zero Russian translation".
That's why DB like Screenscraper, TheGameDb, and others were created ;)
The only way it "may" works is to create these files only for Known Full romset. Like NO-INTRO, retrobution, Tosec,... But it mean 1 file by System and 1 file by romset creator... A huge work to do ^^
In any way, feel free to take what you need on Screenscraper ;) it's CC ;)
(And if your work is in the same "mind" with better info/media, we will certainly ask if it's possible to reverse the process to fill the DB ;) )
For information, Screenscraper is a "young" DB ;) (a little more than 1 year old and already one of the most if it isn't the most "complete" DB ;) ).
All data aren't referenced, and some mistake may pass throught the moderator validation (we are human after all ^^)
If you found "wrong" information, or a "missing" information, don't hesitate to propose or comment the error directly on the website.
Information are from the community... If every one participate, we can have a nice DB ;)
@herb_fargus I really appreciate the advice. I am even more lost now ha! but I would like to learn how to navigate the terminal more I just don't have any friends that could walk me through it. I will check out your link. thanks!
