Just for organization questions, I think that is better a separate thread for Software Lists discussions.
Enjoy!

The user LoganB shared with us his work with us in the following link:
http://www.sendspace.com/file/lissvb

There's a lot systems software lists WIP there and maybe someone with write access can include then to the SVN.

Another project I was working on was my Cabinet/Machine Pictures. Although I have been collecting them I have had no time to photoshop them. I am sure that I may have some pics that Anto Pisa may not have. I will check this out over the next couple of days and post those.

I will try and maintain the other software lists I have created in the past. Hopefully later in the year I may have more time to contribute to MESS. In the meantime I will continue to be a big MESS fan and monitor this site and all the updates.

Regards

k1w1, just a question: do you have anything about these software lists you'll work on?
If you have something started, please, share with us smile

That's the idea.

@Anyone with this info: There's any place where I can find sha1, crc, size of dumps already done?
I want to start creating some software lists too smile

Only if they're in a previously made dat/xml (eg. No-Intro, TOSEC).

TOSEC has lists for alot of systems, but they tend to rely on md5 hashes. They also split floppies/roms that were in a compilation, and list them seperately. mad

No-Intro has not as many lists (mainly for modern consoles, eg. NDS, PSP, and DLC for Wii, PS3, and 360), but uses both crc32 and sha1 hashes, like MESS.

hmmm, LoganB software lists are not recognized by QMC2/MESS frown
It's necessary any modification in the MESS source code for that recognition?

Yes, the drivers need to be modified to reference the software lists.
