Le messie des managers est enfin arrivé en version stable après plusieurs mois de phases béta. Des utilisateurs triés sur le volet (dont votre serviteur^^) ont pu apporter des conseils ou reporter des bugs en vue que l’auteur de ce fantastique manager clair et intuitif finisse de le peaufiner .

Un gestionnaire de roms avec une interface aussi claire que Romcenter tout en étant peut être plus complet à la façon d’un clrmame.
L’immense avantage de ce manager est de pouvoir scanner n’importe quel repertoire de roms , en VRAC & ensuite -en fonction de ce que vous avez comme dats- de les ranger et replacer automatiquement. (très utile si vous avez des tonnes de dats (TOSEC).

Ce manager peut devenir LA référence au point que l’on peut presque se passer de l’utilisation de CMPRO, voire le remplacer complètement.

Je ne peux tarir d’éloges sur ce manager qui fera peut-être naître en vous la maladie de la collectionnite (Ce n’est pas Kludge, fervent adepte et beta-testeur de Romvault, qui a investi dans un RAID5 de 5 x 3 Tb WD Red, qui me contredira !)

GordonJ : The new core data structure was made, and then I converted over the DAT loader, and then got the File scanner going, and everything was going along good and then I started working on the Finding Fixes code, and then got into a world of CRC’s, SHA1’s and MD5’s, it was probably around 10 months ago we (that’s me and my great Beta testers) realized that just fixing on CRC’s and file size alone was not going to cut it. So after a couple more month Levels of scanning and fixing where born, and then after a few more months Levels of scanning and fixing where about working, and then the improved DAT loader was developed, and oh yes, the Missing report code was never converted over, and then the idea of supporting filenames greater than 260 characters came along, and fast Zip processing was added………..

You get the idea, the project just kept on snowballing. So here we are today around 16 months later, with what is RomVault 2.0.0, with 40’ish private Beta version being tested, about 300 check-ins to the source control. (So that works out at about one check-in every 1.5 days for over 18 months!!!,You did already click on that Donate button over there of the left, I hope.)

Is RomVault 2.0.0 finished? No, nothing is ever finished, there is a great big list of things still to be added to it, but it is a great big step up from 1.7. So before you ask there are 2 things still at the top of the to-do list, so Sorry, there is still no 7z support, and still no CHD support. But I will put this another way, neither of those 2 features would ever have fitted into the 1.7 data structure, and so also look out for the 2.1 development cycle starting. (As I actually already have a private test version of RomVault that does to a limit degree support 7z.)

Edit : Mise à jour 20h

ROMVault 2.0.1
————–
BugFixed: Cancel button while file scanning was leaving ZIP files status in an inconsistent state.
BugFixed: Fix ROMs now removes unknown empty directories.

New: Added Support for ‘rebuildto’ in DATs to enable sub directories to be specified in DATs.
New: Added ‘nodump’ instead of ‘flags nodump’ as some DATs are missing the key word flags.
