DOM - things to do

Post by xuom2 » 14 Apr 2018 18:36

1) DUMP STATUS

the code that defines the rom status seems to be written 3 times and different in DOM.

a)
when I show the records,
http://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php ... =45&n=2349
http://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php ... =45&n=2350
one is "trusted 1" and the other is "not verified"
b)
when I download the verifications,
http://datomatic.no-intro.org/index.php ... ifications
both are "not verified".
c)
when I download the xml datfile, both are "verified".

the first urgent thing to do is unify this code.
there should be 1 unique function / algorithm that decides what's the status, and every other part of DOM should call it.

2) REDUMP

In DOM there is an option to add a "redump", while at this point is better to submit simply "dump", and let DOM scan and define what is a "redump" and what not.
"redump" menu is useful to automatic fill data of md5... i will search a better way to show this function in interface.

3) DATA IMPORT

I already load gameheader data (size, md5, etc) automatically, but not archive and source data.
i think that adding fields directly in the txt will save me the time of loading pages and interface and pushing buttons many times.

4) HIDDEN DATA

Will add a new field to ARCHIVE: hidden. Such items will disappear from the public eye.

5) PRIVACY

at the moment nicknames are hidden, will show nicknames of users that agree to this.

6) BULK IMPORT OF MEDIA DATA

I will add support to csv import for MEDIA table.

7) the future

In the future I will have to change again (!) (but it's always better :P) a bit the structure of the db.
Hard to explain...
Now it's easy to have "decrypted/encrypted" romdata for the same file. But there is no support to 3 or more formats. Or to formats with different file structure.
For this reason we have 1 NDS set with decrypted/encrypted options and 2 separated PS3 sets.
To merge PS3 we should declare for each SOURCE the formats supported and have 1 binlist for each format available.
We will have 1 ARCHIVE and the WAD dump(s), the CDN dump(s), the XXXXXXXX dump(s), ...
Design changed a lot of times in these years... I'm sorry ^_^

point (3): an initial version of this tool is online at SUBMIT / Upload Txt
other upload tools (dir2dat and pclone) were moved from ADMIN menu to SUBMIT menu.
feel free to check it but BE SURE YOU ARE USING THE ZTEST ROMSET!
