So if the DAT is correct and ClrMamePro got it wrong, why do we cater to this buggy software instead of reporting and possibly fixing the bug?

I am not 100% sure DAT is correct, I wait confirmations.
I "touched" the XML export function and broke it since a month...

I think Dat is incorrect instead of software buggy, so reported it to here.

Current Nintendo DS Parent-Clone (20141018-130325) - ok with "Labyrinth (Ravensburger)", thanks!
but still has problem with tags in release names:

Code: Select all

<game name="Pony Friends 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) [b]">
        <description>Pony Friends 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) [b]</description>
        <release name="Pony Friends 2 [b]" region="EUR"/>
        <rom name="Pony Friends 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) [b].nds" size="67108864" crc="AE7E2AA5" md5="C55FED67D7E406C4C03E36B9185A57D4" sha1="0E45E4B2177BB9C4586091340B308CCC8B36FC17" status="baddump"/>
</game>
<game name="Pony Friends 2 (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)" cloneof="Pony Friends 2 (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It) [b]">
        <description>Pony Friends 2 (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)</description>
        <release name="Pony Friends 2" region="USA"/>
        <rom name="Pony Friends 2 (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds" size="67108864" crc="9F1A40AD" md5="A08AD185863B9A85D6918CD5D95D9EDC" sha1="CE66645A32A970E4F0B93C045515CC8906674441"/>
</game>
ClrMame trying to pack it to "Pony Friends 2 " instead of "Pony Friends 2". Like "P/Clone List" batch mode:

Code: Select all

7za a -mx9 "h:\!\Pony Friends.7z" "Pony Friends (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl) (Rev 1).nds" "Pony Friends (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl).nds" "Pony Friends (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl).nds" "Watashi no Pony (Japan).nds" "Pony Friends (USA) (En,Fr,De,Es,It,Nl) (Rev 1).nds"
So I guess P/C sets should have no tags in release names (e.g. all [] () must be stripped with except of (Ravensburger) or any other special cases).

That problem is yourself, its software buggy really, you should use rebuild function in ClrMamepro instead of fix function.

But I dont think tag should be added in release name, too.

I dont think "Version" and "Devstatus" should be added in release name.

If the roms are same games, release name should be same too.

The "merge" names for each ROM pack got the name of the Parent ROM name, losing que correct name of the pack. Check this example:

Correct pack name:
007 - Quantum of Solace
  • 2844 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Europe) (En,Fr)
  • 2934 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (USA) (En,Fr)
  • 3409 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Europe) (Es,It)
  • 3565 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Korea)


Current pack name:
007 - Quantum of Solace (Europe) (En,Fr)
  • 2844 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Europe) (En,Fr)
  • 2934 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (USA) (En,Fr)
  • 3409 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Europe) (Es,It)
  • 3565 - 007 - Quantum of Solace (Korea)

I attach the datfile generated with the old version of DOM of june 2013, with a recent dump of data.
tag was in.
Same for (Rev 1).

Are you sure you are using CM in the correct way?

I have the same problem here and I'm using Clrmame (4.016) the way I always have.
First I set up rom paths and organize regions:

When loading the dat in the scanner this happens:

I'm on Win7 SP1 x64 just in case that's needed info.
