Recently split FDS sets

Post by xlD93jKf9 » 30 Nov 2016 01:42

I noticed that three entries have been split into disk 1 / disk 2 a little while back.

Bodycon Quest I - Abakareshi Musume Tachi (Japan)
Kind Gal's (Japan)
Tenshi Tachi no Houkago (Japan)

Here is what's in the 2016-11-27 20:24:37 .dat for them:

Code: Select all

game (
	name "Bodycon Quest I - Abakareshi Musume Tachi (Japan) (Disk 1) (Unl)"

Notice on each one that the (Disk 1) size is 262000 and the (Disk 2) size is 131000.

Shouldn't they both be 131000 in each case?

Before they were split, each of the three were 262000 (and had the same hash info), so anyone using a ROM manager would have automatically renamed the old one to the new "(Disk 1)" ROM, and it may not have been obvious that this oversight in sizes occurred.

This is what I suspect the corrected information should be:

Code: Select all

   name "Bodycon Quest I - Abakareshi Musume Tachi (Japan) (Disk 1) (Unl)"

Yes, one FDS disk side is 65,000 bytes, so one disk is 131,000 bytes.

Thanks, I gathered the filesize vs. number of disk sides equation from an old post of yours.

My question is not so much about any particular size being correct for a number of sides, but rather the current FDS .dat file showing a pair of disk's (all 4 sides) worth of data in the "(Disk 1)" ROM instead of only the data for disk 1 itself (two sides).

EDIT:

Looking at version 20161130-192343,

I see that these three items have been corrected.

Thank you very much to C. V. Reynolds.
