About This File

What is this new download service?

The EmuMovies Download Service Utility completely automates the installation and use of all of our artwork packs and media in the front end of your choice. This means that instead of spending months of downloading, sorting and renaming it will now only take minutes per system (plus download time). The download service utility only downloads the content to match your roms and renames the content automatically to whatever romset you have so it just works!

Feature List

  • Support for over 100 different systems
  • Notifies you upon startup if any sets you have previously downloaded have been updated
  • Allows you to only view those sets so you can easily update your artwork and video packs
  • Downloads artwork to match your roms (only what you need to save space)
  • Automatic renaming (requires no user input, artwork and videos will match your roms)
  • Ability to individually download sets or all at once
  • Tied into the EmuMovies member system (access is immediate)
  • Limited mode for basic Members (All artwork packs supported, 250MB/day limit)
  • Video Snap downloads for Supporting Members
  • On the fly conversion to AVI for front ends that only support AVI format.
  • Plus more!

 

Notes:

  • Your login is your site login for EmuMovies.com (not your ftp login)

 

Compatability:

  • Minimum OS Requirement Win XP SP3 (Vista or Later Recommended)

I love "DSU" it is such a great time saver. It's great not having to FatMatch anything and when adding just a few new roms to a system, it makes things very painless to update your artwork. And to get all artwork in a single click is just AMAZING!!!

Great work to Circo and all that developed this Outstanding tool!!! DSU is the single most Best utility I have ever had the pleasure of using. Thank You So Much :)

Suggestions:

------------------

One feature I'd like to see is something where the user can customize what the "All Artwork" will download. So "All Artwork" will also get you the Manuals, Music and Videos (of a specified quality & format). Of course Videos have High Quality and Low Quality so if you choose HQ and they are not available DSU will instead choose the Lower Quality Automatically instead.

Alternatively the user could set "All Artwork" to just download Snaps, Covers and Music etc... and leave everything else alone, as opposed to choosing specific sets individually.

An "Update All Systems" feature would be kinda cool too. Just add checkboxes for all the systems you have in your collection and DSU will get content on all your systems in just one click. Of course, I can see this option being avoided as it might put a little too much strain on the EmuMovies Server.

Lastly a "Read Me" file would be good as there are a few features that one may not fully understand.

IE: "Check for Updated Files" does this search for updated files in the users rom collection or the EmuMovies database? Does it use the "have.txt" or "missing.txt" files or are those Text files just for personal use?

These are not complaints just suggestions for this next to perfect utility. 5 Stars Baby!!!! Love it! Thanks again :)

Having just found this project along with Hyperspin I was wondering how I would get all the media onto my roms. Couldn't believe it when I seen this and read the description. The way this whole thing has come together is unbelievable. Excellent work.

I haven't tried it for videos yet as I will be hammering my bandwidth this week due to golden torrent week on UGG :yahoo:

But so far it's blazing through my ZIPPED Goodrom sets. So painless it's truly amazing.

As I type this I realise I still haven't become a paid subscriber yet. I will sort that out right now as you guys deserve the support. Kings among men :praising:

I couldn't get this to work. It logged in fine, but when I point it at my ROMs and where I want it to save data, pick a system, then click Go, the window dims for a second and nothing happens. No error message, just nothing happens. An error message would be helpful, if it's having a problem of some sort.

For some reason, this new version does not provide a download for the Videos for MAME or any other system. Is this by design?

The older version I used used to download the videos via the utility and now I have to search for each video using the ftp site.

Very disappointed.

I think you are confusing the Download Service with our F.T.P. completely different things. The F.T.P. is still available to Supporting Members.

This tool is AMAZING. The time saved downloading and renaming files is worth WAY more than the cost of a lifetime subscription. I don't know how you guys have the time and energy to keep everything updated, but know that it's appreciated!

Hello there!

Thanks again for this utility, I've been making heavy use of it.

Just one bug to report at the moment, when selecting the Philips Videopac+ I get the error message, "Search Error: System Not Found"

Do you accept paypal payments? Any way I can send you payment via paypal? I am hesitant to submit any personal information on a site without an ssl cert installed.
