Utility to generate map files


distorted

Recommended Posts

I have a bunch of ROMs that are named pretty close to the correct cartridge name and I want to generate a map file so that GameEx will display the correct name. I looked around for a bit for a utility that could accomplish this task and didn't find one.

So, I wrote one. You point it to a directory of ROMs and a file that contains cartridge names, one per line, and it will find the closest match in that set for each ROM. It matches every ROM name and provides a certainty quotient that you can then use to remove some of the less accurate mappings. You can also manually alter a match.

The algorithms used focus more on finding an accurate match than on efficiency so larger data sets can take a bit to process.

If anybody has any interest in the source code, contact me.

This is not something that I am planning to maintain, but I figured it might be useful to someone out there.

EDIT: I had tried to attach the executable, but that didn't seem to work out.

EDIT 2: Attached executable. CartMapGenerator.zip

I wrote a pretty nice app for mapfiles at GameEX. You can find it in my stickied 'Applications and Guides by Tempest' thread.

Nothing against your app, I'm just sayin'

Well, try it anyway, and if it gives you any trouble, let me know. It has a lot of nice features,like the ability to group similar games together.

Nice, you've definitely have a lot more implemented features.
