BadSeed: An Introduction


BadSeed

Recommended Posts

Hey everyone. I just wanted to introduce myself quickly. I've been editing the new sets here and helping Circo with a few other housekeeping items. I'm working to re-compile and edit the re-releases so that Circo can focus on making great videos. I've made some videos myself and frankly they sucked compared to what he turns out.

On naming conventions: We've chosen to go with No-Intro first, if available: better sets, cleaner convention. Personally I'd like to see TOSEC die, and by the time we get to re-releasing ISO art sets i.e. Sega CD, Sega Saturn etc., I hope I will have convinced Circo to go with "virtual No-Intro convention." I appreciate the work TOSEC has done and their contributions, but I think it's time to bury 'Old Blue.' Sometimes I wake up in the middle of the night, in cold terrifying sweats after dreaming of TOSEC.

If I were to translate my name into TOSEC, it might look something like this: BadSeed (California) (USA) (1970) (Kick-Ass) (Dude) (Male).rom. lol

On a side note, I'm a HUGE GameEx fan, and enjoy making themes for that front-end.

I've known Circo since 1991 (we went to high school together) and he's a great friend. I'm here to support him and this fabulous project- there is nothing like it in both scope and quality.

Word.

Well personally I still think the best distributing naming method would be to use the CRC-32 hash of the rom the video is for.

This allows use of No-Intro Image renamer which would allow end users to use the most recent No-Intro dat's to rename the vid's to the most current name.

Granted the file extensions would need to be changed pre-rename and post-rename...but the end result would be more accurate naming matches.

In addition have dats just for the vid's to rename back to CRC-32 or to rename to GoodMerge.

I agree Tosec uses way to long of file names...and really should just store all that info in a NFO file contained in their archive of the disc.

As for GameEx I guess everyone has to have a flaw.

Please stop doing this.

Anyway BadSeed, I'm looking forward getting more involved with this site as well... I have to make the switch from Good Tools to No Intro, so hopefully I can use EmuMovies to it's fullest potential.

I noticed ALOT of stuff in the FTP is named all screwed up... hopefully we can get it all cleaned up and organized.

I'll give it some thought once GameEx stops being distributed with my content.

I have seen this discussion before. Nothing good comes of it.
