Another general arcade question...CHD's!

Hey folks,

 

Just had a quick question about Mame CHD's, hopefully it's not a stupid one! :)

 

I've cut down my mame set using romlister, though I've not got the full CHD set due to the size.

Is there an app/tool which can tell me from my xml database which games in my list need CHD's?

 

Any input appreciated.

 

Cheers!

I've only ever kept a complete mame set so im not a lot of help here. With storage being so cheap these days its just easier imho

Same as Circo here. I user Hyperspin and just choose what I want displayed. Currently running it so all I see is games with a complete theme. Makes it look amazing. :) But I still have HS pointed to a complete mame ROM/CHD folder. It is like 300 gig for the complete mame set and the HS project with a very complete list of emulators is about 2TB so I feel it's just not worth cutting back for such a small outlay. :)

I clearly need to invest in some larger drives! :)

It's not so much about the drivespace, downloading 200gig+ for the CHD's can be an issue with download or ratio restrictions.

 

I found an application called "duplicates finder", I put a list of all working CHD's into a text file and used the tool to compare that with my hyperspin MAME database. Duplicates finder just showed me the common game names in both files...6 gig of CHD's (excluding cliffhanger and area51) rather than a whole lot more.

 

But yeah...I know I could of made this easier for myself! :)
