Multiple CHD rename/re-org does not always create respective directory

Issue #101 resolved
Former user created an issue

When you have many CHD files at the root of a directory and Romcenter detects that it needs to create a folder for each one of them in order to organize/fix them, it will normally create a dir for each and move the CHD in it. However for some files it will fail to do so and will rename the actual name.chd to instead of creating dir/name.chd and when you click fix again, nothing happens.

    Here is part of my log for a renaming issue where Romcenter shortens the name of the files when trying to fix them, making them undetectable anymore by the MAME software. I think it doesn't like multiple "." dots in the name.

    FYI I had the same issue listed at the top as well but I could not recreate it. I will post a log as soon as it happens again.

    Please post the file located at c:\programdata\romcenter\romcenter_xml.log. There is one file per day and is much more detailed.

    I have found the problem. It seems mame removed the trailing chd extension in the dat extracted from mame.exe. I added a control and now it's working. It will be available in next release.

    This is fixed and will be released with rc3. Rename rom -> give the correct chd name Remove useless rom -> move the chd in folder
