Using romcenter 4 RC2.

I used dat-o-matic ( to generate a parent-clone xml for nintendo DS without numbers and hash decrypted.

Used this xml as the source datafile for a new database.

Imported the nintendo DS rom folder.

Many roms are not recognized, but should be. For example :

The rom is not recognized, but the CRC is part of the source datafile :

<game name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (USA)" cloneof="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)">
        <description>Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (USA)</description>
        <release name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (USA)" region="USA"/>
        <rom name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (USA).nds" size="16777216" crc="03d56334" md5="c8065c4b4a21337c2928a14973218d26" sha1="203e222326b8eb788c24c4a8a1805845d0fe99f5" status="verified"/>

Another game who is recognized this time :

And the corresponding source data :

<game name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)">
        <description>Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)</description>
        <release name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It)" region="EUR"/>
        <rom name="Yoshi Touch &amp; Go (Europe) (En,Fr,De,Es,It).nds" size="16777216" crc="1d829d6f" md5="99d550900ed349d2084723a65b1a67b2" sha1="9c0db52b0c70c3e159da161be9ecc216d2642953" status="verified"/>

    This is really strange, the crc matches the datafile, it should be green or yellow... Did you select a release filter ?

    I don't think so. I would like to verify to be sure, but "Set filters" is disabled. Who can I access it?

    Tried again with a dataset from no-intro for nintendo 64 with type "parent/clone xml" and big endian. Game "007-goldeneye (usa).zip is not recognized because the rom "007-goldeneye (usa).z64" is considered unknown with crc b6330846. Yet, the datafile says this.

    <game name="007 - GoldenEye (USA)" cloneof="007 - GoldenEye (Europe)">
            <description>007 - GoldenEye (USA)</description>
            <release name="007 - GoldenEye (USA)" region="USA"/>
            <rom name="007 - GoldenEye (USA).z64" size="12582912" crc="b6330846" md5="70c525880240c1e838b8b1be35666c3b" sha1="abe01e4aeb033b6c0836819f549c791b26cfde83"/>

    Note that I applied a 1G1R filter with the following regions, in this order : Eu, Fr, Us, Au. Hope it is not a "noob user induced problem" :-( .

    This is not reliable and will probably delete a lot of games if the user's don't give attention. I can't use it until the next release as it don't recognize half of the games. Do you expect to publish it soon?
