    No-Intro / REDUMP .dat compatibility with LaunchBox Database

    First post, so Hi and thanks for the great launcher! Sorry if this is considered a necro, but google led me here when trying to see if I could make use of dats to ease importing/updating my sets in launchbox. No-intro does actually supply (constantly updated) dats with the list of parent/clone games and their regions to make said "merged sets". Very useful information that would take a lot of the guess work out of various language barriers etc and allow launchbox to do a far nicer job of merging some games. The amount of work they put into that kind of stuff is insane. Much more to them than just filenames and hashes. Seems crazy to not make use of that information somehow. Either feeding the dats into launchbox directly, or just to run the names against the database occasionally. If you could take it a step further and actually use launchbox to update your sets and fix any changed entries in the launcher at the same time, that would be some next level stuff. (But obviously a massive job that won't happen). Still, nice to dream. hahaha Example (Text Version): 6087 - Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe) 5669 - Battle & Get! - Pokemon Typing DS (Japan) 6274 - Apprends avec Pokemon A la Conquete du Clavier (France) 6380 - Impara con Pokemon - Avventura Tra i Tasti (Italy) 6401 - Lernen mit Pokemon - Tasten-Abenteuer (Germany) 6533 - Aprende Con Pokemon - Aventura Entre Las Teclas (Spain) Example (Straight out of the Parent/Clone DAT): <game name="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)</description> <release name="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)" region="EUR"/> <rom name="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe).nds" size="134217728" crc="73d4ad7a" md5="99655f755f06c3ca400bb9e080d25231" sha1="45184ec8998ca6fe4641df154820ad6923b7db1f" status="verified"/> </game> <game name="Apprends avec Pokemon A la Conquete du Clavier (France)" cloneof="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Apprends avec Pokemon A la Conquete du Clavier (France)</description> <release name="Apprends avec Pokemon A la Conquete du Clavier (France)" region="FRA"/> <rom name="Apprends avec Pokemon A la Conquete du Clavier (France).nds" size="134217728" crc="bd728697" md5="ee099bd969beccb7f61a91767abf221f" sha1="6899d6265b47230d20c608bed105ea0fa92b4a08"/> </game> <game name="Aprende Con Pokemon - Aventura Entre Las Teclas (Spain)" cloneof="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Aprende Con Pokemon - Aventura Entre Las Teclas (Spain)</description> <release name="Aprende Con Pokemon - Aventura Entre Las Teclas (Spain)" region="SPA"/> <rom name="Aprende Con Pokemon - Aventura Entre Las Teclas (Spain).nds" size="134217728" crc="c91de98e" md5="f2e338517a0731f915fd0d8163c1cd46" sha1="0b6411b9dbf64b8724e663e85042a5bc3b16a9e3"/> </game> <game name="Battle &amp; Get! - Pokemon Typing DS (Japan)" cloneof="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Battle &amp; Get! - Pokemon Typing DS (Japan)</description> <release name="Battle &amp; Get! - Pokemon Typing DS (Japan)" region="JPN"/> <rom name="Battle &amp; Get! - Pokemon Typing DS (Japan).nds" size="134217728" crc="b5d625d9" md5="51cb587281bf9f06ee56823c1143dc5d" sha1="ad5a5347028fc40c9384e7f32039e09d8697875c" status="verified"/> </game> <game name="Impara con Pokemon - Avventura Tra i Tasti (Italy)" cloneof="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Impara con Pokemon - Avventura Tra i Tasti (Italy)</description> <release name="Impara con Pokemon - Avventura Tra i Tasti (Italy)" region="ITA"/> <rom name="Impara con Pokemon - Avventura Tra i Tasti (Italy).nds" size="134217728" crc="8e0044a4" md5="e6712f080b391012a49517d1290c81e4" sha1="1c104f907950454e815b460345c4b80fd68f1ee2"/> </game> <game name="Lernen mit Pokemon - Tasten-Abenteuer (Germany)" cloneof="Learn with Pokemon - Typing Adventure (Europe)"> <description>Lernen mit Pokemon - Tasten-Abenteuer (Germany)</description> <release name="Lernen mit Pokemon - Tasten-Abenteuer (Germany)" region="GER"/> <rom name="Lernen mit Pokemon - Tasten-Abenteuer (Germany).nds" size="134217728" crc="7641bf1b" md5="595080adf211f6054a83d363243d326d" sha1="d26690a6f9fe81afc81008818b0e50f0ed2d6c35" status="verified"/> </game>
