Complete sets and my batfile to add any rom to Retroarch playlist in 2 mins or less a...

The reason i am posting this is in my retroarch build i find alot roms cant be added due to they dont match the crc values and i get around that by using my version of shiftys lpl list maker.

Its a bat file that you run after editing your roms folder directory to match the ones in the bat file you can name the roms folder what ever you want but i do it this way for ease and simple for me..

my directories names like so

0101-Atari 2600
0201-Atari 5200
0301-Adult Games
0401-Amstrad
0501-Atari - 7800
0701-Atari Lynx
0801-Bandai WonderSwan
0901-Bandai WonderSwan Color
1001- ColecoVision
1201-Commodore - 64
1301-Commodore - Plus-4
1401-Emerson - Arcadia 2001
1501-Entex - Adventure Vision
1601-GBA
1801-Magnavox - Odyssey2
1901-Mame
2001-Microsoft - MSX
2101-Sony Playstation 2
2201-Nintendo - Famicom Disk System
2301-Nintendo - Family Computer Disk System
2401-Nintendo - Family Computer Disk System [headered]
2501-Nintendo - Game Boy
2601-Fairchild - Channel F
2701-Nintendo - Game Boy Color
2801-Nintendo - Nintendo 64
2901-Sega - GameGear
3001-Sega
3101-Sega Megadrive
3201-Sony - Playstation
3301-Sony - PlayStation Portable
3401-Sega Dreamcast
3501-Panasonic 3DO
3601-SNES 1000 Games

 

Now inside the bat file you should see this to match   and you can name the playlist name to what ever you wish but it get confusing if no uniformity

SET RomDirs[11]=3401-Sega Dreamcast
SET PlaylistNames[11]=3401-Sega Dreamcast
SET SupportedExtensions[11]=*.cdi *.gdi *.zip

SET RomDirs[12]=1601-GBA
SET PlaylistNames[12]=1601-GBA
SET SupportedExtensions[12]=*.gba *.zip    

red must be in numerical order each game  to get scanned

Blue must match your to be scanned folder name exactly  

green is each directory roms game ext. 

Make sure you set the Retroarch scan rom dir and the Retroarch dir to match yours

:: Change these to point to your RetroArch and top-level ROM directories
set RADir=C:\RetroArch
set ROMDir=C:\Roms Folder

this will scan all files in each of your dir so be aware a zip and a bin of same makes a 2 x entry

Here is my bat file to scan your roms http://s000.tinyupload.com/?file_id=13725770105452361426

 

Now your ready to get the folowing files

If you head over to the site https://the-eye.eu/public/rom/

I love the Playstation files within the NTSC it containes 1780 games. For those who are familar with wget at the bottom of each page contains the wget link to take the files .

 

And for those that like complete sets  the next 2 links are 37 gigs and 40 gig .

https://archive.org/download/No-Intro-Collection_2015-03-03

1 is the NO INTRO romset

You used to be able to just download single roms from reliable websites whenever you wanted one, but since rom sites are getting shut down left and right it might be better to just get a full set to archive yourself locally.

That's what I thought, so I went through Google, Reddit, Torrents and archive.org

Info:trying to find the newest possible versions of these romsets, since they still regularly get additions or corrections. To save you that trouble I wanted to share the links.

No-Intro Collection (by no-intro.org)

Full collection of every clean dump of every real cartridge. Includes all different existing official versions of every game, but no romhacks, translations or homebrew.

Download size: 37 GB

Systems: https://i.imgur.com/cluxgnU.png

2 The Everdrive

The Everdrive Packs (by smokemonster)

This pack focuses on sorting and being ready to use (with flashcards, but obviously works with emulators). It includes only 1 version of every game, the US version being preferred, with the addition of exclusives from other regions. However it also includes zipped region add-on packs that add back all roms of that region. This pack in addition to the official roms also includes notable romhacks, translations and homebrew in their own folders. More info about the pack here.

This also includes the "Game Series Collections" (by tjstogy), which is a heavily sorted and curated folder structure by genres, developers, best-of lists and more. These are duplicate roms that are already in the base pack, and an optional download for some systems because of the size. They are more of a "what to play" list that lets you easily find games you might want to play. More info

 

 

Download links:

No-Intro (05/2018)

Direct download: https://archive.org/download/NoIntro2018/No-Intro%202018.7z - Very slow. Only use if you can't torrent. I would recommend using a download manager so you can resume the download in case you lose connection in the 3 days it takes to download.

Torrent file: https://archive.org/download/NoIntro2018/NoIntro2018_archive.torrent - Is being seeded by several people, took me a few hours to download. Obviously only use if torrenting is legal in your country, or with a VPN. If you need a torrent client, qBittorrent is recommended.

- You need a free archive.org account to be able to download these files, or you will get a "item not available" message.

-- I converted the torrent file to a magnet link: magnet:?xt=urn:btih:f36012c79151b2a3b759c6dd66a340e56ebefaf8&dn=NoIntro2018

Everdrive Packs (current version)

https://pastebin.com/raw/gKEbn2TD - Mega (without premium) has a download limit of 5 GB per 6 hours per IP. I downloaded it by cloning the Everdrive folder to my Megasync folder and letting it sync with my PC, and reconnecting my internet every time I get the limit reached message. If you don't have dynamic IP in your country you can use a VPN, or just wait the 6 hours per 5 GB (or get premium).
