    OfflineList

    [​IMG]


    The first OfflineList dat for Wii Virtual Console releases is released by me. It's a database of dumped Virtual Console games in wad-format.

    WiiWare-titles are not included. I will be making another dat for them.

    The dat is not yet complete (36 releases are included) but I will work hard to make a complete dat of all of the 190 releases and keep it updated.

    Yes, it is [​IMG] I am a collector myself. I was waiting for ADVANsCEne to release a list such as this one, but it's taken so long that I decided to create my own one [​IMG]

    Thank you for your work ^^
    I'm waiting for the advanscene too, (I even posted a message ont their forum), but I wished a NDScrc for VC and Wiiware (both separated) and they are making a list with all wii release in one dat.
    The admin said maybe he will separate them later.

    offlinelist is only for collection purpose or can it scan and rename the file inside the zip too ?
    Anyway, I'll take it [​IMG]

    Thank you, I will leave comments if I find anything usefull to add or change -_^

    edit :
    oh I see it's only the xml.
    I don't know offlinelist very well, I'll try it [​IMG]


    Edit2 :
    I wanted to make a NDScrc compatible dat, but I don't have time to maintain the list.
    I think the renaming feature of NDScrc is great (better?) because the user can choose the renaming string he wants.

    Your xml is working with NDScrc, but some data is not shown (console name instead of VC number)

    how do you create the list ?
    do you edit the xml manually ?
    You made a lot of work already, even the pictures and the autoupdate feature.

    Maybe we could make a dat working both with offlinelist and NDScrc.
    maybe I could take some time to help you.


    Edit :
    It's working fine with NDScrc in GBAmode !!
    the only problem is having the pictures cropped a little. and it revert the updateURL and the xml file back to GBA from Advanscene.
    Just put the URL and the xml name back before updating and renaming.
    Thanks for this list.

    Looks like i don't have the presure to release a dat at ADVANsCEne anymore [​IMG] , great work [​IMG] , it is difficult to get all crc32 for the Wii releases.
    By the way if we ever going to make one it isn't going to be numbered so it will be different

    I can't wait to see what you made. Finding the CRC values is indeed troublesome. To be honest, some of them were just copied from ADVANsCEne [​IMG] I'll see if I can find some people which have all these releases to help me with the CRC values.

    I just rolled out the first update. Wave Race 64 was listed as a NES-game. I changed it to N64, and updated the version number. It updated flawlessly here, let me know if it works for people who had the old version installed.

    Btw, the download link points to the new version as well.

    I repost it here. I just edited my previous post.

    Your dat is working fine with NDScrc in GBAmode [​IMG]
    no need to convert it.

    the only problem is having the pictures cropped a little. And the program revert the updateURL and the xml file back to GBA URL & dat from Advanscene.
    Just put the URL name back before updating and renaming.

    Thanks again [​IMG]

    edit :
    in fact, it's not working [​IMG]
    the xml is read, but the roms are not detected (I suppose the program is looking for .gba file type only).
    I will use Offlinelist then.

    I actually made a test dat before (numbered) but it's not updated anymore as i removed the numbers from the db, you can have a look at it here (working with pics and so)
    http://www.advanscene.com/offline/datas/ADVANsCEne_VC.zip

    I know that our dat works and renames zipfiles (works only with ziped files) with NDScrc in NDS mode with correct updateURL (no revert) so it should work with this dat to, just crooped pics but that can always be fixed with the size of them

    You can also make icons for the different console systems and nfo for download [​IMG] i think i will test that a little

    I would like to update it, but I can't seem to get hold of the files...

    If someone else wants the files, send me a PM. I can provide the xml-file and the pictures used in the DAT. If someone has a list of CRC-numbers, that would really help too; I could update the DAT myself. I someone wants to update it but doesn't have hosting, I can keep hosting it.

    Email me at USERNAME at gmail.com and I'll send you some filenames and CRCs, you can update dat and we can then ask for other users to do the same. We'll soon have a better dat file and then we might see some people posting DAT-checked files on usenet and the like [​IMG]

    If you are going to update this then I think I will do a Wiiware DAT.

    Sorry, I didn't watch this topic in the past few days.

    I will contact Methanoid for some CRC-numbers, and if he can help me I will update the DAT [​IMG] I could also make a WiiWare-dat later, I've already started it actually.

    I will not update the DAT if I haven't got the CRC-number of the next release, as it won't make any sense.

    I can fix that, it shouldn't be too hard.

    You dont need the latest release CRC - you need to fill in the missing ones like the 70 odd I've given you. Then people will start to use the DAT and then people will help fill the gaps in.

    I've done a WiiWare DAT myself already. Its in the UserSubmittedNews forum
