Thanks. But once again the database is invalid. Please people, it's nice to help but try to be more careful.

How to check xml validity:

- The quick way but not very informative : open xml file in Firefox or any web browser.

- With xml tools (recommended) :
* xmllint
xmllint AMSTRAD_GX4000.xml
* XMLStarlet
xmlstarlet val -e -s AMSTRAD_GX4000.xml

See the output:
AMSTRAD_GX4000.xml:2226: parser error : Opening and ending tag mismatch: developer line 2215 and game

Indeed, there are standards for a long time or else preservation would be a big mess. Well, the fact there are still at least 2 main filenaming is problematic.
And there's also the file's signature. Here for performance among other reasons, crcs and 'serial' headers for CD roms. Others rom managers are using md5 and sha1 now. Serials have been used for Snes too but off course it doesn't always work without a header in rom.

Anyway, as said the convention for filenaming used here is No-Intro(minus country flags etc) when possible. It covers most of the known 8/16 bits consoles.
For CD based, it's more complicated. Tosec was used but quite incomplete(seems better now). Redump is a reference nowadays.
For less known consoles and some computers it can be anything. Dedicated websites or whatever...
The main source was screenscraper.fr but a dozen of other databases too.

Regarding illegal characters. 2 main concerns. The OS and the filesystem.
Windows:
<>:"/\|?*
Unix:
/
There are also reserved names and other specifities on Windows(might also depend on version). No idea about Mac possible peculiarity. The Wii is Unix like.
cf. https://docs.microsoft.com/en-us/windows/win32/fileio/naming-a-file
The filesystem may have restrictions too. The most common here is fat32. No case sensitivity for example.

The GameID is screenscraper.fr filled with A letters. I've made it this way to have a fixed length string. Filling with A letter was post data creation and I forgot to rename the images.
Perhaps the initial commit may have helped to understand how this stuff work:
https://github.com/Wiimpathy/WiiFlow_Lite/commit/09525023a268a3bb3dfd2df2ad3c75da442039ab

The snaphots/carts must be named with the <game name= value found in xml or with the full GameID. The <title> isn't used and that's why you must be very careful when you rename the game name in xml. Not sure why some of your images don't appear. Can you give example?

Here are a few remarks about data changes:

C64D
=====
C64D.xml is invalid. The & character in <title>Zeros & Ones</title>.
It's not really an issue in WiiFlow but it's best to have clean files. You have to escape this character. Main escaped characters :
Code:
"   &quot;
'   &apos;
<   &lt;
>   &gt;
&   &amp;
WiiFlow will translate them back again.

SUPERNES
=========

- Flintstones - The Treasure of Sierra Madrock, The --> Flintstones, The - The Treasure of Sierra Madrock (No-Intro name in .ini and .xml)
- Captain Tsubasa 3 - Koutei no Chousen --> Captain Tsubasa III - Koutei no Chousen
- F1 ROC II - Race of Champions --> F1-ROC II - Race of Champions
- Trials of Mana --> Seiken Densetsu 3 (officially never released in SuperNes era. Seiken Densetsu 3 was japanese exclusive. But the Press before US cancel was talking of Secret of Mana 2. Later with the fan translations it was also called that way with original jap name as subtitle. Trials of Mana only came recently for the Switch)

I haven't checked more than that. At this point, filling the data with script or manually should at least refer to the No-Intro dats if possible.
https://github.com/libretro/libretro-database/tree/master/metadat/no-intro

By the way, the platform.ini file isn't up to date. It doesn't contain AMSTRAD_GX4000 for example. I completely lost rack of it but it seems the latest one can be found here:
https://gbatemp.net/threads/the-great-quest-for-wiiflow-plugins-tm-a-call-for-adventurers.563575/

Pfiou, sorry for this long post.
One more thing: i haven't even figured out how to display cart images in WFL, so i'm not touching cart disks unless i find a good reason to.

No idea? It might depend on the theme you're using. I haven't followed WiiFlow dev recently. You should ask in the WiiFlow Lite thread maybe.

I was just pointing it out in case anyone was hoping it would try to do work on the cart disks, cuz... I'm not. I'll ask around about how to display the cart disks (as well as the summaries i keep seeing whnever i fuck around with a database .xml)

I genuinely dont know if i'll be able to handle fixing all the changes i made to the database to be in line with the already-established standards @[email protected] it seems like a lot of work and while that on its own isn't a huge deal, what is a problem is the frustration of going through ALLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLLL my ROMs again to make sure the database links up and everything.

Does anyone feel responsible for collecting the files, maintaining and distributing them as an archive/package? There are no new download links in the first post of the thread.

So i have a question: how would one go about matching entries on screenscraper.fr with nointro entries, in an automated fashion? Would i have to rely on some form of fuzzy matching with handling of special characters?
Yeah, fuzzy matching. Checking file's signature(crc sha1...) may help with false results too.

Can you point 1 magic number to 2 different database? Referring specifically to SUPERNES and SUPERNES_HACKS.

Edit: Or can I put them in the "Combined" section?

1 magic number to 2 different database? No. only one database can be loaded at a time.
Yeah, that's what I thought... guessing the only way to make use of the SUPERNES_HACKS database is to merge it with SUPERNES database.. unless of course you run all you're hacks through a different plugin, or dummy plugin. Why haven't these been previously merged lol.

These last couple days i've been updating/adding to my SNES hacks. Im curious of what everyone has as thier must have/best hacks. I haven't played many of what i have but Ill gather a text of what i have and post tomorrow.

The 2 that stand out immediately for me are Super Ghouls & Ghosts and Super Castlevania IV restoration patches.

Good idea about a list. Most of mine are straight up English translations but I've recently fell down a rabbit hole of more extreme hacks that change the games dramatically.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/6mxbabv95cnznm8/SNES+Data.7z/file So i have done my best to "update" the SNES database files. I have tried my best to separate out pirate carts and romhacks from the rest of the database by putting them at the end, but it's really not perfect in that regard. However, it should have most of the ROMhacks that are on MarioCube as well as those featured in ToddOfWar420's new coverset. I took new gameID numbers from pages on romhacking.net, smwcentral, metroidconstruction, or i used the last 6 digits of the SHA-1 of the zip file of the ROM. So it's not perfectly consistent, but it's extremely functional. I tried to maximize the number of snapshots and cart-disks available too using scraping tools, though i think someone with more knowledge than me should confirm the cart_disk files are Correct. The snapshots i can verify though.

As for what's missing, i collated some lists using scripts.

E: special tee shot (1992 prototype) is missing a snapshot.
E: super star force is missing a snapshot.

The python scripts ive made for analyzing libraries has been quite useful. Anyway, I'm crossposting this to the wiiflow plugins thread and the cover collection thread.

Expect a whole new Satellaview database soon, too. No cart_disks for that obviously, but that's obvious.

https://www.mediafire.com/file/6mxbabv95cnznm8/SNES+Data.7z/file So i have done my best to "update" the SNES database files. I have tried my best to separate out pirate carts and romhacks from the rest of the database by putting them at the end, but it's really not perfect in that regard. However, it should have most of the ROMhacks that are on MarioCube as well as those featured in ToddOfWar420's new coverset. I took new gameID numbers from pages on romhacking.net, smwcentral, metroidconstruction, or i used the last 6 digits of the SHA-1 of the zip file of the ROM. So it's not perfectly consistent, but it's extremely functional. I tried to maximize the number of snapshots and cart-disks available too using scraping tools, though i think someone with more knowledge than me should confirm the cart_disk files are Correct. The snapshots i can verify though.

As for what's missing, i collated some lists using scripts.

Missing snapshots:


Missing cart_disks (many of these probably don't have images. But please do double check the cart_disks I added)


Finally, here's what's missing from database entries in SUPERNES.xml

I only found 91 cart_disk
