Two games that will not be excepted in Rom Browser
« on: August 23, 2017, 12:25:00 AM »
Two recent entries have been a little perplexing for me to say the least.

Conker's Bad Fur Day (U) (Debug Version) Country code is off the chart so as a result shows up as a bad rom in the Rom Browser

Code: [Select]
[7D1FA66C-075977A2-C:FFFFFFAA]
Good Name=Conker's Bad Fur Day (U) (Debug Version)
Internal Name="8i':_T.0n5U7
RDRAM Size=4
Counter Factor=2
Save Type=16kbit Eeprom
CPU Type=Recompiler
Self-modifying code Method=Protected Memory
Reg Cache=Yes
Use TLB=Yes
Use Large Buffer=Yes
Linking=Off
Status=Unsupported
Plugin Note=
Delay SI=No
SP Hack=No
Core Note=unknown country, failed to open mempak
Clear Frame=2
Culling=1
Self Texture=0
Primary Frame Buffer=0
Emulate Clear=1
Resolution Width=-1
Resolution Height=-1
Audio Signal=No
Delay RDP=No
Delay RSP=No
Emulate AI=No

For it to show up in the browser, I havve had to do this, but any changes to Core or ~Plugin Notes need to be done to both entries

Code: [Select]
[7D1FA66C-075977A2-C:AA]
Good Name=Conker's Bad Fur Day (U) (Debug Version)
Status=Unsupported
Core Note=unknown country, failed to open mempak

[7D1FA66C-075977A2-C:FFFFFFAA]
Internal Name="8i':_T.0n5U7
RDRAM Size=4
Counter Factor=2
Save Type=16kbit Eeprom
CPU Type=Recompiler
Self-modifying code Method=Protected Memory

Delay RSP=No
Emulate AI=No
Audio Signal=No
SP Hack=No
Use Large Buffer=Yes
Linking=Global
Status=Unsupported
Core Note=unknown country, failed to open mempak
Plugin Note=

Perfect Dark (U) (Debug Version) is another Country code that is off the chart so as a result shows up as a bad rom in the Rom Browser

Code: [Select]
[3EC36C75-F03048F1-C:FFFFFFF9]
Good Name=Perfect Dark (U) (Debug Version)
Internal Name=g3|8N8C`=nTH57
RDRAM Size=8
Counter Factor=2
Save Type=16kbit Eeprom
CPU Type=Recompiler
Self-modifying code Method=Protected Memory
Reg Cache=Yes
Use TLB=Yes
Use Large Buffer=Yes
Linking=Off
Status=Unsupported
Core Note=unknown country
Plugin Note=
Delay SI=No
SP Hack=No
Clear Frame=2
Self Texture=0
Primary Frame Buffer=0
Resolution Width=-1
Resolution Height=-1
Culling=1
Emulate Clear=0
Audio Signal=No
Delay RDP=No
Delay RSP=No
Emulate AI=No

but again, for it to show up in the browser, I have had to do exactly the same as Conkers Debug, with any changes to Core or Plugin Notes needing to be done to both entries

Code: [Select]
[3EC36C75-F03048F1-C:F9]
Good Name=Perfect Dark (U) (Debug Version)
Status=Unsupported
Core Note=unknown country
Plugin Note=

Strange, the 2 characters should be all that's needed. AA or F9 respectively.
I'll have to look at the code to see if it's being loaded in a weird way elsewhere.

This is why I'm so adamant about creating standardized functions for these things. I just don't have time to do the rewrites right now.  :(

--Edit--
Took a look deeper and didn't see any reason why it wouldn't work. I'll take a better look Sunday as it seems that's the only day I can program.

Ok, got home a bit early from work and took a look.
This will be fixed whenever I do the rewrite for rom tools.

There's just a lack of a standard access to certain things, country code being one of them.
For some reason rom settings is using FFFFFFAA while everything else is using AA.
Heck I saw that in Rom Information too I think... too confuddled to check right now.
