HDD Versions on Non-Working CHD Games?
02/19/17 11:41 PM


I inquire, as since preservation is one of the big end goals, is there any information on the revision of any HDDs in MAME where the game is currently unemulated? [Like Rush 2049 for instance] Or is it one of those unknowns until the game is finally in a bootable state and information gleamed from it at that point?

With more and more of these replacement drives coming up, figured I would put that through in case of even the most minimal of hope, and in case someone who is on the side of preserving goes "Oh, they have this version in MAME but it won't go past booting. Well I have this version, I might as well dump it so it can be added one day" without everyone trying to preserve HDD's and finding out they're all the same Versions sitting unemulated [Though I guess the bonus is, if the one in MAME is for some reason screwy, a second fresh copy may prove to be a saving grace]
