To elaborate on the DAT file dual name issue

I point ClrMAME WWW mode to "", which contains "MESS_progetto-SNAPS.xml". This file lists two DATs of interest:

  • "pS_MESS_Snap_20150420_(cm).zip", which contains "pS_MESS_Snap_20150420_(cm).dat"
  • "pS_MESS_Snaps_20150420_(cm).zip", which contains "pS_MESS_Snaps_20150420_(cm).dat"

Unfortunately, bot DAT files start with the following header:
name progetto-SNAPS - MESS Snaps /name

ClrMAME does not like two DAT file with the same name in two areas:

  1. It does not display them well in the DAT list
  2. It confuses the update mechanism for the WWW mode (it thinks one is an update for the other)

Should the first one have the header:
name progetto-SNAPS - MESS Snap /name

Oh, by the way, the MESS Devices DAT is out of sync with the CabDevs and AllDats DATs. I believe that the Devices DAT has older entries?
