AntoPisa tends to do a lot of PNGCrush/ZipMax runs or similar to shrink things as much as possible, runs things through 7z instead of WinRAR or other compressors, I've even seen TorrentZipped, plus he often adds ZIP comments - this all changes checksums inside AND outside of ZIP files versus other "original" sources.

Also, and this is probably another reason - is current with 0.172 and has seen a ton of changes in the last week, ProgettoSnaps is current as of 0.171 still. He should be current with 0.172 later, but not right this second. And yes I think it's something like eight or more artwork sets different since the last time AntoPisa updated his own MESS artwork page at ProgettoSnaps.

Plus IDK if he's still keeping MESS artwork and MAME artwork on separate DATs, but he may not be.

In short, working together to update the MESS Artwork page has had its ups and downs as we tried to synchronize our workflow. Mostly positive tho, we eventually found a common ground

It would not surprise me that the DAT files have got out of sync.

But I'll give the current DAT file a check through again. I can at least confirm the artwork DAT verifies the artworks.

Hope this helps, AntoPisa!
