Sony - conflicts

See original GitHub issue

The redump dat set has hashes for the bin and cue files however these aren’t used by retroarch to match the roms?

<game name="Threads of Fate (USA)">
     <description>Threads of Fate (USA)</description>
     <rom name="Threads of Fate (USA).cue" size="87" crc="009cfc2e" md5="33dfd831427e04229f0d307f4f51a39c" sha1="c055fc0410717a3615c3566b057a729c94215369"/>
     <rom name="Threads of Fate (USA).bin" size="357454608" crc="59b2f8a3" md5="bf49e5e7a09acc46625b5ced33dd45f5" sha1="375e4a344c4feef969bef6042ff1f90e350fa5d5"/>
 <game name="Urban Chaos (USA)">

     <rom name="Urban Chaos (USA).cue" size="83" crc="7632573f" md5="a9fa97c60f774d9b90aae4aaa04b17fd" sha1="6effedb519572cd1bf55380c4aeebbd8c1b5a3e1"/>
     <rom name="Urban Chaos (USA).bin" size="616096992" crc="239c0746" md5="c9b4e03de8dd5c1fb799fc56e5cf031a" sha1="f6608f6ec4128366161f1aa99c6a8b69d76150fe"/>

retroarch seems only to index the cue files and doesn’t hash them, this has a conflicts e.g. Urban Chaos

./Threads of Fate (USA).cue
Threads of Fate (USA)
Sony -

./Urban Chaos (USA).cue
Threads of Fate (USA)
Sony -

Is this due to ‘Threads of Fate’ and ‘Urban Chaos’ having the same serial in the dat? - PlayStation.dat#L49792

This is my output from attempting to read the serials, I’m unsure of an intended method but this seems to show that the serials are close enough to conflict?

strings ./Threads\ of\ Fate\ \(USA\).bin | grep -i slus-01019
strings ./Urban\ Chaos\ \(USA\).bin | grep -i slus-01019 
PLAYSTATION                     SLUS-01019                      

Sorry if this is intended functionality of the database

Edit: i dowloaded it and you’re right. Apparently there was a misprint on one of these games and the serial is the same in the executable. I think this will need to be differentiated differently.

The ‘serial’ for urban chaos on the redump page is either a correction to what was intended or a error.

I suggest using the ‘label’ if you detect that serial and assign the right one to Urban Chaos. Threads of Fate has ‘DEWPRISM’ and Urban Chaos has ‘SLUS-01019’ so something like

if serial == 'SLUS-01019' and serial == label:
    serial = 'SLUS-01091' //urban chaos misprint.

If indeed it’s urban chaos that is wrong.

edit: I think it is. I just updated my script to id serials from games too (romhacking update pending).

This has to be changed on the Retroarch serial scanner code to work (and assuming that has access to the label), not the DAT file.

When running, RetroArch should report the serial that was found. Mind posting that? Another thing you could do is create a post on the Redump forums. We roll with what they provide.

In the mean time, I’m going to close this one.
