Search for duplicates

  • Filter duplicate Roms on (button): Allows you to search for duplicate Roms (duplicates) according to 2 modes.
Since beta 1914, duplicate search no longer considers multidisk files with disk 1/disk 2…/tape 1/tape 2… as duplicates. See the multi_part.txt file located in %appdata%\Nexouille Soft\arrm\database\multi_part.txt)
disc|disk|file|part|side|tape|track|128k|64k|48k|16k| module|level
  • Name : Searches for Roms containing the name of another Rom in the name of the game. Useful if you have clones (different rom file) but the game name is the same. Do this after the game has been scraped, as the game names will be accurate.

Example: 'Speedball (Europe) (Mirrorsoft).zip' and 'Speedball (Europe) (Virgin).zip' roms will return the same game name (Speedball).
On the other hand '007 - A View to a Kill [Part 1 Of 4]' and '007 - A View to a Kill [Part 2 Of 4]' will not be considered as duplicates.

  • File : Search for Roms containing in the filename part of the filename of another Rom. Example: “Back to the Future Part II (Europe).zip” and “Back to the Future Part III” (Europe).zip
Remember to delete the filter by clicking on 'No filter' after use.
