Generator?
« on: November 24, 2005, 06:53:39 am »
I just noticed this thing called Generator, according to the page it's something to help with FBA??

Is it capable of working with MAME?
Does it do more than neogeo?

Can it determine what decoding code is needed with a rom by itself? Will it write the code?

I've always done these things by hand, and I don't mind it, but if this tool helps with some of the obscure matters it would be good.

Can someone explain it to me, thanks!

The generator helps with some very basic things like filling out the basic information of a driver, like CRC, Size, and Name information.

It doesn't automatically get this information from .zip, but it can process mame, nebula, and fba driver information to automatically fill in a large portion of it.

It also doesn't generate any special per-game fixes (no P decryption, no S decryption, etc.)

Just download it and give it a try, it's not perfect, and won't do everything, but it can save you quite a bit of time. :)
