Last night I finally did something I've been wanting to do for years... I cleaned up my SPC collection. Whenever I hop on the SNESmusic torrent, I copy the old directory to a new location, so that my files can maintain their original file date (when they were first downloaded. As a torrent, these files are edited, even if they don't need to be). Using Beyond Compare and Duplicate Files Finder, I was able to free up over 500 MB... I've been copying my SPC folder pretty much since 2005, so I had a lot of duplicate SPCs. Now, although I still have many duplicates, I've been able to those down to a manageable number. The worst part about it is that I stayed up until about 9 am working on it... Yay @ me for having SPC sets that date back to 2003 with no modification (excluding the removal of the EXE header).

Obviously, not many people care about this. But I like my file dates, so I'm willing to put up the HDD space (or the work to remove duplicates) to maintain them. Mouser X over and out.

I have a massive SPC folder organized very similar to your doings with some rare SPCs as well.

The question is do you use the most accurate SPC player?

I download only the games in which I'm interested.

"Second, and more esoteric, serious can imply substance, a window onto the underlying structure of a thing. This use may be limited to informal discourse; a sentiment like dude, that is a serious cheesecake implies that the specimen presented offers a fundamental insight into the nature, even the apotheosis of the thing in general." - Ian Bogost, Persuasive Games p58.

I set up Famicom Disk System and played Doki Doki Panic beating it with Mama!

I cracked up on reading it, yeah.

Nensondubois, cool cool! :)

If only FCEUGX (Wii) supported switching sides of a Famicom disc image so I could play that game on my TV! At least I don't think it does yet...

I got reaaaally bored waiting for some code to compile.

Awesome. You know I've never actually logged into this forum? Didn't think you could... :P
