Yes, it needs a torrent release (with torrent hash).

I will share the games with eMule.
I have created some 'emulecollection' by letters.
search for 'gamebase pc freeware'.
I don't want to create a torrent since it takes up twice the space, one the torrent and another where I make changes...
you can send me messages by eMule...

I'd reconsider doing torrents or some other alternative to emule, it's ancient and insecure.

Hello, I share the games in a torrent.
in the !dos folder were all the eXoDOS (7200) games converted to 7z and part of the Total DOS Collection #19 (TDC) also converted to 7z, but I deleted them because I did everything quickly with the program called PeaZIP, and of course , it can't be done like this because I should do it 1 to 1 and put the .bat file in each one, etc... in short, I deleted it and the folder is empty.
We'll see if I'll do it 1 by 1 or that... it takes a long time..., and also the PaeZIP program gave errors in quite a few files, especially in the TDC... (does anyone know how to do so that it doesn't give errors when decompressing?)...
the !OpenBOR folder is 54gb but there are only 2 or 3 games linked in the gamebase..., there is that :)
the !flash folder is more than 110gb but there are very few linked games..., and well..., there is that...
This gamebase is crazy, I'm crazy. keep in mind that the torrent is 809gb. Of course, the idea was to put everything there... everything that is free, that is, everything from those freeware game pages like freegame.cz, caiman.us, acidplay, etc, etc, etc...
and then indiedb and moddb, gamejolt, itch.io, etc, etc, etc...
and of course flash everything you can, msdos, openbor, mugen, etc...
Of course, and all that, well, I don't know how much I would occupy... it's f*** crazy... let's see... for that many years of work are needed, I won't live that long... maybe God will come and destroy everything (games, gamebases, movies, songs and books)...
And what do I know, maybe when you're reading this, well... I'm already dead... :)
Total, we'll see what will happen...
For now, here I leave the torrent with the work so far for those who want to download it, but as I say, it is in a very incomplete phase...
Cheers...

GameBase contains and uses 7z to unpack, so i don't understand why you need to use another external ZIP program.
maybe peazip can't handle the more advanced 7z compression methods.
I can say with confidence, the TDC wasn't packed and released using peazip.
unpack errors can occur if the zip file has comments in the header or text tagged to the end of the file.
*use hex editor to check and remove it.

can you unpack a problem game file without error manually.
using 7z or winrar?.
if not, i would say corrupt or incomplete file from torrent source.

the eXoDOS & TDC collections are in zip format. i use PeaZIP to convert all to 7z in 1 strike, because in 7z the size is substantly smaller. the process is automatic, but in some files when unpacking it gave some errors, and there are games that some files are packed in 7z with 0 bytes.
PeaZIP has many options but i can't handle with them... i don't understand them...
if i unpack the game that PeaZIP gave errors individually without PeaZIP, it give me no errors... maybe is better not to use PeaZIP and do the job 1 by 1 but in this way is needed a very long time...
do u know how to setup peazip to when unpacking it give no errors ?
supposing i convert all to 7z is not well because i still must unpack all again 1 by 1 and put the bat file... this is a nonsense... i was doing this in a hurry to have all that games on the gamebase in a very few time...
as data:
the 7200 games of eXoDOS are 491gb in zip and were 406gb in 7z untouched (saved: 85gb!)
Super Stardust: in eXoDOS: zip of 530mb
Super Stardust: in my gamebase: 7z of 112mb (wavs converted to ogg)
in eXoDOS maybe as collector is better, there are games of a few mb with a 500mb iso.
if converting all to 7z and wavs to ogg's maybe eXoDOS will be about 300gb... i don't know how many images are with audio tracks...
cheers...

to batch convert ZIP to 7z.
use 7z (not peazip) via command line.

make dir c:\zipgames\
copy all your zips for conversion to that folder.

copy 7z.exe and 7z.dll from the latest 7z install, to the same c:\zipgames\ folder.

save this code as "zip27z.bat"
put it in the c:\zipgames\ folder
run the batch file.

Code: Select all

for %%F in (*.zip) do ( "C:\zipgames\7z.exe" x -y -o"%%F_tmp" "%%F" * & pushd %%F_tmp & "C:\zipgames\7z.exe" a -y -r -t7z ..\"%%~nF".7z * & popd & rmdir /s /q "%%F_tmp" )
*test with a few game zips before doing 1000's.
lot's of large files will take a very long time to convert.

delete all the duplicate zip files after conversion manually.
