View Full Version : Confused by GoodUtilities

I'm getting really confused using the GoodUtilities. I've downloaded what are claimed to be complete romsets from binary newsgroups for SNES, SMS, NES and Genesis.

I expected to be missing a few files because newsgroups aren't perfect but when I do "goodsnes list" for example I get three file outputs. The first is the sneshave.txt, the second is snesmiss.txt and the thrid is snesdupesg.txt.

The thing that confuses me is that, if I look in sneshave.txt I get the following...

You have 10694 of 11337 known Nintendo Super NES/Famicom ROMS (V2.04)

So if I have 10694 roms out of 11337 that means I should be missing 694 roms right? So why when I look in snesmiss.txt does it say...

You are missing 217 of 10911 known Nintendo Super NES/Famicom ROMS (V2.04)

Not only does it say that I'm only missing 217 roms. It also says that now there's 10911 roms instead of 11337. What's going on? It's like this with all the GoodUtilities as far as I can see.

Also, is there any way to get GoodSNES and the rest to automatically get rid of the duplicates because I shouldn't need them should I?
