Default Looking for a ROM Management tool

So, hypothetically, let's say that I have a SNES GoodSet, because I legally own every version of every SNES game ever produced. They're in 7z archives by ROM name, but each archive contains all localizations of that ROM (U, E, J, etc.) as well as every version of it that has been dumped. Let's say that all I want is the (U) [!] version of each ROM in each set. How would I go about extracting, or otherwise getting only that one single ROM out of the archives? I assume there's already some tool available for doing this, and I assume someone here knows of it.

Thanks.

I know this might be a bit more messy, but couldn't you extract them all to their own sub-directory, search for the ones you want (type (u) [!]) select the files, copy them to their own, seperate directory, and then delete all of the original folders? I'm not sure if a program will do that (especially for 7zip) but you might be able to find a batch file or script or something to run.

Some frontends have GoodMerged support and can let you play individual games from 7z files:

http://quickplay.sourceforge.net/
http://www.gameex.net/Home/tabid/36/Default.aspx (needs registration)

Other than that, it sounds like a sufficiently powerful batch 7z/multiple extractor tool would be the only option.

Yeah, but the problem is they're for an emulator that has 7zip support, but it just defaults to the first file in the archive (by name), which is usually the E locale.

Just did some testing, and it looks like the 7-zip command line tool might be able to do what you need. It supports wildcards ...

7z [command] [archive_name] [file_names]

Something like 7z e *.7z *(u)*.* should extract only the (u) roms from all the 7zs in the directory.

It comes with the GUI version: http://www.7-zip.org/download.html

What I did was get the no-intro dats and use those to weed out the garbage. Extract goodset, rezip individual files, run this through CLRMamePro using said dats.
