OK. As of right now Hyperspin-ready sets for SegaCD, GC, and DC can all be found from a very obvious place.

Secondly, I have a DAT file for PSX (USA) Complete. Should be able to use this with CLRMamePRO to correctly rename your PSX set!

The filename has been intact from source so you could find the torrent for the set (should you know where to find it)

or would like to check against your current set and it should rename it properly. This includes USA only.

The torrent set this goes with is 454.59 GB.

Direct Download link for PSX Dat/Cue: http://bit.ly/1pBcfAW

Also, to boot here is the MAME .154 x86/x64 (nonag+extras): http://bit.ly/1pqki2T

Password for both files is: lbiza7331

I havent tested this but will soon when I get a chance. I am not responsible for messed up filenames should you

screw it up with this dat file. SO I would suggest making a BACKUP of your existing set before attemping to

do any file renaming.Also includes the .cue for each game. I am also not taking credit for compiling this DAT/CUE

or torrent this is associated with.

I found this thread while searching for the best way to rename my psx set. I just wanted to add that while don's tools is slow, it appears to be working rather well. This is a pretty old post, and its 2016 now, so im unsure whether there has been progress and stability improvements with don's tools, but im about 16 hours in renaming my entire psx set, which had roughly 40%  mis-named archives. Its a little over half way done, and its been nice enough to extract the contents, then repackage them as 7z's (a lot were .rar's) in a new dir. Will follow up to state whether it correctly named everything, but its looking like its naming everything correctly! If i dont follow up it means don's renaming tool worked great for renaming my whole psx set.

Even though i selected 'move' instead of 'copy' it still extracts and then recompresses the entire set, so it takes a lot of time for a full cd-based set.

      Hello all, 
      Can anyone help me and point me in the right direction where I might be able to download myself an up to date
      Commodore Amiga XML that is populated with the year, genre etc, of each game? I have tried Hyperlist and many other sites but I can't seem
      to find anything. Many thanks in advance!

      Some of stuff you can do
      create hyperspin or nointro dat from rom folder
      create mamlist.xml from rom folder
      copy roms listed in nointro or any supported xml\dat\xml format to desired rom folder
      rename your roms from any supported xml\dat\txt file and copy them to desired folder
      merge two supported xml\dat\txt file even info will be merged
      copy rom media file with game list from compatible xml\dat\txt
      much more
      compatible format are
      nonintrodat.dat (parent\clone xml) or standard 
      hyperspin.xml(there is custom one,you can generate one as hyperspin_retrofe.xml)
      retrofe_include.txt (simple txt file with rom names)
      mameinfo.dat (only works in extract function)
      mamehistory.dat (only works in extract function)

      So What is this?
      convert from compatible xml\txt\dat game database format to xml\txt\dat game database,
      extract story files from gamelist.xml mamhistory.dat or mameinfo.dat
      combine or merge two compatible xml\txt\dat and get one file with updated games and info
      copy rom listed in compatible xml\dat\txt from source rom folder to desired folder\rename and crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files
      scan and create xml\dat\txt from your roms folder,crc32 supported,crc32 work with zip and none zip files 

      Tested on windows 10 x64,should run on any windows +7 os (might run on win xp but not tested) 
      you 'll need at least one xml\txt\dat compatible file,check below in Note section
      How to use
      Simply choose the function from drop menu,click on input\output buttons,choose file type from filter drop menu in openfiledialog window,remember always provide the right file type,hyperspin need hyperspin file,nointro.dat need nointro dat file .......
      click doi it
      combine function explained:
      this tool is created to merge info from compatible xml dat xml database format.xml based on name or crc tag,the result is xml\txt\dat file with updated info added roms name and info from both file
      Associate function explained:
       associate function,input1 button should be any compatible xml\txt\dat,mediaroot should be the root folder of your rom media,example: nes media folder contain folders like snaps,title,manual,video snaps ... etc,this function will copy these media according to the name(or crc) in input1 source file
      Some Tips:
      Combine Nointro.dat+gamelist.xml=>resultfile saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml
      combine resultfile.xml+hyperspin.xml with rating tag=>final_result.xml saved as hyperspin_retrofe.xml
      put the final_result.xml in RetroFE\meta\hyperlist rename it to your prefered system,make sure the name is matching the collection name in retrofe collectio dir
      delete meta.db from retrofe dir
      launch retrofe and have fun 
      Important don't choose the wrong file always feed the right one check compatible file format above for more info
      the combine function priorties the info from input1 button when using crc as comparation,that means if you have the same game but the name in the first is different from the second input file,the first will be considered
      how to get gamelist.xml
      use scraper to get gamelist.xml for your prefered system(mame,sega,snes...) can be found https://github.com/retropie/retropie-setup/wiki/scraper
      put scraper inside your roms folder,ru cmd or use bat(recommended) put these commands:
      scraper.exe -add_not_found -console_src="gdb" -use_filename=true -download_images=false -no_thumb 
       now copy the generated gamelist.xml file from your rom folder to the program folder

      Hey Guys,
      I'm rather new to Hyperspin but I have been sucessful in adding systems and roms for the most part. I have run into a problem recently in regards to database xml files. So when I'm on the homescreen where the consoles are on the wheel, when I click a certain console it will not load. I click and it goes black for  quick second and returns to the homescreen. Thats in indication that the database is present but it will not load the game list for some reason. I have the database xml in the appropriate folder as well as the roms, media and emulators installed. Still no sucess in loading the Playstation or Dreamcast consoles. 
      On another note there are instances where I'm able to click the colsole and it loads a few games on the list but not all. I have the roms installed in the appropriate folder but hyperspin is only displaying a few on the list. The database xml that is for the console has all the games listed but when I open the colsole in hypersin the list of games is limited to a few. 
      If someone has had a similar issue or could give assistance it would greatly be appreciated.
