 [b] in NDS dat release names? Plus suggestion

I haven't updated to the latest NDS dat for about 2 weeks or so, and I noticed that a bunch of titles have [b] appended to it. What does it represent? Anyway to create a dat without it?

Also, may I suggest adding a feature to the Dat-o-Matic for numbered releases? I would like to choose a numbered range in the dat, rather than having the complete dat. I archive the releases onto DVD, so I don't have a reason to have clrmamepro scan all the older releases. I currently manually just edit the dat to remove the old releases.

Thanks for all the hard work!

[b] = bad dump. I you want to remove it, after downloading the DAT just open it on a text editor and perform a find & replace all operation.

If old files are in a separate DVD, why do you need to remove old entries in order to scan new files?

[b] = bad dump. I you want to remove it, redump it and send us information :P

Thanks guys! The reason I remove the older releases that aren't in my hard drive is because clrmamepro lists those missing releases. With them gone, I don't have to scroll all the way down just to see the relevant releases. That, and it also takes a few extra seconds just to list them as missing, which happen to account for at least 90% of the total releases.

Try the following:

Before running the Scan, right-click on the results pane and check "View->Hide Fully-Missing Sets". Then proceed with the scan.
