Is there a DAT file for unheadered (.unh) NES ROMs?
Thank you

The dat file it's the same as the headered, if you want the unheadered set you simply don't use the header skipper, by default the extension it's .nes, but since some emulators don't support unheader sets and for that reason some people rename those files to .bin or .unh

Why isnt thier a dat to indicate that? Where is the mythical header skipper and how is it used vs rom managers?

Also Why oh Why do some spefic dats like Nes Headered, Unheadered ect, not indicate to romvault what scan mode should be set, (merge, nothing, split ect..) or indeed what rom manager the dats are supposed to be used with? This destroys the hard work of the dat maintainers due to incorrect or false scan and fixing result, incorrect usage ect... creates confusion and distrust of the dats.. Why? This is a simple problem to fix? Provide a Sticky Post regarding best use and futher detail on usage.. Its so annoying keep seeing all the hard work being fubared by absent basic guidence/usage.
