DESCRIPTION

dumpgame extracts rom set information from a ckmame(1) database. dumpgame can also find roms matching a particular checksum.

dumpgame supports the following options:

-b, --brief
Use brief mode: don't output ROM and disk information.
-c, --checksum
Look for a ROM by checksum (instead of the default behaviour to look for a game by name).
-D dbfile, --db dbfile
Use database dbfile instead of the default “mame.db”.
-d, --disk
Look for a disk by checksum (instead of the default behaviour to look for a game by name).
-h, --help
Display a short help message.
-V, --version
Display program name and version number.

The game argument can also be one of the following special keywords:

/dat
Names of the datfiles used for creating the database, and their descriptions.
/detector
Name and version of the CMPro XML header skip detector used (if any).
/hashtypes
Types of checksums used (crc, md5, sha1). One line each for roms and disks.
/list
Same as /list/game.
/list/disk
List names of all disks in the database.
/list/game
List names of all games in the database.
/list/sample
List names of all games with samples in the database.
/stats
List some statistics about the contents of the database.

ENVIRONMENT

MAMEDB
Location for the database file. Can be overridden with the -D option. Defaults to “mame.db”.

dumpgame pacman
Display all roms matching the checksum “c1e6ab10”:
dumpgame -c c1e6ab10
