So I have been looking around the net for dat files and found some. But they are just dat format and not xml and the ones that are in xml that link to dats dont import any information for my roms. I saw a post on setting up mame games but I am more involved in the nes,snes,genisis and n64 roms.

Any help on were to get database files that actually work with importing would be awesome.

    I've been manually updating my database, but it's going to take forever. If I complete any sets I'll be sure to post my xml file (I'm nearly done with the NES ones), but you may not have the exact same rom names. I've found no way yet to import any data to have all my roms be updated automatically. I really hope this gets implemented in the plugin soon as I do not looking forward to manually updating SNES, N64, and Sega Genesis ones....

    UPDATE: Via checking the log files myself, I saw that when the EPG refresh was working, an event was logged for each time the grabber started and stopped. However after it apparently stopped working, no events of any kind were logged - even when I clicked the button to manually refresh. I still have no idea what caused this. Anyway...
