What is WinROMIdent?
WinROMIdent is a program very similar to Thierry Lescot's ROMIdent for DOS, except it's optimized for Windows.
In fact, it can use ROMIdent's database files to look up CRC values for unidentified video game ROMs
It was written by me, in C++ using 100% new code (except for the publicly availible AdlerCRC32 calculation).
What does WinROMIdent do?
WinROMIdent takes your ROM file dumps, calculates the CRC, and scans the database for a match.
It can identify mystery ROMs, and you can also detect bad ROMs (if they appear as "not found" when scanned).
How does WinROMIdent differ from ROMIdent?
NOTE: To use WinROMIdent we recommend that you download the database files for the DOS version of ROMIdent
It's no-longer absolutely essential, but it's highly recommended, because without this, you'll just have a custom database with no entries at all until you add some. If you were just interested in making your own database though, that would be ideal.

- V1.05 : Feb 25 2005
- V1.04 : Feb 20 2005 : Lots of new stuff.
- V1.03 : Feb 19 2005 : Split functionality now allows you to specify the split level (default 1, no splitting).
- V1.02 : Added a Split ROMs option.
Some games use bigger ROMs than normal, this occured often with the bootleg games, and sometimes with original boards when the smaller sized ROMs weren't available. The manufacturers got around this restriction by putting the data from 2 regular ROMs in one double size ROM. When the Split ROMs option is selected, WinROMIdent will check the entire ROM as normal, but also check the bottom and top halves of the rom too. This will hopefully help you identify these special cases.
