[Solved] merge content from tag.dat

Post by xen » 04 Aug 2020 20:03

i have old tag.dat file, and i have edited content of those files to make its path correct
now i want to "append" this content to current tag.dat file

so i tried appending that content to tag.dat file , but the tag not shown
i guess because the order alphabeta after appending was wrong

is there any way to merge them?
(i searched and found some solutions below but it not works

1.script solution :
viewtopic.php?t=11776#p105245
i try pasting one tag in the input box , but the tag still not showed
(i post this into input box)
L:\n\mp4.avi|0|||film||||
it does not work

2.tag load solution cannot be used because i already edit the old tag.dat
viewtopic.php?t=20111#p167338

3.i cannot use "database check solution" viewtopic.php?t=15822#p137748
because it would remove orphans,which i dont want to

any help would be much appreciated
Thanks

Scripting?

Load the original tag.dat
Split it on the data: line in a header and main content part
Load and add (ofc the part after data:) the second tag.dat file to the main content part
formatlist() it with "ec" for [format]
Put the original header + the new formatted main content part together and save it as the original tag.dat again
Done...

Your tag.dat to download is empty (the part after Data:). What do you want me to comment on that?

Upload your old tag.dat (that you want to expand) + the file with the tags you've edited by hand and show a screenshot of a folder that contains files that are in either of these files...

Thanks for the help,
sorry i uploaded the wrong files, i have justed reupload the tag.dat i edited by hand (which contains only 1 line in data section ,and here is that line )

Code: Select all

J:\test\053886276.png|0||77|OV051||ss||b136
here is the link
https://drive.google.com/file/d/1_uH0V5 ... u4aLi/view
as you can see (screenshot i attached) when i open the xyplorer , no tag in extra column 2 (the column which i named as "NID"
you can test it by replace that tag.dat in your xyplorer data folder and create a file J:\test\053886276.png and see no tag field in extra column2
