- I'll see what I can do. It almost sounds like a simple renaming tool would work for the SMAP idea. My other idea may have to wait...
Edit: OK, I threw something together. smapRenamer v0.1.
This little app will search for all *.SMAP files in the current folder and all subfolders and performing renaming operations. For example, you could unpack each archive to its own subfolder and run this from up top to do all your sets at once.
It's written in C# with source included if you want to monkey with it.
Edit 2: Made a quick change, re-download if you somehow got it in the 3 mins the old link was up.

- this is great, i've been using it on the few untagged sets i have for which i somehow avoided deleting the smaps like i usually would. what's awesome is that the original sequence filenames are actually on the whole very descriptive - in fact, i'd go out on a limb and say that it'd be possible to somewhat reliably tag many soundtracks with just the filenames alone (though some game experience is always better.)
i think if you (Knurek) did go ahead and update all the sets to add original filenames, it might be an idea to start a more serious tagging initiative :b try and encourage some others to tag some sets. i'd be down.
anyway, once again, very cool. thanks for making this.

- Massive thanks, now I have a massive undertaking of running this on all the sets and uploading the updated archives to the servers.

- Don't forget that it will process all of them in a single "run" if you have them in their own subfolders. Just run it from a "top" folder.
It won't upload though ;) Thanks, as always, for the efforts.

- Okay, guys and gals, after some consideration, I sadly announce that things will change with the upcoming Manly update.
Mostly on the account of me having a life and wanting to keep said life.
It's just that I'm fine with ripping tunes, I'm also fine with uploading them. But updating the site's database after each update feels like such a chore it's been turning me off the updates for quite a while.
So, with the upcoming update Manly will change to match all my other hcs64 sub-sites - meaning no fancy HTML anymore *but* more rips faster than ever.
I think that's a fair trade-off, don't you agree?
And if anyone's willing to keep updating the site in my stead, then do so by all means. I just want the tunes on my hard-drive and on the site for all of you to listen to as well.

- Could you make note via filename which are tagged or not?
Or perhaps branch off and have all tagged sets in 2sf.hcs64.com/tagged/ ?

- Thanks for your dedication lo these many years, Knurek. If anyone else wants to take a stab at updating the listings, let me know and I'll show you what the system looks like (hint: I wouldn't wish it on anyone)

- knurek, no worries! everyone appreciates the amount of work you have (and still do) put in, it's a mammoth task to have to create+curate sets AND update a web page.
having said that, how about this for a quick and dirty solution: rather than editing html indexes manually every time (urrrghh), it could be done remotely via a script to generate html pages based off of text files that contain metadata for each xsf set (the way vgmusic.com does it. example.) something like that could be used in all the xsf indexes. i'm sure that'd make life easier in the long term, but would need to be weighed against the initial investment of time to set it all up. something to think about anyway. the sets are the important thing, and most of the information that would be there is available elsewhere.

- 1. Would it be possible for the current version of the Manly Archive to exist as an out-of-date interface in addition to the conventional raw directory?
2. Exactly what makes the system more complicated than just manual HTML updates like Lunar is referring to? (not that those don't take a lot of time)
