No-Intro Full PC Engine/TurboGrafx-16 Complete Set 20140803
NEC - PC Engine - TurboGrafx 16 (20140803).7z

What are No-Intro sets?
No-Intro is a group dedicated to collecting ROMs of older video game systems for the sake of preservation. Their main goal is to collect complete and accurate collections of old video games. This means no hacks, bad dumps, etc, only clean ROM files accurate to what was commercially released. The name "No-Intro" came from the early days when they used to rip out annoying "scene" intros that were sometimes injected into dumped games. If you want more information you can visit the No-Intro website.

Difference between No-Intro and Goodsets
The most common complete ROM sets you will encounter on the internet are known as "GoodSets". While these aren't bad, they have a slightly different goal and are usually several years outdated. Goodsets basically collect together as many known dumps as possible into one set. The good, the bad, hacks, multiple dumps, all there. No-Intro sets only include one good ROM for each region or revision of a game (usually one US, one Europe, and one Japan). In addition, No-Intro sets are updated frequently as new or more accurate ROMs are found. Basically what you get in a No-Intro set is equivalent to what was on the original cartridges.

How are these sets organized?
Most of these sets consist of an archived folder which contains a bunch of individually zipped ROM files. This saves space, but allows most emulators to still be able to open them directly. Torrent7z and TorrentZip or used for compression and consistency.

How do I extract these files?
7-Zip can extract the main files you download below. That can be found here. Some big sets are split into parts, in which case you will need to extract all of them. Besides that, you shouldn't need to extract anything else unless you get one of the 7zipped sets mentioned above.

Yeah, I'm thinking of switching back to No Intro for the next updates to my Everdrive packs. I've read bad things about Goodsets, and my original hope was to avoid such issues with headers and bad dumps. I switched to them because of the ease of using GoodTools, but that seems to have come at the cost of quality.

well. looks like he saw his ass again over at Epforums. He was hosting rom links to his ED packs over there for ages, yet somebody out the blue, uploaded them to the Internet Archive (torrent) and he then pulled the plug again, removed the links and decided to not distribute them anymore.

Some sort of open source Github thing, were users have to get their own roms, yet can update them via scripts or soemthing. A load of crap if you ask me, as the average person won't do that or have the time.

Tbh, I know SM does not owe anything to anyone as it was done with own free time, yet I think it was a dumb move though just the same, as it does look that way, yet I could be wrong.
