ROM file case sensitivty

Post by Zorix » Fri 16 Mar, 2018 10:44 pm

I was looking at the Packard Bell 570 and 520r, and found a problem with regarding to Linux (and other UNIX) systems. For example in mem.c on line 851, there is a function to open one of the rom files for read: f = romfopen("pb570/1007by0r.bio", "rb");

In this case, and probably others, some of these ROMs can be different case, and this function will not find it.

Would you please consider checking in a case insensitive manner, and possibly also check against known good rom hashes for integrity?

Thanks!
