Hi,

I have copied Philo's wiki OMR tutorial to the main site.

Is it possible to make a LDR file OMR compliant or does it only works with MPD files?
Well an LDR is just a single file MPD so it should work.
As far as I know that's perfectly fine. I already uploaded a few .ldr files to omr.ldraw.org too.
Only thing is that MPDCenter doesn't really work with ldr files.
Looks like there is a little credit issue here Wink http://omr.ldraw.org/file/52
MPDCenter works with ldr files! But MPDCenter is NOT designed for OMR checking. It is designed for working with mpd content files. But I will have a look at the source code for your wish to have MPDCenter as THE checking tool for OMR conformity.
Well, yes it works with ldr files, but I believe there were some minor things that didn't work (very well). I can't remember what it was though and it was nothing major or anything.

Isn't it already a bit like that? I mean, probably most people use MPDcenter for checking OMR conformity right? I also use it to update ~moved references and remove inlined parts (because official ones exist). I've checked every file at omr.ldraw.org, A LOT of the models from the originial omr zip file weren't updated in a long time and included all kinds of those.
Oops. Fixed Wink

Is there a way to track which models still use inofficial / inlined files based on a specific library version? Or is this step done every time a new part library update is released?
Well, I was actually thinking about this earlier today. At the moment, there isn't any automatic checking of models already on the site. I doubt if that's really needed though (aside from the fact if it's possible); there are only about 2 parts releases a year. So, when there's a new part release, I can download all models from the website and run them through an offline program that checks them and then update the ones with changed parts.

As far as I know though, there's not a piece of software at the moment that can bulk check a lot of files one after another.

Of course, in an ideal world the whole website would be automated. And maybe it will be in the future, but at the moment it isn't Wink
