    Seems to be some unspoken standard to put dummy files in empty directories.
    Probably some lousy archivers in the past weren't making empty directories upon extracting.

    As for "romh was here"... it was a joke pSX Author used that came from some forum/discussion site ages ago. I don't remember exactly where he said it was from though.

    I believe it's a reference to the old mascot of RomHacking.net, from even before the site became that and was know as the Whirlpool. It was a badly drawn dinossaur, a T-Rex if I remember right. I always thought it was quite a random reference.

    Well, maybe I'm wrong though, I don't know what the pSX author ever said about that.

    Edit: here he is:

    Yes! You are exactly right, thank you. Can't believe I forgot that. That was exactly what he was referencing. Except that almost nobody got it... lol.
