Final Burn Alpha gamelist question
« on: November 30, 2016, 11:48:33 pm »
Hi everybody. :smilie:

I was searching in the final burn alpha github  and i found this:

https://github.com/libretro/fbalpha/blob/master/gamelist.txt

In this gamelist some games are marked with "X=excluded from build". Example :  Street Fighter II' - Champion Edition (bootleg, Brazil) and many more games.
But at the top says: "This list contains all games supported by FB Alpha.", so all those games from this list are supported but not included, so my question is:
 Why some games are not included in the final release of Final Burn Alpha but they are marked like supported?
Yes, i know that some games are marked like not working but some games maybe are working because just some games are marked with "X=excluded from build".
Well thank you for read me.

That's not final burn alpha github, their repository (which i think is svn ?) is private.
That's fbalpha-libretro's github, a crossplatform port of fbalpha which run behind retroarch (an advanced frontend which runs a lot of emulator).
I'm not exactly sure what this "excluded from build" means, seems like a game that worked in some release of fba but was "commented out" later ?

Excluded from build is BurnDriverX.

Mainly used for documentation of region hacks and other such "garbage".
