ROM directory names in datafile headers
« on: February 17, 2022, 05:30:40 AM »
Hello

May I suggest putting the rom directory names in datafile headers.

This would make it easier for data operations, everything else is present (game & rom names) but you need to look up the rom paths.

         "Arcade         arcade",
         "ColecoVision      coleco",
         "Fairchild Channel F   channelf",
         "FDS            fds",
         "Game Gear      gamegear",
         "Master System      sms",
         "Megadrive      megadrive",
         "MSX 1         msx",
         "Neo Geo Pocket   ngp",
         "NES            nes",
         "PC-Engine      pce",
         "Sega SG-1000      sg1000",
         "SuprGrafx      sgx",
         "TurboGrafx 16      tg16",
         "ZX Spectrum      spectrum",

From a manually built table.
https://github.com/finalburnneo/FBNeo/blob/master/src/burner/win32/main.cpp#L1166

Would also be nice if the full system name was also in there, have to chop it out at the moment.

"FinalBurn Neo - Master System Games" -> "Master System"

Possibly <system> & <romdirectory> or something ?

Cheers

Sam

can I arrange the games according to their genre? Like every directory for action, adventure, roleplaying, and other ones?

Sure - the default folder names are just defaults, they can be changed to anything you want.

best regards,
