How to transfer specific roms from whole Romset?
« on: September 18, 2022, 02:54:20 PM »
I have 311 roms which are sorted in "favourite" caetgory in FBNeo. Now I want to transfer them in my android device to play them on RetroArch. What's the easiest way to find those specific roms from the Romset and transfer them to mobile easily? Any help would be appriciated.

Here's a little script that will copy just the arcade favorites.
To use it: put it in the same dir(folder) as fbneo.exe, make a new dir named "favroms" then run copyfavs.cmd.  Your favorite roms will end up in this new directory.
Note: if your arcade roms are in roms\arcade, edit copyfavs.cmd and change:
SET Source=roms  to  SET Source=roms\arcade

Does your android have a sdcard slot?  I'd just copy the files from favroms to the sdcard then pop it in your android. 

best regards,

I've done what you instructed and the script can't find roms for some reason. Showing these strings of command lines after running copyfavs.cmd.

E:\Games\FBNeo>XCOPY /F /Y "roms\arcade\varth.zip" "favroms\" File not found - varth.zip 0 File(s) copied
E:\Games\FBNeo>XCOPY /F /Y "roms\arcade\wof.zip" "favroms\" File not found - wof.zip 0 File(s) copied
E:\Games\FBNeo>XCOPY /F /Y "roms\arcade\xmcota.zip" "favroms\" File not found - xmcota.zip 0 File(s) copied
E:\Games\FBNeo>XCOPY /F /Y "roms\arcade\xmvsf.zip" "favroms\" File not found - xmvsf.zip 0 File(s) copied

....... and so on.

From the fbneo directory:
does roms\arcade\varth.zip (for instance) exist, or do you have them somewhere else?

All my roms are in 7z format. I think that's why this issue happening. Any chance of edit and fix the CMD file for this?

Edit: nevermind edited the cmd myself changing "%Source%\%%~F.zip" to "%Source%\%%~F.7z" and worked like a charm. Thanks a ton dink  :biggrin:
