FB Alpha Erotic / Adult games list
« on: November 22, 2021, 02:27:22 PM »
Greetings. I hope I'm in the right place.
I'll get right to the point: I bought a handheld gaming console called an "RS-97" with "6000 included games" for my niblings, they are 7 and 5 years of age. Granted, most of the included ROMs are for the NES / SNES / GG /Genesis etc. but almost 500 ROMs are included for FBA (version 0.2.97.35 for OpenDinguX).

While trying to figure out how to work this console (I am not a gamer myself) I've stumbled upon some games which are not suitable for children. Namely:
Fantasia
Fantasia II (Explicit)
Gals Panic

I assume there are more, and I would like to remove every adult game from the console but I really don't have the time to check each and every one.
My question is: Is there a list of adult games for FBAlpha / FBNeo somewhere? It will greatly assist me in making this console safe.
If it's any help, here is a link to all the FBA ROMs on the device:

Thanks in advance.

I don't mean to start something, but you paid for a product that bundles FBA illegally, then ask for support from the developers who did not get a single cent from your purchase. Imagine how they must feel about this.

I would imagine that they feel no animosity toward me or my question. But I'm no expert on this subject so I might be wrong.

There's a batch file that should delete all of the adult roms as long as they're in the "roms" subdirectory.
Here's the batch file, attached to this message:

p.s. you can edit the subdirectory if it happens to be different than "roms", look for "cd roms'

Many thanks dink! Unfortunately, it looks like this batch file removes many non-mature games as well, E.G. the Goldenaxe and Metal Slug games as well as others.
Here is the list of games removed with DELETER:
https://pastebin.com/9gdjiheJ

However, poking inside the batch file shows it is intended to work with MAME files, not FBA.
Prior to posting this thread I googled for ways to remove mature ROMs from FBA and found some helpful results, but they were all regarding MAME and not FBA, like this post, for example:
https://retropie.org.uk/forum/topic/18692/removing-hiding-adult-games
I assumed the ROM file names differ from MAME to FBA. Also, I assumed that FBA has games which are not emulated by MAME.

However, if, as I now suspect, both of these assumptions were incorrect, then I can use the removal methods I found for MAME. For example, I found the file mature.ini here:
https://www.progettosnaps.net/catver/
So I just added all the ROM files in it to a batch file with a "del" command and the resulting files that were removed seem to be actually all mature games. Here is the list of games removed with mature.ini del.bat:
https://pastebin.com/WBxnu9My

I attached the batch file to this post.
But now my question is, were both of my previous assumptions wrong? Are the MAME and FBA file names all identical?

The arcade game roms share the same names, so the scripts for mame will work just fine.
Sorry about that script deleting a few good games, someone posted it to this forum a while back and I didn't really look at it other than a quick perusal to make sure it didn't contain malevolent code.  Thanks for sharing the removal script you put together.

best regards,

How would you feel if someone stole something from you, sold it, then the guy who bought it would contact you for customer support ?
Ok, i suppose you didn't know buying this emulator was against our license, so i don't feel any animosity towards this. I suppose you didn't know either that buying roms is illegal ? :rolleyes:

@dink you really are the kindest person i know !

Hi

Maybe an option in the .ini file that could allow +18 games to be hidden would be a nice addition (not sure if it the option is there yet)

hidematuregames=yes

So in this way we could hide +18 games from the frontend without deleting them from a full romset.

Then again, what is or is not a mature game is very subjective.
