Ahh If I only could do that.  I have the extremely unfortunate "luck" to be born with the dreaded "must have all  mame ROMs for complete  collection no matter how obscure or unplayable it might be" disease (MHAMrfCCnmHOoUiMB for short). It's fairly rare and all but ignored by the public at large. No telethons or ice bucket challenges for us. We suffer alone....

Bam! You, my friend, are the man.  It was simply a case situation. Once again Ive successfully defended my noob crown!

Seriously though, thanks for  your input and help. I'm really diggin Attract Mode and use it as my go to front end now. Thanks for your hard work....

Wouldn't that filter out more that just the Fruit Machines?  Blackjack and cardgames etc?

Looking at my mame romlist (mame.txt) that has been generated with catver.ini, here is a example listing:

m4tenten__aj;10 X 10 (Barcrest) (MPU4) (set 47);mame;m4tenten;199?;Barcrest;Fruit Machines;1;;;preliminary;0;
Isn't the category for the above listing Fruit Machines?

Another example Im having problems with is filtering a list down to manufacturer:

Rule:  Atari
target: Manufacturer
comparison: contains
filter value: atari

That comes up with zero games too.

The only filter Ive been able to apply successfully is by year.  I'm sure im missing something, I appreciate your help and patience.

Just when I think i have a grasp of Attract Mode filtering, I get slapped right back down to size.  I want to make a filter that leaves out fruit machines.  Simple right?  Ive already imported catver.ini successfully, and tried to filter them like this:

Filter Name
No Fruit For YOU

target: category
comparison: does not contain
filter value: fruit machines

That should work no???

Sorry for the delayed response, you hit the nail on the head, I should have found that one. Thanks for your time....

I know this is going to be simple. but all of a sudden, when scrolling through  lists, they come up rotated.  I rotate it back, yet next cycle through, its back on its side lol....

Id like to think that I pick things up quick computerwise, but for the life of me I can't get a grasp on lists and favorites.  Could someone post a couple of their examples?  For example in mame, i like only 1981 games. How would I go about that? Thanks for your time!
