Game info
« on: August 05, 2017, 09:28:23 AM »
Im using Mame, mess for Colecovision and Atari 2600, and Vice for C64.  Using the display Flat Blue with Mame shows the year the game was created as well as the company who created it.  Not so with the Mess games as well as vice.  Some here and there show, but most do not.  How can I get this info to display with these?

I can edit the romlists, but isnt there a way to have the romlist updated automatically?  Scraping worked fine on the regular mame romlist, but when I use it on the other consoles it just adds the roms, and not the year and company who makes the them.

Its depends on the system, for example when you scrap against thegamedb.net, you need to put exactly the name of the system ...

hit tab > emulators > search your system (Atari 2600 for example), be sure that your system indentifier name is Atari 2600 and that is.
