using catver.ini
« on: July 09, 2014, 06:40:00 AM »

I'm trying/failing to use the example filters from the wiki,

Where do I put catver.ini ?
Is it case sensitive?

Do I need a special command to read it?

in the emulator configuration, one of the fields is called 'additional import files' or something like that.  Put the full path to your catver.ini file in there and then regenerate your romlist.  That should pick up the categories.
