attract-tags
« on: January 30, 2018, 07:48:30 PM »
Pushed attract-tags to github.

attract tags is tag files for the AttractMode front end. It was designed because I was seeking an easy way to include my entire romset and extras while only showing certain games. The tag system is a great way to acomplish this, and even easier with some prebuilt tags!

Includes the "all filler, no killer“ separated into 2-player and 4-player tag lists, and neogeo. Let me know if you guys spot any issues with the tag lists, or have ideas for other lists.

Yes. Just add another rule. :) Give me an example of what you want and I can help.

Tags are now on my fork. Any ideas for other tags, let me know. Will be continuing mame and attract things today. Took a holiday break.
