[Help] Display Favorites
« on: August 26, 2018, 07:33:47 AM »
Hello everyone, I'm working on the Favorites screen, but I'm not getting AM to read all the .tag files that are inside the "romlist" directory, for the new screen it only gives me the option to select a single screen to display the favorite files, my question is how do I make AM read all the .tag files of favorites and show them all in just one screen?
PS: Arcade.tag, nes.tag, atari.tag -----> in just one screen.

Try this:

Code: [Select]

@echo off
setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion EnableExtensions
rem ================================================================================
rem This script basically does the same thing as DM's favorites romlist generator
rem but on Windows [Shouts to him for the pi version ;)].
rem How it works:
rem It grabs all the (tagged) favorites from every tag file, searches for them
rem through all the romlists, then generates a romlist called Favorites.txt

rem Default path (on windows). This should point to your attract modes romlists dir
cd "C:\HyperArcade\romlists\"

echo ==========================================================

sleep 1

echo - Backing up old Favorites.txt file

)

echo - Gathering list of favorites (tag files)

Change this path in batch file C:\HyperArcade\romlists\ for your path.  8)

yes I changed the path, but I get error in other favorites, when the names of the files contain space, the program does not read, it simply gives this message.

test please:

Check that the files are not read only. Check the permissions of the files. And run the batch as administrator. I do not have any problem.

And if you're working on disk C: I advise you to change from disk, to D:, for example, with a new partition or another disk.

thank you! I tried in all ways but it does not work for me, just like disc, C :, D:, E: and F: no directory, it does the work for MAME games but when it arrives on other console it gives the image error above.

Hi, I tried to use this script to create my favorites list, but when I try to insert a game with multiple names separated by space for example Tetris (Japan)
 of a .tag list the script does not find the word (Japan) giving error FINDSTR: CANNOT OPEN FILE (Japan) and does not create the list, then if I insert a game like sf2 it inserts all the games of the same list starting with sf2 for example
sf2; sf2; CPS1 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
sf2ce; sf2ce; CPS1 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
sf2hf; sf2hf; CPS1 ;;;;;;;;;;;;;;
How to solve?
