Folder/directory seen as rom????
« on: November 03, 2018, 10:30:39 PM »
Is it possible to get a folder to be recognized as a rom in attract mode? How would I enter that in the emulator cfg?

@ Manual do Fliperama
for example ZSNES.
Rompath : C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\ROMS
contains romfiles with extension : .smc

>one romfolder:
executable           C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\zsnesw.exe
args                 -m "[romfilename]"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\ROMS
romext               .smc;.sfc

>one romfile per folder:
rename folder to same name like romfile:
C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\ROMS\MyGame123\MyGame123.smc

executable           C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\zsnesw.exe
args                 -m "[romfilename]\[name].smc"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\ROMS
romext               <DIR>

or

executable           C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\zsnesw.exe
args                 -m "[rompath]\[name]\[name].smc"
rompath              C:\attract\EMU\ZSNES\ROMS
romext               <DIR>
