How and where to change a games "genre"
« on: January 29, 2019, 02:11:59 PM »
Where can I see what a game has as a genre class, for now all games are "unknown" and I would like to manually put in the genre but have no idea which file this goes into. I was thinking romlist but I see a "category" column which seems to have nothing in it.

For future reference, Magic tokens list all the items in romlist and their functions. Romlist items in Magic tokens start from [Name] and end on  [AltTitle], only [Extra] & [Buttons] are are not listed*. You can check the list here: https://github.com/mickelson/attract/blob/master/Layouts.md#magic

[Extra] = anyother info which is not suitable for rest of headings, this works and I have tested it myself you can call [Extra] anywhere on list.
[Buttons] = Supposedly about button layout but I have not tested this myself.
