Filters - SHMUP's

https://github.com/mickelson/attract/wiki/Example-filters

1) Downloaded and configured AM to import CATVER.INI
2) Pasted in the filter below into the attract.cfg file

   filter               "SHMUPs"
      rule                 Title not_contains bootleg|prototype|Sports|Trivia|Quiz|Mahjong
      rule                 Year not_contains ?
      rule                 Manufacturer not_contains bootleg
      rule                 Category contains "Shooter / Flying"
      rule                 Players equals 1|2
      rule                 Rotation equals 90|270
      rule                 Control contains joystick
      rule                 Control contains 2-way|4-way|8-way
      rule                 Status equals good|imperfect
      rule                 DisplayCount equals 1
      rule                 DisplayType equals raster

When I open AM, no roms show up. (I have all roms from a complete rom set)

When I remove the filter config text from the cfg file, all my roms show back up in AM.

Any help would be greatly appreciated.

Check your romlist to make sure catver.ini was imported. Start your filters at a minimal category contains “x”. If it works, then add to it and see when it breaks.

Thank you very much for the reply. Is there anything in particular I'm looking for to verify that catver.ini was actually imported?

Open up the file in a text editor. You will either see the category data or not. Its very self explanatory.
