Hello everyone !!!

I have a problem generating gamelist for FBA Neo core, provided by retroarch 1.8.2 ...
I have selected the Rom path, the emulator path, with the relative arguments to load the core, and set on "import_extra" the path for the "FBANEO- no clones.dat" file.

So i launched AM and select generate gamelist, but with no result. i have only roms filenames but not game names ....

What's my fault ?

Thank you for your answer, have a nice day ! :D

Hi,
I am also on windows/retroarch and it looks like this...

executable           x:\RetroArch\retroarch.exe
args                 -f -L X:\Retroarch\cores\fbneo_libretro.dll "[romfilename]"
rompath              x:\RetroArch\Games\FBNeo - Arcade Games\ROMS\
romext               .zip;.7z
system               Arcade
import_extras        x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\Catver.ini;x:\RetroArch\Games\FBNeo - Arcade Games\listxml.xml
artwork    flyer           x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\flyers
artwork    marquee         x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\marquees
artwork    snap            x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\snap;x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\video
artwork    wheel           x:\RetroArch\Games\MAME\wheel

I have mame installed too...you have to change the folders...
The standalone version of FBAlpha creates the latest listxml.dat for the core v0.2.97.44... think I have changed the ending to .xml to get it accepted in AM...
...or download I think I had also a github link for FBNeo...
...if you have one try to change to ending from .dat to .xml

Would have added my listxml.xml but its to large, sorry...:(

...I would set filter like no clones etc later in AM....

Thank you Damonxxx For your answer !!!

I have downloaded the .dat from Github, and placed it in the same directory of Romset but no results ... I also tried to change the extension from .dat to .xml but no success ...
The only difference with your config is that my roms folder is not in the same path of retroarch; maybe this wold be the reason ? I have Mame 0.200 installed too and i don't have any problem with LISTXML.xml ... 

now i will try to add the catver.ini into the extras of FBANEO config ...

thank you again for your help ! :D
