« on: January 21, 2021, 04:17:56 AM »
Here is a script that will help many people to easily and quickly create the list of favorites with file backup, this script was developed by a member of the forum "StackOverflow BR" All credits of the script to the friend "It Wasn't Me", basically you should copy the code below and save it as .bat or .cmd, change to the path of your "Romlists", where the .tag files are stored and execute the script.

Code: [Select]
@echo off

set /a "_tag=0"
set /a "_num=0"

rem *Place " " Place the path of your romlist folder.

cd /d "D:\AM-2.6.1\Romlists"

setlocal EnableDelayedExpansion
